Pretty good, 6/10

Johnny English Reborn is a 2011 British spy comedy film parodying the James Bond secret agent genre. The film is the sequel to Johnny English (2003), and stars Rowan Atkinson reprising his role as the title character[5] and directed by Oliver Parker. The film has a slightly darker tone than the previous film but retains Atkinson's signature humor. Like its predecessor, it was met with mixed reviews but has grossed a total of $159,270,879 worldwide.
Read that Atkinson doesn't like making movies.

Heard it was terrible - though the first Johnny English was awesome!

I bet Rowan's daughter thanks God every day that she gets her looks from her mum and not her dad...

8/10 Zero Expectations
23 September 2011 | by adrian-limch (Singapore) – See all my reviews
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1634122/
A friend of mine warned me to go in with zero expectations. So I did. I read a few reviews around the internet about the movie, going on about how the audience weren't roaring with laughter.

Well that simply wasn't what I just been through. There was a scene or two where the audience even started applauding!

Frankly speaking, this movie is a vast improvement over the first one, with heightened unpredictability and more genuine gags.

I think what you'll have to remember, if you're gonna catch it, is that Atkinson is best known for his slapstick (+silent) comedy, and not hilarious lines like Adam Sandler.

If you're expecting a deep plot and clever dialogue, you won't find it in this movie - though I must say that the move has gotten the balance of plot, dialogue, and comedy, quite right.
I gave it a 6, this guy gives it an 8, and 'Rotten Tomatoes' gives it a 2/5 and sez "Arguably a marginal improvement on its mostly-forgotten predecessor".
