The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest, most global threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.
"It’s not that it’s terrible exactly, but this latest instalment of the long-dormant intergalactic-secret service movie series is cripplingly timid in its approach. The closest we get to a new idea is the casting of two women in black – Emma Thompson is the head of the New York branch of the covert organisation; Tessa Thompson is the probationary agent who finds herself relocated to London, where Chris Hemsworth is the star of a bureau that may have been compromised by a mole."
"The usual slimy, strange and tentacled creatures slither and galumph through “Men in Black: International.” Some are cute — like the itty-bitty being voiced by Kumail Nanjiani — but some look like leftovers from other fantasy franchises."
"It’s time once again for what must now be called the Meh in Black, making another intensely tiresome and pointless reappearance, now with Liam Neeson and Chris Hemsworth on exceptionally charmless animatronic form in their dark suits, like Tussaud dummies with a contractual obligation to appear in a bad film. They are equally dead-eyed with or without the dark glasses."
"Touching down in 1997, Barry Sonnenfeld's Men In Black landed amidst the second wave of UFOlogy. An affectionate wink at conspiracy paranoia stoked by The X-Files and early dial-up internet, it proved both dapper and disarming; funny, with a sinister edge."
