Succeeds because it doesn't try to rehash anything from the first film (I'm looking at you, MiB2...). Brolin is spot on, and Smith's J is charismatic as usual. We've seen this type of time travel comedy before, but it still manages to entertain. It might be the most emotionally focused of the three, which is admirable.

With Tommy Lee Jones aging a bit too much to aptly continue the role of K and his character being irreplaceable, it's only fitting to find a plot device like time travel to compensate for that. The good news is that it turns out to be a great movie and Brolin fits in perfectly.

I was really pleasantly surprised by this. The main villain isn't all that interesting, the plot is somewhat formulaic, and the direction is for the most part competent and nothing more - but it's funny as hell, the cast are great (Brolin completely rules, and Bill Hader stole the show with his scene), the climax is very good, and, amazingly, it's actually genuinely emotional, with one sucker-punch at the end causing me to almost tear up. At Men in Black 3. I almost tore up at Men in Black 3.

The introduction, with all its MIB-silliness and humor that wasn't even funny when the first film came out in '97, had me worried. But once the plot picks up and the series finally decides to focus properly on the characters, it becomes incredibly engaging. Will Smith does a good Will Smith, Brolin does a very good Tommy Lee Jones, and it even manages to be touching. It's been ages since I saw the first two but this might just be the best MIB. A pleasant surprise. Griffin was a great addition.

The only thing to take away from this film is comfort in the fact that on that terrible day, when we will all be without Tommy Lee Jones, there is another...

The bad-guy is insufferable and there's a serious shortage of laughs. The multiple possible worlds idea has potential and I like the ending, but the film's biggest draw, hands down, is Brolin and his superb impersonation.

Everything here is really on-point, MiB3 brings the MiB atmosphere perfectly, which sometimes can be tricky with almost a decade gone by since the last movie. I actually found it a little funnier than other people seem to be finding it, and it kind of goes without saying that Brolin's Jones is fantastic. The heavy emotional swerve towards the end of the movie was unexpected but not unwelcomed; it added solid substance to a series that some could argue needed a reason for people to care about it.

Watching this film made me forget about the crushing dullness of my life for a few hours, not because I was enthralled, just because it was something on the screen for a bit. I could have just as easily read a book or watched the clouds go by. That is the best I can do for this review, if they aren't going to put any effort into acting it, why should I spend any time reviewing it? It's fine. It's Ok. Average. Mediocre. Yeah. Not bad.

The key to this film's success is that Brolin as a young Agent K is marvelous and has the same entertaining chemistry with Smith's J as TLJ did. The future-past mash-up, meanwhile, adds both extra fun to the dynamic as well as hints of intriguing character work ("What happened to you man?"; see also the final reveal). Stuhlbarg's manic Griffin and Clement's delightfully over-the-top villain (see his hilarious interaction with his past self) are great secondary characters that fill things out.

Pretty dull film full of mostly comedic misfires. Josh Brolin deserves props for his Tommy Lee Jones embodiment and Bill Hader was a welcome addition. Everyone else seemed to try but couldn't get past the script.

As a pulp sci-fi adventure, I actually found it pretty amusing, with fun set pieces, time travel, and a colorful, memorable villain. And Josh Brolin's Tommy Lee Jones is pretty magical. Comedically, though, it has an airless, overly scripted quality to it. I didn't laugh much at all. Still, it's so, so, so, so, so much better than Men In Black II.

Does what it says on the tin. The alternate future seeing guy was supposed to be likeable (I think) but I just found him annoying and his face was a bit creepy. Obviously there are contrived plot elements that can be nitpicked - particularly the Villain's escape from jail at the start but most films have stuff like that. Overall good stuff and got a few laughs out of me.

It's pretty much more of the same here. Will Smith is the same as Agent J and somehow doesn't seemed to have aged since 1997. Tommy Lee Jones' part is reduced, but Josh Brolin does an freakishly good impersonation of him, so it's not a big change. The highlight for me was Jemaine Clement as the villain. He was just awesome. The majority of the jokes fell flat for me though. Anyway, I thought it was fairly enjoyable and a decent sequel.

The MIB series have weirdly uninteresting villains, and this one is probably the worst at it. But I still really liked it. Smith and Jones are as always very likable and Brolin is great. I also loved the Arcanian and his parallel worlds ability.

