The Men in Black movies have had quite a following since the first one came out in the 90s. It was a satisfying blend of humor, ingenuity, and action. The second movie was good, too. And now there’s a third.
The ten-year gap between the second movie and the third might seem long, but I’m glad it was that long. It seems that the filmmakers didn’t rush into making another one, and therefore took more time to think it through and make a worth-while story. Their efforts paid off.
Men in Black 3 is the best of the three movies, even if it doesn’t have some of the original secondary characters. Any movie with both Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith can’t be all bad, and in MIB 3 Josh Brolin enters the mix. He does an uncanny job of playing a young version of Agent Kay, even getting the speech patterns and facial expressions of Jones down pretty well.
MIB 3 has all the same humor, but even more of a story. It’s well worth watching, especially if you enjoyed the other two movies.
