A drag into the plot had proved sufficient enough to hold the nerve ofthe audience. Creepiness in the very beginning of the film strikes thegist of the film, provided for the nutty girls screaming next to meduring the time of the show!Its a Will Smith show! Low and behold one can easily get the humor inhis character and the timing of the jokes and manipulation of hischaracter was good. This third installment is a sort of "Struck withluck when Stuck in work" kind of thing for him indeed. Josh Borlin andTommy Lee Jones, two look-alike,act-alike,speak-alike personalities didadd the essence and fragrance. Compared to the second installment,decade ago, the obscure plot was slightly smudging the transparency ofthe full length film. Provided the action and comedy clubbed togetherone can feel at ease and jot down "it was fun while it lasted".The break in the space-time continuum, the crazy nemesis Boris and hisarm, an agent K, with boyish looks- grab you to a new step from thenormal mode of fabrication of the MIB series. Despite of a few goofs,the film is good enough to be a day's replenishing errand. its a visiontreat. Nevertheless this could be your light- hearted unforgettableweekend

This is a perfect summer movie, wouldn't you say? It's got aliens (lotsof aliens), time travel, futuristic technology, great special effectsand 3D, a fast pace, a wisecracking Will Smith, cool chase scenes andwild shoot-outs.For those of us older than 14, it's a well written, well acted filmwith a few good characters. Michael Stuhlberg plays an interestingcharacter who can see "fifth dimensionally". The villain played byJemaine Clement (Boris the Animal) is hilarious and frightening at thesame time.The movie lacks some of the more annoying, childish aspects of MIB II.MIB has always been a buddy-movie franchise, but in this version thisaspect comes to the foreground. This movie is actually about arelationship, in spite of it all. Josh Brolin is quite good. The movieis very much focused on Will Smith. This movie is perfect for him.Much of the movie is staged in NYC in 1969 so some of the backgroundand humour relate to that. The alert viewer is rewarded with allusionsand references of all kinds, including to MIB I and MIB II. The movieis richly planted with these Easter eggs. (I think the director more orless assumes you've seen the first two movies.)

Men in Black was a great movie, and the second movie was good too.However, this movie was absolutely awesome.J and K return for the third part of the series. J and K have beenpartners for years, but J still feels uneasy about K's stoicism.However, the arrival of a old threat, Boris the Animal. Boris has aplan to take over the world, a plan that involves killing K in thepast. In that way, K can no longer be a threat to Boris in the present.J must go to the past and save his partner, by joining forces with K'syounger self. In this new adventure, J will discover things about Kthat will change the way he sees him forever.Tommy and Will are still as cool as ever. The newcomers are Josh Brolinas K's younger self. He is cool as the younger K, and his performancelets you see that he and Tommy Lee Jones still play the samecharacters. There is also Emma Thompson as O and Alice Eve as O'syounger self. They are charming and welcome additions to the series.While I felt awkward with some of the surreal and crazy humor, the filmis a very satisfying experience. It's definitely worth watching.

Men In Black are back. 15 years after the first (and best) film in theseries Hollywood tries to squeeze some more dollars from the sameidea.Sequels are never easy to do. You need both to ensure continuityand bring back what the audiences love in the original and invent sothat the repetition does not bring exhaustion and disappointment. Bestexamples of success like The Godfather or Star Wars were complexstories spreading over generations, developing memorable characters andbringing to screen new emotions and passions in each one of the newinstallments, even if they not all were as best as the initial films.Well, MIB is no Godfather or Star Wars, neither is Barry Sonnenfeld aScorsese or George Lucas. Men In Black III has more downs than ups.The good news first? Well, it's available (also) on 3D. Don't forget toorder 3D tickets as I did, as many of the screenings are banal 2D. Hint- the tickets on 3D are even more expensive that usual. Two new actorsjoin the team - Josh Brolin doing a fine job as a young version ofTommy Lee Jones' character (yes, good guess, there is some time travelinvolved) and Emma Thompson who is always lovely to see, even when shehas a too thin part as here. The less than good news? Well, there areno surprises, no new jokes to remember, no ideas that make the filmreally different or funnier or scarier than the previous series. Theretro parts are very much the same we have seen in scores of otherfilms since Back to the Future, the bad guy has bad teeth, and thestory has holes as big as the cosmic warps with a touch of melodramathat does not add really anything good.Is it worth paying the ticket to see the film in theaters? Well, maybeyes, if you are in 'just' for entertainment and you are ready to acceptconventions and to put logic to rest for a couple of hours, than youhave chances to enjoy the film. If you are a MIB aficionado you will goand see it anyway, so I can just wish you to have fun!

