Even more jokes than the first Men In Black
Verified purchase
Men In Black II had Agent J (Will Smith) re-uniting with Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) to save the Earth from Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle) who was looking for the Light of Zartha on Earth.

The movie had even more jokes than the first MIB. That started with J teaming up with Frank the alien talking dog. Then when J goes to find K he’s working at the post office and all the other workers are aliens as well including a cameo by Biz Markie. These scenes continued throughout the film.

Of course there were plenty of new aliens that got introduced. Agent J and Agent K got to shoot their laser guns and there was a big confrontation with Serleena at the end.

Overall, it was another great release mixing comedy, action, and sci-fi.

Looking for DIGITAL COPY? Not on this one!
Verified purchase
Much like the Men in Black (+ UltraViolet Digital Copy)(Blu-ray) selling for a reduced price, this version, despite the description, DOES NOT include a digital copy. I returned it as well.
Hey Amazon, kindly fix the description of this product so the consumers does not make a mistake of buying them for the digital copy that it does not have.

Ok, but not nearly as good as the first or third movies

MIB 2 is ok, but not nearly as good as the first or third movies. Still worth seeing if you can pick it up as a cheap rental.

░░░░░IT GROWS ON YOU░░░░░

You can't say Men in Black II was as good as the original. It's just not. When I first saw it in the theater years ago I didn't like it much at all. But over the years it's grown on me. It's funny. The characters don't change in the sequel, which is just about the worst thing you can do in a follow up. K is still K and J is still J.

I actually learned to appreciate how the entire movie is made to be reminiscent of a 1950's serial sci fi film. It's cheesy, but with modern special effects.

What the movie lacks is a good story. That's where it's weak. You just don't care if anyone finds the Light of Zarthon or not.

It's worth watching. It grows on you after a while to the point where it's worth 90 minutes of your time. But the first and third installments in the series were better.

Not your average action film!
Verified purchase
It had been awhile since I first saw MIB I, so I had forgotten some of the peculiarities of this storyline. Now having recently seen MIB II, I'm surprised I didn't remember! Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones make a great couple of "planet protecting special agents"! Additionally, the special effects for the alien creatures used in the show are very impressive, considering how far digital graphic effects have evolved in the past decade. I'd call this an entertaining film suitable for families with children above the age 7. There is lots of action, special effects body morphing and object transforming (I love cars that convert to spacecraft at the push of a button). There is also great humor, and lots of science-fiction weaponry. It's the classic saga of good over evil, saving the world from destruction by alien forces sent to planet Earth. You'll enjoy it, despite the predictable ending that we all expect in such tales.

Not as good at MIB I.
Verified purchase
I had watched the MIB movies several years ago and wanted to share them with my 13 year old grandson. My viewing history must have been incomplete because I had not seen this one but had viewed MIB I and III. In my opinion, this one is worth skipping. Both of us felt it was lacking and wish we would have played a board game instead. Sorry Will!

They're back in black, but grey woulda been fine. This movie tries too hard. The jokes are often overplayed, the special effects and the plot seem reused and even the TommyLeeJones/Will Smith chemistry that was so awesome in the first movie is...meh, here.

Hey, they call this kind of movie a sequel nowadays! So, no mystery here - another second rate repeat of a first rate original.

Come on! The premise, the stars, the special effects - this should be a great movie. Maybe my expectations were too high. Watchable, though.

Better than average sequel
Verified purchase
The problem with sequels is that they become topheavy with the expectations of those that saw the original, the producers relentlessly (and shamelessly) striving to seduce every possible viewer that is seeing it just to catch their favorite character or situation. God forbid that you leave out the little dog that talks, or the googly-eyed guy or the neuralizer. I mean, after all, someone might walk away disappointed saying, "Gee, I sure wish they included those weasly smoking guys!" I can only think of a few that I really liked better than the original - Like Godfather II, and even that does it's share of pandering the audience. Even so, it is suprising, and refreshing when a sequel works at all. Happily, MIB II does its job, and seduces without pandering. Well, maybe that is generous. I suppose I could get used to a little pandering, as long as it is really taseless. Everything is there, but each refreshingly different enough from the original to keep our attention. Sure the story is fairly predictable, but after all, this isn't Our Town. Here Frank is a grown-up agent and is hanging around with the dog guy. They need to find "The Light" or the world will end. K (Kevin) is the only guy who knows where it is, and he, of course had his ming erased at the end of MIB I. He needs to get his memory back, and, well, you get the idea. it's pretty much fun, albeit mindless. It is good for a yuk with the kids over popcorn on Saturday night, and Lara Flynn Boyle would keep my attention even if the movie was a dog (no pun intended). If she reads this, or if you know her, tell her that I hope that I see her in the sequel.
