Review: Johnny English Strikes Again

The premise of Rowan Atkinson's third Johnny English film - a good seven years after the last - is that our titular secret agent is an analogue hero in a digital age.

Rowan Atkinson's Bond spoof revival falls flat

The title of this perfunctory second sequel in the inexplicably successful semi-Bond spoof franchise feels more like a threat than a promise of more genuine laughs, if there were many in the first place.

Johnny English Strikes Again review

Fans of Atkinson and of the Johnny English franchise should be happy enough with the new adventure but even they may wonder if the filmmakers could have done just a little more

Johnny English Strikes Again review

It's not for everyone, but there's a lot of fun to be had in Johnny English Strikes Again.

Review: Johnny English Strikes Again

The third entry in Rowan Atkinson's spy spoof franchise fails to deliver on laughs.

Johnny English Strikes Again review

The third outing for Atkinson's parody James Bond would seem ideal for the floundering Brexit era - but it largely fails to rise to the occasion.

The Death of Stalin: amusing, though not clever satire

Stalin dies, giving rise to a lot of averted eyes, thinking on one's feet and winging it in the Kremlin, in Armando Iannucci's passable screwball comedy which might aspire to satire but actually isn't so.

Is it just our imagination or does Tom Cruise make more films than anyone in modern Hollywood? Oblivion is the latest Cruise blockbuster to hit the multiplexes and he's talking it up here alongside co-star Olga Kurylenko as Graham Norton checks in for a new series, mere moments after the last one finished. There's more movie talk from Gerard Butler, plugging Olympus Has Fallen, with music from pop-goths Paramore.
