Review
Generally considered to be an improvement over its predecessor (click here), MEN IN BLACK III did have a great concept as well as a great story which is something that the second movie has lacked. I gotta admit that everything works well in the movie, especially the humour, a noticeable cameo of Lady Gaga and the acting performance of Josh Brolin who is a perfect match for Tommy Lee Jones as he plays the young version of his character.

Like all improved sequels, MIB III exceeds the expectations for those who have been disappointed at the last one, but manages to return the film series after a hiatus and it's a feature that the fans don't want to miss.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
