Agents J and K are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
Action Adventure Comedy - This is another installment of the popular science fiction action
comedy series, but while Will Smith is back front and center, fans
should note that Tommy Lee Jones has a much reduced presence this time
out, replaced by Josh Brolin as a younger version of his character.
Other familiar stars such as Emma Thompson also have small roles.
There is some language and mild violence, but on the whole parents
will find it acceptable viewing for older pre-teens.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average It's hard to imagine how any movie-goer could legitimately claim to be entertained by this mess. The action is sloppy and limited. The comedy is perfunctory. The lack of energy and craftsmanship is shocking.
Roger EbertFull Review Good Let me say that although I liked the first "MiB" movie, I wasn't particularly looking forward to this belated sequel. But I had fun. It has an ingenious plot, bizarre monsters, audacious cliff-hanging, and you know what? A closing scene that adds a new and sort of touching dimension to the characters of J and K.
USA TodayFull Review Good This spirited three-quel comes close to the exuberance of the first Men in Black and is a distinct improvement over its limp 2002 follow-up. While this third go-round may not seem necessary amid summer's blockbusters, it's an entertaining jaunt back in time with the likably mismatched duo.
