Movie Review - MIB3

Men In Black 3 (2012) * * * *
Director: Barry Sonnenfeld
Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin

From IMDB:
"An alien criminal travels back in time and kills the young Agent K in 1969, altering the timeline, changing the Agency and placing the Earth in danger. Veteran Agent J (Will Smith) must travel back in time to 1969 to before the murder and work with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save him, the Agency, the Earth and humanity itself."

My Thoughts:
I really don't have a whole lot to say about this movie, except that I truly enjoyed it.  Also, it is possibly the best in the series.

At times both humorous and emotional, MIB3 brings the story of Agents J and K full circle, and shows us why the characters are the way they are today, and how precisely the past affects the present.  Josh Brolin does an amazing job as the young Agent K, and pretty much steals all the scenes he's in.  Emma Thompson makes a brief appearance in the film as another agent, and is brilliant as always.

Overall MIB3 is a fine addition to the series, and is certainly better - by far - than the first two films, in my opinion.

I recommend MIB3 to anyone and everyone who liked the first two films, but I would also recommend watching the first two films, well, you know...first.
