WHAT WAS GOOD?
After the mediocre Men In Black 2 hopes were not very high for the third entry in the MIB franchise so it came as quite a surprise that MIB 3 was actually quite good. Sure just like the second movie there was no real need for another Men In Black film, yet thanks to impressive perfomances from its three leads (Smith, Jones & Brolin) MIB 3 didn't outstay its welcome. Josh Brolin's perfomance as the young agent K was pitch perfect and not only did his inclusion allow for a smooth transition between the two time periods it also filled the gap left over during Tommy Lee Jones' screen absence.
Additional highlights included the clever use of '60s iconography such as Andy Warhol and the Apollo 11 mission; the removal of a heavy reliance on 'comedy' aliens (which was MIB 2's downfall); and a new insight into J and K's relationship.
