Rowan Atkinson, Gillian Anderson, Daniel Kaluuuya, Dominic West, Rosamund Pike
Directed by: Oliver Parker

British comedian Rowan Atkinson has achieved stardom mainly from his television series, the hilarious ‘Mr. Bean’, not forgetting two fairly impressive feature films.

Besides a few supporting roles in other movies, this flick (the first instalment was released in 2003), finds him in funny gags and daredevil physical comedy.

Playing a wannabe James Bond, M1 7 operative Johnny English (Atkinson), is in Tibetan monastery learning mind control and martial arts training to improve his life after a disaster in Mozambique five years earlier. Intelligence reveals that a plot to assassinate the Chinese Premier is on the cards. His agency frantically tries to locate English in the hope that the unorthodox agent will take up the task to track down the gang involved. At the HQ, English is given the job to uncover the truth and prevent the attack. He is given sophisticated weapons and a voice-controlled Rolls Royce. With such a lucrative offer and despite making a Mickey of his earlier job, he accepts the challenge. But he has only one week to get to the bottom of the case.

His boss a no-nonsense Pamela aka Pegasus (Gillian Anderson) gives him an assistant Agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya). English and Tucker fly off to Hong Kong, the Swiss Alps to track down the assassin. Keeping company with English you also have MI 7 staff behavioural psychologist Kate Sumner (‘Die Another Day’ Bond girl Rosamund Pike) who sizzles.

Atkinson’s antics are the hallmark here. He takes advantage of a spruced up wheelchair. So don’t miss the thrilling wheelchair and car chase, English playing with lipstick while under the influence of a drug, the cable car scene, and the unforgettable vertical function of an office chair. There is a lot of humour, a lot of smiles and a lot of laughs too.

About one hour of bonus features only add to all the fun.
