This review of MIIB is spoiler-free!
The chemistry of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will never not be entertaining — their collective sense of contrasting comedy is the one notable merit that keeps MIIB watchable.
The remaining majority of this bland, haphazard sequel is saturated with cringeworthy dialogue, sexist stereotypes, and a tour-de-force of the overbearingly fake and flat CGI of the early 2000s. Men in Black was a cleverly over-the-top sendup of retro sci-fi, but MIIB never ascends past its oafish attempts at replicating its predecessor’s intelligent wit.
It’s almost impressive how consistently and completely MIIB undermines itself.
