I enjoyed this a lot more than I was expecting. It's light, fun, fairly well constructed, looks great, and packs a surprising emotional punch. The set pieces are exciting and bigger in scale than anything else in this series, and the visual effects and alien design are clever and whimsical. It's nice to see Smith back on the screen, charismatic as ever, and Tommy Lee Jones is fine in his shrunken role. The film's biggest delight, though, is Josh Brolin. I also loved the 60s production design and the film has some really great jokes. Also, Michael Stuhlbarg is wonderful, which is becoming quite common.
The beginning is a little sloppy and it takes a bit to get going, but once it does it is smooth sailing. You could certainly do worse than this.
