Empire Magazine

Ian Freer

[A] strong reminder how funny Atkinson is, both physically and verbally — he can make the word “vole” a punchline. Still you can’t escape the overwhelming feeling that his huge talent might be served somewhere else.

For fans of the fascinating facial tics of Rowan Atkinson, Johnny English Reborn may be highly amusing..

Excuse me, but isn’t it a bit late in the day to still be doing spy spoofs? Even Mike “Austin Powers” Myers has packed it in.

One day we'll see a film that really harnesses Atkinson's mighty talent. This isn't it.

...a harmless, somewhat laboured affair.

[C]omedies live or die on their jokes, and this doesn’t have any good ones, unless you count the film’s attempts to make us believe that the lovely Rosamund Pike – playing on her status as a former Bond girl – would fall for Atkinson.

The Daily Telegraph

Robbie Collin

Two pieces of old-fashioned comic business, one involving an office chair and the other an earpiece, are the best things in the film — and proof that cheap is funnier than expensive, simple is funnier than complicated, and Rowan Atkinson is a lot funnier than Johnny English.

A ho-hum sequel to a so-so original.
