Men In Black II (2003)


“We are who we are… even if we sometimes forget it. ” – K

Number of Times Seen – 1 (14 Feb 2022)

Brief Synopsis – J and K are back as they need to find a way to uncover a mystery from decades earlier that is locked in K’s memory.

My Take on it – This is actually the first time that I saw this movie because I never really had much interest in seeing what it wa sall about.

Unfortunately, I was right to wait nearly two decades to watch it because it is the weakest of the trilogy featuring Smith and Jones.

The story is a bit to bland and even with Barry Sonnefeld at the helm again, something feels off.

The characters don;t feel as fleshed out as they do in the other films in the trilogy and there is definitely something ‘off’ the entire time that takes away from the feel of the story seeming more unique.

Once again they do a nice job using pop culture references and conspiracy theories to add to the humor of things, but overall, something just doesn’t work well enough in the way that this story plays out.

Even the bad guys, don’t feel menacing or threatening enough to help make this more engaging and entertaining to watch unfold which is quiet a shame because they have so much more potential here that just isn’t realized.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When J and K are watching the Light of Zartha video in Newton’s room, J comments on the corny video, saying “Looks like Spielberg’s work.” It’s a light-hearted jab at executive producer Steven Spielberg. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
