I usually find watching the sequel to a brilliant film a disappointment. With this film, however, that was not the case. If you enjoyed the first Johnny English film, you'll enjoy this one too. I was at the cinema last night and laughed quite a few times aloud, along with many other people. I'll definitely be watching this film again sometime.

The most unlikely intelligence officer in Her Majesty's Secret Service must stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos.

In the years since MI-7's top spy vanished off the grid, he has been honing his unique skills in a remote region of Asia.

But when his agency superiors learn of an attempt against the Chinese premier's life, they must hunt down the highly unorthodox agent. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English is back in action.

With one shot at redemption, he must employ the latest in hi-tech gadgets to unravel a web of conspiracy that runs throughout the KGB, CIA and even MI-7.....

The first movie wasn't that great, but had some endearing quality to it. Almost ten years later, Atkinson decides he wants more money, so he makes another English movie, after all the last Bean film was turgid.

Frankly though, this wasn't that bad, there are the usual sight gags and toilet humour, but thanks to the reliable Lead and great support, the film becomes something okay, and I even found myself laughing at parts.

To the film is childish is an understatement, it relies more on visual humour than the script, and this is where the film falters, the script is poor and needed a lot of work on.

But the narration is steady and the chemistry between the cast is good.

if the script was polished and funnier, this could have been a treat, instead, it's just distracting, and then forgettable.

Johnny English has been 5 years in retirement in Tibet learning the ways of the master. He is called out of retirement for a mission to China to hunt down "Vortex" an assassination group out to kill the Chinese premier. There are 3 keys, or key parts that must be gathered together to have access to a secret weapon.

The first good joke was the "Toshiba" sponsor sign for MI-7 secret services. The humor is more than just slapstick. Rowan Atkinson combines the sophistication and intellect of James Bond with the zaniness of Peter Sellers. Indeed, for those who loved Peter Sellers would also enjoy Atkinson who doesn't attempt to copy Sellers, but rather create a character in his own style reminiscent of the master. The early scene with the cat had me laughing out loud at the classic style of Atkinson.

English is aided by agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya), a sidekick that has his own failings. Excellent use of the sound track. Worth seeing. Simply hilarious.

Good family movie for the older kids. Imagine a good comedy without all that crude humor (okay it has some kicks to the groin).

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Well, 'Johnny's' back, after the disappointing original '2003' film i must admit i was at the time a little surprised that the role was being revisited by 'Rowan Atkinson' ...............however, so glad he did.
Yes, after being suspended, 'johnny English' is again required to serve his country, this time to uncover a plot to kill the Chinese prime -minister, and expose the secret identity of the leading members of ''Vortex''
Well, if you have yet to watch this, yourr in for a treat with loads of ''Bond'' send-ups and many belly laughs the film does indeed redeem the role of 'Johnny English' - Special-Agent.
'Rowan Atkinson' is brilliant, as we all knoiw he can be

Johnny English Reborn has, like its 2003 predecessor, taken a bit of a critical kicking. Perhaps it's unfashionable for a serious film critic to admit to enjoying a film that is clearly made to be an easy-to-watch, silly and very British Spy farce. Reborn is basically a vehicle for Rowan Atkinson's rubbery talents and unquestionable prowess for physical comedy, and while it undoubtedly retreads some familiar ground, is better than most critics would have you believe.

Our unlikely bumbling Superspy, currently lying low after a `balls-up' on a mission in Mozambique, is learning martial arts in a Himalayan mountain retreat. He is summoned back to MI7 to liaise with an informant who will speak only to him and here he uncovers a plot to assassinate the Chinese Premier, sending him on a globe-trotting mission to uncover the truth behind a terrorist organisation known as `Vortex'.

English returns from his Himalayan retreat braver, stronger, faster and with a heightened ability to take repeated kicks to the groin. He is a less desperate character than in his first outing, though still accident-prone and he approaches everything with an ill-deserved but rather endearing smugness.

The film is amusing and diverting rather than hilarious, but there are still a few very funny moments which I will not spoil by describing and one in particular involving an important meeting with the PM and English's broken chair, which had me literally crying with laughter. There is also a constantly amusing running gag where English repeatedly mistakes little old ladies for a Chinese assassin.
