Having been on retreat in a Tibetan monastery after a disastrous SNAFU in Mozambique, M17 operative Johnny English (Atkinson) is brought back to help foil the killing of the Chinese premier. Joined by rookie agent (Daniel Kaluuya) and his spying idol Simon Ambrose (West), English bumbles on a conspiracy that leads to the heart of his very own secret service.
Low on ambition, Johnny English Reborn still delivers some strong laughs with Atkinson bouncing well off good actors like Rosamund Pike, Gillian Anderson and Dominic West. Still given its thinness, it might be best for all the spy to now go permanently MIA.
