The London branch of a secret alien regulation agency works to detect a mole within their ranks. Look. Compared to what people have been saying, MIB:International isn’t that bad. It’s not ultimately all that good, but I have watched and enjoyed far worse than this. This is the kind of movie that is perfect for a hungover Sunday morning. It is slight and passes the time. Sure, it is a bit of a mess. It feels like there were too many hands in the cookie jar trying to establish what kind of movie this was supposed to be. The style is all over the place and the story never really seems to generate any real sense of urgency. The selling point here, of course, is the chemistry and energy of the two main stars. Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are fun to watch together and they do a good job. It just never feels like the movie even comes close to taking advantage of their talents. Men in Black: International is fine. It’s fine. It’s fine! It won’t entertain everyone, but with this series’ fanbase, it is bound to entertain a few people here and there.
