Johnny English Strikes Again

(France/UK/USA, 2018)

Once more it’s a case of Rowan Atkinson not being as funny on the big screen, with a big budget, as he is on TV with no budget at all. The premise is that Johnny English thinks he is far, far cooler than James Bond, but is actually a total incompetent. Once again, as in the first one, some of the jokes work, and some of them fall flat. Try looking at some Blackadder or Mr. Bean episodes to take the taste of mediocrity out of your mouth you will get from seeing this.
