“Moderate threat includes a scene in which shape-shifting aliens cause a man’s face to melt.
“There is a comic verbal reference to a woman having a “fetish” for aliens, but she denies this and refuses to “fornicate” with them.”
The BBFC added: “T are uses of ‘dick’, ‘screw’, ‘damn’, ‘pissed’, ‘bloody’, ‘butt’, ‘hell’, ‘bugger’, ‘crap’, ‘jackass’ and ‘ass’.”
There is also a scene in which a character threatens to take his own life, but this is done so a woman will accept him into her service to save him.
Common Sense Media, the American website which gives entertainment and technology recommendations for families, wrote: “The first three movies in the franchise had lots of creepy creatures, sci-fi violence, sexual references, and strong language, so, despite the new cast, you can likely expect the same here.
“But this should be a fun reboot of the beloved series for mature tweens and teens.”
The Motion Picture Association of America gave MiB: International a PG-13 rating.

“Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child.”