Rip Torn (Zed), where are you when we need you? This formulaic,copy-cat, clichÃ©d excuse for a sequel disappointed me greatly. Tiredstory...one villain, a few aliens "thrown-in", Will Smith trying hisbest to work with a crummy script, Tommy Lee looking bored with thewhole, tired mess, and Josh Brolin, whose Tommy Lee shtick growstiresome, and the always dependable Emma Thompson totally out of herelement (with a laughable hair-do) and absolutely no match for Zed,make for another piece of Hollywood junk that was simply made to getour price of admission, Oh yes, I almost forgot, gratuitous 3-D, whichcould not save this absurd, hollow movie. The original, rich withcharacters of all kinds, should have been left to age gracefullyinstead of being followed-up twice now with "crapola" films.
bluesman-20 (15 May 2013)
Men In Black III is a enjoyable film.This may be the most emotional one of the three and by far the best onestory wise.The movie begins with the escape of Boris the animal from the lunarprison colony. Boris has only one thing in mind. Killing Agent K fortaking his right arm 40 years ago and spoiling a invasion.Boris is the last of his kind thanks to K spoiling the invasion.There is only one way to make things right again Boris goes back intime to kill Agent K.Meanwhile Agent J is wondering at why K is so distant and cold. 14years together and being friends hasn't shaken that stony Armour so Jbegins to work on K who simply tells him. "Don't ask questions youdon't want to know the answers to."They got their work to keep them warm but J is worried about K.Meanwhile MIB has a new commander in Chief a agent by the name of O hasreplaced Z.O will not give J any information on K's background about why he'somoody and distant. She repeats K's line and it bugs him.K's background is classified and J can't find any answers that way.Then the impossble happens. Agent K disappears it seems he was murdered40 years ago and for some reason only agent J remembers him.Agent O believes J has lost his mind until he convinces her he isn'tcrazy. She then tells J there is one way and that is time travel. Goback in time and save K.There is only one person in Manhattan who has access to a time machineand when J goes back in time and Meets a young Agent K playedremarkably well by Josh Brolin. In fact Brolin's performance is one ofthe film's highlights. We get to see the MIB operate in the late 60's1969 to be precise. And it's a treat. And for J to be teamed up with aYoung Agent K is fantastic. Needless to say K and J are successfulmission accomplished and J finds out about K's deep dark hidden secretand his greatest failure.We find out more about our favourite men in black and that's just fine.This movie has to be the best one yet in the series. I hope they makemore. Or get Josh Brolin his own franchise as Young Agent K. Worthseeing.

