Storyline

After an eye-opening encounter of the third kind, the secret MiB organisation's newest recruit, Agent M, finds herself under the wing of the heroic Agent H in cosmopolitan London, when a shape-shifting duo of intergalactic assassins executes an alien aristocrat. Now, with a devastating super-weapon of mass destruction hidden somewhere on Earth, the Men in Black will leave no stone unturned to retrieve it. However, heavy clouds of mistrust and a scent of betrayal envelop the once-incorruptible agency. Is there a well-placed mole in their midst? Written by Nick Riganas

A Pleasant Surprise!
6 May 2020 | by ethanbresnettSee all my reviews

I've got no real interest in the Men in Black franchise. The only reason I bothered watching this was because of the involvement of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson (primarily the latter). Hemsworth proved with Ragnarok that he can handle a comedic script really well, and Tessa has smashed every role I've seen her in. The chemistry between the two of them in Ragnarok and Endgame was great, so these two were the main attraction for me. I'm incredibly pleased to say that they didn't disappoint in the slightest, exceeding my expectations in fact.

The film had a shaky 15 minute opening where I wasn't quite sure, but everything that followed was such great fun. Yes, the plot wasn't anything particularly mind blowing and the final 'twist' was a little predictable, but it was a solid and well paced story. The action was pretty slick and always entertaining, and the effects were good for the most part.

As mentioned earlier, the real charm of this film comes from the cast. Tessa and Chris have such great chemistry on screen and always injected humour and energy into their scenes. I got the impression that they were having a good time making this film which always makes it a slightly more enjoyable watch. The characters were fun and it was a good ride watching them get up to their hijinks. The addition of Kumail Nanjiani was inspired, and his interactions with the other two made for some great comedy.

Speaking of the comedy, I was very surprised - this is a funny film! I was expecting a lot of cringe/goofy humour (which there was a little of) but there are some real laughs to be had here, particularly with the more adult humour. The script was quite sharp and witty in places, excellently delivered by the cast. It was constantly entertaining and brought out some real laughs. The main takeaway from this is that we need Hemsworth doing more comedy.

There really isn't much to complain about with this film. Its a good laugh, nice and light hearted and thoroughly entertaining. Grab the popcorn, sit back and enjoy!
