|*sigh* Here we go again...again.|
Anywaaaaays. I digress. So back to the movie. It wasn't horrible but sure as hell wasn't good. The first Men In Black was an awesomely tongue and cheek B-movie that rocked some cool special effects and played like a 90's version of Ghostbusters meets Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The sequel, well I don't really remember the sequel that's how much of an impact it left on me. So this third film really had nothing going for it other than a vehicle to refresh Will Smith's ATM card. I mean, he's a worldwide mega star so his cocky street tough character is hardly believable anymore and actually comes off as kind of annoying. Also, his character "J" is like 40 years old now, and he's STILL partners with Tommy Lee Jones who's pushing 70 in the film. I mean, Christ, they've been partners for 14 years and it's the most unnatural chemistry I've seen between two actors ever.
|Shut Up Will.|
The ONLY saving grace about this film is in fact, Josh Brolin, who does a good job playing the younger version of Tommy Lee's Agent K. That's it. There's a few cool gags with the whole time travel thing but even then, they totally dropped the ball with that also. I know not every time travel film can match Back to The Future but c'mon guys, this weak plot is kind of insulting.
If you want to kill some time and just chill out with some popcorn in a dark room then MiB3 might do the trick. Barely though.
