I suppose they kept true to the Men in Black name and gave us some good cameos of aliens and hidden locations. I did feel it lacked what the previous instalments had but it did well to stand alone. It was cool to see a different side of the Men in Black and get experience more of the alien life and the different secret areas in the world. I still don’t believe it had anything as unique or interning as the precious films, it lived in their shadows a bit.
It was a very predictable story, with an even more predictable villain twist. I never felt that there was a tense moment in the film because there was either comic relief to break the tension or someone else would come along to save the heroes. I’m glad though that they take the story some place other than America, this made it more interesting to watch as there would be new things to discover.
Even with the big budget I felt that the CGI wasn’t to the standard that is expected from these big blockbuster films. Most action scenes were good though, they gave a surprising funnest to them. Also, I did like the shots near the end when both characters have to fight their equals as it were. The quick snapping form one to the other was nicely done.
As proven from previous films, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson make a great team and have good chemistry on screen. I don’t know if all the comedy worked as well as Thor: Ragnarok, so some scenes had wasted potential and lacked the right execution. The rest of the cast was okay, they didn’t have anything special nor anything break through.
