At some point in the future, probably not more than a couple of weeks, you'll realize that you barely remember seeing it.

Mainly rollicks along, keeping a nice balance between grotesque-alien playfulness and badass secret-agent seriousness. The story doesn't have as much fun with the near-alien weirdnesses of 1969 as it could have but the ending comes with a poignant twist.

Despite a rough start, "Men In Black 3" is still decent. It's mostly due to the likes of Josh Brolin and Michael Stuhlbarg's fantastic performances along with Rick Baker's exceptionally creative creature designs, but the ending packs an emotional punch.

It's summer movie smack, and it leaves you hungry only for more of the same.

MIB3 defines how a smart summer tentpole extravaganza should look and act.

Here's a case of a second sequel being better than the first because, well, it had to be...Thankfully, reliance on visual effects has been dialled down this time around for the sake of a decent story.

Smarter than its predecessors, and better-looking, 'Men in Black 3' is an entertaining and (I hope) touching wrap-up to the buddy film science-fiction franchise that began 15 years ago.

Nowhere near as exhilarating as the first, a triumph compared to the second, Men in Black III offers one sci-fi alternative to a moviegoing summer front-loaded with caped avengers in tights. But not much more.

Beneath all the polish -- and Will Smith's considerable charm -- is a mediocre, lazily written story.

Sonnenfeld strikes a rich vein of comedy in production designer Bo Welch's imagining of the MIB in the 1960s.

Not even a melodramatic last minute twist or a reminder of race relations from half a century ago can inspire us to feel much for this parade of cheap humor and intentionally gaudy special effects.

Not nearly as silly as the others, the time warp gimmick works.

The oversized sci-fi fantasy, the super cool weaponry, the ultra cool humour, the adrenaline rush of action (and those iconic sunglasses) that have spawned millions of fans is back.

It's the exploration of the cool, unfathomable yin-yang relationship between Will Smith's J and Tommy Lee Jones' K that elevates this third film of the franchise beyond its quirky and inventive expectations.

Intelligence and wit make MIB 3 a winner.

Though there are a few highlights, surprisingly, megastar Will Smith isn't one of them.

As far as unnecessary sequels are concerned, Men in Black 3 is a serviceable addition to the series.

The actor and character that most humanizes the movie is Michael Stuhlbarg as Griffin, the alien with the gift of seeing potential futures. Griffin is both knowing and insecure. Stuhlbarg gives an affecting performance of warmth and fearful anxiety.

Dials down the creepy-crawly alien effects and ups the human element for this trip down the time tunnel, with a running theme of mortality, fatherhood and uncovering the mysteries of the past.
