Many have made movies on aliens trying to destroy Earth and many have produced conspiracy theories that there are 'other' people living alongside the humans without them knowing anything. And if you are wondering who exactly is responsible in keeping the alien secret away from human beings, meet the Men in Black. A secret government funded organisation to protect Earth from creatures from outer space, Men in Black agents have no trace, identity or any proof of existence whatsoever. Agent K (Lee Jones) recruits an NYPD police officer James Edwards (Smith) who later comes to be known as Agent J. An alien 'bug' enters Earth and uses the skin of a certain Edgar (D'Onoforio) to disguise itself and blend with the humans. The bug is looking for other aliens on the planet who hold the 'galaxy'. K and J need to find and destroy the bug before he gets his hand on the mysterious 'galaxy' and brings doom to Earth. As mentioned before, alien conspiracy's are nothing new but the touch of sarcastic humour takes things to the next level. It's a wholesome entertainment package with decent action, comedy and some mystery and suspense as garnish on the top. Don't expect fireworks but maybe with some more destructive and gripping action sequences the movie could have been much better.
Thumbs up: Great all rounder
Thumbs down: Not enough action
