Movie Review: Men In Black 3

Don't we all love to travel to the past, correct our mistakes and also see what our close are doing at that point of time? Well, that forms the basis of the latest instalment of Men In Black. In this movie, Agent J (Will Smith) travels to the past to prevent the annihilation of the world by a set of aliens and also rescue his friend/partner Agent K(Tommy Lee Jones) from death. When he reaches the past, he has a lot of things to accomplish in a short time by teaming by with an younger Agent K(Josh Brolin).

Barry Sonnenfeld is also at helm of the movie as the director just like the previous two. I never liked the series for the grotesque aliens and the abundance of slime on-screen. Add lack of an interesting plot to the recipe. This time around, the movie is watchable primarily because the script though predictable takes the viewers from one event to the next without boring them too much. Also, the odd couple, the fast talking Will Smith and nearly expressionless Josh Brolin, keeps the proceedings interesting.

Barring these plus points, there isn't much to write about. So if you are at the movies to kill time and is undecided, you can opt for this one. Otherwise, wait for it on DVD.

  1. Good review Nona. I had a lot of fun with this flick and was a lot better than the second one, that's for sure. It was also great to see Will Smith back in action on the big-screen after 4 years away from it. 4 YEARS!!

    1. Is it 4 years since his last appearance? In fact during lunchtime today, my colleague made a remark of the same kind. "What is Will Smith doing these days? We haven't seen for a long time". I think he has been producing movies like Karate Kid (of course for his son!) and others(not sure what other are though)!

  2. I watched this one last weekend and found it passable. I drank a lot of cola at the beginning and had to rush to relieve myself in the middle of the film and I missed out on some scenes. But at one point I was amazed at how much Jaden looks like his dad. I think Will Smith fans should watch this one. Others can give it as pass.

    1. :) Right about Jaden-Will comparison. There are many who loved the movie. I guess this is the better than the others in the series.

  3. Its better than part 2, Josh Brolins performance is extraordinary,Special effects are the same as in the earlier parts.The end doesnt make much sense after all the earlier sentimental buildup since it shouldnt affect agent K so much, still ok.
    Dont know why this is in 3D there are no effects of that sort, in fact the best 3D scenes were in the trailer of Amazing Spiderman!

    1. I agree with 3D part. There weren't much 3d effects. I really do not know why everyone wants to do 3D. You could also do an IMAX instead of 3D.
