The Reviews Are Coming In For ‘Men in Black: International’ And They Are Terrible

Published On June 12, 2019 » 168 Views» By Z-rowe »

If you saw the trailer for ‘Men in Black: International’ then you probably expected this news. The trailer looked absolutely terrible. I promise you that I’m not exaggerating when I say I’d rather watch a 24-hour livestream of random people taking dumps on each other.

That’s how bad the trailer looked.

And the early reviews coming in seem to confirm my thoughts. The Men in Black spinoff currently has a 32% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Most critics are complaining that the film is dull and uninspired. It hits all the beats you’d expect.

Indiewire’s Eric Kohn writes:

Yet ‘Men in Black: International,’ which launches Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth into a bland variation on the same “MiB” routine, lacks the energy or ambition to make its intergalactic stakes into anything more than baffling cash grab. This misconceived attempt to inject a tired franchise with new life ends up as little more than an empty vessel.

And The Atlantic’s David Sims writes:

The sequel buries its stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in a convoluted plot that adds up to 114 minutes of nothing in particular. This sequel-slash-spinoff comes across as a lifeless piece of content, bearing a brand name and a glossy look but little else to remember it by.

You know, I think this is a good thing. Hopefully this movie flops at the box office. Hopefully studios get the message that we as an audience are starting to demand more. I think more people are waking up and realizing they’re bored of these shameless remakes, reboots, spinoffs and sequels.

And I think we have TV/streaming services to thank. That’s where the original content is at right now. Movie studios need to catch up.
