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.

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.

For the first half hour or so Johnny English Reborn is a surprisingly funny spy spoof that's a huge improvement on the dire first big screen outing for Rowan Atkinson's hopeless yet supremely self-confident spy who was originally dreamt up for a series of credit card adverts and seemed ill-suited for anything longer than 30 seconds. Where that misfired more than it hit, the sequel begins rather well as the now disgraced spy is called out of his retreat in a Tibetan monastery (where he's learning, among other things, the martial art of dragging boulders with his testicles) by a reluctant MI7 to uncover an assassination plot aimed at the Chinese premier.

Some of the jokes are out of date - his sparring with Gillian Anderson's unimpressed spymaster, all impeccable but monotonous pronunciation, is like a flat rewrite of Judi Dench's scenes in GoldenEye that's 16 years too late - but there's plenty that does raise a smile or the odd laugh, not least a particularly well-executed parkour chase scene across the rooftops and along the dockside of Hong Kong where the joke is that, despite obvious audience expectations, English's ineptitude constantly fails to materialise as he never puts a foot wrong and repeatedly outthinks a killer with a minimum of effort.

I really enjoyed this film. It definitely has the edge on its predecessor, which though funny (and much better than the critics said it was) did feel at times like an overlong Barclaycard commercial.

As others have commented the main character has developed since film one, he's less cringey and more in control. There is also some refreshing pokes at the government and establishment here with a boyish Prime Minister and Eton educated villain.

Check out the cut scenes on the DVD bonuses. While not all of these probably deserved to get into the movie, without a doubt some great scenes unfairly ended up on the cutting room floor! Notably the car chase, the scene with Boff (Johnny English's partner in film one) and the full screen version of the cooking scene.

This is an entertaining film and I thoroughly recommend it. It would have got 5 stars from me if so many great scenes hadn't been cut!
