JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN (PG) Third time is (fi­nally) a charm, UK, 88 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

A third Johnny English flick for British fun­ny­man Rowan Atkin­son, and in a mirac­u­lous devel­op­ment just south of cur­ing the com­mon cold, they’ve gone and made a half­way-de­cent one. The story is a com­plete bust — bum­ble­mag­net Johnny is the only spy in Eng­land still ac­tive after a hacker blows ev­ery­one else’s cover — but some of the phys­i­cal slap­stick set pieces are com­posed with gen­uine skill and cre­ativ­ity. Co-stars Emma Thomp­son, Olga Kurylenko.
