Movie Preview: Johnny English Reborn

I was invited by, together with United International Pictures (UIP), to catch the movie premiere of the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn held at The Grand Cathay.

Our Tickets in a very Interesting Postcard..

Once again, Rowan Atkinson reprises the role of Johnny English, an improbable secret agent who appears absolutely clueless but makes up for it with his quick wit and extremely good luck. In this movie, this secret agent in Her Majesty’s Secret Service must attempt to stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos.

As usual, the hubby went along with me for this one as he's the kind of person that really appreciates physical comedy (i.e. any joke that requires deep thinking is totally not for him *laughs*).

And Rowan Atkinson is the king of physical comedy!

I had expected it to be lame and predictable so that wasn't a surprise. The surprise was that there were actually nuggets of great wisdom in this movie! The wisdom actually balanced everything else thus making it very entertaining!

Johnny English has everything a typical secret agent (like James Bond) or super hero (like Iron Man or The Green Hornet) would have: 1) a great side-kick, 2) fantastic gadgets that could do a million things and 3) an amazing, fully automated, state of the art car!

Come to think of it, you can't be a good super hero without a good ride. Unless you can fly of course.

This is a great movie for people who had worked their butts off the whole day (i.e. dealing with horrible bosses/customers or running after hyperactive kids) and just want to enjoy a good laugh without needing to think like a rocket scientist.

Catch 'Johnny English Reborn', which opens in cinemas today (15th September 2011)!

Disclosure: A pair of complimentary movie tickets were received from for the purposes of this movie review. No monetary compensation was received; all opinions are my own.
