Rating: ★★★★★

When I go into a movie and sit down and get blown away from the opening scene till the end of the movie and leave with only being disappointed because it ended then I know I have seen something that will be a block buster and go down in the books as one of the greatest films ever. Star Trek Into Darkness was one of these films and without any exaggerations I would dare to say the best in franchise history. Not only was it great it was clever on how they played on the alternate universe both separating this version of Star Trek as distinctly different and at the same time being honest and truthful to the spirit of the original . Honestly I cannot find flaw in this one. Even with the recreation of Khans character which I usually cant stand. But JJ Abrahams and the writers have to be commended on their interpretation. The movie itself was a work of art visually and full of action that would excite even the non-trekies. The story arc was clever and full of poignant moments that brought a soul to the film. Especially the play on Kirks and Spocks characters. All in all this fill got five stars and if I could would give it more. It is so far the must see movie of the year. Other films would be hard press to out do this one.

Plot from Wikipedia . Be warn severe spoiler in this one.

Plot

The USS Enterprise is sent to the planet Nibiru to observe a primitive civilization. Captain James T. Kirk violates the Prime Directive when Spock's life is jeopardized, exposing the Enterprise to the planet's civilization during the rescue. Called back to Earth, Kirk is demoted to first officer and Admiral Christopher Pike re-assumes command of the Enterprise. The two attend an emergency meeting at Starfleet Command to discuss the bombing of a secret Section 31 installation in London, perpetrated by former Starfleet agent John Harrison. The meeting is attacked by a small gunship piloted by Harrison, who kills Pike. Kirk neutralizes the gunship, but Harrison flees. With Pike dead, Kirk is reinstated as the Enterprise's captain. Discovering that Harrison has fled to the Klingon homeworld of Kronos, Kirk receives special permission from Admiral Alexander Marcus to hunt down Harrison. The Enterprise is supplied with 72 long-range prototype photon torpedoes, and is ordered to fire them at Harrison's location once he is found, however Scotty, Spock, Bones and Uhura convince Kirk to capture rather than kill Harrison.
Arriving at Kronos, an away team comprised of Kirk, Spock, and Uhura land to find Harrison, but are surrounded by Klingons. Harrison wipes out the Klingons and confronts the away team, but surrenders after learning the precise number of photon torpedoes (Sulu claims to have) aimed at him. Returning to the Enterprise, Harrison reveals his true identity as Khan, a genetically engineered superhuman who was awakened from his 300-year cryosleep by Admiral Marcus to develop advanced weapons for war against the Klingon Empire. The torpedoes are found to contain cryogenic pods with his colleagues inside, held hostage by Marcus.
The Enterprise is soon intercepted by an unmarked Federation drednought, the USS Vengeance, designed by Khan and commanded by Admiral Marcus. Marcus demands Kirk hand over Khan, but Kirk refuses. The Enterprise warps to Earth to have Khan stand trial, but is attacked by the Vengeance mid-warp, exiting 237,000 km from Earth. With the Enterprise severely damaged, Kirk offers to hand over Khan and the 72 pods in exchange for the lives of his crew, but Marcus refuses and orders the Enterprise's destruction. The Vengeance suddenly suffers a power outage caused by Montgomery Scott, who had infiltrated the ship after following coordinates given by Khan to Kirk. Kirk allies himself with Khan and boards the Vengeance, where they take the bridge. Khan betrays Kirk and takes control of the Vengeance, killing Marcus.
Khan negotiates with Spock, beaming Kirk and his boarding party back to the Enterprise in exchange for the 72 torpedoes, planning to destroy the Enterprise. Spock instead beams armed torpedoes to the Vengeance, keeping the cryo-pods on the Enterprise, having learned from Spock Prime of his experience with Khan in his parallel time-frame beforehand and becomes aware that Khan is 'mad' and cannot be trusted. The torpedoes incapacitate the Vengeance, and both damaged ships start descending towards Earth. Kirk re-aligns the Enterprise's warp core, enabling the crew to regain control of the ship, but contracts fatal radiation poisoning in the process. The Vengeance crashes in downtown San Francisco, where Spock pursues Khan on foot. Leonard McCoy experiments on a Tribble discovering that Khan's blood may save Kirk, while Uhura aids an enraged Spock in subduing Khan.
In the aftermath, Kirk is revived and returns to duty as captain of the Enterprise. Khan is sealed into his cryogenic pod and stored away with his colleagues. As the film ends, a restored Enterprise is re-christened and departs for a five-year mission of exploration.

