Our Score
While a sequel to 1997's hit Men in Black was a financial inevitability, its quality was less easily guaranteed. Director Barry Sonnenfeld returned with smart-suited alien immigration agents Jay (Will Smith) and Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), and again they're saving the planet. This time, however, it's super sexy Lara Flynn Boyle who's causing the cosmic chaos as evil alien queen Serleena and though her performance lacks depth and menace, fans won't mind - there are enough flashy special effects, colourful alien life and sharp humour here to keep them happy. But, despite Smith and Jones's witty bantering and bickering, you can't help feeling that this is the least everyone concerned could have done.

Summary

Agent J investigates the unauthorised landing of a spacecraft and discovers a malevolent alien disguised as a lingerie model is on the verge of destroying humanity. His only hope of stopping her diabolical plot is to restore the memory of his retired partner K - but his former mentor takes more than a little convincing. Sci-fi comedy sequel, directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Rosario Dawson, Lara Flynn Boyle, Johnny Knoxville, Rip Torn and Tony Shalhoub.
