After much publicity, hype and buzz in the industry MIB is finally here, and it has been worth the wait! Wicked's “Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody” lives up to all the excitement that surrounded this film from the day it was announced to be produced. Once again Brad Armstrong has fashioned a parody film that hits the mark and even offers plenty of humor and inside gags.
The storyline is right from the original mainstream film about alien invasions, strange things happening and the MIB agents going after the perpetrators to make things right in the world. It is a fun storyline that offers up a lot of laughs. Even Michael Jackson shows up, but then some thought he was an alien! There is also the changing of Agent J from male to female and then back again after the mission is completed. The portrayals of the main characters in the film are very well done, even in the bit roles. The special effects, the FX makeup, the settings, music are all spot on and lend to the overall production.
The sex scenes have a lot of steam and work well. The first scene is with Ethan Hunt as Agent J and India Summer as Dr. Laurel Weaver and takes place in the cold morgue, so you know the sex scenes are not going to be the norm and they're not, but they are hot. There is an alien girl/girl scene filmed by Edgar the Bug, played by Brad Armstrong and of course when the MIB agents all break into Estrella's a full blown orgy breaks out. Plus there are other sex scenes to keep you turned on as the story loves along.
As for the performances, James Bartholet in the Rip Torn role of Chief Z, or Zed, is terrific. The toupee' bit at the end is a hoot. Randy Spears as Agent K, takes the Tommy Lee Jones role and makes it his very own with his dry humor. Both Ethan Hunt and Misty Stone as Agent J definitely are a big plus in the old Will Smith role and jessica drake as Estrella The Vaginian is truly in a great element in the role. Even the smaller roles handled by the performers were very well carried out and the talking penises were pretty funny and added to the overall look and feel of the film.
I must say though that special kudos must go to first Brad Armstrong for creating and directing such a fun parody of a still very popular movie and getting the perfect cast together. Secondly extra special kudos goes to Chauncey Baker (Rick Baker relative?) and his crew for the incredible and clever special FX makeup on so many of the characters in the film. Overall, this is another five star parody that is a must see. Come awards time you can be sure that Wicked Pictures will have another strong contender in a number of award categories.
So have some fun, get turned on at the same time and get a hold of “Men in Black A Hardcore Parody”. It is a 5 star gem you won't be disappointed at all with!
