Johnny English Reborn Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
In Johnny English Reborn, sequel to that forgettable James Bond parody from 2003, Rowan Atkinson reprises his role as the bumbling British super-spy.If you enjoyed the previous film, perhaps this one's for you. The suspense element in the plot is revealed and resolved too conveniently, and there's very little in it for anyone seeking new and original humour. I'm going with two out of five for Johnny English Reborn. Expect to be smiling a lot, but don't count on too many big laughs.

So what if he does not have a suave knack for accomplishing missions successfully? So what if he acts as a nerd-cum-wannabe James Bond? And so what if he does not fit into the intelligent world of gadgets... this time mystery, spies and the missing link? There's something about Rowan Atkinson that suspense becomes the surprise element even if that means moving from Mr Beans to a sequel of Johnny EnglishAll in all, Johnny English is a fun film to watch at the weekend with Rowan Atkinson showing off his characteristic flair for comedy once again.

Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Preeti Arora Site:Rediff
Ideally, a spoof should be comical in one way or another whereas Johnny English barely sparks a smile among the audience. The sequel Johnny English Reborn, on the other hand, comes eight years too late, at a point when all the gags have gotten stale and no one remembers Johnny English all that much to care about him. Spoof films, in the technical sense of the word, have the licence to be as ridiculous and defiant as they like so long as they pack an exceeding amount of entertainment valueHowever, with Johnny English Reborn, audiences are left wishing that the makers had more clarity and confidence in what they were trying to do, other than cash in on an obvious marketing gimmick.

With a titter here and a, titter there, Johnny English Reborn, is at best a pleasant diversion which doesn't quite have you clutching your while in the throes of hysterical laughter. All in all, Johnny English Reborn is a breezy watch. So much so that it's predictability hardly seems to get in the way.Not as over-the-top as it could have been, nor entirely tepid, the film is as just about as enjoyable as you would think one centred on a gadget-toting Atkinson giving baddies a run for their money could be. A sure enough bet for a family outing, (the groin-related exercises being the only risqué part, apart from a swimsuit-clad vixen who distracts English in his African operations) Johnny English Reborn is a light-hearted, zany, but ultimately, a regrettably forgettable film.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Shalini Langer Site:IndianExpress
"With age comes wisdom", a monk tells Johnny English in this film. And with wisdom comes a script and direction that cleverly weave in Rowan Atkinson's passing years into a story about a super spy assigned to stop the assassination of the Chinese Premier.