Yes, the special effects are more refined, and yes, the gags are not that funny anymore -- actually, they weren't funny at all in 2002, when the second movie came out. Smith is silly as usual, the aliens look great, but seem dated -- the graffiti guy didn't show up, that's bad --, and the best lines and scenes come from Tommy Lee as Tommy Lee as Brolin as Brolin/Tommy Lee. Oh, and the joke about president Obama is really cool.

in revisiting the lovely first film i can't help wishing the series had ended there, but this is a surprisingly enjoyable send-off, retaining the warm characterisations, the unabashed hamminess and grotesquity of its villains (jermaine clement makes dr. evil seem naturalistic here) and, aside from a few missteps, the ease with which visual and verbal gags spring forth from its world of deadpan absurdity. now please, no more...

It's hard not to roll your eyes when a seemingly unnecessary sequel (are sequels ever really necessary?) comes out so long after the last. Fortunately, 'Men in Black III' does it right. There is very little focus on tying it to the other films. They assume you know who everyone is and jumps into a new story with the same characters, rather than rehashing the original. Smith's Agent J is just as you remember him and Brolin's Agent K is spot on. 'MIB3' reminded me why I enjoyed the fun original.

Jemaine Clement is so obnoxious. Every time he was on screen I put a revolver in my mouth and dry fired it. Maybe next time. Overall it's EHN, there are no big laughs, it's very painful to sit through the parts that are SUPPOSE to be funny (O speaking in that stupid alien language) and just fall flat. Josh Brolin IS Tommy Lee Jones. It's REALLY obvious which parts were stapled in from a stronger script. That closing was too good for what came before it. Blech Jemaine Clement

It's an entertaining but airless summer flick. It doesn't have the crackle and originality of the first one, but it's infinitely more palatable than the second one. Brolin absolutely deserves all the praise he's been receiving, and watching this in IMAX 3D makes for a fun afternoon, but...yeah. It's well-produced, has some nifty action bits, and certainly looks expensive, but your brain will not be engaged too heavily. You knew that already, though.

I have a love-hate relationship with the Men in Black series. Thankfully, the third entry is a breath of fresh air and wound up exceeding my expectations. The time travel story line actually worked quite well and the writing is nicely done. Brolin's portrayal of Tommy Lee Jones is amazing. I have to give props for the twist in the final minutes of the film. Overall, it's a great sequel that restores faith into the franchise. 3.5 STARS

Creepy monsters and humorous situations abound in this installment of the Men In Black. This time we travel back in time to 1969. There are a few good gags and tons of CGI and special effects. The story is clever and the acting is pretty decent. The overall feeling is very upbeat and good spirited as all the MIB movies are.

Fun, semi-original, and full of action...everything a MIB sequel should be. Brolin is great as a young K, Clement is his usual whacky self as Boris, and Smith is back. The film is cheesy but it's still good (especially considering MIB 2), even with its rocky start, and it has a surprising amount of heart. My only complaint is the bridge scene at the end, which just seems half-baked.

On the plus side, the CGI effects have gotten so much better compared to the last one, that while you still miss the practical effects, it's less heartbreaking and more of a dull ache for what could have been. On the minus side is a lot of things. Boris is set up as this terrible threat and then he's just useless. The way J just wants to get K to talk about his feelings is plain weird. And I never felt like they did anything interesting with the premise of being in the sixties.

After 10 years the third installment of MIB is arrived and the result of watching this movie was satisfying for me , I know the script had some loops but instead I felt the threat behind the characters and I wished the good guys win . the twist at the end and the 5-dimension character were some good points for me .

A pretty fun movie and Josh Brolin is surprising playing a young Tommy Lee Jones. Boris the Animal is an awesome villain and makes me more excited for another MIB than I ever was for this one. No talking pug and not nearly enough TLJ definitely hurts this movie though. Also Rip Torn. Enough was done right to be a very fun movie.

MiB with time travel. It sounds like it could be a disastrous idea, especially after the disappointing second movie, but I thought this one was as enjoyable as the first. Time travel is something that can go so wrong in a movie, but I felt that this one actually did a fairly good job with it. Josh Brolin does great as a young K and he maintains the great chemistry with J. It's maybe not perfect, but I had a lot of fun watching it.

