Yet another week and we are here with yet another movie review. This time we went for Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson starrer Men In Black – International and I have only one question, “Why did Men In Black go International? Why??”
A lady who took 20 years to find out the secret of MIB and displayed her capabilities and motivation to join them teams up with an arrogant, lazy, proud, charming and handsome man who is also very foolish, to fight crime on the streets on London and save the world from the ‘bad’ aliens and become the best MIB Agent.
The movie started with a promising note and the graph was increasing for the average audience until all the cheesy jokes did not get over, because the movie was full of them rather than unseen and unimagined technologies and much expected thrilling action scenes. The film-makers tried to make it comic rather they should have focused on what the audience’s demand is.
Chris Hemsworth was super-sexy as usual and tried very well to portray director’s vision and complimenting him was Tessa Thompson. We have already seen their chemistry in Thor : Ragnarok so won’t talk much about their pair. The movie also has the legendary actor Liam Neeson who plays the antagonist and was perfect with his expressions, dialogues, acting and command over his character. Kumail Nanjiani has given his voice to one of the most important characters in the film – Pawny who, according to me, was the real hero of the movie. Comic timing of this animated character was on point and expressions were also rib-tickling.
Overall it was a decent one time watch comic movie and might disappoint you if you are an action lover or have high expectations from this movie. The end of the movie could have been much much better and in-depth functioning of MIB could have been shown. While watching the movie I really felt as if I am watching 2 cops with wayfarers and 1 ‘Nebulyzer’.
The first half was still okay but it somehow managed to disappoint me in the later part of the film. I would rate it 2.5 out of 5.
