JOHNNY ENGLISH RE­BORN

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

SEVEN, Satur­day, 9.45pm, PG ( 2011)

MI7 agent Johnny English ( Rowan Atkin­son, left) has been hiding in a monastery in Asia since 2003, but af­ter some­one tries to as­sas­si­nate the Chi­nese pre­mier, the world’s most in­ept spy makes a bold re­turn. As be­fore, his style is un­ortho­dox and his tech­niques con­sist of ev­ery trick in the book, but that’s ex­actly where his en­ter­tain­ing ap­peal lies. While the film doesn’t ex­actly over­flow with com­edy gold, Atkin­son al­ways en­gages the screen and his im­pres­sive sup­port cast, in­clud­ing Gil­lian An­der­son ( The X- Files) and Do­minic West ( The Wire), help hold this clever par­ody to­gether.
