Johnny English Strikes Again

Who can resist the charm of Johnny English aka Rowan Atkinson? I can’t that’s for sure. He has me in stitches every single time. In fact, all of Rowan Atkinson’s characters do as he plays them so well. He is an expert in combining meticulous attention to detail with slapstick comedy. How can you not laugh?

The latest film – Johnny English Strikes Again – does not in any way fail to deliver the wholesome family entertainment we are used to and the twins will back this up for me as we recently sat down to watch the film on DVD for the purpose of this review.

It’s hilarious and it has a brilliant story line too. It is action packed and your belly will ache from laughing so it really does have the ‘fell-good film’ vibe.

Johnny is reluctantly asked once again to go undercover when a cyber attack leaves all of the current spies in the field exposed. His mission is to find the mastermind hacker and, considering his lack of skills and knowledge in technology, this could be his most difficult (and more likely last) challenge to date.

Bough, his loveable sidekick (played by Ben Miller) also gives a powerful performance and the array of gadgets used by the undercover agent are fabulous.

Rowan Atkinson is a known car enthusiast and had a hand in choosing the cars that were to feature in the film – you won’t be disappointed, James Bond, eat your heart out.

The twins have fallen in love with the adorable spy and would happily watch the DVD over and over again…oh look, it’s raining, the perfect excuse for a half term chill out film, wouldn’t you say?

The DVD is out today (18th February 2019) and has 30 minutes of exclusive bonus features including a detailed look at the film locations and the sets as well as Johnny’s collection of gadgets and cars. There is a section that explores the cast and a deep dive into the legacy of  everyone’s favorite hapless spy!

Johnny English Strikes Again is available now on Digital, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Disclosure: We received a copy of the DVD for the purpose of this post.
