Men in Black II
$ 441 Million
To call it a popcorn movie seems almost an insult to the salty, caloric butter rush of great popcorn.
Some sequels continue a story.Others repeat it.

MIB II is so aware of itself as vaudeville spectacle that a pre-credit encore is inevitable.
Still and all, it's a welcome and nicely goofy bit of sci-fi froth with the occasional hint of genuine comic smarts.

The new movie does something rare that all sequels should do.

Simply put, the effort doesn't feel as fresh or innovative as its predecessor.
If you liked the first film, then you'll like the sequel, but it's neither as exciting nor as out-and-out funny as it should be.
The movie is simply a recycled version of the original, losing the majority of the humor and all the originality of that film.

The one truly bright spot is the closing shot.If that is any hint of where Sonnenfeld is headed, then the future of the MIB story is in good hands.
Everything about this film feels effortless, from the simplistic storyline to the easy energy of the performances.

That's symptomatic of a film that is fun, has two good luggage-locker gags, but is definitely not a classic.
This is a truly tepid sequel to an already overblown movie; you can pass this in the video store and not feel like an alien.
We want action!.And we get it all - it just lacks spark.
As in it's not something that was intended to be adopted and practiced by adults.
