I think it is fairly safe to say that the many fans of Johnny English and his sidekick “Bough” will welcome it with open arms and rapturous laughter. And why not!
It has all the silly slapstick comedy of the previous outings plus an excellent supporting cast and a well-written script.
Rowan Atkinson plays English totally straight laced, in the same manner as Capt. Blackadder, being totally oblivious to the ridiculousness of the situation.
This is Atkinson at his very best.
Many other well known faces appear for cameo rolls and all appear to have been having a great time.
The only downside is that a high degree of predictability runs through the whole story. This has not helped by the numerous spoiler contained in the trailers shown on TV.
Because of this I can only give it 4 stars out of five.
