Men In Black 3

Perhaps my expectation were very low, but overall I enjoyed this movie (up until the end).  It was wry and funny, and Will Smith is the most charming and charismatic man in the world.  Well, I guess it’s a contest between him and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.  But I digress.

I’m actually an outlier on the second movie.  It wasn’t as good as the first film, but I found the love story sweet and compelling, and it had Patrick Warburton (The Tick) as Agent 1, and a hugely appealing you woman that I would cast as Rhiana if anyone ever made a movie of my Edge books.

This new film was fun, and Josh Brolin was just amazing channeling Tommy Lee Jones as a younger man.  Every lowering of an eyelid, scratch at the jaw line, the deadpan voice.  All of was just perfect.

**************************** NOW HERE IS A SPOILER***************************

 

 

 

At the end the thing that has left K rather embittered is the fact that he wasn’t able to save J’s father’s life.  It was just so self-referential that it made my teeth ache, and the story should have been about K and what was important to him.  The levels of coincidence were just too much and so what should have been an emotionally satisfying revelation ended up falling flat because it couldn’t bear the weight of so many coincidences.  The audience ended up with  an “Ah, come on!” reaction.

And while I know a movie audience will give you slack in terms of connective tissue that little kid alone in a car on the beach as the moon launch is taking place just strained credulity.

But it was a pleasant way to pass a hot summer afternoon so I’m not sorry I saw it.
