For a movie about magic, that’s one element sorely lacking in this retread.
A worthy conclusion to the Infinity War duology that provides a satisfying end to the First Avengers Era.

This remake is not only worse than the first film, but worse to the point of unwatchability.
Suffers from a massive narrative condensation that not only mutes the film’s emotional impact but creates an erratic tone.
A glimpse of The Zombie Apocalypse according to hipster director Jim Jarmusch and actor Bill Murray (with all that entails).
A lackluster, hard-to-swallow police procedural with soap opera-ish subplots and flat characters.
There’s a point at which the “more of the same” mantra changes to “been there, done that.”
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.
"Men in Black International" is more than just an afterthought; it’s an unfortunate afterthought.

Cast: Jack Quaid, Maya Erskine, Ed Begley Jr.
Comes complete with a smart script, likeable leads, and a willingness to occasionally tweak a rom-com trope or two.
Although the movie will be embraced by the singer’s fans, it has something to offer those with no more than a casual appreciation of the man’s music.

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.
What the film fails to deliver in adrenaline, it makes up for with testosterone-flavored laughter.
A respectable afterthought sequel that is paradoxically welcome and unnecessary.
