Full disclosure: I'm already a big Atkinson fan
That being said, I really, really enjoyed this follow-up to the first Johnny English. The critics aren't glowing in their praise, but I have to say that I laughed much harder in Reborn than in the original, which I also enjoyed. So much harder. in fact, that I literally hurt my sides at some points in the film. These films aren't about plot or any other niceties - humor, slapstick and subtle both, is all that they offer, along with some moderate acting. On those fronts, Johnny delivers again, and if you go to see it for pure entertainment value, you won't be disappointed.