This is not the worst thing you will ever watch it and has some very good (funny) moments but it is still a bad movie. When there is no good joke, there are some terrible jokes and sometimes there is a huge gap between the quality of jokes. At overall, story was not that terrible though. So again, it is very likely to not become your worst 2 hours.

It was a mostly-passable action-comedy. Some of the humor just didn't work for me, and there was some occasional bad-looking CGI, but this is definitely a much better Men in Black movie than MiB 2. Just skip that one and go straight to this one. You can easily enough pretend it never existed.

A bit straight-laced, however it's a big improvement on the awful second installment. Not that that's really saying much! Brolin is clearly the movies highlight, & there is just enough invention & meat in the plot to entertain for one viewing. The fun & original soft sci-fi first movie seems a very long time ago now & although MIB3 never gets anywhere near that sort of popcorn entertainment, it's no shambles. It's a bit of a shame Stuhlbarg's character wasn't explored more.

The movie's barely passable from the start; it's nowhere near as engaging as its first predecessor. Once Michael Stuhlbarg's fantastic character Griffin comes into the picture, things liven up, but then the lead balloon of an ending makes the entire endeavor a waste of time. Just like Terminator 4, it proves that high-numbered sequels that deal with timelines and rewrites DURING shooting aren't going to end well.

Men in Black 3 is not good or bad, but it has moments of inspiration that are genuinely funny. As a fun throwback to cheesy sci-fi romps, and when you add in Josh Brolin's spot-on impersonation of Jones, MIB3 turns into an entertaining and forgettable time waster.

A Herculean leap over the nauseatingly awful Men In Black II, but while a number of the performances are quite fun (Josh Brolin, namely, but also Clement, Hader and Stuhlbarg), the humour falls painfully flat over and over against. That there are five credited writers on the screenplay is telling, as the tone is all over the place, but credit to the film's gut-punch ending for vindicating any early misgivings. It can't recapture the feel of the original, but it's not a bad way to spend 2 hours.

"Men in Black" does time travel. To be fair, the concept does bring a freshness to the franchise, but it would be a stretch to call this a neatly, carefully written movie. Josh Brolin was a very good choice as younger Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith brings his charisma to the table once more and the action is fine but nothing particularly earth-shattering. Also, the twist at the end felt a bit like a desperate attempt at emotion.

Men in Black 3 is more of the same, just like Men in Black II was more of the same. If you like the formula, enjoy the characters, and don't mind seeing them go through another film where they do pretty much the same things one more time -- with superficial changes that are ultimately meaningless -- then you'll enjoy this film. If you were already tired of it in the second film, this one will irritate and bore.

I want to see this again. I'm almost positive it was as great as I thought it was at the time because I went in with incredibly low expectations. Or maybe it was just THAT great. Not just that great, but the best in the series. Other than a lack of Rip Torn, a few plot holes, sloppy CGI and a dip in quality during the last quarter, I have nothing bad to say about it. It was hilarious, it was fun, every actor does a great job (Bill Hader cracked me up) and the climax was shockingly emotional.

Even though agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) have been protecting the Earth from alien scum for many years, J still does not know much about his gruff partner. However, J soon gets an unexpected chance to find out what makes K tick when an alien criminal called Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) escapes, goes back to 1969, and kills K. With the fate of the planet at stake, J goes back in time and teams up with K's younger self (Josh Brolin) to put things right.

I thought the franchise was dead after MiB2, but it turns out the third one was surprisingly good. The time travel plot is kept simple yet interesting, which is better than the overly contrived time loop stories Hollywood seems to be enjoying lately. The weird thing about this movie is that it has none of the weird cheesy charm of the original MiB. It doesn't feel like it fit in the franchise. Yet it still works just fine as the conclusion (hopefully?) of the MiB story.

Entertaining sequel is a major improvement over Part 2, but can't quite shake the feeling that this one-joke premise is way past its use by date. At least it is lively, and deftly directed by Sonnenfeld, with Smith and Jones having fun, and Brolin superb as Jones' earlier incarnation. Underutilised Thompson is also invaluable during her limited screen time, and Clement makes for a great scenery chewing villain.
