Men In Black 3……Men In Black 3…….where do we even wanna start…..This movie really tries and I do mean tries to be like its first movie but sadly comes short on so many levels. Its a good Men in black movie but once again loses its contingency with the other 2 movies and tries to go for another approach which really doesnt work especially from what we watched from the other Men in Black movies. The casting is a VERY good pick with the originals from the other movies Will Smith as Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K. We Have Emma Thompson (I am Legend as Dr. Alice Krippin and three of the Harry Potter movies as Professor Sybil Trelawney) as Agent O, Josh Brolin (Goonies as Brand and No Country for Old Men as Llewelyn Moss) as the Young Agent K. This is a very good cast but this movie just has so many holes in it that the more we talk about it the more disappointed we get.
The movie starts with a woman heading to the prison to visit our antagonist Boris the Animal played by Jemaine Clement(The Flight of the Concords as Jemaine, Albi and David Bowie) who sets a jailbreak and plots revenge on the man who put him in prison meanwhile at MIB headquarters Agent J and K are at a Memorial for a recent passing of a MIB agent (Trust me Craig was so ticked to find out who it was) and who we are shortly introduced after by Agent O to take over the Agents’ position (oh was he ticked). J and K get a call to see the activity going on at a certain restaurant were they find Boris . K gets over protective of J on this Case and suspends him for 4 weeks for trying to figure out what connects K to the case but finds that his access has been denied and is told by Agent O to take some time off and just relax. While J is at home angry with K for suspending him from the case. K calls J to tell him he is ready to tell him everything that links him to the case but J isnt going to have any of it and just hang ups on him. K feeling vulnerable and alone prepares for Boris to bust into the the room but suddenly K is erased from the time line and J feels something is wrong big time and goes to find out that K was Killed in Action during his case that imprisoned Boris for the first time and Boris’ race is ready to attack the planet. Now its up to J to go back in time to save K and stop the invasion from happening? Or will the world be doomed?
Ok to be fair this is better then MIB II but still not enough to surpass the first MIB though it takes things from the old one we come to find there are WAY too many holes in this movie that really makes us think what was the point of the other 2 and things that happened to the other ones well do they mean anything or was just filler to present us with this one. Another thing was Craig didnt really laugh at much of the humor though he knew it was funny but he said he saw them coming or just felt short I think he laughed at only two jokes through the movie. We will even say dont go for it in 3D there isnt really much to go for and just seems meh especially after seeing the Avengers the 3D fell so short in this movie to make you feel disappointed and swindled for your cash so just go see it normaly. All and all we give it a 2/5, trust us we REALLY wanted this to be a good movie but we found so many loops that would just spoil the movie if we started mentioning them off the bat. If your a fan of the MIB movies its good but you will be disappointed of certain things like we where……
