A decade has passed since the last installment of the Men In Black franchise. The third and newest of the lot opened in theaters last Wednesday and Will Smith has gotten older and Tommy Lee Jones is still, well, pretty old.
Agent J and Agent K, everyone’s favorite alien policing duo, is back to solve more interplanetary criminal activity. In Men in Black 3, an old nemesis of Agent K named Boris the Animal has escaped from a lunar maximum-security prison. The unlawful extraterrestrial bends the time-space continuum by traveling back in time and killing Agent K. The disruption causes a rift in history and Agent J must time-jump back to the swinging 60s to save his partner and the planet.
Much of the success of this action comedy franchise can be attributed to the unlikely chemistry of Smith and Jones. Smith is the young, wisecracking deviant, while Jones takes on the stoic and matured authoritative figure.