Iron Man 3 Review

05 May 2013

Iron_Man_3_theatrical_poster

 

So the third installment and what may be the last one with Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Iron Man was release this weekend and it was a damn good movie. And from all the other reviews and box office ticket sales people would agree with that assessment . That is if you were not a hard core fan. And even if you were a hardcore fan there were some endearing parts that you can take away from it. So what was my take of the movie . I liked it but some of the parts I was use to seeing growing up in the Iron Man genre was missing. Also it was Deja Vu of the Spiderman series of movies with Tobey Maguire . They started out great and by the third one they tinkered with some of the plot and characters enough to make it ehhh. Let me explain. first let me get the negative part of the review out of the way because like I said i did like the movie even with the changes.
First of all. The messed with the The Mandarin that was played by Ben Kingsley who was also known as Trevor Slattery. A drunken British actor hired by Killian to pose as a terrorist who was the Mandarin persona who claims to be the leader of the international terrorist organization The Ten Rings. Kind of was a let down especially I was looking for a super villain that had mystical magical rings who was of oriental persuasion and was Tony' Starks/Iron mans arch enemy . In short the Mandarin character was a sham for another super villain who at the end exclaimed that I am the Mandarin . In reality it was a statement of who was running the terrorist organization then claiming the name. If you are wondering who the character I refer to is it was Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian ( see link for character back ground at Wikipedia ) .  There was also a sense of jamming in a finally to this film giving it a sense of closure even though the Iron Man character is set for the next Avengers movie . Plus there is rumblings of a glimmer of hope of a fourth installment even though all the press statements except for a handful say other wise. The other beef I had was that Iron Man 3 filled with some over the top type of plot sequences which after you settle back and reflect on the movie you tend to go hmmmmmmm . With that said there was not many of those moments  thankfully and the overall film was enjoyable.
Now to the positive parts. I really like that they took the tech out of Stark's hands. He had to think his way out of some of his toubles rather then muscle his way out of jams. Sort of like McGuyver. To me that was a good way of developing the character even more. Other parts that stood out were the effects and the humor in the movie. There were many spots where the characters played off each other brilliantly . I   especially enjoyed a scene at the end of the credits where Tony is sitting there spilling his guts out to Dr Banner who had dozed off during the whole story telling of the movie. After waking up Banner explains he is not that kind of Doctor.

All in all the movie for me had a split effect. One part of me enjoyed the movie soly on the entertainment part the other part was let down from the creative licensing that took place. So here is how I rate it

The part of me that loved this film gave it a 4 out of 5 stars

Rating: ★★★★☆

The part of me that that was a Marvel hard core fan gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

I will tell you this my kids enjoyed it. My neighbor said it was the best of the series  and many people I come across tend not to notice or care about whether or not it followed the comics true story line.  Either way it was enjoyable it had its great moments and for us hardcore fans it had some let downs.  Either way it is a got to go see movie.

 

