In the scene when Molly arrives at MIB headquarters in London, celebrity cameos appearing on the big screen varied depending on the country where the film was being shown. For the UK version Piers Morgan appeared and in the Spanish version, the YouTuber "El Rubius". See more »
First, I'm usually really good at getting close to what the average user rating for a movie is without seeing the reviews on here, within half a star or better. But with MIB: International, I have to break with that and score this almost two stars higher than it got, and I think the main reason is that the reviewers on here didn't like seeing a female person of color protagonist. I can't think of any other reason this movie got scored as low as it did. It's a super fun summer popcorn flick and doesn't try to be anything other than that.
The most major con I can think of is that while the creature CGI is pretty good, the green-screen work looks way off at times. Also, some of the jokes fell flat (although some were quite good).
But on the good side, the main characters' chemistry was great (and for those complaining that Hemsworth was just there to be a "buffoon," were you even paying attention to what happened to him during the course of the story?). Thompson definitely can helm a movie. The supporting roles were all great. And, in my opinion, this is the best Men In Black movie after the first one.
I also don't get why people were complaining about the location changes. I felt those were a great departure from having the whole movie set in New York.
But I believe the hate this movie got was from people hating seeing the lead of a movie be a female person of color, people crying, "but the hero wasn't a white guy, waaaaaah!" Personally, I think Thompson was a great choice for a lead, and I hope people aren't swayed by the other reviews on here and instead go see the movie.
