Movie Review: Men in Black 3

Here come the men in black!

Starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and others.

This was a fantastic, fun and funny movie. Boris the Animal escapes from the Lunar Max prison and is out to take revenge on Agent K for sending him to jail and blowing off his arm. He's going to go back in time to kill K when they first encounter and it's up to Agent J to go back to the past and save him.

This was a really fantastic movie because we got to see how intricate and close Agent K and J's relationship is to each other. They are such an oddball couple but they work so well together. We find out what happens to Agent K that makes him the surly man in the present. He keeps his emotions away from his work. It was so funny and such a treat to see Josh Brolin play the younger version of Agent K because he had the same idiosyncrasies as Tommy Lee Jones but was much more light hearted. The weight of the events of the future weren't there on his shoulders yet. Instead, he had fun eating pie. Apple with a piece of cheddar.

Jemaine Clement plays Boris the Animal. Upon meeting a couple of hippies at Coney Island, he adopts the most manic and hilarious laughter. He, also, did a great job playing the two versions of himself from the different time periods. Both, equally insane and a pleasure to watch.

This film took an interesting and very cool approach to time travel. You have to time jump off a very high platform, though when you land on your feet, it's not on the ground but the place from which you jumped.

Overall, I had such a good time watching this movie. There's even a T-Rex in it that made me jump out of my seat when I saw it (but then, I frighten easily.) I absolutely loved the back story to K and J's relationship. It had me tearing up, but I'm not gonna tell you why. You have to see the movie for yourself. It's so good. Now playing in theaters. Go see it. It gets two thumbs up from me.
