Its been quite a while since the first Men in Black film deputed in 1997, and 10 years since the sequel, but Men In Black III was a pleasant surprise that did more to scratch away at the titular characters than the last installment.

Men in Black follows returning stars Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) and Agent Jay (Will Smith) who, like before, are busy protecting the earth from any alien bad guys.

The films highest achievement was the ability to convey more about the heroes, their pasts and pry away at Kays emotional defenses. While you may need to brush up on the character after 10 years of separation, Kay isnt exactly an open-book even for his partner.

Jones and Smith play the typical buddy-cop tandem, with Smith supplying the loud-boisterous jokes and comedic relief while Jones has two expressions: seriousness and an intriguing look of a man who carries more weight than the films ever reveal to the audience.
