Movie Review: Johnny English Reborn (2011)

Rowan Atkinson is back in the sequel nobody asked for! His love interest from the 1st one has vanished but he gets a new one in a shrink (Rosamund Pike of ‘Gone Girl’). Johnny is back to confound his boss (Gillian Anderson of ‘The X Files’, ‘The Fall’ and ‘Hannibal’) and her bad English accent. He fights a martial arts expert, has a rivalry with MI7 star spy Simon and Burn Gorman of ‘Torchwood’ pops up as a baddie’s sidekick. This film is myopic, disconnected and full of un-reason. There is a threatened assassination, a chase around Hong Kong, Johnny beats up his boss’ mother, searches for a bit of metal, overlooks the screamingly obvious baddie, is subjected to a mind control drug, drives around a product placed Rolls Royce and hops around inside a body bag. Johnny’s continual stupidity is dispensable, the climax is ridiculous, there is bad CGI, dumbness and this was moronic.

Best Lines:
“Am I ready?”
“No.”

“Great to see what’s left of you.”

“Goes like the wind, only quieter.”

“Anyone seen the voice changing travel lozenges?”

“She’s dead that’s how sick she is.”

“Clearly you got the name off of a box of washing powder.

“Rich. Very rich.”

“That’s what I call dedication.”

“He thinks you’re a moron.”

“Let’s kick some bottom.”

“Let me not die in the hands of the Swiss.”

“The killer cleaner.”

“You five star turd!”
