Let me preface by saying "I in no way have anything to gain nor lose by this post". I'll try and give a review without giving anything away for those who haven't seen it yet. Now with that said where to begin? This reboot from the Tommy Lee Jones/ Will Smith trilogy dating back to the 90's had its moments. If you have access to the original M.I.B. dating back to '97 you'll notice at the end Will Smith approaching a car with a female agent supposedly replacing Tommy Lee Jones. Was she the co-leading actress in this latest MIB? Did the director take a page from Star Wars and make this a prequel to MIB 2? Well read on my trusty friend.
The movie starts out with a scene in the present, actually it was 2016. It sets the tone which you don't realize til about 1/3 of the way through the movie. It then fast forward 20 years in the future. All of this happens in the first few mins so don't be late or run out to get popcorn lol. The leading actors Chris Hemsworth (Thor in the Avengers) and Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie in the Thor movies) are reunited again for this latest iteration. Men in Black: International is not the same as its predecessors, it has an underlying theme of 'Who done it?' which keeps movie goers somewhat guessing and entertained. My major itch was Hemsworth playing the off and on again bumbling agent. He's able to get away with it in the Avengers because its mixed between fight scenes whereas he's not the leading character. Watching him do it throughout entire movie gets old, fast. The effects were on par as past ones and the action was soso. What I wouldn't give to have someone use that flashy thing and erase those 2 hours haha. On a scale of 1-10 I give it a 6 only because Hemsworth starred in it. I'm a huge comic book-made-to-movie guy and he will always be Thor in my eyes.
