Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
London calling! Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz is off to the land of 007 as teenage secret agent Cody Banks, pursuing a CIA renegade who has stolen a mind-control device. His cover: playing clarinet in an orchestra featuring musical prodigies from around the world. Just as Cody's awkwardness with the opposite sex hindered his first mission, here the difficulty arises from his lack of musical ability (turns out he only joined his high school marching band to meet girls, news which is greeted with a hysterically incredulous look by his superior). After only a scant two films, it seems that Frankie has already outgrown this fledgling franchise, but his adoring audience will still get their kicks from his spy-kid antics, complete with Bondian action and way-cool gadgets. Anthony Anderson (Kangaroo Jack) provides some flop-sweat comic relief as a demoted agent reluctantly assigned to be Cody's handler in London. Hilary Duff is missing in action this time around, but U.K. pop singer Hannah Spearitt -- portraying an undercover British intelligence agent named Emily -- is just as cute. No damsel in distress, she gets to kick some butt. Clever product placement (exploding Mentos) and the requisite mildly rude humor will amuse the target audience, but it is the extremely likable and personable Muniz who makes Destination London such a fun trip.
All Movie Guide
Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London has about the usual dose of sequelitis, meaning that most everything is a little worse than the original -- and sometimes, a lot worse. The one exception is the delightful choice to play Cody's love interest: charming Brit Hannah Spearritt, whose animated facial expressions and snappy line deliveries put her in a class above Hilary Duff from the original. Unfortunately, Cody's other primary cohort is where Destination London comes up well short of its predecessor, as Anthony Anderson makes a poor substitute for Angie Harmon as Cody's partner/handler. Anderson's particular brand of bumbling physical comedy is a good fit for many roles, but not the role of a CIA agent -- even a disgraced agent trying to make good. The fact that he's installed as a supposedly high-end chef in a snooty British academy -- but can't make it through a kitchen without knocking everything off the shelves and covering himself in flour -- suggests that this version of the CIA doesn't have much interest in keeping a low profile. Similarly unlikely is the decision to place Cody in an academy for gifted musicians, when he only briefly toyed with an instrument as a child, and possesses a limited ability to think on his feet (when asked about his favorite composer, he hastily provides the name "Heinz" off a nearby ketchup bottle). Strains to credibility are not supposed to be deal-breakers in a movie about a teenage spy, but let's just say the strained credibility in the original Agent Cody Banks was offset by funny writing and a freshness to the enterprise in general. By contrast, Destination London feels as stale as a three-week-old crumpet.

    Excelent movie for kids and teens.

    This movie has a good story line. I thought that it was rather cool for the pre-teen and teenage group. My kids really enjoyed watching it.
