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.
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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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…
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…
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…
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.
Much like Tommy Lee Jones' face, this film shouldn't work, but it does.
Thoroughly entertaining and good, fluffy fun.
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.
Aside from the terrible jokes and bad puns it's not a bad movie. Certainly better than the second one. Plus, best Tommy Lee Jones impression ever.
MIB 3 is a giant-ass budgeted remake of the original MIB from 15 years earlier, but who cares. This is the best MIB film.
Will Smith had begun the FULL TAIL-SPIN MODE of career and desperately needed to make something people actually wanted to see or liked. (NOTE: He still hasn't pulled out of that yet.)
I remember hearing production was a cluster fuck because of Smith and his hands-on Scientology ways, but clearly they had a strong enough foundation in Jermaine Clement as the villain, Josh Brolin doing a better Tommy Lee Jones than TLJ himself had done in a while, and Will Smith actively just trying to be a likable but not overpowering presence on-screen--like in the first…
This sequel made me love the "Men in Black" franchise even more.
Why did I think this movie would be good after Men in Black 2 was made? Why.
Es cierto que en comparación a la primera parte, muy satírica y con una mala leche que daba miedo, esta tercera es un tanto insustancial. Pero claro, luego la comparas con la segunda...y es que parece una obra de arte.
Lamentablemente es una de esas películas que se olvidan poco después de verlas a pesar de lo bien que estén, especialmente gracias a su reparto.
Quizás le dé otra oportunidad en el futuro
Loving Josh Brolins impression of Tommy Lee Jones.
This movie was a little... undercooked. The CGI was incredible and I loved the main villain for what he was. But there was quite a bit they missed with this
It was better than two and that's enough for me and it was delightful to see Will Smith play Agent J and be charismatic again. Although the ending twist is stupid and kinda shrinks the MiB universe.
"A fair comeback by Smith with an overused plot"
The idea of time travel was introduced in movies was to fix something that went wrong in the past. The whole back to the future franchise, movies like Source Code and many other sci-fi thriller played along with this idea. To this long list,comes the third movie in the Men In Black series. It was a warm welcome to Will Smith after a long break. In a general note. Men In Black 3 was a serviceable entertainer which was way better than the second part and it earned quite a bit at the box office. Still, the repetitive story line was so predictable and dull that it wasn't up to the…
