While investigating a seemingly routine crime, Jay uncovers a diabolical plot masterminded by Serleena, an evil Kylothian monster who disguises herself as a sexy lingerie model. When Serleena takes the entire MIB building hostage, there is only one person left Jay can turn to—his former MIB partner who is now a drone in another large government office, the U.S. postal service.
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.
PROFANITY: Only a couple dozen mild profanities. SEX/NUDITY: A woman in bra and panties is shown in non-sexual scene. VIOLENCE: Cartoon type violence played for laughs. Nothing graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: Lots of action throughout. COMEDY: Lots of humor, similar to the first one.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
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.
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.