Plot from Wikipedia

Tony Stark recalls a New Years Eve party in 1999 with scientist Maya Hansen, inventor of Extremis - an experimental regenerative treatment intended to allow recovery from crippling injuries. Disabled scientist Aldrich Killian offers them a place in his company Advanced Idea Mechanics, but is turned down.
Years later, Stark's experiences during the alien invasion of New York are giving him panic attacks. Restless, he has built several Iron Man suits, creating friction with his girlfriend Pepper Potts. A string of bombings by terrorist the Mandarin has left intelligence agencies bewildered by lack of forensic evidence. When Stark Industries security chief Happy Hogan is badly injured in one such attack, Stark overcomes his stupor and issues a televised threat to the Mandarin, who responds by destroying Stark's home with helicopter gunships. Potts and Hansen, who had come to warn them, survive the attack. Stark then finds himself in rural Tennessee after his artificial intelligence JARVIS followed a flight plan from Stark's investigation into the Mandarin. Stark's experimental armor lacks sufficient power to return to California, and the world believes him dead.
Teaming with Harley, a precocious 10-year-old boy, Stark investigates the remains of a local explosion bearing the hallmarks of a Mandarin attack. He discovers the "bombings" were triggered by soldiers subjected to Extremis, which at this stage of development can cause certain subjects to explosively reject it. After veterans started exploding, their deaths were used to cover up Extremis' flaws by manufacturing a terrorist plot. Stark witnesses Extremis firsthand when Mandarin agents Ellen Brandt and Eric Savin attack him.
With Harley's help, Stark traces the Mandarin to Miami and infiltrates his headquarters using improvised weapons. Inside he discovers the Mandarin is actually a British actor, Trevor Slattery, who says that he is oblivious to the actions carried out in his name. The Mandarin is a creation of Killian, who appropriated Hansen's Extremis research as a cure for his own disability and expanded the program to include injured war veterans. After capturing Stark, Killian reveals he is the true Mandarin; he has kidnapped Potts and subjected her to Extremis, intending to infuse her with superhuman abilities and turn her against Stark as leverage to gain Stark's aid in fixing Extremis' flaws. Killian kills Maya when she has a change of heart about the plan.
Killian has also manipulated American intelligence agencies regarding the Mandarin's location, luring James Rhodes—the former War Machine, now re-branded as the Iron Patriot—into a trap to steal the armor. Stark escapes and reunites with Rhodes, discovering that Killian intends to attack President Ellis aboard Air Force One. Remotely controlling his Iron Man armor, Stark saves some surviving passengers and crew but cannot stop Killian from abducting Ellis. They trace Killian to an impounded oil-drilling platform where Killian intends to kill Ellis on live television. The vice president will become a puppet leader, following Killian's orders in exchange for Extremis to cure his daughter's disability.
On the platform, Stark goes to save Potts, and Rhodes saves the president. Stark summons each of his Iron Man suits, controlled remotely by JARVIS, to provide air support. Rhodes secures the president and leads him to safety, while Stark discovers Potts has survived the Extremis procedure. However, before he can save her, a rig collapses around them and she falls to her apparent death. Stark confronts Killian and traps him in an Iron Man suit that self-destructs, but fails to kill him. Potts, whose Extremis powers allowed her to survive her fall, intervenes and kills Killian.
After the battle, Stark orders JARVIS to destroy each Iron Man suit as a sign of his intention to devote more time to Potts. The vice president and Slattery are arrested. With Stark's help, Potts' Extremis effects are stabilized, and Stark undergoes surgery to remove the shrapnel embedded near his heart. He pitches his obsolete chest arc reactor into the sea, musing he will always be Iron Man.
In a present day post-credits scene, Stark wakes up Dr. Bruce Banner, who fell asleep listening at the beginning of Stark's story.

Batman The Dark Knight Rises Review

05 Aug 2012

Rating: ★★★★½

As this version of the Batman trilogy saga ends it takes a uniques spin on the Dark Knight legend which also happens to the best of all the Batman films to date. The Dark Knight Rises delivers on all fronts. It ties up loose ends with the League of Shadows, Ra's al Ghul, and Harvey Dent's crimes which if you have not seen the previous movie left Batman as the villain and retired from crime fighting. It introduces Bane, Cat Woman and the child go Ra Al Ghul. The effects were excellent along with the camera work. The story was gripping even in the slow parts . And for the most part that action was more then you expect from a comic movie. I particularly like like how it held true to the previous two movies in the series. All to often the movies take creative licensing and vares off from the original story or character make up. This one did not. So feel comfortable in the thought that the when you go to see this movie and you have followed the series you wont have to rack your brain thinking to yourself. Man what is wrong with these people for changing that or damn did I miss something in the last movie. I think sometimes directors get caught up with the that would be cool factor to change things around that they forget that the audience for the most part hates it. Which usually is a sign that the death bells will soon ring for that particular version of the franchise. Then again this version of Batman took some bold moves from the start of the movie that were different then all the rest of the movies previously done . But hey what can you say they did it right and but like I said they held true to that format.
The one scene I had mixed feelings for was the ending where the film suggest that there will be someone else other then Bruce Wayne playing the Batman part.That is when John Blake a detective who gets close to Brice is told by Bruce that Batman is more then the person inside a suit. Which suggest that anyone could be Batman . Then agin the movie went on to explain that John Blake's real first name was Robin which opens up an interesting avenue for the film makers to take. Hmmmm a Nightwing movie could be an intriguing possibility.
So my take on Batman is this . It is as near perfect as a movie you can get Batman the Dark Knight Rises will not disappoint fans and it will be very entertaining to most of the non fans of the genre because of the share epic feel of the movie. It with out a doubt is a must see movie.

