Who in this world doesn’t like Rowan Atkinson? I hear silence. Well, I have some great news … there’s a new Johnny English movie on the way. In a world where we are bombarded with new superhero movies every week it’s nice to have a favorite (different type of hero) return to the big screen. Having seen the first 2 Johnny English movies many times, my kids were thrilled when I told them the news of movie number 3.
For those of you who don’t know, Johnny is an elite British spy (think James Bond but not quite) who has a habit of getting things done by mistake. Nothing ever goes to plan but he somehow gets results, albeit with a little damage along the way.
This movie series is a somewhat tilted satirical view of the dangerous world of spies. It’ll be interesting to see how Johnny bumbles his way through this new mission.
Here’s the blurb from IMDB.
JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN is the third instalment of the Johnny English comedy series, with Rowan Atkinson returning as the much loved accidental secret agent. The new adventure begins when a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, leaving Johnny English as the Secret Service’s last hope. Called out of retirement, English dives head first into action with the mission to find the mastermind hacker. As a man with few skills and analogue methods, Johnny English must overcome the challenges of modern technology to make this mission a success.
My verdict: JE3 is due for release 5 October 2018 (UK), 26 Oct 2018 (US) and it looks like another fun dose of laughs.
