With Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones out of the picture MIB is just there and if we are not careful it will be easy to fall asleep watching this so called action film.
Following MIB III in which Agent Jay (Will Smith) travels back in time and works with a young Agent Kay to manage the safety of the Apollo 11 Moon flight, which was filled with action and comedy and it even gave us references the Mets and Spaulding baseballs made in Chicopee, Massachusetts is difficult and this version does not live up to the others.
International is the story of new agent played by Tessa Thompson, agent M who joins agent H (Chris Hemsworth) to defeat the Hive, a parasitic race who invade other planets by merging with the DNA of the conquered species. The two agents must battle a Hive invasion at the Eiffel Tower but Agent H is somewhat passive after years of action and needs a push by the new young woman agent.
Emma Thompson is Agent O who hires Agent M based on instinct even when thinking the young women is not quite up to standards. Of course we find out she is quite good at the job and she helps save the World.
There are attractive pictures and scenes in Paris but International fails to gives us any of the fun and tension of the first three films.
Three Men In Black would have been just enough.
