If you were a big fan of the original Men In Black trilogy with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, like myself, then you probably will be disappointed with this installment of the franchise as it didn’t live up to my expectations and general feel of the original movies.
Men In Black: International is more so for a younger audience than it is for a more mature one, as it focuses on the life of Molly as a child through her adulthood of wanting to learn more about her experience as a child and find out more about these strange men in black suits.
I really wanted to enjoy this movie, but in parts it was almost cringeworthy with the amount of a forced feminism agenda.I’m all for equality of the sexes, but at times it was almost laughable at how over the top some scenes were, especially the one about the “Men & Women In Black”. Some things just shouldn’t be changed.
Aussie Chris Hemsworth is in the movie too, but is portrayed as a bit of an obnoxious jerk, and focused primarily on the character played by Tessa Thompson and her fight for becoming an integral part of MIB.
There were a few funny scenes, but nothing serious. If you enjoy light comedy and something to take the kids too then by all means see it. But if you’re looking for juicy and also funny UFO and alien related phenomena then you probably should wait until it comes on Netflix.
The movie just lacks depth and it’s almost as if the film makers didn’t even watch the original movies to follow the same vibe.
