Movie Review: Men In Black 3

Its a wet evening in the city of Port Harcourt on Wednesday. Closing from work, i decided to head to the cinemas to watch Men In Black 3 that was showing in there. The movie was released last weekend and has beaten The Avengers to the 1st position on the box office and has so far grossed $54,592,779 (though this figure is bound to change by the weekend).

MIB3 comes back as a sequel to the almost forgotten MIB2 that was released in 2002 (10 years later 😮 ). Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and written by Etan Cohen and Lowell Cunningham, the movie stars WILL SMITH as Agent J, TOMMY LEE JONES as Agent K, JOSH BROLIN as Young Agent K, JEMAINE CLEMENT as Boris the Animal, EMMA THOMPSON as Agent O, NICOLE SCHERZINGER as Boris’s Girlfriend and ALICE EVE as Young Agent O.

In MIB3 Agent J has to go back in time to stop Agent K from being killed in the past by Boris The Animal who has escaped from his prison on the moon and plans to invade the earth.

So the movie was not bad, better than its predecessor, sweet comedy, few good 1 liners, cool action scenes and a wonderful performance by Josh Brolin.

 

Rating: 6.8/10

Cinema Worthiness: Worth the watch. Go see it.
