MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL (M)
A RETURN TO INACTIVE DUTY, US, 114 MIN
Here’s your team sheet for the reactivated Men in Black franchise. Out: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones. In: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson. All other elements remain unchanged on a game plan that was run and done 20 years ago. The story comes out of Mib’s London bureau, where rookie Agent M (Thompson) is paired with hardliving hotshot Agent H (Hemsworth) to decode and defuse a mysteriously explosive alien threat. Thompson and Hemsworth do have screen chemistry (as we know from Thor: Ragnarok) but they do not look like they’re having much fun here. Neither will you.
