This is a great Sci-Fi Comedy, and still holds up well for a movie nearly two decades old. The ‘buddy connection’ between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith was a real standout, two strong actors who create an chemistry greater than the sum of its parts. The visual effects stand up surprisingly well, and we consider the first Men In Black to be the best of the franchise.
Doug found some of the characterization was not quite in sync with how the dialogue described the characters, and Rem and Jonathan didn’t buy Vincent D’Onofrio’s interpretation of Edgar the Bug. And how could the full size bug fit into that Edgar suit?
Men in Black is a fun movie, and it stands up well for its age. We suggest you watch the first one and skip the sequels.
