Not as good as the first one. The introduction of goofy idiotic characters (the inventor and the doctor) just makes this movie worse. The gadgets introduced are pretty interesting. The plot was ok but the delivery was faulty. The chase and action scenes were pretty good. The movie was somewhat ok. Now, did we really have to have the Queen dancing?! The Swiss Army Knife part was pretty funny.
I don't expect kid and family movies to be perfect or an tightly woven cinematic experience. Destination London has a few great gags to make everyone of all ages laugh. I felt it went overboard on some of the characters especially Derek, Cody's handler. The writer's could have tone him down a little bit. Anthony Anderson, who pays Derek, did a fine job.

The dark, bushy eyebrows of Frankie Muniz star inAgent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, ably supported by the natty facial hair of Anthony Anderson (Kangaroo Jack) and the freckled chipmunk cheeks of British pop starlet Hannah Spearritt. Teenage secret agent Cody Banks (Muniz,Malcolm in the Middle) must track down a former instructor who's gone rogue with a mind-control microchip. Banks masquerades as a musical prodigy to get close to a snobby, egocentric scientist in London who's the only person who can make the microchip work. Along the way Banks hooks up with a demoted agent (Anderson) and a cute-as-a-bug Scotland Yard operative (Spearritt). Flimsy, disposable, but only occasionally insulting,Cody Banks 2will most likely entertain fans of thefirst movie. Also featuring supporting stalwarts Cynthia Stevenson (The Player,Happiness), Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral), and Keith David (There's Something About Mary).--Bret Fetzer
