Men in Black 3 DVD Review

Men in Black 3 DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 28, 2012
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Kidzworld checks out Will Smith’s return to his favorite role, in Men In Black 3!

By: Lynn Barker

Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are still partners in charge of wrangling aliens on Earth but J is getting very tired of K’s surly ‘tude. When K’s old enemy returns to take over the planet, J must go back in time to meet his partner as a young man (Josh Brolin). They must team up to set the timeline right and save Earth from alien invasion!

Story goes: Gnarly alien Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) breaks out of his high security prison on the moon. He’s determined to kill Agent K who shot off his arm and sent him to this hell-on-moon way back in 1969. Boris is determined to wreck the shield around Earth that K put there years ago so that his fellow aliens can invade and destroy.

Agent J goes to work to learn that his has a new partner and nobody knows who Agent K is!  Somehow, the past has been altered by Boris!  New boss Agent O (Emma Thompson) tells J that Agent K died way back in 1969!

To save his partner and the Earth, Agent J time travels back to join his now 29-year-old partner (Josh Brolin) in 1969. Together, they’ll track down Boris, make sure the shield is put in place and avoid K’s early death. In the process, J learns just how important K was to his life when he was only a little boy.

Special Features: We received the DVD to review. Not as many features but here goes:

Partners in Time: The Making of MIB3 – This is a pretty nifty “making-of” featurette. The director (Barry Sonnenfeld) talks about how important the story was to making a third MIB movie after 10 years.  The actors relate how much fun they had making the film and Will Smith mentions how cool all the aliens are. On set, a fan shouts out to Will that he’s “hot”! Will is gracious. We see Will doing many of his own stunts and learn about the cool props, weapons and “rides”. We are shown how the entire rocket launch at the end of the film was done in computer.  Ah, movie magic! Fun.

Gag Reel: It’s a Will Smith movie so you know the outtakes, flubs and goofs are funny! Fun to watch and always too short.

Music Video: You get the fun-to-dance-to video for “Back in Time” by Pitbull. His action is intercut with scenes from the movie.

Wrapping Up: You probably own or have rented the first two Men In Black films, especially if you are a Will Smith fan. This one makes a great sequel. Fun story, cool villain, creative gadgets and effects and, most of all, a really nice, emotional story for the relationship of Agents J and K.  Josh Brolin does an amazing job of playing the young K by somehow channeling actor Tommy Lee Jones. Hilarious and right on!

The extras on the DVD are entertaining. There are many more on the Blu-ray but the DVD is also a good buy.  It would make a great holiday gift or addition to your collection. For the DVD, we’ll go 4 stars.
