The highest prison on the moon, the vicious bergraudo star Boris (played by Jemaine Clement) escaped from prison. He committed an evil crime in 1969 and was eventually sent to prison after young K (Josh Brolin) lopped off an arm. The purpose of his escape this time was to kill K across time and space. Meanwhile, J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) continue to deal with the confusion caused by various aliens, as they have kept silent on the case about Boris, and two close friends have been involved. The partner feels estranged.
On a brand new day, J finds that K has disappeared, and almost no one around knows K. At this time, K was killed by Boris 40 years ago, and the A network he established no longer exists. At this critical moment, the bergraudoans invaded earth in large numbers. In order to protect his homeland, J must travel through time and space and change history again…
In “Men in Black III,” Agent J (Will Smith) must travel back in time to stop an alien criminal from assassinating Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and changing the course of history. J must team up with a younger version of K (Josh Brolin) and navigate the dangers of the 1960s to save his partner and restore the timeline.
The film was released in 2012, a decade after the previous installment in the franchise, and was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. The movie features a star-studded cast, including Emma Thompson, Alice Eve, and Jemaine Clement, who plays the villainous alien Boris the Animal.
While the film was generally well-received, it was not as successful as its predecessors at the box office. Despite this, it was still a commercial success, grossing over $624 million worldwide. The movie was also praised for its strong performances and humor, with many critics noting Brolin’s spot-on impression of Jones’ Agent K.
Overall, “Men in Black III” is a fun and entertaining addition to the franchise, featuring a clever time-travel plot and great performances from its cast.
