The action of the film begins eight years after the events of the first part. Since then, Mr. Johnny English's career has deteriorated. Five years before the beginning of this film, he was sent on assignment to Mozambique, but the mission went very badly. And since that time he lives in a cave in the mountains of Tibet, thus hiding from all because of shame and accusations of failure of the task. The story begins only when our hero is at a fairly low moral level, until he was given another, last chance. British intelligence MI-7 again needs Johnny, and she needs to return the agent again so that he thwarts the conspiracy of a group of bandits who plan to kill the Chinese prime minister.
