Consensus: Lacking the freshness of the first movie, MIB 2 recycles elements from its predecessor with mixed results.

Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader

The down-home satire of how we cope with cultural difference has evaporated, replaced by jazzy effects that wear out their welcome by the halfway mark.

A mixed bag of a comedy that can't really be described as out of this world.

It can't be said enough how much Smith's charisma and Jones' deadpan delivery almost save this movie and it's to their credit that this movie isn't as bad as it should be.

The movie's smart, funny and fairly forgettable.

If the first Men in Black was money, the second is small change. But it still jingles in the pocket. It's fun lite.

Peter Canavese
Groucho Reviews

In the absence of the first film's rhythm, wit, and novelty, it's a typically lazy, diminishing-returns sequel.

Men in Black 2 might be a retread of the first one, but I still say it's worth seeing. The stars are great in this.

"Men in Black II" never matched the first film's perfect blend of action, comedy, and sci-fi elements.

Not even close to being as fresh as the original "Men in Black" film, this sequel takes the story of the first one, rehashes it and sends it 5 years… More

'Men in Black II' feels a lot less original compared to its original. This could have been a new, clever chapter for both Kay and Jay. Instead, it… More

A useless and unnecessary sequel that blatantly recycles elements from the first movie. The jokes and gags from the first one are repeated, except, it is not… More
