There should be a general rule that if a sequel isn't made within 7 years of its predecessor, then it shouldn't be made at all. Such is the case with the tardy Men In Black 3. Attempting to banish thoughts of the middling second part and recapture the magic in the box of the first part, this film is a missed opportunity. The plot is kickstarted by Lunar-based prisoner Boris The Animal, who escapes to Earth and goes back in time to kill Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). Agent J (Will Smith) follows him back to 1969 to prevent this from happening, encountering a younger version of K in the process (a spot-on impersonation by Josh Brolin). Time travel is always a tricky plot device and one scene involving a child towards the end comes across as gooey sentimental. Rick Baker's amusing, mostly practical creature effects are the real reason to watch, as he concocts a weird array of otherwordly beings. The main cast have settled comfortably into their roles like old shoes, but there's an overall air of laziness about the whole film. It's marginally better than part 2 but that's not saying much. It's hard to imagine a part 4 right now. Time for a reboot, methinks.
You really need to get out more buddy! The swearing was a lovely touch! on a proper review and all......wow. I don't think Will Smith will ever be getting upset by one of your reviews somehow. I'd seriously consider some anger management maybe needed??
Lets all go up to Mike Sheridan's house with torches and some pitchforks. The f**king... oh sorry
Really, your 8 year old can read that well!? If that's the worst thing he see's on the internet... Personally, I wouldn't read a site aimed at 8 year olds - just me.
Your review is a disgrace! You should be ashamed of yourself for writing this review for a PG movie. The level of negativity and vulgar language is not what is expected in any review let alone one that could be viewed by childeren.
My 8 year old read the review as he wanted to find out about it before he was going to try and get me to take him to movie. The language is unnecessary and if you feel that there was an overreaction to its use then you are as much at fault. I for one would appreciate it if the author of the review could please remove the language and try and find some other non offensive way of describing their dislike for MIB2.
I liked this movie and I'm very hard to please. Most movies nowadays are utter tripe, but this was genuinely entertaining and funny with a very sweet ending and great acting from Brolin.
I really liked the movie. An easy one to watch, kept me interested throughout. The last 20 seconds of the film was unneccessary though and a tad silly but I would recommend the movie. It might be 10 years since MIB2 but you wouldn't know it to look at Will Smith, that guy just never ages. Doesn't hurt that he is easy on the eye either. Josh Brolin was an excellent younger version of K.
kickedarse....pmsl at u !!! mad thing..!! like i said before i just make things simple we already have a movie critic dont need to read essays apon essays.... but i must say as a come back after all these years it was very good and entertaining and i'd recommend it!!
haha- your 8 year old read the review - REALLY? well as a parent or guardian, it is your RESPONSIBILITY to monitor what your child is looking at, not only on the internet, but also on TV to see if it is appropriate or not for him to view, clearly you have failed as a parent/guardian.
@Movie Watcher85 Jesus, he cursed once, RELAX unless you are counting fart as a curse word - which if you are, you sound like a boring old one. Anyway, I'm not surprised the review for MIB3 has so much negativity, its Men in Black after all, and I'm shocked Will Smith turned down Tarantino's Django Unchained to do this, but I agree with Mike, he has become a business rather than an actor, but I disagree with him when he suggested I AM LEGEND was anyway credible .
Either you're a fan of the series or not, you'll find it very enjoyable. The Men in Black series is still imaginative and fun.
I thought Men in Black was very good really . The time travel part worked very well I thought, and all the new characters were very good, especially the guy who could see into the future . One of the best films I have seen this year .
Em just a heads up for the person worried about the language, I saw the film yesterday evening and F@ck and Ba@tar@ were said in the film so maybe the 8 year old shouldnt see it at all?
