MEN IN BLACK – INTERNATIONAL (2019): The Things I Liked…

Instead of the focus being solely on a big alien threat to eliminate, in Men In Black – International, there’s the pressing matter of a mole within the MIB organisation to deal with.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson and Emma Thompson, my favourite thing about Men In Black – International is the visual effects and Emma Thompson’s character. All the other key characters weren’t terrible but unfortunately the script for director F. Gary Gray’s movie just seemed overly complicated and not as exciting as initially hoped. 

Hemsworth and T. Thompson’s chemistry did help matters. Nevertheless, approximately twenty minutes into the movie, I realised I was missing Will Smith’s Men In Black (1997) performance. There’s something about his comedic expertise that I feel would have added an extra layer of humour and fun to this film. To be clear, I’m definitely not saying that ‘Put Smith in this movie and it would have been great overall’, because for that to be true, a much better story and script is required. I just think that Men In Black – International could have been better, more exciting and funny.

One other little highlight is the well choreographed fight scenes. They helped me to stop dwelling too much on some of the dodgy dialogue, my general disappointment and the cheap plastic toy gun noises made by some of the MIB weapons early on in the movie.

Watch Men In Black – International if you’re curious. It’s kind of fun. It’s just not especially good.

MEN IN BLACK INTERNATIONAL (2019): New Trailer From Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson, Rebecca Ferguson…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Men In Black – International (2019).


Protectors of Earth from the scum of the universe, the Men In Black are back with new F. Gary Gray directed sci-fi / action / comedy, Men In Black – International. 

Starring Tessa Thompson, Chris Hemsworth, Liam Neeson and Rebecca Ferguson, the focus this time is to deal with a new big threat, a mole in the Men in Black organisation.

The on screen chemistry between Thompson and Hemsworth is just great. I cant wait to see this new ‘international’ angle. It helps that it’s set in my beloved London town but really, this trailer is pretty well done.

I’ve been a fan of Rebecca Ferguson as an action star since Mission – Impossible Rogue Nation (2015), and now based on this trailer Tessa Thomson is definitely another new favourite.

Fingers crossed that Hemsworth’s seemingly British accent turns out great.

Emma Thompson, Rafe Spall, Kumail Nanjiani and Davina Sitaram also star.

Men In Black International Release Dates: June 14th, 2019 (US & UK)…
