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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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…
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…
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…
Much like Tommy Lee Jones' face, this film shouldn't work, but it does.
Thoroughly entertaining and good, fluffy fun.
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.
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.
Seriously Sony, if you insist on trying to inject life into this flat-lining franchise, surely it would make more sense to cross it over with the 'Ghostbusters' girls?!?

After a brief detour with Batman v Superman, we now return to the main event.
Despite making a decent profit at the box office, Men in Black II was so reviled by the fans (and rightfully so, that movie is god-awful) that it became universally accepted that we would never get to see another installment in this franchise. And apparently even Will Smith himself believed it because he moved on to other and better things while this movie was stuck in development hell for 10 years. Eventually, however, it got out of there and thank God for that, because this was a much-needed and much-deserved apology.
You know, it's funny - usually, threequels completely…
Überraschend gut. Vielleicht weil man nichts erwartet hat
I watched this movie while installing my CPU cooler, foolishly thinking that I would get that done well before the end. Well, I'm glad I had a movie to get me through it.
This is an okay film. It is more like a 'Let's get the whole gang together one last time' kind of movie than anything great. Having said that, there are some interesting parts, and it was nice to wrap everything up at the end. It doesn't take much attention or IQ to get this movie, and in that way it was a good 'watch while doing something else' kind of movie.

My favorite of the three. Briskly paced, funny, good character development, touching ending.
I set a low low bar for this but came out very surprised. Brolen nails Jones. Well done time travel plot too.
This movie was better than I remembered. Will Smith and the rest of the cast do a good job, the story is interesting, and it's pretty funny. All around a fun time at the movies.
A pretty okay film, which is pretty surprising. Tommy Lee Jones seems a little tired of the franchise, which turns out to be okay because he's barely in the film. Smith follows an alien into the past to prevent Jones's assassination, and Josh Brolin plays the young Jones. He's pretty damn good at it too. Who's even better is Jemaine Clement as the alien assassin (his catch phrase is "Let's agree to disagree!"). If you don't like the franchise, you won't like the film, but if it's formula of mildly amusing comedic action and a lot of special effects seems okay to you, this one probably going to seem just as okay.
