Men in Black 3

J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) don the black suits again for the third instalment of the extra-terrestrial FBI comedy franchise. Meanwhile Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men) makes first appearance alongside Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement.

When K suddenly disappears, J is informed his partner has been dead for over 20 years. This perplexing paradox isn't just a threat to the missing MiB veteran, but also to humankind. Agent J jumps back in time (literally) and partners up with the younger Agent K (Brolin) to set matters straight.

Despite such ubiquitous timidity, one can pluck out a few pleasing distractions here.

In this age of blockbuster bloat, Sonnenfeld's willingness to wrap things up well before the two-hour mark, as well as his eschewal of sledgehammer product placement, count as gestures of considerable mercy.

In a summer hardly starved of comic-book properties, this redundant extension of a series that ran out of gas a decade ago doesn't need a neuralyzer to be forgettable.

You do sense, though, that the people behind MIB3 (mainly veteran producer Walter F. Parkes and script doctor David Koepp) were smart enough to let the audience grow up a bit, enough to get the Andy Warhol jokes and one brilliantly weird creation, a delicate alien who can see every outcome at once.

Easily erases the second installment's vague but unpleasant memory and -- though we might hope producers will quit while they're ahead -- paves the way for future installments.

Despite some good moments, Agents J, O and K are missing an E.

Between Smith, Brolin and Stuhlbarg, the film manages to get past its ramshackle story and sometimes surprisingly-shoddy CGI.

The first Men in Black movie, was very cool at the time of its release and loved every minute. The second one was pretty much a franchise destroyer. Which could be why we are having this third installment so long after the release of the second. The plot revolves around time travel so it can sound convoluted but at it's essence is this. Boris the Animal...

It has been a decade since Agents K (Tommy Lee Jones) and J (Will Smith) have graced the silver screen with their trademark style. So has this hiatus given them a stronger story than their previous adventure? The answer is a resounding yes. K and J return with a new boss in O (Emma Thompson), and a new villain to chase down in Boris The Animal (played by...

I am not the biggest Men in Black fan, but I've got to say I enjoyed Men in Black 3. I thought it was the best one so far. It was predictable but it was fun. If you're a big fan of the Men in Black series, I suggest you watch this, you will not be disappointed.

Enjoyed this movie more than i thaught i would. The end of this movie was great a brilliant twist to the way men in black has been going. However I do hope this is the last of the series as it will get old quick if a fourth movie is made.

I am trying to understand how this is number in the box office. Is it possible that all the MIBs were this bad. I certainly never thought they were master pieces (and I do remember MIB2 being a let down) but I do remember likeing them. Im wondering if I was such a Will Smith fan boy back then that i liked it just because he was in it? It seems to me that...

It was nice to see MIB back in black. The familiar things were still there (but whatever happened to that grumpy dog?). Over the years, I've begun to suffer from vertigo, so seeing Will climb out onto one of the Chrysler Building's gargoyles was a twitchy, leg-crossing experience! The 3D was nicely handled throughout. The story... not so much. There were a...

This film, though started off rather boringly, ended out to be one of my favorite movies of all time, this movie mushes comedy, action, and i guess a little bit of romance into a awesome blockbuster motion picture. I would defiantly say that this flicks review is shockingly harsh, and makes the movie sound bad, (excuse the language but F*ck you Flicks...

I love the Men In Black series and this was another great movie with a great story and i thought the ending was awesome. Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones are my favourite actors and i was blown away by the performance of Josh Brolin playing Young Agent K i thought it was a great idea replacing Rip Torn with Emma Thompson. 5 Stars
