    The effects are cheese-whizzy fun, but it's the unexpected spark between Smith and Brolin that makes MiB3 primo summer fun. Way cool. show more

    If you're looking for cinema verite, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a fun, fizzy sequel in a franchise left for dead 10 years ago, have at it. show more

    While this third go-round may not seem necessary amid summer's blockbusters, it's an entertaining jaunt back in time with the likably mismatched duo. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The younger man's personality is all the more startling for the skill and generosity with which Mr. Brolin creates a persuasively vital K while foreshadowing the grump to come. The script explains the change in elaborate detail, but the performance defies explanation; it's mysteriously marvelous. show more

    A solidly entertaining summer movie is always welcome, even if it can't quite claim to be out of this world. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    Finding smart ways to bring novelty to the franchise without forsaking what made the original so much fun (and in fact doubling down on some of those qualities), Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black 3 easily erases the second installment's vague but unpleasant memory and -- though we might hope producers will quit while they're ahead -- paves the way for future installments. show more

    Most wonderful of all is Josh Brolin as the young Agent K. It's so easy to believe that Brolin could turn into Jones, given a couple of decades. show more

    Sonnenfeld's best movies function like elaborate Rube Goldberg contraptions, with visual gags popping out on a precise calibration of gears and springs, and Cohen's script, however derivative, is a stable apparatus. show more

    Although I liked the first "MiB" movie, I wasn't particularly looking forward to this belated sequel. But I had fun. It has an ingenious plot, bizarre monsters, audacious cliff-hanging, and you know what? A closing scene that adds a new and sort of touching dimension to the characters of J and K. show more

    Great Movie **** (yada yada yada) THE ELVIS SALUTE WAS PURE GENIUS - whoever thought of it should get an award.

    It was a fantastic movie and this coming from a 50 year old man. I don\'t get why anyone would say it wasn\'t good, it\'s for kids, or the 3D wasn\'t very good. I watch pretty much any half way decent movie that comes out either at the show or I rent them from the Redbox. I haven\'t seen a whole lot of 3D movies yet but out of the 1\'s I have seen I thought this 1 was the best. It had a good storyline and some nice laughs throughout. The CGI was great also. It\'s probably only at the cheap shows now so go see it in 3D on the big screen instead of waiting for it to be released on DVD. 5 stars, loved it!

    Again this movie has everything to make it great, action adventure comedy etc... This movie is great because its not based off some stoopid comic book character an actual imagination made this film, only nerds would like movies like batman,spiderman, hulk, planet of the apes, nerdsville wake up people lets take back our movies and watch what we love, I hate comic book movies no imagination just a remake of well the funny papers seriously!

    I was totally disappointed. I didn\'t hardly laugh at all and that was what I was going to see the movie to do. The opening sequence was exciting and Mr. Brolin was incredible but the rest of the movie just fell short for me. Maybe next time.

    I thought it was very good. Josh Brolin was spot on. Very interesting story with the time travel concept. It explains some things from the first two flicks and wrapped things up very well. I liked it.

    This movie was just awful. Boris the animal was one of the grossest piece of garbage in any movie.
