MEN IN BLACK (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Men in Black—
unforgettable film that establishes classic status within the first five minutes—doesn’t flag in its deliverance of originality, creativity, and novelty in every scene and dialogue line. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are a great casting combination. Tony Shalhoub, Vincent D’Onofrio, Rip Torn, and Siobhan Fallon Hogan are terrific choices for supporting cast. This film is award winning entertainment. Great storyline, script, and portrayal. The imaginative rendering of a variety of alien life forms makes this movie outstanding.