There are a number of issues and questions that pop up when you set outto make a sequel or prequel to a franchise that hasn't seen a new entryin a while. Do you reintroduce the characters to those who haven't seenthe previous films or do you dive in and pretend everyone in theaudience understands the narrative? Do you jump the timeline forward afew years or start from where the last film left off? Do you matureyour characters and plot points to reflect the years gone by or do youcontinue to harp on the same strings that worked so well before? Men inBlack 3 wrestles with each of these questions and manages to come outrelatively unscathed on the other end.It has been 14 years since Agent J (Will Smith) joined up with Agent K(Tommy Lee Jones) as a member of the Men in Black, a covert agency thatserves as both an embassy for alien visitors and protection from extra-terrestrial attacks. The dynamic between the two is much the same as italways has been: J still plays the part of the wise-cracking youngupstart while K serves as the crotchety old-timer. Things take a turn,however, when an old enemy of K's, Boris the Animal (Jermaine Clement),escapes from a prison on the moon and jumps back in time to kill K, anevent which in turn leads to the destruction of earth. As the onlyperson who remembers K in the present, J has to jump back to 1969 andre-team with a younger K (Josh Brolin) in order to track down Borisbefore he can accomplish his mission. The early scenes of MIB3, in which the audience is reintroduced to thecharacters, are at best misguided and at worst painful. Thisreintroduction is a necessary endeavor given that the first Men inBlack debuted 15 years ago and everyone likes to pretend the sequelnever happened since it is BRUTALLY bad but the execution in this phaseis poorly written to say the least. There's a distinct disconnectbetween Smith and Jones and whether that was done purposely to show thedistance between the characters or not, it doesn't work. At timesduring the first 15 minutes, it feels as if Barry Sonnenfeld and thenumerous writers who worked on this project couldn't decide whether toset the film years after the original or as more of a direct sequeltaking place shortly after the '97 film. As a result, the two maincharacters treat each other as if they've only been partners for a fewmonths while the narrative is clear concerning the timeframe. I had ahard time getting past this disjointedness and began bracing myself fora disastrous 103 minutes.Thankfully, however, MIB3 finds its groove when J jumps back to 1969and from that point on it's a fun ride. Throwing J into a drasticallydifferent environment brings about some interesting plot points and thefilm gets plenty of laughs based simply on the difference intechnologies and attitudes. The hand-held Neuralizer (the "flashything") that J is used to in the present is actually a giant MRI-typemachine in the early days of the Men in Black and of course Jimmediately gets himself into a spot of trouble pertaining to his racein a not-so liberated time period. The plot isn't always the brightestspot of the film but it does do an admirable job of managing its owntime travel mythology, a task which often proves too difficult for manyfilms that revolve around the concept.But as fun as the storyline and general hijinks of MIB3 are, the realvalue of the movie can be found in the cast. Sonnenfeld lets Will Smithbe Will Smith and that boisterous enthusiasm that has marked his careerplays well within this setting. At the outset, Smith almost seemsrusty, though perhaps that's just my subconscious taking over given howlong it's been since we've seen him on screen. As the film finds itsgroove, so too does Smith and before long he's giving off the old vibesthat have made him such a treat to watch over the last 15 years. Butwith all due respect to Smith, he is thoroughly overshadowed by hissurrounding cast. Brolin is, simply, put, incredibly awesome in thisrole. His impersonation of Tommy Lee Jones is flawless but through afew plot points, he is able to make the character his own in ways thatI didn't expect. He demonstrates great chemistry with Smith that iswonderfully reminiscent of the original film. There are spots withinMIB3 in which the novelty of Brolin being Jones working with Smithtakes precedence over the plot but I found myself more than willing toaccept this dynamic. Beyond Brolin, though, MIB3 is littered withstrong supporting work from Will Arnett (brief but great), Bill Hader(whose appearance marks a strong turning point for the film), and mostimportantly Michael Stuhlbarg who steals every single scene in which heparticipates. Given his work here and his small role in last year'sHugo (one of my ten favorite performances of the year), Stuhlbarg isbecoming one of my very favorite character actors in Hollywood today. It isn't always the smoothest ride and some of the jokes fall flat(though perhaps that's more a sign of my matured sensibilities) but theblend of action, comedy, and surprisingly good sci-fi makes MIB3 asolid, worthwhile film. Add in a thoroughly unexpected touching momentof genuine heart and it's even enough to make on forget Men in Black 2ever happened, a sentiment I think we can all get behind.Please see my reviews at thesoapboxoffice.com
