MIB III is a fun yet completely unnecessary sequel that reunites Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, and lots of yucky aliens. But the best special effect of them all is Josh Brolin. The time travel story allows Brolin to not just impersonate a younger Jones, he BECOMES him. It’s that burst of freshness that keeps Men from just being a typical sequel. The other Jones seems to have just punched in for his paycheck, Smith is his usual fun self, and the big bad is disgusting (that’s a compliment). Aside from Brolin, MIB III is fast food: tastes good in the moment, forgotten soon after.
