Movie Summary:

The latest movie in the MIB franchise; Agent J and Agent K are still partners until K learns of the escape of Boris the Animal. Boris was an old criminal Agent K had put behind bars after he popped up on the radar by killing other aliens. Agent J is highly interested in the case especially because Agent K refused to tell him more about the case.

The next day Agent J wakes up to find that things have changed, Agent K is dead and has been for forty years; the Earth is now under attack from an Alien invasion. At first J thinks he is going crazy but upon speaking with the head he learns of time travel and that he was there. He then ventures back in time to stop Boris.

Agent J gets there and runs into the younger version of Agent K and after K is unsuccessful of getting the truth J is placed into a giant neurolizer before J out of fear pleads and tells K the truth. The two pair up, J also learns of the relationship between K and O.

The two set out on the trail of Boris, after many unsuccessful searches they manage to find him and they also learn of the arc net which was created to prevent an attack from the Boris’ species. They find the holder, he is a forecaster (can see the future and the different possibilities). Boris’ younger self and the older self-meet and they trade growls before working together.

The forecaster gives them the arc-net and helps them to get it deployed, before he left he warned J that where there is death, there will always be death. The two agents with assistance from J’s father (he did not know yet) manage to get to the spaceship but were interrupted by Boris and His younger self.

They still manage to defeat them both and get the arc net deployed, it was after all the commotion that the younger Boris shows up and kills J’s father and K kills him, J was looking on in the distance and sees when his younger self comes out to meet K. J travels back in time and it is the next morning and everything is back to normal. The forecaster is there and provides a little scare but the movie ends with everything being as it should.


If you watched the first two Men in Black then this one is pretty much the same, it has a bit more jokes and emotion behind it but it is still J and K doing what they do best.
