2 of 4

“..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]
2 of 5

“..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]
4 of 5

“..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]
2 of 4

“..it would seem to appeal mostly to hard-core fans of the "Mr. Bean" star..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..in 20 to 30-minute doses, Atkinson is a complete delight..”
by Dan Lybarger [KC Active]
2.5 of 5

“..has only a handful of chuckles to recommend it..”
by Jim Slotek [Jam! Movies]
3 of 4

“..funny enough to make you laugh and plausible enough..”
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]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
