After an early childhood encounter with the MIB, Molly (Tessa Thompson) spends the next 20 years seeking employment within the ultra-secretive organisation. She eventually does so, joining MIB’s New York branch under the supervision of Agent O (Emma Thompson). As part of her “probationary period”, she’s assigned to shadow the arrogant, charming Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) in the agency’s London contingency, headed up by High T (Liam Neeson). The duo then embark upon on a whirlwind tour of Europe and North Africa, in a bid to prevent the world from yet another intergalactic threat.
The film contains a panoply of colourful alien characters but is otherwise lacking in terms of plot, narrative, or character development. It might entertain younger viewers, but parents should be aware that there is occasional usage of mild language and some mildly adult scenes, as well as plenty of comic book violence.
