Johnny English Strikes Again isn't Rowan Atkinson's funniest work by a long shot, but the comedy legend is able to overcome a shabby script with his unique physical comedy skills and commitment to intricate gags.

The plot is ludicrous, and talks about the internet like a confused grandmother trying to send an email, but if you're looking for Mr Bean-like laughs you've come to the right place.

December 31, 2018
A funny but out of place physical romp as Rowan Atkinson returns as Johnny English, a secret agent stuck in the past who must face a very modern threat.

Johnny English Strikes Again is riddled with absurdities, funny moments and laughter-provoking situations. [Full review in Spanish]

David Kerr's crafty direction wisely moves fire and explosions offstage or into the background.

As physically elastic as ever, Rowan Atkinson proves to be very funny in his third James Bond spoof, a nutty, picturesque adventure through Europe that easily out-jokes the previous two films combined.

I said that such James Bond spoofs were an exhausted genre and had worn out their welcome. Now I have to take it back; here's an inspired bullseye.

Johnny English soldiers on to keep the world safe from evil villains. Even if he does so quite by accident.

Fans of the two previous Johnny English films will find this on par with the previous efforts...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 26, 2018
It's as safe and formulaic as many of the Bond films themselves, always reasserting the British steadfastness and gumption that its villains scorn.

Rowan Atkinson's Johnny English is back and he is as funny as ever. Atkinson is love child of Peter Sellers and Monty Python.

October 26, 2018
Johnny English Strikes Again has something resembling a plot, some scenic eye candy, and a few fine actors playing backup, but about 90 percent of it consists of Atkinson doing what he does in this kind of film.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
October 25, 2018
Strings together gag after gag after gag at such a relentless clip that it's hard to do anything but double over laughing.

Those attuned to Atkinson's comic stylings - he can make chewing a stick of gum an absurd piece of physical comedy - will find plenty of chuckles in this lightweight threequel.

October 25, 2018
The film doesn't offer many huge belly laughs - Atkinson has never been one for big comic climaxes - but it does deliver a fairly steady stream of pleasant chuckles, many of them mixed with generous doses of humiliation comedy.
October 24, 2018
"Johnny English Strikes Again" has a few more laughs and far fewer cringes (and stereotypes) than the two films that preceded it.
October 23, 2018
With this latest installment in what has turned out to be a surprisingly consistent series, Johnny English's old-fashioned pratfalls make for an irreverent raspberry in the face of evil.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Taken on its own terms, there is much to enjoy, especially Emma Thompson as an extravagantly exasperated prime minister sporting Hillary Clinton's pant suits and Madeleine Albright's brooch collection.
October 16, 2018
Atkinson is amusing enough, and there are a number of laugh-out-loud moments and extended setpieces. However, it is tethered to the 1990's era of the 007 franchise
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
October 11, 2018
Better than the unfunny first one, not as witty as the clever second one. But it has a bit of sly Brexit bite that is very welcome right now. Laugh until you cry!
