One of the best rated and most watched movies of its time, Men in Black II (2002), touches down on many of the great theories of aliens and how they affect our planet. With an all star cast this movie ended up becoming a major staple in the movie industry. Actors such as Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Rip Torn, Lara Flynn Boyle, and Johnny Knoxville, it is no secret why this hilarious and action packed movie is still popular.
The movies starts out where the first one left off as Agent J (Will Smith) is sitting in his office monitoring the different things going on with the world and its alien inhabitants. As he is doing this he is alerted that an invasion is in fact taking place near New York. Enter Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle) as the top enemy in the movie. She is seeking an ancient artifact only know to the Men in Black as The Light of Zartha. Unfortunately for the Men in Black they must turn to the expert services of Tommy Lee Jones who was previously sent into a type of retirement after a lifetime of servitude in trying to save the planet. Left up to Will Smith, the movie follows his trek trying to locate and convince Agent K that he is indeed part of a top secret unit, and to have him try to aid in saving the world.
This movie follows the storyline of the Men in Black perfect and shows great cinematography and special effect. One of the best things about the movie that many people remember are the special groups of aliens from the first movie who grabbed the heartstrings of many people. However, this movie is more action packed than the first one, although it is great for children to watch. This movie is great for families, couples, or just a group of people looking to watch a great movie that will give you constant laughs.
Barry Sonnenfeld's "Men In Black III" has a list of troubles so long that it could reach another planet: the schedule was planned so that the first act would be shot in November, then a hiatus would follow allowing the writing team to finish the script (yes, they shot the first act with an unfinished script), then the rest of production would follow. It's no small wonder that now there are debates over the script and production has slowed to a halt. You can now add one more problem to the "MIB 3" list of woes: Alec Baldwin, who was to play the head of MIB in 1969 where Will Smith's character travels back in time (yeah, it's a time-travel script), has left the production.
