Imagine a Taika Waititi-less Thor: Ragnarok rewritten by the guys who penned Transformers: The Last Knight. If you're picturing a painfully unfunny alien adventure in desperate need of a comedic punch-up, then you're well prepared for Men in Black: International.

Like stars in a galaxy, there are multiple choices for where a reworking of the Men in Black franchise could prosper, but innocuous is definitely not one of them. Shiny but simplistic, F. Gary Gray’s contemporary reboot of the alien-imbued action-comedy lacks both weirdness and wonder. In a time of over-processed blockbusters, this should be a knowing diversion: flippant, unexpected, gruesome even. You keep waiting for the story to put down a marker and set the characters free, but it never happens. There’s definitely a problem when a cheap Notebook gag gets one of the biggest laughs.

It takes more than two Avengers and the director of Fast & Furious 8 to make the MIB hip again.

It won't exactly make you hate movies, full stop, but Men in Black: International imposes such a generic dullness, it will have you seriously examining your entertainment choices.

Nearly everything here reminds you of something else, often better, cleverer, funnier.

It's time to wave the neuralyser in the face of every executive involved and murmur softly: forget about this franchise.

Men in Black: International is a collection of scenes, some entertaining, some necessary, but mostly neither, in search of a real reason to exist.

It's reason for existing remains deeply questionable, but the chemistry of our extremely watchable leads kept me afloat.

The movie itself, a weightless, unmemorable summer distraction, offers its own curious meta-variation on the joke.

An action comedy with precious little action and bugger all discernible comedy.

Unasked for, unnecessary but unexpectedly enjoyable.
