EASILY better than #2 but not as good as #1...happily in the middle.
Took the kids to see this on the weekend...all thought the same thing: a good "meh"-level movie. Probably good to see on big screen for effects but for story/comedy: a rental.
I LOVED Brolin as the Young K - well done...Will Smith is...well, Will Smith. I enjoyed the main bad guy but didn't find him OVERLY dangerous...
Both my kids said afterwords: "For an alien movie there wasn't much in the way of aliens..." LOL!
And Tommy Lee Jones is starting to REALLLLY show his age and appears to have TRIED to have work done...eech.
I'm getting to old to do this: Pchyeeew!
I couldn't agree more with Mikey's points above. As i watched I thought almost exactly the same things.
- TLJ is REAAAAALLLLYYYY looking old (and i then thought to add him to the dead pool)
- I too thought there could have been more aliens. I did like the bad guy and found him "evil" enough and an overall threat but yeah, it was more about revenge on TLJ then taking over the world, so big deal.
- Hats off to Josh Brolin who obviously had a good time with this role and was bang on as a young "K".
- End result, I enjoyed, much better than #2 (which sucked) but nothing ground breaking here. An easy cash grab. I'm really hoping they are done after this one. Time to put this franchise to bed.
Last note: Much of the movie is about time travel. This is very difficult to do well and many movies have tried and failed. I thought MIB 3 did okay with this topic. Again, so much more they could have done but at least it all made sense.
