Just a couple of weeks ago I posted a trailer for “Men in Black II” and said that I somehow missed it this movie altogether. And here I am, holding a copy of “Men in Black II” in my hands. Not that I was looking for it in particular, but I got it via a concerned reader of this blog. Thanks Alex.
The film is a sequel to the first part and is very similar in a lot of ways. It is a light entertainment with a few bits of sci-fi in it. Both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are in it. With quite a few aliens and big guns.
This part however is not as good as the original movie. It tries to be, but it’s not. It is entertaining and funny sometimes. But it’s much weaker in every way – less action, simpler story, etc. I still enjoyed watching it and it also made want to watch the first film again.
Overall, 3 out of 5. Watch it if you have nothing else in your queue, but don’t spend any time looking for this movie. Don’t expect much either, and you’ll probably enjoy it.
