There was some serious debate among moviegoers whether there should be a MiB reboot. The apprehension about the success of MiB International is evident as there was actually been an embargo on reviews until today. So I wasted little time to review this movie as there was some controversy around its genesis; there was discussion about making this installment a cross-over with 21 Jump Street, but fortunate that was vetoed.
The meat of this story takes place in the UK, with more action taking place around the world, breaking from the trilogy which centers around the USA. Men In Black International is directed by F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, The Negotiator, among others) and features strong star presence with Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Avengers), Tessa Thompson (West World), Liam Neeson (Taken, A-Team, Schindler’s List), and Emma Thompson (Late Night, Men in Black 3, Beauty and the Beast), along with Rebecca Ferguson and Kumail Nanjiani. The film should be interesting based on the trailer (view below).
I expect commercial success even if critical acclaim doesn’t accompany this film. For more awesome movies click here and enjoy.
