Review: ‘The universe has a way of leading you to where you’re supposed to be, at the time you’re supposed to be there.’ This line by High T (Liam Neeson) in the film holds good for Chris and Tessa who reunite on screen after Thor: Ragnarok. Playing Agent H and Agent M in this science fiction comedy, these two make a fine pair that very well backs the reboot of a beloved franchise. Sure, you will miss the magic that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones created onscreen together, but MIB: International has its shining moments to offer if you can watch it with an open mind.
This film is a modern spin to the franchise with more special effects, more aliens, more guns and more locations like New York, London, Marrakech and Paris. You can easily draw parallels between characteristics of Thor-Valkyrie and Agent H-Agent M. Chris’ hammer scene, which is a callback from Thor (also shown in the trailer), will get Marvel Comics Universe fans excited. Pint-size alien Pawny (voiced by Kumail Nanjiani) is a cute chess-based sidekick to Agent M that will leave you giggling with his goofiness and mean gags. Liam Neeson as High T, Rebecca Ferguson as Riza, Emma Thompson as Agent O and Rafe Spall as Agent C leave a mark with their brief performance.
The plot is predictable. So much that you’ll easily guess what happens to the VIP alien and who is the ‘mole’ in MIB. Though the CGI effects are good, there is not much to talk about the action scenes here. The main characters are poorly developed, so you’d fail to connect with them.

Verdict: Men In Black: International is a one-time watch that you’ll remember only as long as next Friday.
