The script was enough of a mess to stop the shooting for high-priced rewrites, but you know what they say about washing garbage.

The movie represents at least a partial return to form--not as inventive as the first, but surely better than the recycled materials that made up the second.

It turns out to be reasonably entertaining, though not enough to make me crave Men in Black 4.
May 25, 2012
The Smith-Jones duo's return as the titularly clad operatives, while not exactly essential, comes with the charms of reprised, well-liked characters and a "didn't-see-that-coming" conclusion that makes up for the first hour's sequelitis.

If, inevitably, it's not as fresh or inventive as the original, it does that thing of riffing on the old favourites in a way that flatters the audience's familiarity pretty well.

If there ever is a "Men in Black IV" -- and at this point, it's hard to imagine one -- let's hope it finds that delicate balance between the yuks and the yucks.
May 24, 2012
This spirited three-quel comes close to the exuberance of the first Men in Black and is a distinct improvement over its limp 2002 follow-up.

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.
May 24, 2012
As in most successful fantasy blockbusters, there's a comfortable balance between technological wizardry and human talent.

"Men in Black 3" has got the MIB mojo back - well, most of it anyway.
May 24, 2012
[Brolin's] performance defies explanation; it's mysteriously marvelous.
May 24, 2012
Its opening sequences are a near marvel of confusion, mayhem and embarrassments for its actors. If it was a person, you'd worry it had dementia.

The unexpected spark between Smith and Brolin makes MiB3 primo summer fun.

Sonnenfeld ... gets just enough juice out of the time-travel idea to give Men in Black 3 a lift.
May 24, 2012
It's like a cross between Looney Tunes and The Naked Lunch - a hallucinogenic popcorn movie you can safely forget the moment it's over. So bring on Men in Black 13!

"Men in Black III" is an efficient Hollywood summer blockbuster product.
May 24, 2012
This sequel is so lifeless and pointless that it moves beyond "unnecessary" into the realm of "unwanted" and "insulting."
May 24, 2012
Brolin is such a perfect match for Jones, and Smith so confidently charismatic, that everything else seems like a distraction.
May 24, 2012
It's that rare threequel that doesn't suck. Great special effects, surprising amount of heart.
