It’s been nearly a decade since the last chapter in the Men in Black series, something I find a little shocking. Men in Black III is a return to form in some ways; for example, the effects are much better. Tommy Lee Jones, as Agent K, mentally checked out of this series after the first film, and he has a reduced role in this chapter. Most of the heavy lifting in this installment is handled by that capable, talented egomaniac, Will Smith. His Agent J is still wisecracking with the best of them, and must travel back in time to stop a hideous alien monster (Jemaine Clement) from killing K and erasing him from history. The younger K is played hilariously by a deadpan Josh Brolin, who totally captures the essence of Tommy Lee Jones. Things go a little crazy toward the end, but the film is an overall good time.
