My family and I were invited to a pre-screening of Men in Black International. However, all opinions are my own.
Men In Black fans unite! Men in Black International is officially in theaters and it is a film the whole family will enjoy because we did. Even my 13 year old daughter who isn’t normally a fan of films like these.
Compared to the other Men In Black (MIB) franchise movies, MIB International’s story line flowed seamlessly and actually made sense. With high caliber actors, plot twists, humor, action, life lessons, and memorable characters, it had all the components of a really good movie. Speaking of the actors, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson’s character’s chemistry, humor and comedic timing was reminiscent of their last collaboration in Thor:Ragnarok.
The film had several cameos of some of our favorite aliens from previous films. But the stand out alien in this film is Pawnee. He was a scene stealer and made us laugh…a lot. He is more than just comic relief like the worm guys or Frank the pug. Pawnee is definitely a full fledged supporting character. I also liked that the scene locations, such as Morocco and Paris, were a nice change of pace from the standard crisis situation that happen in New York.
Is it good for young kids? I’ll let you decide but take into consideration that there are bad words throughout the film (which I am not a fan of), minus the “F” word. I’ll add that my middle schooler reminded me that they hear worse in school. There is also a scene in which a character wakes up in bed next to another character and we can correctly assume what happened so be mindful of that when making your decision. Fortunately, my son didn’t ask me any questions about it.
At the end of the day, everyone has their own opinion on the movies they watch but I believe everyone one will find something they love from Men In Black International. My husband wanted me to share that the humor in this film was “out of this world”. Yes, he’s got dad jokes for days.