Lloyd Bayer (11 May 2013)
Last seen in "Seven Pounds", Will Smith is back after a hiatus ofquality time with the family; time that he has clearly put to good useconsidering the projects he has lined up over the next few years. Alsoreturning is MIB series (now a franchise) director Barry Sonnenfeld ,who, given the flaws of the sequel, has evidently jump-started the MIBsaga with this third outing. Together, Smith and Sonnenfeld work theirmagic, but the true measure of fresh blood comes from the unlikelyinclusion of a new character, without which MIB 3 would have been on anouter-space trajectory into oblivion.Now a veteran, senior Agent J (Smith) and his partner Agent K (TommyLee Jones) continue to lookout for illegal aliens and extraterrestrialthreats to Earth. Their investigations lead them onto a trail left by'Boris the animal' a dangerous alien K imprisoned 40 years ago. Nowfinding that K no longer exists, J learns that his partner has beenmurdered in the past, so travels back to 1969 to prevent Boris fromkilling K and altering history as we know it.Going into this third outing, I wasn't very hopeful that Smith, norJones, would have any space juice left to revive the interest of WillSmith fans or sci-fi fans. Bringing Josh Brolin into the series changesall that. As the younger K, Brolin adds a much needed tenacity to thisthird part while ensuring his character remains vital to the story. Thereal crowd puller is his unbelievable likeness in personality to thatof Jones, in that you can be mistaken for thinking his dialogue isvoiced by Jones himself. While the first half hour of the movie appearsto be treading the beaten path of the previous film, it all changes forthe better once J time-jumps to the past and is heavily aided withBrolin stepping in as the younger K. This is further tweaked with EtanCohen's screenplay, rife with ample comic moments that seem tailor madefor Smith and Brolin. In comparison, Brolin comes up with some funnylines while Smith is tasked with adding depth and heart â resulting ina clever and overwhelming twist where the premise is the destructivenature of secrets. Other plot aiding roles come from Michael Stuhlbargas a clairvoyant alien called Griffin and Jemaine Clement as Boris Âthe darkest alien villain in the series so far. Emma Thompson as AgentO does not add much to the story, nor is her inclusion to the filmremarkable, except suggesting that O and K may have had a close workingrelationship.Overall, Sonnenfeld vindicates the need for a third part by puttingtogether a good story, juxtaposition-ed with laughs and cliff-hangers.However, considering the strong sci-fi flavor this year, MIB 3 sufficesas pure entertainment for the masses and is unlikely to resurrect acult following; at least not the type stirred by "Back to the Future".As reported, it may be another 3-4 years before Will Smith fans see himspurt out a few wisecracks. In the interim, "Men in Black III" is adecent choice if you want to experience a lighthearted sci-fi moviethat does not require too much concentration.

Seriously? You have three massive acting talents in this movie and youcan't even write a meaningful scene. I understand this is supposed tobe lighthearted summer fare, but when your script doesn't even allowWil Smith a laugh, you are in deep, deep trouble. The interactionbetween the two main characters, whom we know so very well by now, isnot dynamic, playful, or engaging. It is abrasive, annoying, and toxic.It doesn't make you laugh, it makes you cringe. Fourteen years ofworking together to fend off alien menaces and these two don't can'tengage one another. Shabby writing beefed up by expensive effects. Theplot...what plot? We sat through this movie so that we could find outalong with Agent J that hid dad was murdered by an alien during arocket launch? and K hid this from him why? I sat through GreenLantern's entirety and yet I almost walked out of this "film" if I mayuse the term so poorly. Terrible to see someone as talented as TommyLee Jones in another horrible movie. This one makes me eager to see hissequel to the cheerleader chaperone vehicle. Who the hell is hisagent???

