Watch or Not?:It’s worth a watch whether or not you’re a fan of the MIB series.

Amblin Entertainment and Hemisphere Media Capital’s Men In Black 3 is another instalment of the secret agents saving the world from aliens.

While we’ve seen Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and Agent J (Will Smith) save each others’ backsides and the Earth from aliens in the previous instalments of the MIB films, this involves a more complex time travel. The nefarious villain Boris The Animal escapes from his lunar prison and returns to Earth to get back at Agent K who was responsible for capturing him and shooting off his arm in the first place.

After an encounter with Boris, Agent J and Agent K have an argument about Agent K not being expressive enough. The next day, Agent J wakes up and finds out that Agent K does not exist! Surprised, Agent O (Emma Thompson, who is also the new Chief) tells Agent J that Agent K had died in his encounter with Boris 40 years ago! Agent J’s craving for chocolate milkshake makes Agent O realize that there has been a fracture in the time-space continuum.

With the only way left to save his friend and partner, Agent J takes a “time jump” and travels back to 1969 to save him. Once there, Agent J must not only save Agent K, but also ensure that he plants the ArcNet in the Earth’s orbit which will save the Earth in the future.

Does Agent J manage to save Agent K? Since Boris can also time travel, does he get his hands on the ArcNet before the MIB and lead his invasion of planet Earth? And what secret has Agent K kept from Agent K all these years? The rest of the movie reveals the answers to these questions.Men In Black 3 Movie Stills

Men In Black 3 Review: Script Analysis

Etan Cohen, David Koepp, Jeff Nathanson and Michael Soccio’s screenplay is good. Based on Lowell Cunningham’s original comic, is at least better than MIB 2. They’ve even deftly managed the time travel that makes a big part of the film.

However, the film could have done with some of the alien-Agent combat. It doesn’t have any part that captivates the audience. Agent J’s comebacks are very witty. The part when the show how far Agent J and Agent K go back to is some very smart work in writing.

Men In Black 3 Review: Star Performances

Will Smith is a superb treat as the witty Agent J; his expressions are priceless. Tommy Lee Jones has a very small part as Agent K and though he does well, his make-up looks a bit pasty in the beginning. Josh Brolin is the surprise as the young Agent K. He fits the part perfect with his hunky looks and measured expressions. Jemaine Clement tries too hard as Boris The Animal. Emma Thompson and Michael Stuhlbarg are good as Agent O and Griffin respectively.

Men In Black 3 Review: Direction & Technical Aspects

Director Barry Sonnenfeld has done a good job, but he doesn’t get it right when trying to make the movie sentimental and funny. Danny Elfman’s music is alright. Bill Pope’s cinematography is fine. Wayne Wahrman and Don Zimmerman’s editing is okay. Nothing great about the visual effects.

Men In Black 3 is an enjoyable, average fare.

    MIB-3 Totally worth a watch! It really made my day. Watched it with some friends at Wave Cinema. Excellent seating arena!!! And the movie was such a delight! The action-comedy mix was so right. Josh Brolin definitely provides the tongue-in-cheek humor to the flick!!!

    The best part of the movie was Josh Brolin as a young K, and he is a perfect fit for the role. The banter between him and J is great. But there are a lot of problems, most notably the end showdown which is very anticlimactic. There were also just to many Will Smith moments of him making stupid faces or something like that. There was a great Bill Hader cameo as Andy Warhol and Emma Thompson was pretty good as Agent O., but I was not a huge fan of Jemaine Clement as Boris the Animal (the bad guy). Anyways, if you’re a fan of the other Men in Black movies, I think you’ll like this one. i fully enjoyed at Wave Cinemas it was soo fun as the seating arrangement is soo cool..

    Superb film. Wouldn’t recommendtaking a younger child like I did though (a 4 year old).
    Some parts a little scary for little kids, and quite a lot of swearing, which suprised me considering its rating.
    Would have loved a few more action scenes, as the ones in the film are great! Just not enough to keep a young child interested towards the end, and they would struggle to follow the story..
    Would totally recommend to any older kids, teens and adults though.
