"Go rent this film, stock up on popcorn and have a fun night."
A lot of people were disappointed at this film and I know why. They expected a serious, action-oriented alien film. Well, that's their problem. This film was always meant to be and succeeds in being... a comedy.An effects driven comedy, sure. An effects driven comedy with action, okay. An effects driven comedy with action and Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.. starting to sound a litte iffy. Well it's not. If you're prepared to sit down and enjoy yourself on something that bares no resemblance to reality for a few hours, then this is your movie.
The Men In Black are secret agent types who go about covering up the existence of alien life on Earth. Senor Smith is a street-sassy cop who has been drafted in to the service. The opening shot of the film is something else, in fact all the effects are really good, and though the film would be a flop without them, it's not the same standard effects driven crap that Joe Hollywood serves up with monotonous regularity.Forget the crappy music video, forget the Raybans commercial tie-ins, forget all the crappy hype that the studio felt compelled to spew forth, just go rent this film, stock up on popcorn and have a fun night.
