Men in Black: International Review
Men in Black: International is a not-at-all-required sequel for the franchise and yet, the filmmakers decide to make one anyway. If you wanna know about whether the movie is good to watch? Here’s a thing, watch Justice League twice instead.

The movie is a complete crash to the hype and expectations, filled with clichés and not that funny jokes. Chris Hemsworth had to literally make a Thor joke to make the audience laugh.
So, there exists a secret agency called Men in Black, which stands above all to maintain peace between aliens and human, where humans have no idea that aliens exist on the planet. Molly’s(Tessa Thompson) parents encounter an alien and right before they call the police, the MIB agents appear at their doorstep and they neutralize them, the flash thing that erases the memory and then they make up a story of a raccoon replacing the alien. But peeking from the window, Molly sees and hears everything and hides from the agents and a minute later she finds the alien standing beside her. That little alien says a few words and flies away.
From that moment on, Molly decides to discover the secret organization and join it, which she does, just like that. On the other hand, there is Agent H(Chris Hemsworth), who is on a mission in Paris and he saves the world from aliens with his wits and 7 de-atomizer. Now that there is a new threat coming, Agent H and Agent M(Molly) have to team up to save the world again.
I never feel sleepy while watching movies, but this one, I found it hard to keep my eyes open. I am being honest. Chris Hemsworth’s charm was what the movie stood on, but most of his dialogues sounded like blabbering. He was better off as Thor. The technological advancements helped the movie’s CGI to be good, but the story killed the fun. I need Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back, which I know is impossible, but I don’t want the new actors at all.
New characters were introduced to bring in heavy casting and stardom, which includes Liam Neeson who played High T or whatever, which ended up him being useless or should I say, used less. The Taken actor didn’t impress the audience with his action, investigation, dialogue like he did in the Taken trilogy. Emma Thompson played Agent O, spoke boldly in the movie but she was useless too. Rebecca Ferguson had a small role, she played Riza and you know what, even she did not hesitate to disappoint the audience. Kumail Nanjiania, the Pakistani-American stand-up comedian known for his movie The Big Sick voiced for this alien creature called Pawn. And the thing about pawn is that he was funny, but the humor was forced and later became non-funny.
I don’t know if it is the fault of the actors who didn’t seem interested in the movie or was it the story itself. The movie was purely made to grab the money and in the process, they let the franchise down. Kudos to the director of the movie, F. Gary Gray.
Men in Black is an international organization which functions in Europe and Africa too, which is a good move by the filmmakers and storyboard, because most of the time, it’s only the U.S.A. which gets attacked by the aliens, heroes, and superheroes only save America. But this time, the threat is International as the movie title says. But is the adventure worth watching, absolutely no! The alien and agent escapade is totally a piece of crap(shit).
Generally, I advise readers to watch bad movies for once and forget it, but this one, please don’t waste your money. The movie is aimless and the trailer is a big lie. All the expected twists and not that engaging antagonist for the movie made the spinoff pointless and easily forgettable. Sorry, Thor, you made a wrong choice, you should have stayed a god and not become an Agent.
