A Sony Picture, Written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Directed by F. Gary Gray.

Revamping ‘Men in Black’ without Will Smith was always going to be a tough task, but the casting of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as the new leads gave me hope that Sony could really pull this off. However, that trust was sadly misplaced.

This isn’t the fault of Hemsworth and Thompson who we know are both very talented performers, but the characters they play here force them to be really reserved and therefore not effective.

The plot is incredibly generic and the ‘twist’ is so painfully obvious that I don’t understand how someone didn’t pick up on it.

It’s not necessarily a bad movie, it’s just a nothing movie, which in some ways is worse.

It really wasted a talented lead cast and interesting franchise, and has now likely killed the franchise for good.

Rating = 2.5/5
