An unnecessary sequel to a mostly forgettable film.
August 24, 2018
Johnny English Reborn is amusing in parts and arguably better than the original, but ultimately it is a throwaway giggle for kids and indulgent parents.
September 28, 2017
Half-assed spoofs like this just don't work and come off as rather lazy and lame.
October 7, 2015
It's banal to the point that kids at the film's New York press screening were apparently bored out of their minds.

"English Reborn" isn't terrible and is certainly seriously harmless...But it does remind one of the glorious past and the potential Atkinson never realized in his movies, even the hit ones.

What the film really needed was an injection of comedy that plays to Atkinson's strengths. He's a funny guy, but this material just isn't worthy of him.

It's really the directing in this film that really fouls it all up.

If you like Rowan Atkinson you will like the movie; if you don't then you won't. I am in the anti-Atkinson camp.

Atkinson revives the comic secret agent that he first introduced in a series of TV ads in the UK, but this thin script gives him nothing remotely like a rebirth.

It does contain almost enough laughs to make it worth the ticket price. Falling a tad short, I would suggest adding it to the Netflix queue instead.
October 21, 2011
To be fair, it's a shade better than the dreary movie that preceded it.
October 21, 2011
Reborn is more of a spiritual title. Everything else in this silly but draggy comedy is pure rehash.
October 21, 2011
Just a reasonably steady stream of closed-mouth chuckles over comic incidents designed for that laziest little compartment of your brain.
October 21, 2011
At gunpoint I might confess to smiling when English pummeled the Queen of England with a tea tray, but the babysitters for the target audience will know that his best bits are burgled from Austin Powers.
October 21, 2011
It would seem to appeal mostly to hard-core fans of the "Mr. Bean'' star and children who laugh at the sight of men being repeatedly kicked in the groin.
October 21, 2011
Joke after joke falls painfully flat. Stay home and introduce your kids to Mr. Bean, instead.
October 21, 2011
Please, Mr. Atkinson, forget Mr. Bean and Johnny English. Give us a Blackadder movie and show the world just how funny you can be.
October 20, 2011
Slapstick-heavy spoof features dumbed-down humor for tweens.
October 20, 2011
The movie no one much liked has a sequel no one asked for.
