| Bigger Imaginations
It's been a decade since the last MIB film was released. We kind of missed the series even though Men In Black 2 wasn't really that good. In this sequel, it's pretty small and unnecessary but it still has the charms and bright imagination. Great Performances and Solid Visuals. It also has the same tone of the original Men In Black films. It's a wonderful action, adventure movie with non-stop enjoyment.

Thankfully, it does not follow the modern blockbuster roots and stay loyal to its own. By the way, this is a comical action film. It may not be a large one but what matters here is the fun characters. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones still got it but who shines here is Josh Brolin. He can perfectly imitate the facial expression and voice of Agent K and it's a lot better when he's around.

The plot sounds like a generic time traveling story, but there are imaginative and wonderful sequences in these. The humor is still clever. There is still a heart. The action is not quite appealing but the time jump scene was spectacular. A lot of people will be rooting for the design of the villain, Boris the Animal. At first glance, you might think it's creepy but you'll realize how awesome he actually looks.

Blockbusters like this are now obsolete. Our usual modern blockbusters are generic and bland cookie-cutters that are easy to be forgotten. This actually stays to its own kind. It's comical, it has life, it cares to the characters no matter how small and absurd the story is. Yes, it's small, but there are so many merits that are worth seeing. Either you're a fan of the series or not, you'll find it very enjoyable. The Men in Black series is still imaginative and fun.

Did You Know?


The 14th biggest grossing film of 2012.


Prison Guard #1: Well, well, Boris the Animal has a visitor. I guess one every 40 years is okay.


When J is charging Boris and keeping track of the spikes that the alien shoots at him so he can dodge them on the second try, Boris first shoots and hits J in the left shoulder. Then the second shot hits J in the right as J says "right" and the third shot hits his left side. Then when he goes back in time a few seconds, the only thing to change is J knows the sequence of which Boris will shoot the spikes. Only it is different. J dodges the first one and says "right" as it passes his right side. Followed by two lefts, and then a forth one on the right. Yet previously, it was left first, then right, and then left again only three. It goes from left right left, to right left left right.

Crazy Credits

The opening title appears in a pan from the Moon to the Earth (something usually done at the end of the MiB films).

Alternate Versions

The Chinese restaurant scene has been censored for the mainland China release. The sequence with J and K in the back room has been edited to remove all shots of Wu, thus eliminating the revelation that Wu is actually an alien. A subsequent moment with J neuralyzing a group of ethnically Asian bystanders has also been deleted.
