Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy Sci-Fi - Very similar to the original "Men In Black." There are lots of wild creatures and a few excellent action scenes, but I believe there's a little less action this time around. It's still a fast paced story with lots of humor throughout.

Above Average

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Above Average "Like the first ''Men in Black,'' only more so, what unspools here is something close to a new definition of a Hollywood movie, less a story or even an adrenaline ride than a rambunctious, self-referential fantasy bauble at once overblown and weightless -- a couple of hours (or, in this case, just 88 minutes) of Stuff to Watch.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "Viewed as a cartoon come to life, Men in Black II does the job, albeit barely. It's not nearly as fresh or enjoyable as its predecessor, but there are enough high points to keep this from being a complete waste of time. For those who want more of the same - go ahead, throw down your eight bucks.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Below Average "The astonishing success of the original "MiB" was partly because it was fun, partly because it was unexpected. We'd never seen anything like it, while with "MiBII," we've seen something exactly like it.  The special effects are good, but often pointless. As the movie throws strange aliens at us, we aren't much moved--more like mildly interested.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "Missing is the artful balance between fantasy and human drollery that distinguished 1997's rollicking original, which further benefited from the element of surprise.  As a result, the box office success of this under-90-minute sequel, which seems to be over in a blink, may depend more on a couple of huge opening weekends than word-of-mouth staying power.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Obviously these are some very high opinions. If you're a fan of this type of movie, you won't want to miss "MIB II." Your probability of enjoying it is high.

However, when you see a relatively low number of "Fantastic" opinions and this many "Good" and "Fair" opinions, it indicates a movie people enjoyed very much, but they didn't love it. It will probably do great for a couple of weeks and then drop quickly since it's unlikely to generate great word-of-mouth.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Like the first "Men In Black," this one is light and fun with lots of special effects. It has lots of fun aliens and it's very funny. It's certainly a movie I can highly recommend to fans of this type of movie.

I do believe this time the filmmakers went more for comedy than action. There's still plenty of action, but I believe the "cool" level is a few notches lower than the original. This may simply be due to the fact that this is a sequel. I believe most moviegoers will walk away thinking "That was entertaining, but it wasn't quite as good as the original."

Please keep in mind that this is a simple, silly, far-out story that's built to generate fun and laughs. It's by no means a sophisticated sci-fi film. If you go in expecting fun and entertainment you won't be disappointed.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Agents Jay (Smith) and Kay (Jones) are re-teamed against a sinister seductress who levels the toughest challenge yet to the MIB's stated mission of protecting the earth from the scum of the universe.

In the four years since the agents last teamed to avert an intergalactic disaster, Kay has returned to the comforts of civilian life while Jay has taken over his former partner's role as the most annoyingly efficient employee of the unofficial government agency that regulates all things alien on earth.

While investigating a seemingly routine alien-on-alien crime, Jay uncovers a diabolical plot masterminded by Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle), an evil Kylothian creature who disguises herself as a sexy lingerie model, and her two-headed, half-witted accomplice, Scrad/Charlie (Johnny Knoxville). There is only one person who knows the secret of Serleena's mission on our planet: the former MIB agent Kay who is now a drone in another large government office, the U.S. postal service.
