I’ll attempt to keep spoiler free
Molly witnesses something inexplicable as a child. From then on, she makes it her life’s mission to track down and join the men in black. She succeeds to a point, but her first official mission as a probationary agent is a doozy.
– Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth do great in their roles as Agent M and Agent H respectively. It’s definitely a star studded cast.
– Plot 4/5: There’s a mole in MIB. While there aren’t many options for who the traitor could be they do make some valiant efforts to throw people off. Other than that, the plot’s a fairly loosely related string of events that involves a lot of running and fighting. Quite a few points rely on great leaps of logic/convenient connections.
– Pawny’s probably my favorite character.
– It’s not exactly a kids’ movie. I believe there is one F-bomb. Was never meant to be, but I’m surprised at how much Hollywood is letting/ encouraging go into a movie.
– Would I rush out to see it again? Maybe. There’s a lot to see these days. If the opportunity arose, I wouldn’t balk at it, but I probably wouldn’t move heaven and earth to create the opportunity either.
I have fairly low satisfaction requirements. Make me laugh. Keep me interested. Men in Black International met both requirements.
