“..your enjoyment of Atkinson's recycling project..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..this is enough of a story to engage audience interest, and in fact there might be slightly too much story..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
1.5 of 4

“..there‚Äôs not much here that sticks with you the instant the credits rol..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
3 of 5

“..the weak plot and general zaniness wear us out before the climactic action scene and comical epilogue. But at least this time around we leave the cinema with a smile on our faces..”
by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall]
3.5 of 4

“..still manages more grins than grimaces..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]

“..many of the gags are good, and it goes out on a head-banging high note. But some ideas are undeveloped..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

“..it's hardly ground-breaking stuff but the script is chock-full of laughs which hit home thanks to Atkinson as he struggles to maintain his dignity in the face of constant humiliation..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]

by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

by Kate Taylor [Globe and Mail]
2 of 5

“..despite the cast's best efforts, Johnny English Reborn is something of a disappointment, thanks to a lazy script, sluggish direction and a painful lack of laughs..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
“..as the movie glides along, it may not elicit explosive laughter, but it plants a steady smile on your face and doesn't leave you feeling molested..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..a redundant spy farce sequel that's less of a rebirth than a retread..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."Johnny English" would have needed a whole lot more of this to feel genuinely reborn..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
