Men In Black 3

Third helping of sci-fi film franchise does not disappoint.

Like me, I am sure most other fans of the Men In Black series were worried about how the new film would turn out once it had been announced, and whether it would bring to the screen what the other two films did.

Thankfully this film gives the audience everything which they have enjoyed in the previous films and more, Will Smith is back with his witty humour, Tommy Lee Jones is his usual senile old self and there are more alien creatures for the awaiting audience.

The story focuses around the original characters Agent J (Smith) and Agent K (Jones) who are still part of the Men In Black secret organisation, and once again there is an alien villain, Boris The Animal, portrayed this time by Jermaine Clement, who is plotting to take over the earth and it is up to J and K to stop him. However, director, Barry Sonnenfeld, gives us a slight twist to the tale this time, by having J time jump back to 1969. Josh Brolin is then thrust in to the role of a much younger Agent K, a role which he takes on amazingly and shows us a side of K which we have not seen before.

The great thing about a film having scenes set in the past is that it gives them the ability to create jokes about characters in the past and can show how certain aspects of time have happened to make other times in history happen.

When the film begins, the music drags you right in as an electric guitar riff blended in with the classic Men In Black theme jumps in and takes us through the whole opening scene and leaves us ready for the rest of the film.

The film was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld who also directed the first two Men In Black films, and his third instalment will keep you hooked on the storyline right up until the end.
