Summary: The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.
This will be a very short review.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. I don’t really care about their characters because whatever, but these two have such great chemistry that it seems like they just wanted to have them be in another action/comedy/adventure type movie to bank on their great chemistry shown in the MCU films. It works because whenever they’re on screen together, I was into their adventure. They work well together, they’re funny, if there’s a romantic subplot it works… they just work well. I would like to see them in more movies together, but hopefully with better plots.
Humorous. In certain areas the movie is funny but it’s funny because Chris Hemsworth is funny, or Tessa Thompson is funny not because the movie has funny moments. I guess I would still chock this up to the two of them being great together and elevating the movie far more than it deserves.
Creature Effects. Of course, we get to see aliens and I think they’re cool. The little pawn alien comes from a race that look like chess pieces and I guess are referred to as such. That reveal was cool. We see the worms from the other movies, we see the talking dog, we get a few new creatures as well. I particularly like the cat looking alien Molly “M” sees as a little girl. Super cute! The movie looks great and so do the creatures. It’s always cool to see how far special effects have come from new addition to an old franchise.
Nothing New. There is no reason for this movie to exist, I can’t even begin to tell you what was really going on this movie. It’s been a few days since I’ve seen it, but I can usually remember major plot points and what not, but I have no idea other than there was betrayal in the organization and Emma Thompson looked great. That’s what I got out of it lol.
Boring. For a movie that deals with aliens and stuff, this movie is boring. I was watching it, but I can’t say that I was invested or even really watching it.
Overall, I don’t even remember this movie to even dig into it. I think it’s forgettable and if you’re looking for a big and fun summer movie, then this would fit that role just fine. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are the best thing about the film because they are just so good together. I probably wouldn’t have given it a second thought if they weren’t in it. They’re funny, their chemistry is off the charts and I like them in general. The movie also looks very good, the creature designs a new, cute and deadly. While the creatures are new, the story is not, and I’m don’t even see the need to have this entry in this franchise if it’s just going to be boring.
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars.
