“Men in Black III (2012)” movie review.
Posted by MartialHorror May 26, 2012
It's been years since I saw "Men In Black" or its much maligned sequel, so perhaps I'd feel differently if I saw then now. What I liked about the first movie was that it never got lost in spectacle. It was less about the special effects and more about our reactions to them. It would often be scary, dramatic, funny, intense, adventurous and action packed, all at once. It was the full cinematic experience. It's sequel was a hollow shell of that. Honestly, the only thing I remember about "Men in Black 2" was the (certainly impressive) special effects, which were flashy but seemed to lack substance. "Men in Black III" is trapped somewhere in between. It did leave an impression other than "it's pretty", but so much about it seems underdeveloped.
