Corey Pierce’s review:
Has aged alarmingly well, and I had spent a few years with my memory of this one tainted, possibly by how bad Men in Black II is.
It's hard to believe Chris O'Donnell and Clint Eastwood were the first choices in these roles, as the comic chemistry between Smith and Jones here is just that good, as if the roles were written for them. More impressive though is Vincent D'Onofrio as Edgar/The Bug, and Rick Baker's expressive work bringing that face to life. It really is one of the better comic villains of the past few decades, and you can take it seriously as well, getting in a good number of kills without actually corrupting the fun tone.
Some of the effects are quite dated now, but in a charming way, and often help contribute to the large number of 'movie moments' this has going for it.
I'm cynical about the upcoming Men in Black 3, but this will always be there.
