Men in Black: International isn’t good by any real stretch of the imagination, but it’s not the kind of bad movie that’s worth getting worked up over.
F. Gary Gray
I quite like almost all of the other films in the meatheaded Fast and the Furious franchise, but it pains me to say that for the first time since the fourth entry in the series tried to take things in a new direction, the series eight installment, The Fate of the Furious, left me completely bored throughout much of its running time. It also left me baffled and more than a little upset that such a fun and goofy series about the “importance of family” and “living life a quarter mile at a time” would suddenly forget everything that made these likably silly bits of entertaining in the first place and instead doubles down on the kind of nasty disaster porn and sadism that’s more evocative of a Transformers film than a Fast and the Furious film.
New this week, Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx star in the action-thriller, Law Abiding Citizen; and in the biopic Coco Avant Chanel, Audrey Tautou portrays one of fashion’s most important women.
