Men in Black 3 2012 9 out of 10

The Men in Black are back in  Men in Black 3 2012   9 out of 10

This time around Agent J  (Will Smith)  has to travel back in time to 1969 after a big bad alien escapes from a maximum security prison on the moon and goes back in time to eliminate his partner K (Tommy Lee Jones).   This of course has big consequences for the Earth as it sets the stage for a full scale alien invasion.  J must go back in time and stop all this from happening.    

Men in Black is a great concept.  It gives you endless possibilities of stories to play around with.  The 2 previous films left me entertained-but wishing for something a little more.  The plots didn't meet the expectations of the amazing world the movies had created.  They left you feeling like there were better more interesting stories to be told in this world.   Men in Black 3 --had probably the most interesting story in the Men in Black world so far.  The time travel aspect worked well and brought Josh Brolin to the series as young K  (which he did a spot on job of).   The peril seemed pumped up a bit from the other movies and the ending was a top notch twist to the franchise. Will Smith once again shines as J.

All in all Men in Black 3 delivered as  a strong entry in the franchise.  It was fun, funny,  and enjoyable action.
