Fun, tongue in cheek action, comedy sci fi movie about a government agency that makes sure aliens stay underwraps on Earth.

In the summer of 1997 Men in Black more or less blindsided us.  Not many of us knew what it was or what we should expect from it.  It was based off a comic book that (for the most part) very few people had even heard of (and even fewer people actually read).  We knew to expect aliens and Will Smith.  And, of course, our first thought was, "Didn't Will Smith kill aliens LAST summer?"  Yes, Independence Day happened.  Men in Black, on the other hand, just …

***1/2 out of ****    As humans, we assume that we are alone on this earth, but we are wrong. Extraterrestrials hop from planet to planet, and eventually they will land on ours. More than likely, they'll choose to stay. Some are peaceful and some are hostile. For the latter group, we have a top secret organization known as the Men in Black; an agency which is practically untouchable that consists of men in black suits. They work behind the scenes while the human race continues …

If Men in Black had been done differently, if the directing had been different, if the characters were played by different people, it could have been an average summer movie. But it isn't. Men in Black has all the visual thrill and dazzling action of a summer sci-fi action movie, but it succeeds due to the fact that it's just so cool. That's the perfect word to describe this movie, cool. The characters are cool, the premise is cool, the special effects are cool, I mean who in their right …

I saw this movie when i was younger and it was always one of my favorites, though i never realized it was based on a comic book...until now. Will Smith was really great in this movie, as he is in most of his movies. The special effects are  really good especially if you look at how long ago it was made and how much we have advanced in the computer technology department since then. The story was really well written, easy to follow, and all around entertaining as far as alien …

Totally mad. Totally fun. Totally weird. And it works its way through the alphabet as well.

Entertaining with a good cast. Corny, but in an endearing way that makes the movie more appealing than other alien movies like it.

One of my childhood favorites, Jones and Smith make a witty charming pair. Definitely was a 90's favorite.

About this movie

Wiki

In the 1950s a super-secret government agency was formed to monitor and police the activities of extraterrestrial aliens on the planet Earth. Some 40 years later a founding father of the agency, Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), finds himself with a new smart-mouthed partner fresh from the NYPD who is soon dubbed Agent Jay (Will Smith). Their first mission is to save the Earth from destruction by a giant insectlike alien (Vincent D?Onfrio) that, incidentally, drives an exterminator?s truck. Armed with their matching Ray-Bans, skinny ties, and space-age weapons that Jay barely understands--he calls the Neuralyzer the "flashy thing"--the new duo begin another average day of fighting intergalactic terrorists. An amazingly hip and terribly clever movie that riffs on everything from E.T.--THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL to CASABLANCA, this Barry Sonnenfeld film is based on the equally savvy comic book by Lowell Cunningham.
