“Men In Black 3″: Funny with right emotional tinge
Director: Barry Sonnenfeld
Cast: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement
Rating:*** ( 3out of 5)
The movie Men in Black III: It was a short movie, with less than two hours of runtime! Had it been any longer, it might have been a test of our patience – As per the reports
The characters are also memorable. Josh Brolin as a fun, younger version of Tommy Lee Jones does well. The villain is ugly and deadly and inspires fear in the viewers.
The reports also suggest that the Smith, whose character must travel back in time, is infectious with his charming motormouth schtick which contrasts Lee Jones’ stoic deadpan act. Brolin as K’s younger version is pretty dead-on in his mannerisms. The presence of Rip Torn as the agency’s boss Agent Z, as well as Frank the Pug, is sorely missed in the film. Flight of the Conchords Clement, as the villain, for all his snarling and his dire need of a dental plan, he’s no Edgar- the disgusting bug creature essayed in all his gross-out glory by Vincent D’Onofrio.
Director Barry Sonnenfeld has done an above-average job! Had the plot been somewhat more interesting, we are sure he would have done something better to the film.
