Rowan Atkinson returns to the role of the accidental secret agent who doesn't know fear or danger in the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn. In his latest adventure, 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. With mere days until a heads of state conference, one man must use every trick in his playbook to protect us all. For Johnny English, disaster may be an option, but failure never is.

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.

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.

Johnny English Reborn is one of those feel good films that you put on for sheer entertainment value, good family fun and a chuckle or too. Paying homage to Batman and James Bond the film delights on the don't take it too seriously scale.

The bluray does the film justice with a very impressive transfer and a DTS soundtrack that gives the subwoofer and rears a good workout. In fact the room shook on a number occasions during the film.

I can understand why the critics hated the film but it's a film that was never meant to be taken seriously. It's not often you can put in a disc and the whole family can safely enjoy. Bravo Mr Atkinson, another good spy romp.

I played this twice within 2 days. It is well worth watching. Rowan Atkinson is good actor. It is so funny. Rowan Atkinson is not so clumsy as in the first film and that makes it good.

The inspector clouseau of today.

Peter Sellers was immortal - Rowan Atkinson matches the incompetence with comic timing second to none

I hope there will be more to come
