Men in Black: International Review

Rotten Tomatoes
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

Movies have been my passion since I was a young teenager. I had realized how much I loved going to the theater and watching something on the big screen, and I wanted to feel that sensation as often as possible. I began seeing as many movies as my schedule and wallet could allow, and in wanting to give back to the film community and myself, I wrote film reviews. I first posted them under the audience reviews of Rotten Tomatoes; if I ever go back to those posts now I cringe at the writer I used to be. In 2018, I had the idea to start my own space to post my content and thus Movie Reviews Today was born. I am a film and media studies student at Arizona St. University. I am also a three-year shift supervisor with Starbucks. My hope is to soak up as many movies and movie knowledge as I can moving forward and to share my passion with my readers.
