Men in Black International shows that if 3000 Marvel and DC movies aren’t enough, then why bother creating original ideas when you can just recycle old ones and flog a dead horse until its carcass is flayed and has bled out.
The first film was really good, but then the second was awful and, as such, I didn’t even bother with No.3.
This time round, there’s no sign of Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin or even the original director, Barry Sonnenfeld. Instead, F Gary Gray (Fast and Furious 8, Straight Outta Compton), directs Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Infinity Bore, Avengers: Endgame, Ghostbusters 2016) and Tessa Thompson (Creed II, and who last worked with Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok as Valkyrie), as Agents H and M, respectively.
Hmm… H&M? Are they going for sponsorship?
The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.
Also stars: Rebecca Ferguson, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Rafe Spall, Kumail Nanjiani, Viktorija Faith, Penelope Kapudija, Stephen Wight
