They are back… in time.

Basic Premise:
Agent J has to travel back to the 1960’s to stop an escaped alien convict from assassinating Agent K and changing the history of the world.

This was as good as the first two. Josh Brolin did an EXCELLENT job as a younger version of Agent K. He had Tommy Lee Jones down to an exact science. It was hard not to think it was the same person just younger. Total win.

The movie had the same irreverence for Agent J that you saw in the first two. Seeing him get slimed and banged around and zapped and thrown off buildings and everything else is part of what makes these movies so much fun. It was also fun seeing the 1960’s version of MIB headquarters and their gadgets. It shows how much things have changed over the years.

The villain was wonderful. Jemaine Clement made a great bad guy. Until the credits rolled, my hubby and I thought for sure that was a buffed up Tim Curry. I swear. It’s Jemaine Clement’s voice. He sounds just like Tim Curry in this movie. To me, Tim Curry equals villain (and he does it so well). With a voice like that Jemaine Clement might be sitting in that same spot.

Parents a word of warning. Shit and all of its incarnations gets tossed around quite frequently in this movie. If you are sensitive to your kids hearing harsh language, you might want to skip this one for them. There are also aliens getting blown up and killed.

For this movie, if you liked/loved the first two then you’ll enjoy this one as well. I also fond of end theme for this one.
