"Men In Black II" Cinema Synopsis:
K (Tommy Lee Jones) and J (Will Smith) reunite to provide our best, last and only line of defense against a sinister seductress who levels the toughest challenge yet to the MIBs untarnished mission statement: protecting the earth from the scum of the universe. It's been four years since the alien-seeking agents averted an intergalactic disaster of epic proportions. K has since returned to the comforts of civilian life while J continues to work for the Men In Black, the highly funded yet unofficial government agency that regulates all things alien on earth. While investigating a seemingly routine crime, J uncovers a diabolical plot masterminded by Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle), 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 J can turn to - his former MIB partner who is now a drone in another large government office, the U.S. postal service. Its a race against the clock as J must convince K - who not only has absolutely no memory of his time spent with the Men In Black, but is also the only living person left with the expertise to save the galaxy-to reunite with the MIB before the earth submits to ultimate destruction
"Men In Black II" Tony's Comments:
"Men In Black II", the big budget sequel ($97 million) to the original 1997 smash hit has its moments but struggles to match the originality of the first film. "Men In Black II" still has the eye-popping special effects, the weird and wonderful assortment of aliens, and plenty of laughs to keep most viewers entertained but unfortunately the film offers nothing new. It is interesting to note that the film originally featured a scene of UFO's at the World Trade Center. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are still in fine form but at a running time of 88 minutes the film breezes bye like a cool wind leaving the viewer wanting a more involving ending. Nevertheless, fans of the original should still get a kick out of this one. Also, look out for pop star Michael Jackson in a small cameo role.
