  • Where there's no Will, there's no way...

  • @4:53, the letter C stands for CRAP!

  • It Sucked

  • The script was run through Fantastic Beasts, & tweaked for exotic aliens. The script incorporated The Cabin in the Woods, Ant-Man & Back to the Future. I believe it did reboot the franchise.

  • Background eye candy, toxic female Mary Sue style progressiveness, a bunch of big name co stars, some cuck token white male characters, deadpan humor...pretry much sums up most reboots of remakes we never asked for since 2014 Chris!

  • That Dragonball Z Shirt is Legendary!!

  • i just watched this movie, and oh my god, it was terrible. Horrible editing, terrible dialogues, plot points that go nowhere...i mean...holy shit, i expected a whole lot better.

  • Studio interference ruined this film

  • They had the chance to bring in that mortician lady as a new character from the first mib and threw it out. Now all of a sudden they want to bring in completely new faces with generic plots? Bleh

  • By the tone of voice I can already tell you disliked this movie lol

  • Why 'Stop'? Why not try harder?

  • This movie was shit

  • I would of given this movie an f

  • "woman character with no inspiration" and the story line is bullshit Like she just went to CIA and get the job becoz, the CIA boss take pity on her. For At least the CIA, they jail her first for few years of interrogation before they take consideration of her stories validity and her background is not even enough to take her in.

  • Somebody, Please replace HOLLYWOOD! REAL ENTERTAINMENT NEEDED. Without a remake! I think they ran out of brains, talent and IMAGINATION!

    • And just because it doesn't entertain YOU, doesn't mean it should be replaced.

    • Hollywood has lots of original ideas. For example: -La La Land -Whiplash -The Nice Guys -Phantom Thread -Get Out -The Master -Lady Bird -Inception -Baby Dirver -John Wick -Interstellar -Hacksaw Ridge -Dunkirk -Darkest Hour -Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri -Birdman -Manchester by the Sea -Moonlight -Gone Girl -Gravity -Midnight in Paris -Hugo -The Tree of Life -Her -Brawl in Cell Block 99 -Black Swan -127 Hours -Captain Fantastic -Larry Crowne -Pacific Rim -The Shape of Water -CAM -A Simple Favor -Roma -A Quiet Place -Hereditary -Bad Times at El Royale -Colossal -Under the Silver Lake -First Reformed -Eight Grade -The Favourite -Green Book -Inherent Vice -Once Upon a Time in Hollywood -Tenet -Dragged Across Concrete -Bone Tomahawk -Nightcrawler -Ex-Machina -Us -The Killing of a Sacred Deer -Ad Astra -Knives Out They are all from this decade.

  • GEEEEZ!!!! Hollywood SUCKS! Take a great movie throw some P.C. on it and destroy a great original. This was bad and they keep doing it! They are trying to make us buy this crap?!

    • The originals will always exist, no matter how bad or good is the remake. If YOU don't want a remake, just avoid watching it.

  • This movie sucked.

  • For a moment there, i thought the producers were moving to make Chris's H as an intergalactic James Bond (Roger Moore version) based in Europe. That could have worked, while setting up a spinoff Tessa's New York branch into a "Women in Black" series set in New York like the originals. But, yeah. The writing and plot were bad. Too bad. Everything else concerned were honestly trying their best. Especially Helmsworth and Thompson.

  • Mib 1 and 2 great . 3 and 4 are shit.

  • Funny thing. i have this video on in the background while playing mobile games, hehe ;D

  • better than MIB III I guess.

  • I liked the movie, usually they get female characters wrong. this was silly like the other films but had a woman lead. it wasn't hardcore but it was balanced for comic book aged boys and girls to have an alien cop fantasy with.

  • I actually Really liked this movie....to me it felt like a men in Black movie

  • I still think that the cartoon was the best mib

  • After this and Ghostbusters, if they do one more terrible reboot with female replacement lead characters and Chris Hemsworth as a moron with a hot body, it will pretty much become a new trope.

  • I was so disappointed in this film

  • No the cast was the problem

  • When I saw this in the theater I walk out after 35 minutes, it was pure garbage

  • That movie killed MIB for me. I really did not like it at all.

  • Yeah, this movie sucked. The humor was just not funny, the plot twists were obvious, and frankly, i couldn't care less about any of the characters. This was bad, but at least it wasn't annoying. I wasn't yelling at the screen that the movie was stupid, like with the Ghostbusters remake. I just sat there like, "Ok. That was a movie." MIB International was just...dull and boring. D+

  • I definitely feel this entire movie suffered from wanting to introduce story elements that they just hadn't earned. Tessa Thompson's character is an automatic badass with high scores but we don't see her put in any work. Chris Hemsworth's character is BEATEN TO DEATH with the dialogue of him not being like how he used to be without ANYTHING from his past showing us he was any different. The big sciency alien technology of the movie just felt like any old science fiction maguffin and the final confrontation had so little in the way of personal stakes that even with the world on the line it was just like.....who cares?