Plot Summery from Wikipedia

Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, Gotham City is in a state of peace. Under powers granted by the Dent Act, Commissioner James Gordon has nearly eradicated violent and organized crime. Gordon feels guilty about the cover-up of Harvey Dent's crimes, but decides that the city is not ready to hear the truth. While following a lead in the abduction of a congressional representative, Gordon's speech falls into the hands of the villain Bane, who discovers the truth about Dent. Gordon is shot in the process of escaping and promotes patrol officer John Blake to detective, allowing Blake to report directly to him.
As Batman has disappeared from Gotham, so too has Bruce Wayne, locking himself inside Wayne Manor. Wayne Enterprises is crumbling after he invested in board member Miranda Tate's clean energy project, designed to harness fusion power, and shut it down after learning that the core could be modified to become a nuclear weapon. Both Blake—who has deduced Batman's identity—and Gordon implore Batman to return. Bane attacks the stock exchange and bankrupts Bruce, forcing him to relinquish control of Wayne Enterprises. Correctly suspecting that his business rival, John Daggett, employed Bane to aid in an aggressive take-over of his company, Wayne entrusts Tate to keep full control out of Daggett's hands. However, Bane has other plans, and kills Daggett to take control of his infrastructure.
Following a trail left by cat burglar Selina Kyle, Batman locates Bane, who says that he took over the League of Shadows following Ra's al Ghul's death. In the following confrontation, Bane physically cripples Batman then places him in a prison from which escape is virtually impossible. The other inmates relate the story of how Ra's al Ghul's child was the only person, through necessity and the sheer force of will, to ever escape the prison. Batman believes that the child grew up to become Bane. Meanwhile, Bane lures most of Gotham's police force underground and sets off explosions across the city, trapping the officers and turning Gotham into an isolated city-state. Any attempt to leave the city will result in the detonation of the Wayne Enterprises fusion core, now converted into a bomb. Bane publicly reveals the cover-up of Dent's death and releases the prisoners in Blackgate Prison. The rich and powerful are forcibly brought before a show trial presided over by Jonathan Crane.
Bruce recovers from his injuries and retrains himself physically. He successfully escapes the penitentiary and returns to Gotham, enlisting Kyle, Blake, Tate, Gordon and Lucius Fox to help liberate the city and stop the fusion bomb. As Batman, he subdues Bane, but Tate intervenes and reveals herself to be Talia al Ghul. It was she who escaped the prison as a child, returning with her father and the League of Shadows to rescue Bane, the one person who aided her in prison. She plans to complete her father's work by destroying Gotham and avenging his death at Wayne's hands. Gordon blocks the bomb's ability to be remotely detonated while Kyle saves Batman by shooting Bane. Batman tries to force Talia to take the bomb to the fusion chamber where it can be stabilized, but she remotely floods the chamber. Talia dies when her truck crashes off the road, confident that the bomb cannot be stopped. Using an aircraft developed by Fox, Batman hauls the bomb beyond the city limits, where it detonates over the ocean and apparently kills him.
Batman is later praised as a hero and Wayne is presumed killed in the riots. After Bruce's funeral, Blake wants to reveal Batman's identity to the world as a tribute to Bruce, but Gordon reminds him that it is best left as a mystery to the uninformed. Gordon later finds that the Bat-Signal has been repaired. The Wayne estate is divided up to cover any debts, with the manor left in the city's possession to become an orphanage and the rest going to Alfred. Fox discovers that Bruce programmed the autopilot on the aircraft six months before he left to face Bane and Talia. Alfred witnesses Wayne and Kyle alive together at a café in Italy, while Blake inherits the Batcave.

John Carter (Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy) Review

12 Jul 2012

 

 

Rating: ★★★★☆

 

After all the panning and all the put downs on this film I finally decided to take a gander for myself and see what was so bad about it. So I decided to get the 3D / Blue Ray Version and check it out.  I have to tell you my expectations were lower by all the negative reviews that floated around so when I sat back and watched I kept saying to myself. This is not the worst movie I have see. Matter of fact it was not to bad at all. I enjoyed some of the scenes. The effects were top notch and there was those few spots where I even laughed. So whats the big deal about this film that made people reject it right away. Grant it the budget was way way to much for it and as always with these films they had some creative licensing. But all in all the film was not painful to watch. Rather it was the opposite for the most part.   And it seems I am not the only one. When I went on Amazon to purchase it the reviews for the most part was positive . In fact when I went to check the ratings and the review for this post  I found that the spread was even more in favor of the movie then when I originally  purchased it. there was 484 that gave it 5 stars , 134 for 4,  37 for 3 , 23 for 2 and 35 for 1. As for the extra features I have not fully delved into that yet . Just a brushing over them to see what was what. It pretty much has your standard extra features as listed here.

