The Vulcan Kolinahr scene from Star Trek The Motion Picture (1979) is an influence behind the opening scene which Johnny trains with monks in Tibet. See more »
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 »
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")
