The Men in Black are Back!By: Spencer Green
Men in Black 3: Now to be honest, after seeing the second movie I was very weary of seeing the third. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the first movie and I had really high hopes for the second, but the movie never fully delivered on my expectations. However, the third movie forced the series back up and beyond! With a magnificent array of music I was constantly being brought to the edge of my seat. Most of the music was very powerful and increased the intensity of this movie tenfold! As for the graphics I felt that they were lacking in this department. Now, for a 2005 movie the graphics were amazing, however, now days we have improved the technology like never before. As shown by other movies the graphics can be extremely stunning and vibrant however this one felt more like a bunch of people in costumes rather than actually being the creature themselves.
The story line was very well done, and to be honest I hadn’t seen very many movies use the whole time jumping ability. Most movies use some sort of large capsule, or a gate that would take someone through time. So the fact that Will Smith finds himself on top of the tallest building in the city made this a good movie to remember. The overall performance came over very well. The individual acting was very well portrayed and the length of the character development did not disappoint! Every scene came across as a new adventure, and not some re run of the past 2 movies. In the end I would give this movie a 7.8! So, I would recommend this movie, especially if you are one of those Men in Black fans!

It's rare for a prequel to stay true to a series, let alone be as enjoyable as the previous films, but Men In Black 3 definitely stood up to the challenge. There have been quite a few let downs in this department, including the disappointing treatment of "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans", "Hannibal Rising" and "X-men Origins” and the list goes on.
The third instalment of Men in Black starts off with the escape of the intergalactic criminal known as Boris The Animal. He goes back to 1969 to kill agent K for shooting off his arm and imprisoning him. Agent K disappears, and to the rest of the Men in Black headquarters, has been dead for the past 40 years. Agent J is the only one that remembers what really happened. Agent J goes back to 1969 to try and prevent Agent K from being killed and put everything back the way it was.
The amazing thing about this film was that both Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith looked like they hadn't aged a day since Men in Black 2. It still had all the things that made the previous 2 films great, a lot of laughs, high tech gadgets and vehicles they use to hunt down intergalactic criminals and it goes without say that they acting but the three lead characters was brilliant (including the uncanny performance Josh Brolin gave as the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones). Extra credit goes to Jemaine Clement, half of the comedy duo "flight of the concords" for his portrayal of Boris The Animal. If you hadn't checked the credits you wouldn't have even known it was him.