 Features

• Blu-ray 3D (TM) Feature Film  (Fantastically done)
• Blu-ray Feature Film + Bonus
• DVD Feature Film+ Bonus
• Digital Copy of Feature Film
• Disney Second Screen  (Pretty cool feature)
• 360 Degrees of John Carter
• Deleted Scene with Option Commentary by Director Andrew Stanton
• Barsoom Bloopers ( good for a couple of chuckles)
• 100 Years in the Making
• Audio Commentary with Film Makers

 

All in all it is worth a purchase and is not a waste of money. Now the question is why was it panned so much. I have one theory. They hype was more then the film where I was expecting much less then it really was.  Either that or some critiques need to chill bait and learn to take things as they are.

 

Plot from Wikipedia

 

After the sudden "death" of John Carter, a former American Civil War Confederate Army captain, his nephew Edgar Rice Burroughs (whom Carter called "Ned") attends the funeral. As per Carter's instructions, the body is put in a tomb that can only be unlocked from the inside; his attorney hands over Carter's personal journal for Ned to read, in the hope of finding clues explaining Carter's reason of death.

The film flashes back to the Arizona Territory, where Union Colonel Powell arrests Carter; Powell, knowing about Carter's military background, wants his help in fighting the Apache. However, Carter escapes, with the guards in pursuit. In an ensuing chase both Carter and Powell find themselves in a cave in which Carter had been looking for gold. A Thern appears in the cave at that moment; Carter kills him and, with the help of his medallion, is unknowingly transported to Barsoom (Mars). There, because of his different bone density and planet's low gravity, Carter is able to jump high and perform feats of incredible strength. He is captured by the Green Martian Tharks and their Jeddak (meaning "king") Tars Tarkas.

Elsewhere on Barsoom, the Red Martian cities of Helium and Zodanga have been at war for a thousand years. Sab Than, Jeddak of Zodanga, armed with a special weapon obtained from the Therns, proposes a cease-fire and an end to the war by marrying the Princess of Helium Dejah Thoris. The Princess makes an escape and is saved by Carter. Carter, Dejah and Tarkas' daughter Sola embark on a quest to get to the end of a sacred river to find a way for Carter to get back home. There they find information about the ninth ray, a means of utilizing infinite energy and also the key to understand how the medallion works, but they are attacked by the Thern leader Matai Shang and his minions, the Green men of Warhoon. After the attack, Carter is captured and is taken back with Dejah while Sola is able to escape. The demoralized Dejah grudgingly agrees to marry Sab Than, then gives Carter his medallion and tells him to go back to Earth. Carter decides to stay back and is captured by Shang, who tells him the purpose of Therns and how they manipulate the civilizations on different planets. Carter is able to make an escape and he and Sola go back to the Tharks and ask for their help. There they discover Tarkas has been overthrown by Tal Hajus. Tarkas, Carter and Sola are put on trial in a gladiatorial battle with two vicious ape-like creatures. After defeating them and killing Hajus, Carter becomes the leader of the Tharks.

The Thark army charges on Helium and defeats the Zodangan army by killing Sab Than. Carter becomes prince of Helium by marrying Dejah. On their first night, Carter decides to stay forever on Mars and throws away his medallion. Seizing this opportunity Shang banishes him back to Earth. Carter embarks in a long quest, looking for clues of the Therns' presence on Earth and hoping to find one of their medallions; after several years he appears to die suddenly and asks for unusual funeral arrangements – this is consistent with him having found a medallion, since his return to Mars would leave his Earth body in a coma-like state. He made Ned his protector, giving him clues about how to open the tomb. The film reverts to the present, where Ned runs back to Carter's tomb and opens it only to find it empty. Matai Shang suddenly appears, having followed Ned all the while, but as he prepares to kill Ned, Carter appears and kills him, then tells Ned that he never found a medallion; instead, he made a scheme to lure Shang out of hiding. Carter takes his medallion, whispers the code, and is finally transported back to Barsoom.

Men in Black 3 Review

18 Jun 2012

 

Rating: ★★★★☆

This movie was different in some ways then the first two. It had a darker and more somber tone to it and it felt like there was a sense of closure as this was the last one . On the other hand both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have publicly said they would do a 4 if the opportunity presented itself and the film was not by no means a dud. So lets see.
As for the film itself I liked it. It was well done , both Smith and Lee was excellent as they always are and the plot was a good one. What more could you ask. The film also drew a picture of Agent J and K's real relationship with what ended up showing agent K's real reason for recruiting J for MIB in the first film. If you have not seen the film you will see what I mean . Or if you want just read the plot with the spoiler below.

