In due time the second part was the first film about People in Black for which I learned through active advertising on TV. To which only tricks nor have been used by the advertisers in order to attract viewers! And what a shame that the second part deserved such PR is not as much as first,

What the continuation of hopeless promises to keep up with the first part declares to have the quality of the special effects, which seem to have returned to a decade ago, and not stepped forward with a time five years. What a three-dimensional movie, filmed for  $ 140 million?! Where reliability, which was impressed by the first film? However, it is more flowers. Berries appear later. And the process will be slow and very painful.

Apart from the fact that the film is sometimes slipping into Frank thrash with jokes the genitals, in it has no smell the philosophy that was the first part. Why think about that we all — only sand grains in a great space-time, which for someone may be just the bulb for the Amateur game? Much better to sit in front of a screen a noisy group and together start to degrade, hammering his head astounding humor and absolutely shameless mockery of predecessor, which was nothing sarcastic. Here, in the sequel, filmed, incidentally, the same Director, even the beloved main characters turn into some brash and rude bullies who abuse their position. This those characters that the world is saved to the first part? In this time agent Jay more like the small mischief than complex important for the whole world business. Did not surprised if at some point the agent MIB began to do harm to ordinary people, blurring in future memory to cover his tracks. But if we imagine that he wanted and the center of the organization to capture, then scary to think what it could get our planet.

The presence GIPSA pug Frank for the first time is good, but then upsets from understanding that they were added to a script for fun. In other words, to create more absurd and weak jokes. However, what wonder if even Tommy Lee Jones will Smith not save this film with their participation? Lara Flynn Boyle, who plays the main villain, not go in comparison with a giant cockroach the first part, and Rip torn, who plays zed all the time now is somewhere in the sidelines, if he is confused once again to get the camera lens. The only one who this time somehow happy, it's johnny Knoxville, but and only through its features, typical of its species.

With great regret we have to admit that is the second part of "Men in Black" messed up literally everything good that was the first movie. Apparently, the desire to create something of quality from the Director is no more.

The finale of the first "Men in black" does not meant to continue, yeah and make it initially, no one going — there was no guarantee that the film will pay off. But, contrary to all expectations, the film has collected in world hire more than 589 million. Such indicators have forced producers to immediately think about the production of the sequel.

From the first seconds of screen time it is clear that the scenario here is especially not bother. The creators took a pattern of the first film and slightly altered. Again there is a villain who wants and is going to capture the whole of the universe. And helping him. this is a very useful artifact. Well, MIB act in the role of a kind of supermen, whose task — save the universe from the attack of alien invaders. In other words, only changed the mask: instead of the charismatic alien beetle we saw charming and sexy Zerlina, and "the galaxy on Orion's belt" has replaced the ancient God — the light of Zartha.

In fact, the script — the main claim to this film. It seems that the creators were intentionally going to release the film as possible, so the script is like written for five minutes on the knee. In what was the meaning of generalizatio agent K if the film the memories of him to return back? As the wife could leave him, if I waited for the moment when he quit coma, 35 years?! Not mention about the frankly moronic and idiotic ending, at all fronts, losing the brilliant finale of the first film. A new antagonist just no! Lara Flynn Boyle is just disgusting in the way Serleena and is not comparison "beetle in the guise of Edgar" from the first part.

Now, about good. Humor — he remained on the last part — crazy funny and manifesting more often now, Tommy Lee Jones wil Smith all the beautiful and dog in the name Frank, for some time acting in the role of partner, Jay, just stunning! As regrettable, but the pros on this end.

"Men in black 2" — good fantastic Comedy. In which the however, a lot of shortcomings. Watch or none — decide for yourself, but better have a look at the original 1997 and feel the difference.

This happens rarely. The first part, as a rule, better than its continuation. And the movie, unfortunately, adheres to this tradition.

No, I'm not bet — the film surpassed its predecessor in the special effects. Became a little more humor that clear from the first frame. I mean that fun ride will Smith on the giant worm in the subway. As said: "The same the planet, those same colors, new weapons, new scum."

Tommy Lee John Smith — brilliant (for those movies, of course) Duo. Both play to it claims to be is not be. Claims have me about the writers.

Depart from their usual narrative style and will be very brief. Not matter that between the first and second film took almost five years, I was not feeling that it was invented in a hurry. No matter thought out scenes, came up with a bunch of new characters with which the characters are quite quickly dealt. Once the alien hunts for another treasure of the Galaxy.

I agree to the films of this genre, and it is not necessary to come up with something special. There is a good — people have a bad — a bunch of aliens, power-hungry, there is a balance to the galaxy in General. What get the People in Black.

Barry Sonnenfeld once said about of the third part. Remains hopes that she will be worse, but it is possible (although I doubt) better than the previous. Conclusion: the sequel is not is superior to the original, but not too inferior to him.
