The review of this Movie prepared by Estefan Ellison

Tommy Lee Jones provides the brains, and Will Smith provides the humor as they take on the scum of the universe. When the aliens invade New York, Jones and Smith fight back with all kinds of futuristic gadgets and weapons. There's also an equally funny, if shorter, sequel called Men in Black 2.
The review of this Movie prepared by Teddy

This is a humourous movie about the idea of aliens living amongst us and
the agency that monitors their activity. One species fighting another and
earth is caught in the middle. Very funny, a must watch.

The review of this Movie prepared by Nancy Ferrinda

Tommy Lee Jones (K) takes on Will Smith (J) as a new trainee (and more) for the government department in charge of monitoring alien activity on Earth. Real space aliens, not earthbound illegal aliens. They have to track down a killer bug that's landed illegally on earth to kill an ambassador from another world and steal a galaxy he is in charge of protecting.
The review of this Movie prepared by Joeli Jackson

Tommy Lee Jones is looking for someone to replace him in the fight against alien invasion. No, not the ones with green cards, but those from outer space. Many of them are populating the earth in human disguise and they must be monitored and watched. Jones invites the top recruits of the armed forces and the police department to test them in their ability. Will Smith wins the job. Boy what he gets into!
