A respectable afterthought sequel that is paradoxically welcome and unnecessary.
"Men in Black International" is more than just an afterthought; it’s an unfortunate afterthought.

What the film fails to deliver in adrenaline, it makes up for with testosterone-flavored laughter.
Comes complete with a smart script, likeable leads, and a willingness to occasionally tweak a rom-com trope or two.
A glimpse of The Zombie Apocalypse according to hipster director Jim Jarmusch and actor Bill Murray (with all that entails).
Although not “bad” in a conventional sense, it’s a disappointingly mediocre effort that doesn’t have a lot to offer potential viewers over age 10.

Suffers from a massive narrative condensation that not only mutes the film’s emotional impact but creates an erratic tone.
A lackluster, hard-to-swallow police procedural with soap opera-ish subplots and flat characters.
It’s creepy and suspenseful and, although the last act goes on auto-pilot, the film offers a better-than-average experience for those who like their psychopaths unhinged.
