Film Reviews: Men in Black 3 (2012)
Men in Black 3 (2012). Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. The film starts in present day, with the escape of the alien Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) from LunarMax prison, on the moon. Boris is intent on killing Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), as revenge for him shooting off his arm, 33 years previously. Rather than killing K in the future though, Boris travels back to 1969 to also change the future and unleash an attack on the Earth. Agent J (Will Smith) must also travel back to save both the young K (Josh Brolin) and the Earth. Men in Black 3 is a fun film that pushes most of the same buttons as the previous films, without changing the feel to any great degree, other than the time travel plot. Brolin is good as the young K, and it's great to see Jemaine Clement in something, even if it is another villain with a British accent. Fans of the first two films are likely to enjoy. Those who aren't should continue to avoid. 3/5 (Average)