"A miracle is something that seems impossible, but happens anyway." Oneof the pearls of wisdom that comes from Griffin, an extraterrestrial"unicorn" that joins the familiar (but unfamiliar) characters of J andK in Men in Black 3.For the first 20 minutes of the film, a miracle was needed to save thisfilm from being a complete embarrassment to the franchise. The dialoguebetween the partners was a caricature of that which entertained us sowell in the first two films, as if they really had been doing the sameshtick for 14 yearsÂlike an old married couple with none of the charm.Something had to change drastically, and fast.Luckily, Boris the Animal is looking to do just that. Escaping from avery specialized prison, he time jumps back to 1969 to gain the upperhand on the junior agent that imprisoned himÂ- Agent K. As soon as hedoes, the grumpier-than-usual K vanishes, the world changes ever soslightly, and J is given his purpose for the next few hours of screentime.This is at least the second movie where Tommy Lee Jones is portrayed inhis youth. In Space Cowboys his voice was laid over a young man thatlooked almost completely nothing like him, but MIB3 enrolls Josh Brolin(No Country for Old Men, W.) to take his place. And the resultÂ isÂ creepy. From the look to the bearing, Brolin absolutely convinces as ayounger K. The voice and accent are so spot-on it sometimes does seemas if Tommy Lee is providing it.He is joined by a cast of impressive characters, supported by even moreimpressive actors. Griffin is a 5-dimensional being, meaning he can seeevery possibility for the future, all the time and is suitably awed. Heis portrayed by Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire, Hugo) as a meekbut engaging character who might remind some of a teddy bear version ofRobin Williams. Out to kill Griffin, K, and whomever else strikes hisfancy is Boris, so convincing in his role as an otherworldly murderousbiker that it seems near impossible that the actor behind him iscomedian Jemaine ClementÂ best known for being half of Flight of theConcords.Missing, sadly, are a few familiar faces. Zed (Rip Torn) is no longerhead of MIB, and Frank the pug makes only a few cameos in pieces ofart. The Worms do get a few words in, as well as a bagpipe solo. All inall, the third installment of the franchise is different from the firsttwo, but it ends up working out best that way. As we see in the firstscenes, the status quo just no longer works. A new format saves thethird movie from going the way most seem to, as bitter disappointments.And a twist at the end, though perhaps not completely sensical, isstill sweet.A worthy weekend watch.Find all of our film and festival coverage, as well as our events andeducation at www.DohaFilmInstitute.com.

This film is a major increase in quality over the first two, not that Idid not think those were also great. There is a continuity to them all,that is capped off here.A Kinky Woman (Nicole Scherzinger) visits a guy named "Boris theAnimal" ("Flight of the Conchords" Jemaine Clement), using the typical"file-in-the- cake" routine, which unfortunately works and he getsloose, blowing a hole in the ceiling of the joint, revealing the Prisonas being on the Moon.This guy is just a Menace, and he's got a little animal living in hishand that can shoot out high-velocity darts. He is actually an advancedguard for a race called "The Boglodites" who have to go from SolarSystem to Solar system, eating them on the way. Next target: EARTH.But Kay (Tommy Lee Jones/Josh Brolin) had arrested this Creepoid backin 1969, and set up a defense grid called "The Arc-Net."Boris gets down to Earth, and immediately resumes his 1969 KillingSpree.At MIB Headquarters, which looks almost exactly the same as it has inthe first 2 films, Agent Zed (Rip Torn) has died, even though Rip Tornhimself plays a different alien guy at "Zed's" funeral. The Image of"Zed" is Kirk Larsen, not Rip Torn. And there is a new "Head" Agent,Agent "O" played by Emma Thompson/Alice Eve.J wants to help out K as usual, but K just does not want J involved...And while waiting in his apartment, K vanishes, and his apartmentchanges... And J suddenly has a headache and wants Chocolate Milk. Thisis because Boris has found Jeffery Price, and jumped back in time to1969, killing K.The Next Day, J gets to work, and nobody else remembers K. He has a"new" partner, Agent "AA" (Will Arnet, who I just can't seem to place).In fact, K's dead, killed by Boris in 1969... And the ArcNet was neverdeployed. And so the Boglodyte's invade, and J has to find the son ofObadiah Price, the only guy who had ever made Time Travel work, beforeMIB made it illegal: Jeffery Price (Michael Chernus). And so, to make aTime "Jump," J has to literally fall from a great height. So he goesback to the day before Boris had gone back.This is where all the fun begins, and Josh Brolin plays the young K aswell as Tommy Lee Jones plays the "Old, Busted Hotness."There is just so much great stuff in this, with Andy Warhol, who is"Agent W" (Bill Hader) and a crazy guy named "Griffin" (MichaelStuhlbarg)-Who has the gift of the ArcNet Shield for K, he is from arace of guys who can see all kinds of ways Time will unfold.Ironically, some of the action in this film, happens at the same Parkwhere the final scenes of the first MIB film happened.What is great about this film, is that it is a full circle of Time'sArrow, that refers all the way back to things that happen in the firstMIB film.The only bad thing I can think of, is that we had to wait ten years forthis film to come out, after the previous MIB film. But even with somuch time passing, director Barry Sonnenfeld was able to re-produce theproduction design of the first two. And although Frank the Pug is nothere, J has some paintings of Frank in his apartment. And no "Jeebs"either (Tony Shalhoub).So Now the MIB story has played out its full cycle, they really did agood job with this one.

