Men in Black III - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Men in Black III. There are two types of movies -- one, which you look forward to watch, and when they release, you are left disappointed, feeling stupid to have waited for that movie; and second, movies that surpass your expectations! Now, call it good or bad, Men in Black III falls in the third category: a movie that though might not be the greatest flick, but isn’t upsetting either!

Starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and Jemaine Clement, Men in Black III is surely a one-time-watch, if not two. Though the film has a simple plot, it is nevertheless entertaining!

In MIB 3, we see Agent J travelling back to 1969, to save his partner Agent K and rest of the earth from the alien criminal Boris! With the rising petrol prices in India, wonder how much would have it cost had J gone back in time in a car! Just kidding; trying!

Coming back to the film, the MIB series is known for featuring zany aliens; and MIB 3 is no different! Though it might sound a bit strange, when the sticky aliens made an appearance on the big screen, people sitting next to me in the theatre were going all ‘Eew, how yucky’! I, on the other hand, found some of them really cute, as long as one doesn’t have to touch them! Can’t help mentioning the scene where Agent J takes out the heart of an alien; David Blaine has some competition to deal with!

Anyhow, the best thing about Men in Black III was that it was a short movie, with less than two hours of runtime! Had it been any longer, it might have been a test of our patience!

MIB 3 has some really humorous scenes, most of them helmed by Will Smith! Not to mention, the technology and the weapons of 1969 are rather more impressive than the 2012 ones! The monobike which Will Smith and Josh Brolin drive is the coolest ride I’ve ever seen!

Speaking of the performances, though you can’t take the credit away from any of the stars of the film, MIB 3 is predominantly Will Smith’s show! Making a comeback as an actor after almost three years, Smith is certainly the best actor to play Agent J; you cannot think of replacing him! Be it emotional scenes, humorous scenes, action scenes, Smith does not disappoint you!

Even Josh Brolin’s portrayal of the young Agent K is magnificent! He looks so similar to Tommy Lee Jones; it’s hard to believe that it was actually Brolin you were watching on the screen and not Jones, and vice-versa! Jemaine Clement as Boris - The Animal, too, is notable! He looks mighty ugly in the film, something which he is supposed to!

Director Barry Sonnenfeld has done an above-average job! Had the plot been somewhat more interesting, we are sure he would have done something better to the film!

Having said that MIB 3 is a one-time watch, we would advise you to watch the film only in 3D! The film has some eye-popping moments, which would be best experienced with an extra dimension! Also look out for revelations about Agent J’s life, just before the end!

Don’t set your expectations too high and you might just come out of the theatre with a smile on your face! We’ll give it 3 out of 5 stars!

Final verdict: 3 stars out of 5!
