In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back...in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind. --… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The script was enough of a mess to stop the shooting for high-priced rewrites, but you know what they say about washing garbage."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"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."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"It's not a totally unpleasant way to spend an escapist evening, but considering the talent involved, 'MiB3' should have been more out of this world."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"While it's a little thrown together, "Men in Black 3" seems focused on recapturing not just the style but also the soul of the original."
‑ Tim Grierson, Deadspin
"The hip, knowing backdrop of these films - their winking acknowledgment that what you suspect about aliens is true - is more interesting than the run-of-the-mill plots scampering around in front of it."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"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."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"This is the proper sequel to the 1997 original, and not the 2002 laugh-free abomination, Men in Black II."
‑ Kirk Baird, Toledo Blade
"It's been ten years since the last underwhelming Men In Black movie and 15 long years since the brilliant original - and no one particularly asked to have it back."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Funny, if familiar. Energy and pacing are reasons it's able to skate by. It actually deepens the relationship between J and K, but it's still really a showcase for more of the same offbeat humor and imaginative special effects the first two are known for."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"It turns out to be reasonably entertaining, though not enough to make me crave Men in Black 4."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"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."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Josh Brolin and a dose of Back to the Future breathe life and laughter back into the franchise."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"MIB3 is dumb, flashy fun, and if you simply ignore its obvious shortcomings you may in fact find that being back in the saddle with the boys in black remains an enjoyable, frivolous ride."
‑ Jason Gorber, Twitch
""MIB 3" doesn't have the same see-it-for-the-first-time magic that the original had, and tonally, with Boris, it's a totally different animal. But it's just as strong of a film."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
