Men in Black 3
Agents J and K have seen a lot of strange things in the fifteen years J has been working for the MiB but when after a mission K suddenly seems grumpier and more melancholic than ever, J feels something is off. The next day he wakes up with a huge craving for chocolate milk and when he reaches the office he’s suddenly teamed up with Agent AA while nobody seems to remember K. Except for Agent O. She tells J that K in fact died during a mission in 1969 and managed to save the planet while doing so.
It becomes clear that a dangerous alien called Boris The Animal escaped from his prison on the moon, traveled back in time and killed K, effectively giving clear path for his species to invade Earth. J travels back in time to the day before K supposedly gets killed, meets up with the younger version of his partner in an attempt to stop Boris before it’s too late…
Yes, time travel can be confusing and you better not start thinking about all the different things that seem to make no sense what so ever like how people from different eras can actually exist in the same time period. If you can set that behind you, something you should always do when watching a movie about time travel, Men in Black actually exceeds the expectations. MiB 2 was a bit of a letdown, but this third part certainly isn’t and we can all thank Josh Brolin for that. His imitation of Tommy Lee Jones’ grumpy Agent K is fantastic and delivers just what Men in Black needs to stand out. The movie as a whole is fun and entertaining and the special effects are nice, but if it weren’t for Brolin, I doubt MiB3 as much of a success as it is now.
We get stunning image quality with lots of depth and detail, bright colors and deep blacks. The disadvantage of such high level of detail in a movie like this, however, is that some visual effects don’t really appear real, but that’s of course a minor downpoint when taken into context of the picture as a whole. Sound-wise we get a very active track that constantly uses all channels without overwhelming the dialogues. Good stuff.
The extras department delivers over an hour of goodies with a fun-for-once game, bloopers, and a number of promotional and production features that cover just about all aspects of the creation of the movie along with the necessary interviews with cast & crew.
