A review of a film – Johnny English
The last film I saw was ‘Johnny English’. Johnny English is a spy working for the English government. The film is funny and occasionally hilarious. The movie is also action packed.
Johnny English was employed to solve a mystery. There were three ex-CIA agents who each had a key. When combined together these keys unlocked a high-powered weapon. Johnny English’s job was to locate the keys and save the world from complete destruction.
A particular episode I clearly remember was when Johnny English was learning martial arts in China. He was sent there as a punishment for failing an important mission. The best part of this scene was when Johnny was challenged to be kicked in his groin. Mr. English accepted. The episode ended in tears for him but in laughter for the audience.
This movie was really funny and I enjoyed it. I think the hilarity happened because there was a big diversity between Johnny’s serious and funny behaviours. I would suggest watching the film to anyone who asked me for my opinion. I think I would give it an eight out of ten.
