JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN (PG) Two stars

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Culture -

Seven years af­ter Rowan Atkin­son’s MI7 agent blun­dered through the lack­lus­tre se­quel Johnny English Re­born, he dusts off that li­cence to kill for an ac­tion-packed third mis­sion un­der the di­rec­tion of Oliver Parker.

A dev­as­tat­ing cy­ber at­tack ex­poses the names and lo­ca­tions of ac­tive MI7 agents, forc­ing agency boss Pe­ga­sus (Adam James) to re­in­state re­tired op­er­a­tives.

English (Atkin­son) and for­mer side­kick Bough (Ben Miller) ea­gerly an­swer the call to arms and be­gin their hap­haz­ard in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the source of the dig­i­tal skul­dug­gery.

In the process, English meets a beau­ti­ful yet deadly Rus­sian spy called Ophe­lia (Olga Kurylenko), who has been or­dered to kill her Bri­tish ri­val.

Thank­fully, she doesn’t ful­fil her mis­sion and English em­ploys his unique skill-set to iden­tify a deadly threat to the prime min­is­ter (Emma Thomp­son) at a forth­com­ing meet­ing of the G12.
