ProStacks upon stacks of extra features.

ConsUnecessary inclusion of 4:3 ratio version.

Now, Men in Black was already a superb film. What has always been good about it is it's perfect suitability to just plonk yourself down and watch it on the spur of the moment. With the incredible amount of extra features included on this DVD you will be plonking yourself down for a considerable...

“Turn on, tune in, gross out”

published 20/07/2000

ProIt's over quickly

ConsWeak, gross, not enough laughs

This film was heavily hyped when it was released, but not being a sucker for hype I gave it a miss. Bored one night I got it out on video, figuring the Tommy Lee Jones was at least watchable. Shame about Will Smith's ears. The beginning was great, good special effects, and a great intro to the...

“MiB Hot Stuff”

published 23/07/2000

I have never been a fan of this type of film, but Men In Black really did something for me. The film has everything - a good plot, great actors, good scenery and effects and a good soundtrack. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones play the parts of two MiB agents tracking down a mysterious alien (a bug)...

It's amazing how simple it is to make a really good comedy without having to try too hard with a busy script. Men In Black is just such a comedy, played very firmly with tongue-in-cheek and not to be taken at all seriously. The story is simple yet very rich & entertaining (although it also...

I don't know how many times I've seen this film to be honest. But after not having seen it for a long time, I watched it again with my family recently. I was somewhat surprised to find that even after all this time, the film did not seem old, tired or boring. I even laughed louder than I had...

This is a really really good film. It is possibly the greatest Sci-Fi comedy of all time. It stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones who are both perfectly cast as the Men In Black.

I read quite a few reviews myself before going out and buying this. I wasn’t disappointed. This must rate as one of the best region two DVD’s available. The extras contained in the special edition version could easily have been sold as a separate disk. The inclusion of a full screen version of...

“So where is men in black two”

published 25/01/2001

Progreat special effects, and acting

Consplot is a bit predictable

This UFO myth has been going for a long time and is what inspired the Marvel comic on which the film is based. I've expect you've never heard of the comic because it only ran for six issues. But due to the success of this film I'm sure it will resurface along with a new comic. An animated series...

Product Information : Men In Black (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

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.

Review: "...Dryly clever....Extraordinarily ambitious, with all-star design and special-effects talent and a genuinely artful visual style..." (New York Times, p.C9, 01/07/1997)<br><br>"...The out-there premise is irresistible.... Effects master Rick Baker whips up a swell array of oddball creatures great, small and just plain strange..." -- 4 out of 4 stars (USA Today, p.1D, 01/07/1997)<br><br>