Men in Black 3The best part about being a space cop is extorting oral sex from6-tongued Venusian informants.The astral agents in this comedy, however, are more intrigued by theposition's time-travel potential. When Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) disappears, it alters the present. Theonly person who notices this is his long-time partner Agent J (WillSmith).Discovering that an adversary, Boris The Animal (Jemaine Clement), hastravelled to the past to disfigure the future, J leaps into the timestream, emerges days before the moon launchTo navigate his new retro surroundings, J enlists the aid of hispartner's younger self (Josh Brolin).While Smith seems disinterested with his role in this second sequel,Brolin's impersonation of Agent K and the revelations revealed abouthis and J's relationship more than make-up for it.Incidentally, the worst part of being a space cop is performing bodycavity searches on 6-anused Uranians.

A decade passed and here we are again with Agent K & Agent J, stilldressed in black, still saving planet Earth from aliens...But wait, hasit really been a decade? Maybe we were just neuralyzed! Anyway, you probably know this movie involves time travel, something Idon't particularly enjoy much in movies, but I think it's safe to saythis movie pulls it off. Basically Agent J must go back in time andwork with young Agent K to prevent an alien ( that also went back intime) from assassinating young Agent K. Save the past, save the future. First let me tell you this straight away, Tommy Lee Jones is barely inthis movie. All his fans might be a bit disappointed after hearing thisbut don't you worry, for there is Young Agent K! Josh Brolin was justsuperb, he really nailed it as the young and a bit more ALIVE agent K. Overall very entertaining movie. Its action and comedy blend nicelytogether. I love how the fight scenes are fast-paced and suspensefulwith still enough room for a laugh in between. A very worthy sequel tothe MiB series.
Dan Schrier (01 May 2013)
Yes! It has happened. I've seen this movie and my rating is 7 of 10points. If you want to know some details about agent J's past so youshould watch this movie. Tommy lee Jones have appeared in this movie inthe beginning (first 15 minutes) and in the final of movie (last 5minutes). So totally you can see my favorite old school actor is 20minutes. SFXs are 7 of 10. Actors Playing is 7 of 10. Story line andscreenplay are 5 of 10. There are some stupid moments about BorisAnimal in the end of the movie (Fight in Cape of Canaveral with agentsJ and K). I expected more of this movie but please do not worry it isnot boring to spend a time for that.
Prince AJB (01 May 2013)
The first "Men in Black" film arrived roughly fifteen years ago andpleased audiences. Five years later, the second installment of thefranchise arrived and left many moviegoers disappointed. Then, the Menin Black went missing for ten years and now roughly a decade after theprevious installment arrived, "Men in Black 3" arrives in theaters witha time-traveling storyline and we finally get to see our beloved AgentJ and Agent K again.The arrival of "Men in Black 3" last Friday marks an event ofcomebacks. Obviously, the film marks the return of the "Men in Black"franchise which has gone dormant for roughly a decade. But the arrivalof this film also marks the return of Will Smith to the big screen. Hislast major role was in 2008's "Seven Pounds" and he has gone into athree-and-a-half year absence since then. Now he returns to the bigscreen as one of his most popular roles. He is undoubtedly one of thebiggest stars on the planet and seeing him return to the big screen iswelcoming.Ten years separated this installment and "Men in Black 2", where asfifteen years separated "Men in Black 3" and the original one. Due tothe large gap in time between the movies, the concept of Men in Blackmight be new to some people. Basically, it's about an organization thatdeals with paranormal and extraterrestrial activity on Earth. You cansay that these people are the policemen for aliens.So what's this third installment about? Intergalactic extraterrestrialcriminal Boris (Don't call him Boris the Animal or ... you'll see) hasescaped a super-max prison located on the Moon. He arrives on Earth todeal with some unfinished and personal business with Agent K.Apparently back in 1969, Agent K cut off Boris's left arm during aconfrontation. Now Boris wants revenge and so travels back into 1969 tokill the younger K to prevent the 2012 K from existing. Agent J alsotravels back in time to prevent his partner from being