Movie Info

Fifteen-year-old CIA operative Cody Banks (played by Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz) is back in action in this comedy adventure, which sends the youthful secret agent to Old Blighty. Banks returns to Kamp Woody, the CIA training center disguised as a summer camp, where he's given a new partner, the bumbling but sharp-witted Derek (Anthony Anderson), and a new assignment, to track down a sinister double-agent who has made off with an experimental mind-control machine. The villain has made his way to Great Britain, so Banks is enrolled in an upscale private school in England, where he's forced to join the school band despite his lack of musical talent and finds himself working alongside Emily (Hannah Spearritt), a fellow teenage espionage agent. Keith David, Daniel Roebuck, and Cynthia Stevenson all return from the first film, while British filmmaker Kevin Allen takes over as director.

Critic Reviews for Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London

All Critics (94) | Top Critics (27)

Really pretty hateful, shooting for the bulk of its laughs at the expense of those wacky foreign kids and the endlessly humiliated Anthony Anderson.

March 16, 2004
Village Voice
Top Critic

... tedious, forgettable and wholly unnecessary.

March 15, 2004
Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

Kids should be reasonably diverted for a couple of hours, but odds are they'll have forgotten the whole thing by the next morning.

March 12, 2004
Washington Post
Top Critic

Here's just about everything a 6-year-old spy would hope to find in a kiddie-espionage flick, with just a twinge of romance, but nothing serious to interrupt Cody's undoubtedly continuing career.

Top Critic

Kids may well find the film diverting, but there's just not a lot of creativity or energy here.

March 12, 2004
Seattle Times
Top Critic

The same young teens who cozied up to the first picture will probably enjoy the sequel, but it won't win many new fans.
