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

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
