Review of Men in Black 3   

A good movie

What a nice surprise! At first, I was really wondering what was Will Smith thinking... I mean, he hasn't released anything for the last 3 years and seems to be linked to at least 20 different projects and the one gig he picks up is a sequel for a 10 years old franchise that nobody is really actually expecting. Fortunally, the end result was actually pretty good. At first, you have a slow (and rather boring) introduction where he argues all the time with Tommy Lee Jones and if it was funny the first time, it was rather annoying for the 3rd time around. But fortunately, Jones disappears pretty quickly and then the movie finally started to get interesting. Indeed, first, you have a really spectacular jump from the Empire State Building (I saw it in IMAX 3D and it was pretty awesome). And then, J meets the younger version of K, portrayed by Josh Brolin who just blew me away. Not only he physically really looked like a younger Jones, but he sounded just the same. From now on, I was just sold and enjoyed the whole time travel paradox. Of course, the rest of the movie is just made of preposterous action scenes and of some weird looking aliens, but it was fun and I had a good time. To conclude, even though it is nothing amazing, it remains an enjoyable blockbuster, it displays that Will Smith still rules the box-office and it is definitely worth a look.

I agree nearly all the action scenes were preposterous but there was one that was a pretty nice callback to the first MIB with the noisy cricket. I thought it was nice and subtle. Either that, or I'm just linking two unrelated yet similar scenes that are in many action-comedies.
