Plot : Kay and Jay reunite to provide our best, last and only line of defense against a sinister seductress who levels the toughest challenge yet to the MIB's untarnished mission statement – protecting Earth from the scum of the universe. It's been four years since the alien-seeking agents averted an intergalactic disaster of epic proportions. Now it's a race against the clock as Jay must convince Kay – who not only has absolutely no memory of his time spent with the MIB, but is also the only living person left with the expertise to save the galaxy – to reunite with the MIB before the earth submits to ultimate destruction.

I’d say the movie holds up a lot better all these years later because 1. it’s not right after the first MIB and my expectations weren’t super high and 2. after years of seeing Will Smith either not care enough about the movie to try or try too hard to get an Oscar it was awesome to just see him having fun and doing what he does best again.

I don't know that _Men in Black II_ is really thaaat much worse than the rest of the trilogy, as most other people seem to think. I mean, in my opinion, it's actually better than the third. But these are all basically the same movie. So they can only go so right or so wrong from one to the other to the other. It's not awful (well, the faces on that poster are, my god), but it's not like... good. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._

_**Fun sequel, but not as good as the first one**_ Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith and Rip Torn return in this sequel about a secret government agency based in New York City that deals with extraterrestrial interactions on Earth. Like the original 1997 movie, "Men in Black II" (2002) is amusing & thrilling in the first half, but loses its mojo a bit in the second half where some of the jokes fall flat. If you’ve seen the first film, there’s no need to see this one; but, if you want more with slight variations, then check it out. It’s the lesser movie, but it still fills the bill for when you’re in the mood for fun & thrilling popcorn entertainment. On the female front, Linda Fiorentino is absent, replaced by Lara Flynn Boyle as the villain and Rosario Dawson as a pizzaria employee that catches Jay’s eyes. Meanwhile, the stunning Paige Brooks appears in a couple of small scenes. The next two sequels are: Men in Black 3” (2012) and “Men in Black: International” (2019); the latter is the only entry in the series (so far) without Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. The film runs 1 hour, 28 minutes, and was shot in New York City & surrounding area (e.g. Fire Island for the Post Office scene), as well as Los Angeles/Culver City/Pasadena. GRADE: B-/C+

Decent watch, probably won't watch again, and can only recommend if you REALLY liked the first on and MIB International isn't available. They literally start the movie by subtly explaining why the formula doesn't work without Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, hell Patrick Warburton would have been an AWESOME option to be in the movie for real. This is a weird one because the movie is well cast, it has an interesting premise and villain, and the story is well written up to a point. And hell adding Rosario Dawson makes anything better, but this one just lands weak. They seem to do a worst job of showing us all the same tricks (sometimes literally) from the first movie, but Agent K feels shoehorned in, and the resolution isn't satisfying at all. Maybe if there was an epilogue, but the movie is from the perspective of the MIB and they're planet side only. The threat is also weird. They could have taken their time and did a mystery movie, but instead they put a clock on it and rush it so it's barely interesting and there is no connecting logical dots for deductions. Then it's arbitrary when the do figure it out, and there is no explanation of why, how or what actually lead up to that. It is literally no information leading up to a fact, then no information resulting from that fact other than a simple reaction. The first movie is just better, and MIB International is a lot more fun.

The first in this franchise had the advantage of being an original, quirky and entertaining spoof of all things sci fi with a couple of characterful detectives trying to stop world decimation. This just drags that enjoyable concept, kicking and screaming, into a sequel that is nowhere near as good, as well written, nor do Tommy Lee Jones ("K") or Will Smith ("J") have anything like enough to work with to make this film anything other than an unremarkable story overly-featuring a talking dog. The premise is that "K" has left the "MIB" and so obviously has no memories of his time at the agency. With global extermination looming yet again, "J" knows that his only hope is to reactive his erstwhile mentor's memories - and quickly. Easier said than done! "J" gradually comes to realise, though, that "K" had anticipated some sort of necessity for his return and so had left some mnemonic clues for them both to find enabling him, we hope, to return to fighting fitness. The nature of the story has flipped the dynamic leaving much more of the frankly irritating "J" in pole position far too often for me, and "Z" (Rip Torn) doesn't make much of an impact either as we are introduced to a special effects fest of alien creations that go some way to creating a bit of a sense of fun with this otherwise disappointing follow-up. Too much dialogue and too much Will Smith - one film was plenty.

Not as good as the first, but still pretty good. This time agent J has to make agent K remember who he is. Agent K needs his help on a case. Again really funny movie, especially the tiny aliens.
