Men in Black 3
They are back... in time.
Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back...in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him - secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
I was in my late teens when the first two Men in Black films came out and I really, really enjoyed them. Taking my age into consideration and the fact that it has been ten years since the last installment I really was not sure what I was in for with Men in Black 3. I must say, I was very pleasantly surprised.
While Tommy Lee Jones wasn't in the film for nearly as much as the younger version of Agent K, the filmmakers could not have picked a better replacement than what they found in Josh Brolin. He was pretty believable as a younger, smidgen happier K.
I think what works so well in these movies is that they…
It's Men in Black, it's fun, it's better than the 2nd, that's all you need to know. I ordered an omelette, I got an omelette.
There are two undoubted stars in the latest Men in Black film - Josh Brolin’s uncanny Tommy Lee Jones impersonation and Rick Baker. As with the previous two films, Baker’s creature effects work is exemplary, particularly his kitschy ‘60s influenced creations. Fittingly, given the film’s time travel conceit, it feels a movie out of time. Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated. However, throwbacks can still be enjoyable if they are entertaining but I’m not sure Men in Black III really is.
It is still bright and breezy but it rarely feels as much fun or as enjoyably imaginative as the first film (I’m still…
When my friend Drew insisted that I join him and his wife to see Men in Black III, I ignored the call and let it roll over to voicemail. Undeterred, Drew was persistent and continued to text me and eventually wore me down - for which I am grateful. Because to my surprise, at the third installment of a franchise I thought was past its prime, at a movie I really didn't want to see, I had the biggest laughs and great summer movie fun.
Director Barry Sonnenfeld (who also directed MIB 1 & 2) surprises us with the most suspenseful, heartfelt and funny story in the series. He also makes great use of the top-level cast which includes Tommy Lee…
Phenomenal fun ensues when Agent J and K suits up for another round against alien scumbags in this surprisingly brilliant third entry in the MIB universe. Despite reports of production problems - such as the script not even being finished when shooting began - this is Barry Sonnenfeld's best movie since the 1997 original. To say I was flabbergasted, is an understatement.
So what makes it such an unexpected success? Well, apart from the outstanding special effects and superb pacing of the plot, the movie is in possession of something that we rarely get in comedies of the kind: a big, enticing heart. It's what ultimately rockets it from run-of-the-mill popcorn fare to an experience beyond the ordinary. You'll know…
I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it was. It has all the charm from the first one that the second one was lacking.
Ok, so aside from the first 10 minutes, this film is fairly good. Much better than the 2nd one.
Ten years after the initial sequel I didn't expect much but "Men in Black 3" ends up being a solid Hollywood comedy. Time-travel paradoxes aside Will Smith easily reprises his role as Agent J, Josh Brolin is a great choice for the young Agent K and the creature designs are once more fantastic.
A late continuation of a franchise that doesn't amount to nothing more but blasphemy, but instead offers some nice, lighthearted fun.
Nach dem schwachen zweiten Teil hab ich mein Interesse an den MIB eigentlich verloren. Zur Einführung des amazon Prime VODs hab ich mich nun aber doch mal, so ziemlich ohne Erwartungen, an den dritten Teil der Reihe gewagt.
MIB 3 hat mich dann doch noch positiv überrascht, wenn auch keine Begeisterung ausgelöst.
Das Thema des Film, dass sich rund um Zeitreisen und Zeitparadoxen dreht ist vielversprechend und interessant, wird dann aber relativ Ideenlos verfeuert. Da hätte man so viel mehr rausholen können, im Prinzip war es dann doch wieder eine null-acht-fünfzig "Men in Black jagt böses Alien das die Welt vernichten will" Handlung.
Einige Szenen sind ganz offensichtlich nur in dem Film um den typischen 3D Pop-Up Effekt zu erzielen…
Way more entertaining than I thought it was going to be. Its a little predictable and sometimes corny but when you add the likes of Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement and Michael Stuhlbarg, your film is only helped. Check it out if your bored.
This film redeems the franchise after a lackluster sequel. If you liked the first one, you should like this, and maybe it'll give you an excuse to forget about the second one. In addition to the MIB premise (aliens walk among us, unknown to the public thanks to the unseen efforts of a covert government organization, the Men in Black), we add a nice time travel yarn with some hippie-era humor thrown in as well. I gotta say, just the sight of James Brolin doing Tommie Lee Jones makes this worth watching. Emma Thompson is a welcome addition, and Jemaine Clement as the bad guy is a standout. As for the story, well, I won't spoil it for you with details, let's just say that it's fun, it builds nicely, and the ending is worthwhile for anyone who has grown fond of the two lead characters.
Agent O-h yeah
*Young version only
Surprisingly good for a third installment of a franchise. Brolin nails the Jones impression. Nice use of paradox that keeps continuity in most of the timeline.
This is really a great Will Smith performance. As secret $cientologist as he's getting, this is a role that he really delivers well. Maybe he just needs to make a MiB movie every 3 or 4 years and stop all the other crap.
This pleasant visit from the '90s would've been more exciting if it didn't give a 250 million blockbuster the import of an episode of a sitcom (leaving half of the essential starring double act out of all but the first and last slates), but it turns out to be more clever to its light-hearted standards than it begins looking like it's going to be, on account of the cast's talented franchise newcomers, a couple of surprisingly great later scenes and the collective agreement by all involved not to take the project too seriously at any point.
