After nearly a decade, the third instalment of the famous “Men In Black” series has hit the screens. Being a sequel to an amazing movie series, it had to face immense expectation from the people and it has met it quite well, with the 3D effect being the icing on the cake. Boris The Animal, an alien which was arrested by MIB when it tried to take over Earth has escaped from prison. It is up to Agent J to save the planet and for this he has to change the past.
Agent J (Will Smith) is amazing, making full use of the really humorous screenplay. He is very good with his one liners. A new and interesting character, Griffin, who has the ability to predict the future lends J and K a helping hand, without which they could not have hoped to save the earth. The film has a special ending with Griffin right at its centre.
“Don't ask questions you don't want to know the answer for…” This was perhaps the best dialogue throughout the film, displaying unexpected significance in the climax.
This film has a repertoire of humorous moments making you just laugh your head off and to cap it, these are evenly spread throughout the film and this is perhaps its greatest advantage.
The movie was similar to the “Back to the Future” series as far as the theme is concerned. And, it slows down in the second half a bit and an extra dose of action with more of state-of-art weaponry would have been better. Also, Frank the talking dog is missing!
Bottomline: To cut a long story short, MIB 3 turned out to be a typical “let's save the Earth” movie!
