The screenplay is wickedly clever, forcing Smith to journey back in time to the year 1969 in order to undo an incident that has affected Jones ever since. In that year of the NASA moon launch Agent J meets a younger version of Agent K, played by Josh Brolin (doing an expert, and straight-faced imitation of taciturn Texan Jones) and persuades him that they have to work together to capture a feral criminal named Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement). Their guide through the labyrinthine problems of dueling past-and-present realities is a nerdy time-travel savant, nicely played by Michael Stuhlbarg.
I even enjoyed the use of 3-D, which was executed in post-production, and looks great, with some bravura shots that are meant to be enjoyed. It’s that spirit of fun that permeates Men in Black 3 and makes it so much fun.
