Men in Black
Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe.
Men in Black follows the exploits of agents Kay and Jay, members of a top-secret organization established to monitor and police alien activity on Earth. The two Men in Black find themselves in the middle of the deadly plot by an intergalactic terrorist who has arrived on Earth to assassinate two ambassadors from opposing galaxies. In order to prevent worlds from colliding, the MiB must track down the terrorist and prevent the destruction of Earth. It's just another typical day for the Men in Black.
Remember when Will Smith used to write a 'song' for every movie he was in?
Yeah... So... Uh... That actually happened.
Clever, exciting, imaginative and funny, Men in Black is everything you want a sci-fi comedy to be. Yet, those words fail to encompass my total love for this film. Still the best in the trilogy (in my humble view) it has enough wit and action to keep you entertained for decades. Every time I see it, I just wanna take the first best plane to New York and join their ranks for some good ol' alien-busting. But alas, the MIB is but a fictional organization.
At any rate, it entertains to stellar degrees, and is also one of the movies that launched Will Smith into international fame (or should I say intergalactic). His hilarious interplay with Agent K - played…
You don't exist; you were never even born. Anonymity is your name. Silence your native tongue. You're no longer part of the System. You're above the System. Over it. Beyond it. We're "them." We're "they." We are the Men in Black.
Men in Black is actually a very dark comic book series first published in 1990 about an organization that investigates aliens and paranormal activities on the surface, but actually have sinister motives to manipulate the world. They would also conceal their existence by using a neuralyzer to wipe out people's memories, but when that wasn't an option they would use any means necessary to protect their secrets including eliminating witnesses. Of course this is perfect material for a…
Haven't seen this all the way through in years. Very fun movie, and the scene with 'Frank the Pug' gets me every freakin' time. Still as funny as when I first saw it.
Barry Sonnenfeld has an affinity with black. From "Men In Black" to "The Adams Family" the color plays a big part in both the tone and context of his films with it's darkly comic black humor.
MIB was a sharply written science fiction film based on Lowell Cunningham's subversive comics of the early nineties. With a more comedic take to proceedings, Sonnenfeld brought together two opposites in the guise of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith and made it work to perfection. Jones's wry, almost sarcastic tone was balanced by Smith's more obvious comedic roots for a film with energy and real star quality.
The MIB in question are a clandestine organisation that monitor extraterrestrial visitors on Earth and police…

I had almost forgotten why this film was so amazing. The final shot reminded me.
A absolute classic but I didn't think it was that good. Jumpy moments and original aliens but nothing really special jumped out at me. So long since I have seen it so can't really comment.
A lot of fun, the chemistry between Jones and Smith is extremely entertaining. That scene where J is taking the test and pulls the table over to him, one of my favorite things in the world.
Very deep! Love it.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and Blu-Ray, well for me on a personal level this was a nostalgic look at where it all began. From the very beginning, this film project in one joke tells you all about itself, which is a very interesting yet unusual way to begin a film. But in this case it works so very very well. The atmosphere throughout is darkness yet normality which brings in the viewers to this film quite easily. The storyline is solid, but this film franchise takes this solid storyline and puts a massive injection of science-fiction and with a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of comedy and not forgetting a air-tight storyline with some…
A paramount movie of my childhood
The humor was great! Cool action scenes too. Sad ending, though.
A funny, intelligent science fiction comedy for the whole family
Initially has a child the a scene in the first act creeped me out, that how good Vincent D'Onfrino acting is in this flick before go on to do Law and Order.....
A majestic top secret government agency hire a NYPD detective to save the world from an intergalactic war and it s fun, In a city whereas Aliens hide in human bodies.
Its full of jokes and satire thanks to Smith's quirky humour and their is even some more subtle jokes too. The chemistry is there between Jones and Smith and you can tell just by their interactions on screen with each other onscreen, it wasn't a…
Still really good, no big flaws, great story. Wonderful animations/cgi. It´s a shame though that they let such a cheezy comment about Rodmans disguise end such a good movie.
This classic still holds up today. Will Smith's subtle sarcastic humor in the right places makes the film that bit greater. Definitely worth a watch for any fan of Sci-Fi, comedy, aliens or sarcasm.
