Good story, great effects, top actors – Men in Black 3 has all the ingredients needed to produce such a blockbuster movie.
In Men in Black 3, 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. – (C) Sony
The movie is humorous, funny, and let me say Josh Brolin is perfect in portraying the young agent K. It is entertaining, but somehow it also lacks a dear quality that distinguishes great movies and OK-only ones: impression. It doesn’t leave much impression.
I feel like it’s not the type of movie that would be watched twice, but more towards a kind of movie that’s there for a couple of good laughs, and then tossed aside.
Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin are great actors, of course. Josh Brolin’s voice and acting deeply resemble Tommy Lee Jones’, and thus make all the audience believe that they are really one person, with 40 years difference.
Worth the cinema trip? Definitely. Highly recommended to those of you who fancy the first and second MIB, and to all the others who want to be entertained.
