Today sees the release of Johnny English Strikes Again on Digital, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and we’ve been lucky enough to have received an early copy to watch.
Rowan Atkinson returns in the third instalment of the Johnny English series of films, following the adventures of this rather accident prone secret agent.
When the identity of all active secret agents in the country is revealed following a cyber attack, MI7 have no option but to call upon a retired agent to track the hacker down. English and his sidekick Bough are called up to do their duty and so the fun begins. English isn’t a fan of technology and refuses a hybrid car in favour of an old Aston Martin, with no high-tech gadgetry. Faxes are preferred to emails and he throws the mobile phone he was offered away, no enemy is going to track Johnny English coming.
As the hacker intercepts all Europeans flights and redirects them to land at London Luton Airport, English is using a payphone to contact MI7. Old school through and through.
One of our favourite scenes from Johnny English Strikes Again is when English and Bough try to sneak aboard the yacht Dot Calm with magnetic boots. They barely get on board before they’ve been found and captured. But never fear, English has an exploding cotton bud to get them out of a sticky situation.
With lots of twists and turns Johnny English Strikes Again is a fun family friendly film which we’ve all enjoyed watching. I won’t ruin the entire plot for you, but I can tell you that you will be laughing along with the action. You’re bound to enjoy the virtual reality scenes.
There are a number of bonus features included with the Blu-Ray and DVD for Johnny English Strikes Again, including:
- The Comedy Genius Of Rowan Atkinson – A look at Rowan’s comedic talents – the meticulous attention to detail that is the hallmark of his work. Johnny English combines the best of Rowan – a skilful use of dialogue and slapstick.
- The Johnny English Legacy – What has changed in the series this time around… for Johnny… and for the world? In this piece, we learn from the cast and film-makers how the character has evolved and what’s changed without changing the core of the incompetent agent we have come to know and love.
- Virtual Reality Johnny English Style – Virtual reality might be everywhere, but no one does it quite like our intrepid agent English.
- The Gadgets – Rowan leads us through his notable collection of gadgets as the team provides insights into their creation.
- The Cars – Rowan is a well-known auto enthusiast, and had a big say in the choice of cars used in the film. Olga Kurylenko joins in on the fun and discusses her driving scenes including the differences between shooting for Johnny English 3 and Quantum of Solace.
- Locations and Design – The movie may be all about the laughs, but the set designs and the locations are the real deal. From Johnny’s bedroom, to the MI7 and Prime Minister Offices, and Volta’s suite in the castle, every detail is carefully crafted. And nothing beats shooting on location – from the south of France to the streets of London, Agent English is well-travelled.
- A Cast Of Characters – With a lead like Rowan Atkinson, the supporting cast has to be just a strong.
- Feature Commentary with Director David Kerr