  • Les twins as evil guus was soooo wrong, the effects awful af

  • every SJW movie ... chris hemsworth is in it.. wears glasses and behaves like a turd.. girls love that!

  • This was the worst one

  • Chris has become into a fucking pussy who doesnt wana say a bad thing about a movie with female leads

  • This movie is trash...

  • I have decided not to subscribe, you're at least 50% off the mark on everything. "Chris Hemsworth is a very funny actor"? Really? ......not.

  • I'd like to see them use a more "real world" format similar to mission impossible or James Bond to make these movies less campy. MIB is ironically not supposed to feel like a movie. That's why the first one did so well. There was a wisdom and physicality underneath it all and it felt cutting edge but inconspicuous; now its all just institutionalized like a big fat yawn and no one is surprised by anything. They seem to take the franchise charm for granted. Watching them pull all those BS gadgets off the car and shoot at things was just an eye rolling _"REEEEALLY?"_ Sometimes I think it would have done better as a solo movie. No sequels. If anything the other 3 just make the first one age better.

  • So the problem is not that women can’t be great leads in action movies. The problem is that because of the current culture the female leads have to always be strong, in control of the situation and even smirk and not take anything seriously. The problem with this of course is that it sucks out all dramatic tension and you can’t have a climax without a low point, where all seems lost. Agent M achieved her life’s goal 18 minutes into the movie and is repeatedly shown to be the best agent even at the start. Contrast Will Smith who was a fish our of water for most of the movie and made fun of it even though he was a phenomenal cop. Add captain Marvel and Rey who both face little hardship in their movies. I never really felt that they would fail or were in danger. They were instantly amazing and powerful. Contrast that with Iron Man who was an ass, and was overpowered many times. Luke was a whiny boy until Return and for his hand chopped off and often was defeated.

  • Seriously? that is it? this movie was such a bucket of feces... You do not even point out the god damn feminist agenda at all... High T, wtf is that. Thor is a incompetent moron? That trowing of the small hammer man... And the chick? She know how to reprogram alien technologies and everything after one month? It was a little better than dead man tell no tales and worse than captain marvel.

  • First men in black i only watched half way through

  • I didn't hate it, but I sure as hell didn't enjoy it as much as the first 3. The only parts that made me feel giddy were the easter eggs/Cameos from the previous ones, with the Worms scene, The pug, , and the Portrait of J and K. Other than that.. I watched the movie with a straight face-

  • When i saw the trailer my first thought was avoid this movie like the plague. It felt like a cheap cashgrab. And i still havent seen it and i dont think i will. Mib 1 is the best.

  • Weird thing I was actually looking for a movie to play in the background while I pack to move ... yet is it worth the $5.99 on Amazon?

  • I totally agree! The entire movie was extremely bland!

  • I Redboxed this film and I still felt this movie wasted my time.

  • Thanks I'll wait till I don't pay a dime extra to see it

  • Complete degradation...

  • I like the movie

  • Why did you forget to mention that forced feminism that wasn't necessary in a franchise called "Men In Black"

  • This movie is a step up from part three in my opinion. I love the new characters,the look of the alien's and special effects. It is predictable at times especially who the mole is but overall I really enjoyed this film. B+.

    • Horror fan 4 Life I just saw mib international and I found it very enjoyable. Part 3 felt like a hot mess lol , with the action taking place in the 60s around a boring space shuttle. Also part 3 hardly had aliens. Mib had tons of alien characters and action, the new alien threat would have gave the avengers trouble. I agree it was like a b+ or straight a- 👍

  • Men in Black - "We're looking for the best of the best"... Will Smith already a cop, goes thru the training process. MIB International- "I saw an alien and found you guys". No experience, and an implication of 2 week training. And she's an agent. Why do they continue to make it convenient and easy for women in cinema? It's Rey all over again.

  • The whole plot moved so quickly. Literally: “hey I want in” “No” “You look good in a suit” “Ok you’re in”

  • I really disliked the male protagonist. His character was smug, unprofessional, dumb, over the top and all everything the best special super agent the humanity has SHOULD NOT be. Could not relate to him in any way and found myself rooting for the bad guys in the end. And speaking of that, could they make a more cliche ending to the movie? Coupled with a feminist pushing agenda that was straight on the chin at times, it makes for a terrible movie to watch, much lower than a C

  • it was forced woman empowerment propaganda bs....not mib quality...imo

  • is a mediocre movie!!!! is 5 \10 score !!!!

  • "hhh shit" 🤣

  • God this must have been the laziest pitch meeting ever "Hey how bout a Men in Black reboot with the Thor: Ragnarok guy?"

  • the first half of the movie its kinda boring..but 2nd half it interested me for a suddent..but yeah C- rating was not bad actually..

  • So Thor and valkory are fighting the universe oh god spy kids in 3d
