I was pumped to see this movie! MIB2 was on my list of top three anticipated films for this year. I was even in New York last summer in front of Ben's Pizza to watch a Jones/Smith scene being filmed . . .so I am a true fan. But this movie was bad.

Forking out only matinee bucks, I attended the movie on DAY 1 expecting to be entertained and laughing my butt off like MIB One. I wasn't and I didn't.

The only way to describe this movie is that whomever edited the thing, wasn't uncomfortable with stunned silence and pregnant pauses. There were weird spaces of nothing that made me uncomfortable. The villan was only slightly scary, and basically did nothing but wear really bright red lipstick and protrude digitalized effects that contributed nothing to the character. Nothing alien. Nothing 'Edgar-ish' like MIB1. Slight nods of humor were there, I admit, but I had to dig DEEP to find the laughs. The plot was interesting but fell feebly to the wayside with cheesy effects and did I mention BAD EDITING?

Here's a rule to live by, Hollywood: "If it isn't a great story, it won't be a great movie!" And I think the expectation is to actually TAKE OUT the bad bits. The parts that don't work - they should go. Just a tip. I was hoping, my friends.
