Phil Stringfellow’s review:
I was actually quite dreading this movie, as the second was a real shame compared to the novelty and surprise of the first and really let fans down. Men In Black III, however, restored a little faith in movie sequels, and shows that if you give people what they want, everyone is happy.
Following a rather simple story for a time-travel plot, the film is well-paced, fun, funny and actually quite intriguing at the end, when you least expect it so.
In basic terms, the baddie (Boris the Monster, or "Just Boris") escapes a moon prison, goes to Earth, steals a time travel device and kills K in the past. This has a knock-on effect in the future, meaning J is now without his partner, but still remembers him - but no one else does. Dying 40 years ago does that, you see? Hence a mad scramble for J to get back to 1969 to stop Boris and save K's life and stopping a future alien invasion in 2012. Phew.
In the end though, the story plays second to a great cast, funny moments, some emotional scenes and the fact that the director actually seemed to listen to what the fans wanted.
Now, please. Stop here. No fourth film please.
