Comments and Suggestions:
Rowan Atkinson is really a legendary comedian. I can’t think of anyone who can make me laugh without saying a word. His famous character Mr. Bean has always been hilariously timeless. Seriously, I can laugh until now even watching the same episode.
I re-watched this movie last Christmas break just because I have a time to spare. I wanted to watch something really funny. This movie is just right. Going to the film, I noticed how technology helps agents to get their mission accomplished. English used a digital camera in disguise to shot a paralyzing needle to his target. I also like the talking care of the agent.
The first scenes has shown the place of Tibet where English has been deported to be trained and be away from MI-7 for such reason. His training is quite crazy. Haha. He was always reminded about “AGE COMES WITH WISDOM”. And so, he’s just relax and wise in chasing his opponents. He won’t make himself tired that makes his partner admire him but at the same time being weirded with him as well.
The lesson I learned in this movie not to trust in anyone. English has been friends with Simon for a long time. He puts his trust to this person unknowingly he’s the real mastermind. He was also put into danger when he was being pointed out to be the bad guy here. Even well-trained agents like him can be fooled.
Overall, this movie is fun to watch and action packed. I am sure the whole family or your gang of friends will like the film. Grab a copy and pop the corn!
