Consensus: It isn't exactly a persuasive argument for the continuation of the franchise, but Men in Black III is better than its predecessor and manages to exceed expectations.

The script was enough of a mess to stop the shooting for high-priced rewrites, but you know what they say about washing garbage.

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.

"MIB3" is a rocketing, rollicking, visually over-stimulating fun fest from almost the beginning.

I have to admit that I was never much of a fan of this franchise, feeling that it relied too much on special effects and a one trick pony gimmick. However,… More

Josh Brolin knocks it out of the park. Will Smith playing the loveable wise-cracker that made him famous. Too much fun.
