Johnny English Reborn movie review

Date: 13 September 2011
Time: 9pm
Venue: GSC Mid Valley

Johnny English Reborn

Directed by: Oliver Parker
Written by: Rowan Atkinson, Hamish McColl
Starring: Rowan Atkinson, Gillian Anderson, Rosamund Pike, Dominic West, Daniel Kaluuya and Richard Schiff

PLOT (from wikipedia)
English attempts to 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 the world.

Johnny English Reborn is the sequel to Johnny English (2003) starring Rowan Atkinson.
This film is actually parodying the James Bond secret agent genre.

I love how the Plot started, especially where English meditate himself at Tibet. He learned skills from his master like, Focus on what you want to do, and there is always solution to a problem.
All these he will be used at the climax.

It's really nice to see our favorite Rowan Atkinson is back in action, love to see how his acting make us laugh out loud.
As this is a comedy, of course some part of the scenes is not logical at all, but as long as it's funny I'm fine with it.
He uses lipsticks

Some parts..I just gave a stunned look.

For Johnny Girl, it's Rosamund Pike.
Rosamund Pike is hot and sexy and
she is also the former Bond girl at Die Another Day.

For effects, love how they modified the Rolls Royce, which is sound activated, the wheel chair that travel faster than the police car and the Missile launcher with the umbrella. 

Overall, if you are a fan of comedy you will definitely enjoy the movie. Just don't think so much and enjoy the movie.

Plot: 5/10
Effects: 5/10
Humour: 7.5/10
Overall: 7/10
