Johnny English Strikes Again Reviews
August 28, 2020
It is perhaps time for Johnny English to have his license to kill revoked.
July 27, 2020
Johnny English stumbles into the digital age with a stale take on the spy spoof that really should know it's time to go to pasture. It sticks to its formula like glue and never wavers in its tired silliness.

The film's vanilla sense of humour is almost as retro as its protagonist.

The formidable Emma Thompson costars as a harpy prime minister, and Olga Kurylenko plays the unlikely love interest; mediocre white men somehow manage to hoodwink them both.

No, Johnny English Strikes Again won't win any awards but it will resonate with fans of the character and Atkinson's shtick.

It makes you have a good time making use of a type of humor that is a little old fashioned, but it still works if you know how to use it and Atkinson proves to know it. [Full Review in Spanish]

Should appeal to the older generation fond of uncomplicated comedy and, perhaps, introduce younger crowds to the effects of humour that doesn't rely on unnecessary crudeness to land a giggle.
April 19, 2019
The comedy is just the right length for a popcorn-munching distraction, and it is packed with Atkinson's signature visual humor.

While you could never call this a good film, it's an entertaining diversion for 90 minutes if this is your thing.

Johnny English Strikes Again isn't Rowan Atkinson's funniest work by a long shot, but the comedy legend is able to overcome a shabby script with his unique physical comedy skills and commitment to intricate gags.

The plot is ludicrous, and talks about the internet like a confused grandmother trying to send an email, but if you're looking for Mr Bean-like laughs you've come to the right place.

A funny but out of place physical romp as Rowan Atkinson returns as Johnny English, a secret agent stuck in the past who must face a very modern threat.

Even fans of 2003's Johnny English (raising my hand here) and 2011's Johnny English Reborn (raising only a finger here) will be disappointed in this Johnny-come-lately.

Johnny English Strikes Again is riddled with absurdities, funny moments and laughter-provoking situations. [Full review in Spanish]

David Kerr's crafty direction wisely moves fire and explosions offstage or into the background.

Rowan Atkinson does as much as he can with a so-so script. There's a scattergun approach to humour, with gags of varying length and quality tumbling around. But in the right frame of mind, with small children, it almost works.

As physically elastic as ever, Rowan Atkinson proves to be very funny in his third James Bond spoof, a nutty, picturesque adventure through Europe that easily out-jokes the previous two films combined.
November 1, 2018
I said that such James Bond spoofs were an exhausted genre and had worn out their welcome. Now I have to take it back; here's an inspired bullseye.

Stilted, unimaginative, tiresome and utterly predictable - the quality of this comedic franchise is doing decidedly downhill.
