The men are back in black.men in black 3. this movie is way better then men in black 2 but is it the best movie of 2012 well I can say no.the jokes in this movie was so lame and unfunny.

The time travel plot has a couple of glaring holes and the villain is severly underdeveloped, but the humor hits most of the time. Much better jokes than in the previous MIB. The visual effects are also impressive. It's a brisk film, with an overall fun tone. The added emotional revelation at the end was a nice touch and brings it closer to the level of the first MIB.

Could Men in Black III possibly be good? It has been quite a while since the first one, which believe it or not, was back in 1997. Even the second one (which wasn't very good), was back in 2002. Ten years later, we now have the third, and it was surprisingly good. Will Smith doesn't look a day older, maybe he is an alien himself? The movie is full of the same great comedy as the first, and never gets boring. Watch for the little things, it can add further enjoyment. The story is good, even has things you might not expect. Men in Black III should continue to roll in profits during these summer months and turn out to be a blockbuster success. I think it is worth seeing in the theaters on a Saturday afternoon matinee.

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 …

Early reviews have been kind an it looks like MIB III should bring about $75 million over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. And yes, The Avengers will finally fall to second place. I'll probably end up watching this either Sunday or Monday - look for my review.

I agree that this will most likely be the lowest-grossing MIB film. However, this still looks better than the second film (based on trailers - I withhold final judgement until I've seen the entire movie). The I Am Legend this is going to be a prequel, right? I mean, he kind of (SPOILER)You know, died at the end. He is going to be in at least one original film - After Earth - so hopefully that turns out well.

is will smith desperate for a hit movie&nbsp; or something. he has like 5 sequels coming out , hancock. men in black. i am legend, i robot 2 and bad boys 3. i'm not a fan of men in black. a few have been repeated on tv lately. but i cant seem to watch them longer than 5 minutes. silly movies. This one looks like money grab . i cant see it earning as much as the others.

This is going to be the big film over Memorial Day weekend (though if I'm being truthful, Moonrise Kingdom looks really good - but I'm a Wes Anderson fan). Does Will Smith still command enough summer blockbuster clout to finally dethrone The Avengers? I'm guessing this will open at #1 - somewhere north of $50 million. My biggest question is whether the 10-year gap between films will hurt the bottom line. Still, every time I see Josh Brolin essentially playing Tommy Lee Jones, it bring a smile …

I agree. Will Smith usually puts forth a good effort. I really liked the first, not so much the second. I can imagine how this script came about. Some big Hollywood hot shot was eating lunch with Josh Brolin and casually mentioned to him, "You know, my son told me at breakfast this morning he&nbsp;thinks you look a lot like&nbsp;a young Tommy Lee Jones...let's find a way to make money off that idea."That it is coming out so long after the second doesn't bother me. Maybe it's taken the movie …
