Men in Black III

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

They’re back, and the result is OK enough. Josh Brolin impersonating a young Tommy Lee Jones is worth the price of admission. Turns out, an alien serial killer Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) has traveled back in time to save an arm and avoid lunar prison. So Agent J (Will Smith) goes back in time to save the day. While the effort is entertaining enough, Smith and director Barry Sonnenfeld have lost a few steps over the years.

Fading to Black

By Roger Moore, Tribune Media Services

Josh Brolin impersonating the young Tommy Lee Jones is worth the price of admission to Men in Black 3. Dry, drawling, deadpan, he nails the flinty Texan in this sentimental sequel to the sci-fi comedies about secret agents in black suits that save the world from aliens. We have to meet the young Agent K because an alien serial killer who isn’t fond of his nickname, “Boris the Animal” (Jemaine Clement), has traveled back in time to save the arm that Agent K shot off in 1969, and avoid the 40-year prison sentence that followed.
