| Johnny English's back
I have no idea why the sequel to the funny Johnny English took at least 8 years to be made. I am surprised that there're no Direct-To-DVD sequels (It is smart not to). Guess what. This is bigger than the first one though I wouldn't say that this is more funnier than the first movie but this at least has some hilarious moments. Surprisingly, Singapore has this faster than in U.K and USA.

The story: The movie opens with Johnny English training with monks in a mountain. He is 'kicked out' from the British spy agency as he mostly messed up his mission. But Johnny is called back for the impossible mission...This is not like the first one. I have to admit that this contains some tense moments and sometimes, it is like the movie has veered off into the thriller/spy genre. It contains more serious spy stuff and people being shot and injured than the first one and the last half and hour seems to be taken from a serious spy movie like James Bond. This also amps up the action by having a number of chases scenes. This still has its fair share of funny parts due to Rowan. He may be getting old but he still has what it takes to be funny. Look at his priceless expressions. The movie mostly packs slapstick and tries to be funny at most times. Some jokes work and a few do not. One of the most amazing things in the movie is that all the actors and actresses can keep a straight face when Rowan acts funny in front of them.

Overall: I enjoyed this spy thriller spoof due Rowan. He is the perfect Johnny English, the underdog spy. I would be wishing for another sequel but again, it's the Box Office. Hope that this makes more money than the first one and voilà, another sequel in a few years time. But please don't make me wait for 10 years.
