On the one hand, I think this was a good film that could have been a
better film if it wasn't Men in Black 3 and had to have several MiB set
pieces shoehorned in. (See "I, Robot", another underrated Will Smith film
less tied to legacy material, albeit for much more convoluted reasons.)

On the other hand, being a MiB sequel allowed them the shorthand of
J and K's characters. They didn't need to waste valuable screen time
establishing the characters and their relationship, because viewers of the
first two films were familiar with them. I wouldn't even play the "It's
Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, we know who their characters are" card,
because it was the MiB films that helped establish those characters.

There were a couple of shots designed as 3D gags, but nothing that made
me regret seeing it in 2D.

Does Tommy Lee Jones really look the way he did in the film, or was he made up to look even older? I swear, K in the film looked like Grandpa Simpson.

He's 65, so he's showing some age:
