Agent K and Agent J from the Men In Black agency are back along with their black suits, dark sunglasses and their neuralyzers to make you forget what you may have seen while they do battle with aliens bent on destroying planet Earth. Director, Barry Sonnenfeld, is back for his third turn with this franchise. He basically sticks to the formula laid out by the previous two MIB films. So what’s the difference with this third installment? Well, for one thing, Tommy Lee Jones hands over his leading role to Josh Brolin, who is playing a younger version of Agent K for most of MIB3. Also, this film is being show in some theaters in the 3D format. I personally saw this in regular 2D, but could see where the 3D effects would add some pop to the scenes where it obviously would have been …

An escapee from the MIB's maximum security lunar prison goes back in time to kill Agent K before he can implement the Earth defence system, so J must return to 1969 to foil his plan and save his partner's life. After the rather sorry, imagination-devoid exercise in cash cow milking that was Men In Black 2 I was not harbouring much hope for yet another sequel, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The retro setting works really well (I loved the way the contemporary aliens were very much in the 50s B-movie style) and the Mad Men-esque style complimented their escapades at Cape Canaveral and Andy Warhol's The Factory really nicely. Josh Brolin is also uncanny in the part of a younger Tommy Lee Jones and his partnership with Will Smith rekindles the chemistry of the first film …

Directed by Barry Sonnenfield
Starring Tommy lee Jones, Will Smith and Josh Brolin
Grade : B-
Barry Sonnenfield knows that if audience expects a crappy entertainer slightly ooish and frightening, then it would be men in black. Men in black are back again with another way too funny and perfunctory story. But this time, they are entertaining to the extent we will be satisfied. Whether it may be the rusty voices from Tommy Lee Jones or fast unstoppable Smith's voice, it makes a way. It is entertaining to the extent we would imagine. Not more than that. Never over done and nicely paced with good depth to characters.
It begins with Boris the animal (Jemaine Clement), escaping from a prison in Moon to rewrite history. He sets a plan to travel back to past, and kill agent K (Tommy …

Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) tries to destroy mankind. Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) talks to Agent J (Will Smith). J then discovers that K was killed in action in the year 1969. Broslin did a good job portraying a young Agent K, which in effect reduces the role of Tommy Lee Jones. Soundtrack was good thanks to Elfman and script solid as always coming from Cohen. Effects were spectacular. Only reservations this reviewer had were the overdone formula (usage of time travel & 1960's era), lack of Frank the Pug and usual comical moments. The aliens and effects were more focused than the humor, which compromises the brilliance of the first, though this was way better than the last. Men in Black III is a somewhat entertaining sci-fi comedy that touches on the subject of compassion, …

Anyone who has seen the previous two movies know that Men in Black is the state's secret police who handle extraterrestrial beings and are responsible for the public to stay ignorant of the existence of extraterrestrial visitors to Earth. Therefore when intergalactic criminal Boris the Animal (last surviving member of the predatory Boglodyte race) escapes from a maximum security prison located on the moon it is up to Agent J going back to the past to save his taciturn partner, Agent K, from being killed by Boris who is intent on killing The Agent who shot off his arm and captured him. With only 24 hours to stop Boris, J arrives a day before Boris kills K. He ends up back in 1969 where he runs into a younger version of K (Josh Brolin) and together they try to stop Boris once and for all …

Well, it’s been ten long years since Agents J and K showed off their intergalactic protection skills in Men In Black 2, and given that the film didn’t exactly win rave reviews, you can’t blame anyone for being a little skeptical about the likelihood of a third installment being memorable. Luckily, I am always willing to give Will Smith the benefit of the doubt, and I’m happy to report that he and the entire cast made it worth my time.
THE GOOD: In order to go forward in this story, we have to go backwards….meaning time travel to the past; the summer of 1969, to be exact, when astronauts were preparing to walk on the moon and the Mets were poised to win the World Series. Another newsworthy event was Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) putting a foul looking alien by the name of …

The original Men in Black was a rather fun look into a secret organization that monitors the vast alien activity on earth (mostly in New York) - it was a new, comedic twist on sci fi. The second entry was a rather wasted affair - deflating all the fun of the original. Ten years later, the third entry comes along, and falls right in the middle of the two.
Men in Black III still retains the humor of the original - Will Smith still has his one-liners and stone-faced Tommy Lee Jones still plays the straight man with stoic grace - and you get a bit of alien humor - a Chinese restaurant that caters to specific clientele and with delicacies to match. And the blink-and-you'll-miss them "celebrity" alien cameos on the big screen board (Lady Gaga, Tim Burton and Justin Bieber made the list and …
