Not even the charisma of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson can make this unnecessary spinoff worth giving your time. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just plain and forgettable.
There’s a mole in the Men in Black organization and a powerful weapon that could end up in the wrong hands, so you could say there’s big trouble in little China. It is up to rookie Agent M (Thompson) to prove herself alongside Agent H (Hemsworth) in order to save the universe.
Remind me again, who thought a Men in Black movie not starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith was a good idea? This is Terminator: Salvation all over again! I mean, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson do make believable MiB agents, they look good in the black suits, and demonstrate some of the chemistry they showed in Thor: Ragnarok, but anybody could’ve smelled this box-office flop from a mile away. The film looks slick, it looks like a Men in Black film, but it lacks the heart and is beyond predictable; seriously, who do you think the mole is?
MiB: International is fine, and there is some entertainment value to be had, but there are so many better options at the cinema. On an off-note, there is a scene where Chris Hemsworth is driving a boat that totally sold me on the idea of him being the next James Bond. I know he isn’t English, but I don’t care! Make it happen! Also, I may be in the minority, but I found the self-referential Thor joke (yes, there is one) funny. 6/10
