MIB 3D (PG)



Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld

*****

In preparation for the taking the kids to see this, we watched the first two movies in the series on DVD. These two previous movies remain funny, endearing and innovative in their storyline but the special effects and action are starting to show their age. Could a third movie in the series capture the same offbeat humour and style of the first two but provide the non-stop fast-pace special effects that the kids expect today?
The answer is a resounding yes. After a really nasty alien, Boris the Animal (Jermaine Clement), escapes from a maximum security prison in order to travel back in time to kill Agent K and change the course of history, Agent J (Will Smith) has to travel back in time as well to save his partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones /Josh Brolin) and the universe. Josh Brolin steals the film as a young Agent K and the wry off-beat humour, zany aliens and fast pace delivers a great summer movie.
