Not as impressive as the first one, or as funny. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones nailed it again in their MIB roles, but they're overshadowed by tons of bad CGI and some unfunny jokes, overall it's not more than another mediocre sequel.
Besides having good performances, once again, from Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, Men in Black II is a weak movie that lacks the freshness or hardly anything else which made the first film such an enjoyable movie.
This second installment of the " Men In Black " franchise was pretty well made, Will and Jones have tbe right chemistry to work with each other. Even tho it didn't made sense with the first film it was good to watch. The special effects were great and the comedy just comes out randomly especially with the dog. So for this being a good solid second installment and for having the same cast back and having new faces, I give " Men In Black 2 " C.
Despite the poor reception, this is a solid continuation of MEN IN BLACK with all of the deadpan humor, sci-fi excitement, action-packed set pieces and fantastic chemistry between Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones that made the original great.
