Review Of : Men In Black 3

Bookmark and Share


Just watched 'MEN IN BLACK 3' yesterday. 

Director By Barry Sonnenfeld

Starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Emma Thompson, Nicole Scherzinger


Synopsis: 
Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.

Surprisingly, MIB 3 is quite a good movie. :)

Although, MIB 2 wasn't up to expectations as to MIB 1, the third installment is far better.

The story begins as an alien criminal named Boris who escapes from a prison on the Moon; LunarMax. Boris then intents on going back in time to kill Agent K, who in 1969, had shot Boris' left arm and put him in LunarMax. Back on Earth, Agent K knew that when Boris escapes from prison, he will seek revenge. Agent J returns back, to find out that all traces of Agent K's existence was wiped out. J then gets help from Jeffrey Price, who gives him a time-travel device that enables J to time-jump. Agent J then jumps back to 1969, just the day before his partner, Agent K, young Agent K was killed by Boris. 


Agent K was acted by 2 different actors; Tommy Lee Jones & Josh Brolin as the young Agent K.


The acting of Josh Brolin is good, as he managed to bring up Agent K's character as Tommy Lee Jones did. At one glance you might thought they are the same person. :p 

I recommend for you to watch previous MIB movies, before watching this one. To get a better comprehension of The MIB, Agent J & K, etc. You might want to pay close attention to dialogues to understand better. 

Okay, the film's story is simple, but all in all, it was really good. It actually answers a few questions from the previous films. The plot was contains a far amount of humour & action.
Acting, as I said was really good. The characters were well brought up by the actors.
Visual effects was fairly good. Obviously better than the previous ones

Men in Black 3 really sums up the story by answering questions hanging from previous films, (e.g. Agent J's & K's history, etc.) But, it also introduces new characters such as Agent O and Griffin that might have a comeback if there's a fourth installment. 

All in all, Men In Black III was a good movie. Worth the watch.  (:

My Rating?

Plot : 4/5
Storyline : 3/5
Characters**:4/5 
Effects** : 3.75/5
OVERALL : 7.25/10.
