Men In Black: International – Story Disappoints Loyal Fans Of The Franchise

Men in Black International

The latest installment of the series – Men in Black: International, starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in the lead. The trailer of the film created quite the buzz amongst fans when it first came out. It received even more eyeballs owing to the fact that it had new faces taking over from the long-standing duo of Jones and Smith.

Men in Black first released in the year 1997 and took every sci-fi loving kid on the ride of their lives. Starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith as Agent K and Agent J respectively. The duo was a smashing hit and add to it the super cool alien-killing weapons, futuristic cars and a memory earing pen -and the makers had an instant hit on their hands. The second installment of the film was released in 2002 and the third in 2012 and with each part, the franchise and its loyal fan base grew stronger.

As most of us know, the franchise is known for taking its time and releasing films a few years apart. So, you get the excitement of fans when MIB: International came out SEVEN years after the last one. However, change isn’t an easy pill to swallow, especially in the cinematic world. Which is one of the reasons why the new duo (that consists of talented actors) has received only a lukewarm response from a lot of fans. While there are viewers and fans who’ve enjoyed watching the film, another chunk along with the critics was left unimpressed with the story and how heavily the movie relies on the nostalgia connected with the franchise of Men in Black.

Here’s what Twitter is abuzz with:

If you’ve been a fan of the series then we’d say, go watch it, if for nothing else than a dose of nostalgia!
