Review By: JAKE COYLE on TQ (Rating 2.0/5 ):

The new Men in Black: International is the fourth film in the franchise and one of those reboot-sequel-spinoff hybrids. Exactly how it connects to the previous three movies is only so relevant, I suspect, in the hearts of its makers. It's just another one.

Review By: David Crow on Den of Geek (Rating 2.5/5):

There is actually quite a bit of similarity between International and Sony’s previous Ghostbusters remake. While this is more shrewdly a soft-reboot (likely in part due to the response toward that earlier film), each have a terrific cast who seem overshadowed by a committee’s litany of compromises rather than a single innovative idea. This is the better of the two, but moments where it directly mimics the original film—such as playing Danny Elfman’s mid-20th century, Americana tinged score from 1997 that was written for Tommy Lee Jones to “retire” to—fall flat when laid over a scene about Hemsworth getting evaluated by his boss. There’s just no reason why Men in Black needed to be revived here other than it exists in an era of eternal intellectual property revival.[Read More on Den of Geek]

Review By: Josh Spiegel on SlashFilm (Rating 3.0/5):

The other problem with the script is that its third-act reveal (because, of course, there is a third-act reveal) is aggressively telegraphed from the early going. The level at which the script calls attention to the reveal seems to suggest that the reveal itself is a red herring (it is not), or that the filmmakers didn’t have any faith in the audience to pick up on their very obvious signs. Where Men in Black was shrewd in its storytelling, MIB International seems hellbent on being as inept as it presumes its audience is.[Read More on SlashFilm ]
