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.

Rowan Atkinson shows once again why he is widely considered to be one of the top living comics. In lesser hands this film would not have been worth the price of admission. It took me back to the glory days of Peter Sellers and the inimitable Inspector Clouseau. Atkinson is also supported by a strong supporting cast including Gillian Anderson and the very lovely Rosamund Pike (Die Another Day). I can actually remember some James Bond films that I didn't find as entertaining as this movie is. I don't know why it took eight years to get this sequel. I would not mind another outing for Johnny English if it is as much fun as this one. Be sure to watch the end credits for one last scene!!

This movie is a well written, action packed, dimwitted flick with the characteristic Johnny English intelligence (literally.) His adventures and misadventures alike will leave you chuckling throughout the whole movie. But beware, you have to like the persona of Johnny English if you want to enjoy this movie, otherwise you will just think it is stupid.

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.

JOHNNY ENGLISH REBORN (seemingly a/k/a JOHNNY ENGLISH UK REBORN, 2011, 102 minutes) was awaited by me for years. It figures that I see it floating around, hidden in my pay-per-view cable over a year after its release - at least I finally got to see it. Well worth it, as most anything is when it stars Atkinson. This is one of the funniest films I've ever seen.

Five years after the original Johnny English, Johnny (Rowan Atkinson), sporting a lovely silvering head of hair, is in a Buddhist monastery in Tibet studying wu-shu and meditating. There is one more discipline he is practicing, and you'll know it when you see it, which is horrific but is a real discipline some monks practice. Of course anything Atkinson does produces instant howls of laughter. Most of my British friends begin laughing out loud upon hearing his name.

That is well-earned star power my friends!

Through his lama/master, "MI 7" recalls Johnny to root out a mole (shades of Le Carré's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: A George Smiley Novel). This film departs from the original JOHNNY in several ways, which I will leave for you to discover because it is mostly quite brilliant. Lots of it, in typical Atkinson fashion, is not so much in the belly-laugh category as in the wonder-awe-inspiring mode. A bit like Buster Keaton.

You won't be seeing a kung fu extravaganza here, but let's just say Johnny knows how to avoid fights and other difficulties with a panache that is literally unmatched in cinema. THIS would make real life evildoers quake in their boots.
