Men In Black 3

Men In Black 3
Let's get this out of the way right off the bat: Men in Black 3 is not nuanced, high-brow cinema. It's plagued by some of the same things as most big-budget popcorn flicks -- occasionally overdone special effects, the stray plot hole here or there, and a bit of predictability. But as long as you can put that aside, and frankly such things should be expected anyway, you'll find an extremely enjoyable and satisfyingly nostalgic movie.

The Men in Black series seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it affair, and chances are if you enjoyed either the classic first movie or the.. well.. less than classic second movie, you'll enjoy MiB3 as well. Will Smith returns to top comedy form as Agent J, Tommy Lee Jones is as enjoyably grumpy as ever in his role as Agent K, and Josh Brolin delivers a nearly-perfect performance as a younger K. Whether Will Smith is paired up with the world-weary Jones or the brash, charming Brolin, the on-screen dynamic is always enjoyable and often hilarious.

The occasionally wonky plot is buoyed by an interesting -- if slightly predictable -- story arc and strong acting on all parts. Overall the movie much more resembles the first movie than the second, and for those who grew up watching the original there's plenty of nostalgia to go around. By the time the resolution comes around, it makes for a very satisfying and surprisingly touching finish. Don't expect a Best Picture winner, but MiB3 has enough working for it to offer nearly everyone a highly enjoyable experience.
