NEW GALAXY DE­FEND­ERS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - THE WEEK’S TOP SHOWS -

IT WAS panned at the box of­fice, but this ticked a lot of boxes for me – I mean, what’s not to like about Chris Hemsworth in a suit, act­ing like James Bond for a cou­ple of hours? Hemsworth and his Thor: Rag­narok co-star Tessa Thomp­son (pic­tured with Hemsworth) front this fourth in­stal­ment in the fran­chise as Agents H and M, whose job is to safe­guard Earth from the scum of the uni­verse. (OK, they’re not quite Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, but there’s cer­tainly chem­istry between this new pair.) MIB: In­ter­na­tional kicks off at the top of the Eif­fel Tower with galaxy – MIB head­quar­ters in New York. There she per­suades a steely Agent O (Emma Thomp­son) to re­cruit her. For her first pro­ba­tion­ary as­sign­ment, Agent M is dis­patched to the Lon­don of­fice, where she meets Agent H and hitches her wagon to his fad­ing star. When a rou­tine mis­sion goes hor­ri­bly wrong, the pair be­come em­broiled in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion that re­veals a mole deep within the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Join­ing them is a tiny scene-steal­ing alien named Pawny whose wise­cracks come cour­tesy of Ku­mail Nan­jiani. Hon­estly, it’s good, fun, brain-in-neu­tral view­ing.
