Director: Barry Sonnenfeld
Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return in the third and what will hopefully be the final installment in the series. Why was another made after a break of 10yrs. It felt like the same script from the previous editions with the time travel element edited in. The movie had that “been there done that” and “more of the same” feel about it. The enthusiasm and vitality from the lead actors also seemed depleted
The villainous alien “Boris The Animal” escapes from the lunar correctional facility and time jumps back to the 60’s to kill agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). Agent J (Will Smith) then time jumps to the day before agent K was killed so that he can ensure Boris doesn’t kill him. Sound confusing? Time travel storylines always are and the “time travel paradoxes” are irritatingly evident in this film.
Filmed in 3D and utilising the usual 3D gimmicks in the action sequences increased the overall excitement. The aliens were very grotesque and beware of the revolting French kissing scene between two aliens. To be viewed in the premium theatres as the extra loudness and vibrating sensation definitely add to the thrills.
MIB fans of yesteryear may find this movie enjoyable and there may be a market for the younger viewers as the never aging Will Smith still has box office pull. Realistically however, the MIB hype has come and gone and with the passage of time it will be quite interesting to see if there is still an audience yearning for more. JAKE
