Review by Mr. Mama Maven
Anyone who thought Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson had great on-screen chemistry in Thor Ragnarock is in for a treat in their new film, Men in Black (MiB) International. The film does a nice job of placing them as an extension to the original Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones trilogy without being heavy handed. Even though I must say that I would not have minded a brief Will Smith cameo. Maybe that will come in the next one. Review: Men in Black (MIB) International
As the title implies, our heroes are not just operating out of the single New York office where all the action took place in the original movies. It’s a truly global mission which takes the characters to a number of countries, across three continents, and to some breathtaking scenery.
The special effects were done very well. It was not overwhelming and the aliens definitely had the look and feel of the original MiB visitors.
Plus, they managed to bring in some old favorites at the right moments to tie things back to the original, and add some cute and some scary new ones.
The action scenes were solid. They might have leaned on the arsenal of guns jokes a little too long but what can you do? It was still a lot of fun.
Check out this funny car dealership prank.
Men in Black International is in theatres now. The Men in Black have expanded to cover the globe, but so have the scum of the universe. And to keep us safe, decorated Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and determined rookie M (Tessa Thompson) are partnered – an unlikely pairing that just might work. As they face a new alien threat that can take the form of anyone, including MIB agents, they must join forces on a globetrotting adventure to save the agency and ultimately the world.
