Men in Black III
by Tony Medley
OK for children.
I had no desire
to see this. The first two were ridiculous and less than involving. This
started out he same way. But then, after about a half hour, it segued
into a time travel film with Will Smith going back to 1969 to find a
young Tommy Lee Jones in the body of Josh Brolin and try to save his
life, becoming a film with real people looking to find the bad guy and
gives a fine, deadpan imitation of the deadpan Tommie Lee Jones, the
best performances in the film are by the bad guy, Boris the Animal,
played by Jemaine Clement and the seer, Griffin, played beautifully by
Michael Stuhlbarg. When they are onscreen, the film sparkles.
This has the
same director, Barry Sonenfield, as the first two, but it's not nearly
as silly as the first two. The time-warp angle makes it an intriguing
story and the concentration on one bad buy without all the liquidations
(literally) of hundreds of aliens makes it much easier and interesting
It's a surprise
to me, but this is not a complete waste of time like the other two were.
