Whilst MIB III wraps up the series neatly, there's talk of a fourth already and you can't help but feel the joke is wearing a little thin.

This is the proper sequel to the 1997 original, and not the 2002 laugh-free abomination, Men in Black II.

Josh Brolin and a dose of Back to the Future breathe life and laughter back into the franchise.

While it's a little thrown together, "Men in Black 3" seems focused on recapturing not just the style but also the soul of the original.

It's been ten years since the last underwhelming Men In Black movie and 15 long years since the brilliant original - and no one particularly asked to have it back.

MIB3 is dumb, flashy fun, and if you simply ignore its obvious shortcomings you may in fact find that being back in the saddle with the boys in black remains an enjoyable, frivolous ride.

The hip, knowing backdrop of these films - their winking acknowledgment that what you suspect about aliens is true - is more interesting than the run-of-the-mill plots scampering around in front of it.

Funny, if familiar. Energy and pacing are reasons it's able to skate by. It actually deepens the relationship between J and K, but it's still really a showcase for more of the same offbeat humor and imaginative special effects the first two are known for.

"MIB 3" doesn't have the same see-it-for-the-first-time magic that the original had, and tonally, with Boris, it's a totally different animal. But it's just as strong of a film.

Discerning viewers will find problems with a few of the film's twists and turns, but moment to moment, there's still plenty of fun to be had with the Men in Black.

The effects and direction make this a pleasant diversion, but with a bunch of clunky one-liners and half-baked scenes this is a film that won't be remembered long.

Too often sci-fi epics miss the balance between spectacle and storytelling. While Men in Black 3 isn't always consistent in humour and pace, Sonnenfeld, with a well-considered script from David Koepp, manages to make it work.

This mostly solid sequel is a return to form for the series and just stellar enough to make it a must-see for fans of summer popcorn fare, no matter your age.

"Men in Black 3" is fun and entertaining and shows hope that the series is not as dead as it seemed.

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.

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.
