Men In Black II (2002)
Director: Barry Sonnenfeld

review by Gary Couzens

Five years on from the original Men In Black, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) is 'deneuralised'. He is working for the postal service with no memory of ever ridding the Earth of the scum of the universe. Meanwhile Agent J (Will Smith) continues to fight the fight, but none of his partners quite match up to his old mentor. Sereena (Lara Flynn Boyle), a plant-like alien which for reasons best known to the writers manifests itself as a lingerie model in a very low-cut black dress, is on Earth searching for the Light of Zartha. Only K knows where it is, so he has to be brought out of retirement and 'reneuralised'...
   The first Men In Black made almost $600 million worldwide back in 1997. Five years seems a long time after such a big hit, but at great expense here it is. Smith and Sonnenfeld are certainly in need of a hit, after 1999's dire Wild Wild West. Smith solo had the critical accliam but low box office of Ali, Sonnenfeld the black comedy Big Trouble, which was one of the films shelved in the aftermath of 11 September. So here it is, and the results are middling. There are a number of decent laughs and some imaginative set pieces, but the film labours too long about bringing K back into the plot (he only appears 25 minutes into a film which runs about 80, plus end credits) and by then it's run out of steam and ideas. Lara Flynn Boyle, a late replacement for Famke Janssen, simply isn't bitchy and villainous enough for her role. Ultimately this is a movie that's stolen for most of its first third by Frank the talking dog.
   Men In Black II is a sequel that didn't need to be made. But as it was, it's undemanding with a commendably short running time.
