With mostly hit-and-miss humour, a bored Tommy Lee Jones and an uninspired plot, "Men In Black II" is definitely a step down from its predecessor. Nevertheless, it can prove a pleasant hour-and-a-half: it might not add anything notable to the first film but the returning themes are welcome, the make-up and effects are once more great and the entire movie plays like basic, quick entertainment.

The film has no real direction, the fun has vanished from the first and the humour is dialled up to 11. You can see this film was rushed to capitalize on the first films success, the special effects are quite bad in scenes. The chemistry between Jones and Smith just isn't there this time around, the original film had the luxury of building the universe while this one feels the need to recycle. The whole film feels like a series of comedy sketches and not necessarily good, you just feel let down after the success of the first film. Will Smith looks bored and Jones is just going through the motioms in an otherwise tired film. This reminds you that not all sequels are going to deliver on the promise of using the foundation to deliver something just as impressive as the original. 22-11-2017.

Not near as good as the first one. It just doesn't have the same charm and humor of the first one either.

The second film is another classic sci-fi comedy film. Men in black II is really good and still a funny film with good effects and still awesome acting from tommy and will and I don't care what people say I love the second film and it will always be a classic. Well done Barry sonnenfeld you made yet again a awesome sequel well done.

Men in Black 2 was good but not as good as the first one. Sure the aliens were still cool but the villian was weaker this time and it didn't have the same flow the first part had. Overall, it was still enjoyable but it was a little bit disappointing. I rate it 3/5 OR 6/10

The only way to really enjoy this horrible movie is to watch it with the sound down and Jennifer Hicks dubbing her own actually funny version of the dialogue, otherwise this is a shitshow. MIB 2 is tow things, first it's one of those sequels that nobody wanted to do, it's clear in everything from the direction to the acting, secondly it's one of the worst studio blockbusters of the 2000's. Weirdly, neither returning Director Barry Sonnefeld not the two writers seem to remember what the made the first film funny, or smart, or entertaining, the witty humour and clever gags from the first movie are replaced by a way more broad, moronic vibe, with out of place moments of slapstick, plus a talking pug as a sidekick (he sings "who let the dogs out" in one scene, of course he does, how could they let that slide?) and an almost unbelievably irritating johnny Knoxville plus his even more irritating, awful mini second head (which is one of the most embarrassingly terrible and bizarre looking visual effects in a mayjor studio film in the early 2000's) sometimes it's like they took everything that was fun and memorable about the first and decided to blow it up and make it bigger, like the group of bantering smoking worm aliens from the first who get to become gun toting action heroes at the climax here. Then you've got Tommy Lee Jones, not that it would have saved the film but bringing him back wasn't the best idea in the first place considering that they wrapped that character very nicely in the first and proceed to undo all of that straight away in this, Jones looks bored, fed up throughout, he shares none of the chemistry with Smith (who is on full aggravating showboating dickhead form here) from part one, he looks like a man waiting to finish this damn movie so that he can run off with the check and buy another boat or pay for an especially grand holiday or something, he is lifeless and univested in a very visible way. If the first movie was Ghostbusters then this one takes all the worst qualities of Ghostbusters 2 (flatlining chemistry between the leads, a fading of the comedic spark first time around, the actual fact that no one wanted to make it) although where Ghostbusters 2 still maintained a sense of enjoyment, this is pure, cynical, stale product. On top of all that, besides the amazing array animatroic and puppeteered marvels that the legendary Rick Baker brings to life, the computer generated effects work here is shockingly horrible looking, it often seems unfinished, and with the lack of investment elsewhere here that seems highly likely, this is particularly true of the big action climax which features some of the most visually ugly and badly aged cgi in memory, between sticking an actors head on a cgi mini body (which looks like some grotesque moving photoshop) and what the fuck ever that big load of wiggly green shit is meant to be at the end, it's an eyeball insulting horrorshow. The plot too is terrible and half baked, and well done once again Hollywood for undervaluing Rosario Dawson and saddling the talented, funny and charismatic actress with a underwritten sub-role that leads to a "whatever" plot twist. Everone involved in this film (aside from Rick Baker, whose practical creatures are sadly some of the last of their kind in big films like this) has every reason to be ashamed of themselves, this is a really, really fucking poor movie.

Terrible installment from an amazing original. Poorly written and casted, gets too excited by CGI and forgets about the power of models and make up artists. A lot of the jokes don't land, and it lacks all of the cleverness and subtlety that made the original great.

You can't deny what Jones and Smith bring to this film to be nothing short of fun.

6/14/2017 (2): An ok movie at best, but very disappointing compared to the first one. An excellent cast though.

Not nearly as convincing or fun as the first, MIIB becomes cliche.
½ April 3, 2017
THE CGI is unwatchable and unacceptable given the time it was made and the fact that it was a sequel to a brilliant first effort. Just all in all a sloppy film.
March 25, 2017
nice CGI but hard to watch. the story line does not make any sense. if a single alien can overtake the MIB headquarters shut it down and release all the prisioners at once, how come earth its safe? should it not be some aliens working as MIB agents?
March 22, 2017
It wasn't as good as the first, but it was still decent enough.
March 20, 2017
Crap, rushed. Nowhere near as good as the first film.
