Men in Black returns with new characters and fun leads. We’re introduced to M (Tessa Thompson) who as a child who has an encounter with an extra-terrestrial creature. Fortunately, her memories aren’t neutralised. She tries to find out who these Men in Black really are and attempts to become recruited by them.
After her career break, she becomes a rookie under the decorated Agent H (Chris Hemsworth). They go on a bit of a wild goose chase after a random group of “extra-terrestrial creatures” and an intricate role playing-like dice piece that turns into a weapon.
Yes, the story is far-fetched and the storyline is the biggest downfall.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fun film with original and unique characters. The CGI is awesome and the dialogue is sharp and funny at times. Pawny (voice of Kumail Nanjiari) is cute.
Unfortunately there isn’t a cameo from Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones, instead, we get Emma Thompson’s ‘Agent O’ and Frank.
Spoiler: Thank goodness the leads don’t get together! The ending is lame enough.
Men in Black in cinemas is recommended for true fans of the franchise or Chris Hemsworth fan-club members.
