Synopsis


Men in Black II
Otherworldly villains are on the loose again, and it's up to Earth's interstellar police force to bring them to justice in this sequel to the sci-fi comedy blockbuster Men in Black. Agent Jay (Will Smith) has become a high-ranking member of the Men in Black, the secret government task force designed to deal with unruly visitors from other worlds, while his former cohort, Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), had his memory wiped clean and now lives a simple but contented life as a mailman. However, an especially nasty alien threat has reared its not-so-ugly head; Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle) is a shape-shifting Kylothian alien who is in pursuit of another escaped visitor who holds the key to powers that would allow her to destroy the world. Making Serleena all the more dangerous is the fact she's taken on the appearance of a lingerie model, making her irresistible to most men. When the rampaging Serleena takes control of the MIB offices, Jay is forced to turn to the only man who can help him save the world -- the former Agent Kay. After restoring Kay's memory, the two remaining Men in Black set out to conquer Serleena with a motley band of friendly aliens, including a handful of worm creatures and a talking dog named Frank (voice of Tim Blaney). Jay, meanwhile, has his head turned by Laura (Rosario Dawson), an attractive waitress who was an unwitting witness to an alien attack. Men in Black 2 also features Rip Torn, Tony Shalhoub, David Cross, Patrick Warburton, and Johnny Knoxville. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    A SciFi & Comedy Winner

    I bought both BluRay versions of Men In Black 1 & 2 because each offered a free ticket to see MIB 3 (a $20 savings). Essentially the offset cost for each was a BluRay disc for about $3. Since I already owned the DVD versions of both films, which by the way are presented in true widescreen format (a personal preference), it's just another continuuing upgrade to my movie collection (I assemble my own DVD/BluRay Combi-Packs). Aside from offering the UltraViolet download feature instead of a digital-copy disc, the movie is presented in 5.1 Surround just like the original DVD. At least Disney BluRays attempt to upgrade their movie makeovers to 7.1 Surround. Sony, Paramount and Universal haven't quite caught on yet. And, YES, the Men In Black 3 film was hillarious and no doubt I'll purchase the combi-pack when it is released this September!

    OK, but not great.

    Part of what made MIB I so great was having a terrible and merciless villain and an impending sense of doom. Seeing Agent J being edgy and slightly afraid while seeing Agent K going about like any other day was constantly entertaining. However in MIB II they just go way to overboard in the impending doom, but its ok cause Agent K is going to save the day vibe. We all get that Agent K is a cool customer. But the villains in MIB II are a joke upon themselves, and how swiftly and how neatly everything gets tied up is just ridiculous. The locker scene, and the final scene were just stupidity personified. My .02 cents.

    A good movie that wasn't as kiddish as the first one. The combo of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones keeps the laughs going on throughout the movie. The best scene of the movie would probably be the postal office, with Kay finding out that he was in MIB. If you like the first one, I recommend this one. And even if you didn't like the first one, you might like this one anyway

    MIB is a world of its own. ALIENS EVERYWHERE THEY EVEN DELIVER YOUR PIZZA ! Now comes the sexiest Lara Flynn Boyle, but deadly. Add WILL SMITH & TOMMY LEE JONES , plus gadgets, guns , laughs and it's a good night at the movies. Love connection also included.

    MIB 2 is the continuation of Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) battling an alien that's trying to find an object hidden by Agent K. The only problem is that Agent J has to recover Agent K who was de-neutralized by him in the last movie.

    Sony released this with Men in Black II on the same day for blu-ray. The movie looks good. Audio and Video are very good for an older film. Jones and Smith are great together, and without comparing to first film, this one is very good.

    This is pretty much the same as the re-release of Men in Black 1. It comes with a Digital HD redemption code. Much cheaper than buying the digital HD copy outright, plus you get a tangible copy of the film.

    Very funny movie. Loved all three movies, watch them over and over again and even when they are on any station on the TV that I have just flipped to, even if it is in the middle of the movie. The first was the best though.
