After this movie had turned out to be a commercial and critical flop, I had pretty much lost all interest in the damned thing but Nick, my step-son was still quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I thought it was actually not so bad at all after all. I mean, sure, it was still a rather pointless sequel/reboot and the fact that I had such low expectations probably helped me appreciate more this flick than it actually deserved but, still, in my opinion, it was actually fairly entertaining. Indeed, while I was watching the damned thing, I remembered how much I had a weak spot for this franchise and they did a decent job to keep the same vibe. However, even if Chris Hemsworth was quite fun and made a solid duo with Tessa Thompson, they never reached the awesome chemistry displayed by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Furthermore, the makers are apparently stuck repeating over an over the same formula which is basically that our planet is facing some Alien threat and the Men In Black have to stop it somehow and, after 4 movies, it has become rather tiresome and repetitive. Anyway, in spite of its flaws and its rather lame reputation, I think it was a decent watch and you might want to check it out, at least, if you like the genre.
