"I consider this and the sequel a one long movie. THe first one was despised by Brazilian critics and i can see why but the second one gets everything into a full circle. Trainee officer: Men in black what is it that you do? Student: I do things that scare even Satan himself! Trainee officer: Men in black what is your mission? Student: Get into the slam and leave corpses on the ground! "
