Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London
With all-new gadgets, high-flying action, exciting chases and a wisecracking new handler, Derek, Cody goes to London to retrieve the device before the world's leaders fall under the evil control of a diabolical villain.
Why It Sucks
- Very weak plot.
- Horrible acting, especially from Frankie Muniz and Anthony Anderson.
- Cody's love interest from the first film, Natalie Connors, is nowhere to seen nor is mentioned. She is now replaced by Emily Sommers, a British student. The romance and chemistry between Cody and Emily feels rather forced.
- Emily Sommers looks nothing like a teen girl. In fact, the actress who played her was 23 by the time the film came out.
- Completely destroys all of Cody Banks's hard-earned happiness from the ending of the original film.
- It ultimately killed the Agent Cody Banks film franchise.
- Good soundtrack.
- Frankie Muniz and the rest of the cast are all likable characters.
Review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 14% "Rotten" rating based on 95 reviews, with an average score of 3.4/10. The site's consensus reads: "Young kids may find this London adventure fun, but older kids may find it too simplistic."
