Johnny English Reborn, the sequel to the original Johnny English movie played by Rowan Atkinson back in 2003. I can't say I remember much from the original movie, but I can say I was quite excited when given the opportunity to catch the premiere of Johnny English Reborn at GSC Midvalley tonight thanks to Nuffnang.

So there I was getting all hyped up for the premiere, caught up with fellow bloggers, had a nice dinner, took my cute red pillow from the car for Janice to cuddle up during the movie, and we're all set for the 9pm movie. Showtime!

Johnny English Reborn places Rowan Atkinson in his role as special agent Sir Johnny English that plays exactly like a James Bond film, except this movie is hillarious! We have him coming out from seclusion after a really bad episode of depression from a botched security job to work with this agency MI7. Even from the start, Johnny English gives us the impression of being this really straight, comical, but dead serious top notch spy.

This round, we see Johnnie English being pitted against this international assassin group who are bent on assassinating the world leaders. Paired off with another young agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya) who is a young kid fresh off grad school, they both make this awesome butt-kicking spies. Don't be fooled by English's bumbling foolishness, as he definately makes it count when it matters most, to bring down the villain for good. I loved some scenes in the movie which actually got me guffawing out loud until Janice, my partner gave me the "look".

We then have the usual lady boss Pegasus (Gillian Anderson, we all remember her from X-Files don't we), English's love interest Kate Summer (Rosamund Pike) and of course the villain who happens to be a mole in the same agency English works in.
Overall, I rather liked this movie, as we do not really have to think too much, and it really did make me laugh. Of course, don't put too much effort in understanding the logic of Johnny English, about how he can be a bumbling fool one minute, yet suddenly become this really smart cool agent the next minute. Most importantly, Johnny English Reborn made me laugh, and I love to just sit back and laugh out loud, don't you? I'll give this movie a 7/10. Remember, logic goes out the window for this one.
