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, ... Written by Universal Pictures

Goofs

When English visits Tucker at his home, and Tucker is playing a racing game on his laptop, the movements of his car in-game seem to have nothing to do with his actions on the keyboard. When he then stands to close the curtains and talk to English, the car continues to behave as if being controlled, showing that it's just a demo video. See more »

Annoying and Unfunny
10 February 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson) is retired in Tibet and in disgrace in MI- 7 after a washed up mission in Mozambique. Out of the blue, he is summoned by the MI-7 to stop the Vortex, an agency of skilled assassins that are planning to kill the Chinese premier Xiang Ping. Johnny English is back in action with the support of the rookie Agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya). But he is betrayed by someone that he would never expect.

The first "Johnny English" is a very funny parody of 007 movies. I had great expectations with "Johnny English Reborn", but unfortunately it is an annoying and unfunny. The character performed by Rowan Atkinson is too stupid and his excessive imbecilities are irritating. The writer has exaggerated in his parody and the result is terrible. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Retorno de Johnny English" ("The Return of Johnny English")
