Score: 6/10

Men In Black: International is a cookie cutter action movie that just happens to star two of my favorite actors. Unfortunately, getting their hands on Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth did not change the fact that I felt nothing during this incredibly predictable, mundane action movie.