So my finally take on the film is a 4 out 5 stars

  • Solid story
  • Always great acting with Lee and Smith
  • Good effects
  • and great twist

Go see but be warned like the others its not really fro little ones no matter how tempting it is to bring them. Think twice.

 

Plot and spoiler from Wikipedia

The intergalactic criminal Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) is aided in escape by his girlfriend, Lily Poison (Nicole Scherzinger), from the LunarMax prison on Earth's moon. He is intent on going back in time and killing Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), who on July 16, 1969, shot off his arm and captured him. After investigating a spaceship crash in New York City, and following a skirmish in a Chinese restaurant, Boris appears, and K and J give chase. Boris reveals to K, "you are already dead, you just don't know it yet," and then disappears in an explosion. K deduces that Boris has escaped, and K regrets not having killed him. He returns to his apartment, where all traces of him disappear. Agent J (Will Smith), however, still remembers K, though no one else at Men in Black headquarters does.

Agent O (Emma Thompson), the new Chief deduces from J's statements that a fracture has occurred in the space-time continuum. The two realize Boris must have time-jumped to 1969 and killed K, resulting in an imminent invasion of Earth by his race, the Boglodites, due to the absence of the protective ArcNet shield around Earth, installed by K in 1969. Aided by electronic-shop owner Jeffrey Price, son of Boris' fellow prisoner Obadiah Price, who created the time-travel device, J time-jumps off the Chrysler Building to reach time-travel velocity (Jeffrey also cryptically, though excitedly, informing J that the reason he remembers K where nobody else can is because he was 'there'). With only 24 hours to stop Boris, J arrives a day before Boris kills K.

J follows a clue to Coney Island, where 29-year-old junior agent K (Josh Brolin) arrests him and then questions him at MIB headquarters, while a young Agent O (Alice Eve) and Chief X come by. Getting no answers, K decides to place J in a large, primitive Neuralyzer. At the last second, J says he'll tell the truth of his mission and that he is from the future. As a team, they follow Boris' trail to a bowling alley and then to The Factory, the studio / party space of Andy Warhol's (Bill Hader), who is actually the undercover Agent W. The Agents meet the alien Griffin (Michael Stuhlbarg), an Arcadian who possesses the ArcNet and is able to see all possible futures. Griffin leaves before Boris arrives to snatch him. The Agents locate Griffin at Shea Stadium, where he gives them the ArcNet and instructs them to place it onto the Apollo 11 lunar rocket launch occurring in less than six hours. Boris then snatches Griffin, but the agents, on monocycles, give chase and recover Griffin.

Upon arriving at Cape Canaveral, the agents and Griffin are arrested by military police. A Colonel (Mike Colter), however, allows the agents to carry on their mission after Griffin uses his precognitive power to show him what J and K will accomplish. J uses the time-jump device to confuse Boris- allowing Boris to shoot him before jumping back in time so that he can attack Boris again while avoiding the alien's attacks-, and pushes him off the pad. K, battling the younger Boris, ruptures a hose, causing it to spray liquid nitrogen on Boris' left arm, shattering it. K plants the ArcNet on the rocket, and the protective shield deploys after leaving Earth's atmosphere, the launch sequence destroying the present Boris. The Colonel congratulates K, who invites him to join the agency.

As J watches from the distance, however, 1969 Boris emerges from the blast chamber and kills the Colonel, only to be killed by K. A child named James exits a military vehicle looking for his father. He pulls out a pocket watch, revealed earlier to have been passed down to Agent J by his father, and J realizes that the colonel killed by Boris was actually his father. K neuralyzes young James, telling him his father was a hero, thus fulfilling the 'prediction' that J would be present at the moment history changed.

J returns to the present day, where he meets his partner at the usual diner. There, he shows K his father's pocket watch. The senior agent, in return, tells him it was an honor to have met him that fateful day. As they leave the diner, Griffin, a few seats away, muses all is well with the world (breaking the fourth wall in the process and revealing to the audience that his powers of observation also make him aware of the real world moviegoers), except for the fact that K forgot to leave a tip, indicating they are in a timeline where the Earth is about to be hit by an asteroid. Then, K returns to the diner and leaves a tip, revealing this timeline to be one where the asteroid disintegrates when hitting a satellite, and the film ends.
