How do you prevent terrorists from unleashing mayhem on the entire world? You don't. This is a job for IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The world's greatest spy returns in the movie event of the year, M:I-2. Top action director John Woo brings his own brand of excitement to the mission that finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) partnering up with the beautiful Nyah Hall (Thandie Newton) to stop renegade agent Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) from releasing a new kind of terror on an unsuspecting world. But before the mission is complete, they'll traverse the globe and have to choose between everything they love and everything they believe.

The 2nd Movie in the Series is the Weakest in my opinion.
You just dont care about the characters as much as you do in parts 1 and 3.
It starts off well with an audacious Mountain Climbing sequence,
has a decent Breaking In sequence in the middle and a very Good Action Sequence at the end.
The rest of it is a bit slow and pointless.
Cast wise Tom Cruise seems a little bored at times. Nice to see Anthony Hopkins in a Big Budget movie.
Rest of the performances are so so.
On the Upside this movie does have the Best Tom Cruise Hairstyle in the series and the Best Poster. LOL

 3rd in Trilogy

This was the long awaited sequel following the excellent introduction and Mission:Impossible to the film world. Yet it disappointed many, including me, when looking back now that the trilogy has been completed. There is the distinct Impossible brand attached throughout, but the gung-ho action scenes and poor storyline doesn't match its predecessor and the thrilling 'Noc List' story of M:I. A much bigger budget film with more than enough to interest die hard IMF fans, but doesn't cut it as a classic Mission Impossible film.

 THIS MISSION, SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, IS AVERAGE !

John Woo directed the weakest addition to the trilogy. The film is very slick, but the plot is just paper thin and nothing much happens for the first hour. Some of the scenes are a direct repeat of the first film. But when the action comes it is very good and some of the scenes are typical of the Woo style of Ballet vs bullets. The only problem is there is too much matrix style fighting and this distacts from the film as you know it's just not physially possible. Also Woo's trade mark white doves are every where. Not a bad movie but not in the same class as the other two. A brain dead popcorn movie !

In 1996 the first MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE blew the audience away. What a fantastic agent movie. But how, in the name of the freakin' lord, can ANY director/writer miss that much as they did with M:I-2? The good story and tricky agent conspiracy has been replaced with smart looking action, crazy stunts, too many smart one liners and no personality? Tom Cruise has changed from a serious agent to a smart bad ass agent, who only shows "I can kick some ass" and "I can kick some more ass". The action is looking good, but it has no personality; something happens all the time, and nothing happens.

M:I-2 is a MAJOR disappointment comparing to Brian De Palmes GREAT first film. But if you love a film containing a non-existing story, smart camera work, one liners, wild stunts, then I recommend M:I-2, but as you can read, it all happens with no soul and personality and the film is forgotten as soon as it ends (thank God)
