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.
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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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…
Men In Black 2 was considered a bit of a misfire. Barry Sonnenfeld's decision to resurrect the franchise drew criticism as some saw it as a cash-grab. It might well have had the box office tills ringing, but it was a surprisingly good comeback for Smith & Jones.
The first thing that this film does is show you how to introduce your protagonist. "Boris The Animal" is Rick Baker at his most imaginative. From the off he makes a statement of intent that this will have the thrills and special effects magic that the first film had in spades. That scene on Lunar-Max was quite incredible and I still can't get over the fact that that isn't Hugo Weaving under all…
Much like Tommy Lee Jones' face, this film shouldn't work, but it does.
Thoroughly entertaining and good, fluffy fun.
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…
Film 9/30 of Smiler Grogan's Scavenger Hunt
Task #26: A comedy sequel
Well, it's better than II.
I guess I'm a sucker for any movie that involves time travel, but still, Men in Black 3 was a blast, dare I say about as enjoyable as the original Men in Black.
Though Tommy Lee Jones barely has any screen time in this, Josh Brolin does a great impersonation of the character's younger self, while Will Smith does his usual Will Smith wisecracking self. I enjoyed the time travel aspect added into the franchise, and seeing Will Smith's character interact in 1969 made for some hilarious race jokes throughout. Creativity makes a strong return to the franchise, with fun visuals and…
Well, it is what it is. It is definitely better than the second, still it's not great but it also doesn't pretend to be a masterpiece.
It is worth it for Bill Hader's Andy Warhol cameo. It's transcendent.
mistakes were made
Hey look what I found when looking through all my crap to find a different movie. I had meant to watch this a few months ago when I re-watched the first two, but sadly my movies are in a perpetual state of disarray. Anyways, it's too bad because MIB II left a bad taste in my mouth that could have been washed clean by this one.
That's not saying "Men in Black 3" is perfect, but it completely removed all the elements of the second movie in which I hated. We got barely any chain smoking mini alien guys, and only a few reference pictures of Frank the pug. So right away this movie is a huge step up. Then…
This is a good movie, the time travelling is fun, and Josh Brolin is really good as young K.
Rated RAAM for Racism Against Asian Men.
Serviceable sequel for movie that has not relevant since the late 90s.
I think the idea to cast Brolin as a young Jones is almost kind of brilliant. He does a good enough job but unfortunately that's all this one really has going for it.
i'm the 1% of human population who loves the heck out of this movie
Toss of a movie, I couldn't care about any of the characters and the jokes didn't seem to land that well. Some of the special effects weren't that great either.
Having said that, Will Smith was still great, they did find a great younger version for Agent K, and the time travelling bit at the end was interesting. I also really like the idea behind the character who could see the future, but he wasn't always certain which future it would be.
Don't call it a comeback, because it isn't enough to save Will Smith's declining career. (I know: wrong rapper turned actor...) The only reason to watch this horrible mess of a movie is to see Josh Brolin's pitch-perfect channeling of Tommy Lee Jones.