slain by theextraterrestrial convict.1969 is different from 2012. Unfortunately, 1969 is a time where thereis still discrimination to black people, much to Agent J's dismay. Eventhough it's 1969 and their Neuralyzer isn't as advanced as the 2012version, they still have some rad technology, especially thesingle-wheeled bikes used by the two Agents. But what steals the showis the appearance of Josh Brolin as the younger Agent K. Due to theplot, Tommy Lee Jones had to give out most of his role to Josh Brolinfor most of the movie."Men in Black 3" also offers some interesting twists. Aside from theyoung Agent K, we also discover some shocking revelations. For example,we now know that famous photographer Andy Warhol is an undercover Manin Black under the name of Agent W. We also learn that there is somechemistry between Agent K and Agent O that dates back to 1969. At theend of the climax, we also discover an important moment about Agent J'searly life."Men in Black 3" is a very entertaining film. It includes solid actionsequences against extraterrestrials of bizarre natures. The actionsequences are very entertaining and keep the film suspenseful. Theclimax of the film delivers and does not disappoint. The aliens werealso very imaginative, creative and very detailed.Not only does "Men in Black 3" excel in the action scenes, but the casthere delivered powerful performances. Will Smith who had beenmissing-in-action for three-and-a-half years proved that his star powerhas not diminished over these years as he delivered a solid,charismatic, and powerful performance. Although he had to relinquishmost of his role to Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones also delivered anexcellent performance as our beloved Agent K. But the guy who elevatedthe film's excellence is Josh Brolin. His performance as the youngAgent K is compelling and spellbinding and all around impressive. Theother supporting cast also did amazing performances.The humor here is also heart-warming. Most of the humor comes from theman himself, Will Smith. When there is a depressing scene, there'salways some humor to help alleviate the sadness."Men in Black 3" as a whole is an impressive and entertaining film. Ithas an interesting premise, action scenes that build up suspense, solidperformances, and outstanding visual effects. "Men in Black 3" ishighly recommended, for both fans of the previous two installments, andthose new to the concept. While this installment may not surpass thefirst one in terms of quality, it's a drastic improvement from thedisappointing second installment.Rating: 8/10Final Verdict: "Men in Black 3" is an excellent addition to the "Men inBlack" franchise that includes an interesting plot line and solidperformances, especially Josh Brolin, that is a major improvement tothe second installment.

It was worth the wait. Men In Black 3 is a worthy entry into thefranchise. Too bad, that Tommy Lee Jones' screen time was so short,though.Luckily, K's younger self, played with 100% conviction by the everdependable Josh Brolin, was a magnificent casting decision. Who knew,that this guy would end up being a hell of a lot more revered than hisfather. As far as I can recall, James Brolin's only claim to fame isBarbra Streisand.There is an abundance of good supporting parts in this one too. The guywho teaches J about time travel, and more importantly, that it's notsuch a great thing to be a black man in the 60s. The following scenedoesn't work as well, though, where Smith is hassled by some not tooenlightened cops. This is a PG-13 movie, so you can't go overboard withthe racist remarks. Luckily Smith saves it by a great one-liner.Speaking of Smith, the problem with the first sequel was that hebasically had to carry the first part of the movie and the charactergot too arrogant at times. Here, he is still kind of arrogant, but heis quickly shown that he still doesn't know dick. That I like.The one scene I absolutely could not stand was set in a restaurant.That fish gave me the creeps and I think that the scene borders oneastern bashing once again in an American movie. We are obviously freetargets in Hollywood these days. Luckily, the scene is short.All in all, there are some stunning sequences, even though you watch itin the normal format. I have always been a little wary about seeingfeatures in 3D. There is some impressive stunt work, mostly done by theactual actors mixed in with some seamless visual effects work. So let'ssay that I hope that Men In Black 4 happens, but I think that I will bedisappointed yet again. The premise is beginning to wear thin.

