Barry Sonnenfeld United States, 1997

Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Men in Black

Full speed throughout this sci-fi comedy with a lot of visual gags and one-liners - many of them surprisingly funny. The duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith works. The effects were solid for it's time except the last effect sequences during the showdown with the bug which were terrible even when it premiered. The make-up is fantastic though but I would gladly have the theme song wiped from my memory please.
