The UK is in peril. Five days before the Prime Minister (Emma Thompson) is to host her first G12 summit, MI7’s security is breached and every agent in the field is identified and exposed. The only hope of finding the perpetrator of this cyber attack is to bring an agent out of retirement, but with most of them either dead or close to it, the head of MI7 is left with only one choice … Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson).
Leaving his job as a geography School teacher, Johnny English accepts his mission. He even includes his old partner Angus Bough (Ben Miller). But things have changed since they were last in the field; guns and gadgets have been replaced by smart phones and hi-tech cars.
Using his old sleuthing devices and muddled logic, Johnny quickly uncovers who perpetrated the breach – Jason Volta (Jake Lacy), a Silicon Valley tech billionaire who is promoting a system that could improve data management. Ophelia (Olga Kurylenko) a beautiful Russian spy is also after Volta. What follows is a battle of wit versus witless, high tech versus analogue, as Johnny English saves the world from the master plan of Volta – to have complete control of the world-wide web.
Think Peter Sellers, Steve Martin, or Leslie Nielsen in the role of Inspector Clouseau. That’s Rowan Atkinson as Johnny English! With his putty-like facial expressions, uncertain speech pattern accentuated by his British accent, and over-zealous desire to get it right, Rowan Atkinson portrays the bumbling-but clever Agent with perfect comic timing so that at its silliest, Stewart (Stewart) and I (Dena Stewart) laughed out loud.