The pieces are there, and they're moving in the right ways, but thislong-awaited revival just doesn't feel right. That's partially due to acrushing lack of Tommy Lee Jones, who's relegated to a mere cameoappearance, but more thoroughly to a lack of conviction and casual,happenstance tone. It's okay for a comedy to be this thoroughly jokeyand loose, but the formula that worked for this franchise in the pastwas a tight balance of those lighter moments with sharp, dramaticaction sets. MIB3 may go through those motions, but the emotional punchthat its predecessor had delivered so easily is almost completelyabsent here. Though the vast majority of the film is set in the freelove sixties, the atmosphere also remains very modern, like attending athemed costume party where the host didn't get the memo. Excepting afew very easy sight gags and the eyeball-rolling location of the film'sgrand climax, this just doesn't seem to make much effort to grounditself in that era. Josh Brolin works an uncanny Jones impressionduring these scenes, but that act falls strangely flat when the realdeal himself was on-screen only moments before, and in this casethere's really no substitute for the real thing. Quirky and fun, butterribly thin and uncertain... worth watching for the effects andfrequent nods to its genre-mates, but it's really no better than theunderwhelming Men in Black II.

This was a sequel that took 10 years to come about, but hey whosecounting to a much anticipated Sequel that will become a Trilogy? Okayhere we go Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones yet again hit the jack park tothe main street with their great one long liners & their greatchemistry that they have shared together ever since the first film. Ireally liked how they were the only remaining cast members from thefirst too movies, but no one really cared or even noticed that. Itshows that Tommy & Will are the true mental piece icons of thisFranchise. The film takes place in present day and tells us how Kay andJay have basically being working in the MIB services for the past 10years from Men In Black 2 like just your normal every day work. As thefilm goes along it gets more quirky & hilarious with new characters &the new villain involved. Boris The Animal played by Jemaine Clementwas one of the top villains in this franchise,it definitely tops theSerlenna villain but just a little notch down from Edgar The Cockroachfrom the very first film but very close from 3 steps away! Plus JoshBrolin is in no doubt the best possible portrayal of Tommy Lee Jones tobe chosen as the Younger Agent K ever! We see him in 1969 when Jay goesback in time to save Agent K from being killed from Boris The Animal!Brolin really look's and sounds like him, he really took the spotlightgracefully from Will & Tommy in this film as if he was one of theirvery own characters from 1 & 2 or it just seemed that way from hisgreat portrayal! I'm so ready for a Men In Black 4! I Just Hope It Doesn't Take 10 YearsTo Do It For This One!!!

I don't know how they do it but even after the first release of MIB in1997, they made Will Smith look almost as young as he was back then andmade Tommy Lee Jones look just as old as he has always been in thismovie series.To be frank, MIB movie plots haven't ever been 'very great' or 'smart'.But the good thing with MIB has always that they have been hilariouswith their dumb plots and that's what keeps the movie interesting. Youtake out funny aliens and the talking dog from the movie, it doesn'tremain so attractive anymore. Leaving out the countable funny scenesfrom the movie, I felt the movie overall was kind of "mushy"... sniff!They put too much emotions at place where it was not required...Another part that I admired in the prequels were the funny dialogsexchanged between Lee Jones and Will Smith, former being a tight a$$and latter being the funny guy!* Spoiler Alert ahead * In this series as Will Smith goes back in thepast to meet younger Lee Jones, the movie missed to cash out on theirchemistry too.What was good with the movie was the character of all the MIB agents.Will Smith, Lee Jones and Josh Brolin (younger Lee Jones) all haveacted very well in all the movies and all fit perfectly in their role.Although I felt the Alien Griffin was being pushed into scenes to helpour heroes. Either ways, I have no complaints with the acting ofcharacters in the movie.My suggestion: Don't be surprised if you don't end up watching a MIBmovie not-so-hilarious as its prequels when you go to watch MIB 3.
