Agent J: Knuckles, you know you're not supposed to be north of Canal Street!
Hood: Who's Knuckles?
[a graffiti drawing comes to life in front of the hood]
Knuckles: Relax, punk. They're looking for me, not you!
Agent J: Crazy, right? Two grown men talking to the wall, wall talking back? It's a mess. Hey, don't even worry about it.
Before I get down to it, in my opinion, Josh Brolin's role as the young Agent K was real good, But! My man of the movie (I know it sounds cheesy) was none other than Jemaine Clement as Boris the Animal (you may also know him as 'Nigel' in Rio). And as for Will Smith's role as Agent J was just okay.
Now down to the core of the movie - story; MIB 3 wins with its director but fails woefully with its story; it felt like recycled material from the on-set, you know an alien that's trying to conquer earth - wait a minute isn't that similar to the first two MIB movies? Oh yes it is! The only difference this time seemed to be the whole going to the past twist, which was underutilized (c'mon that can't be the best 1969 had to offer us). This sequel was to reveal more about K's past but after the entirety of the movie, it was J's past that was explained in a way - thus linking the first and third films together (a smart move, considering how awful the second was).
But then, why was MIB 3 fun to watch? it's actors/characters! - well just two and half of them.
|Just don't call him - Boris the Animal|
PS: Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K's eulogy of Zed was ... well you may as well read it.
Agent K: Z was my superior. In all the years I knew him, he never gave away anything personal about himself, nor did he invite me to his house. Thank you.
