M:I 2 definitely delivers as far as hard-core action, but some elements were excessive to the point of being cartoonish.

Ethan Hunt is back with another theoretically impossible mission. Tom Cruise once again delivered at least a satisfactory performance, along with all other actors involved, but John Woo's direction was a little bit excessive at some points. I fail to see what made it necessary for Hunt to be riding his motorcycle on the front wheel while firing at an oncoming car. Or how about that gun that was lying in the sand toward the end of the film? Was that a little too unrealistic, or was it just me?

The story was good, the acting was convincing enough, and the action sequences were well put together, but they were just too much. One of the other things that really saved this film from action-packed obscurity was some very clever and well placed dialogue, particularly on the part of Ving Rhames, back once again as Luther Stickell ("Ethan! Nyah is in the building! Do you copy!")

Despite M:I 2's shortcoming's, it will undoubtedly be very satisfying to the true action fan. It has explosions, gun fights, car chases, lethal viruses, Jackie Chan style fight scenes, and even a hint of a few WWF moves in those fights. Mission: Impossible 2 is a good action film. I was not tremendously impressed, but I also didn't feel like I had just wasted two hours. Go watch the movie, just don't expect it to be the phenomenal gift from the action movie gods that it was made out to be.

Mission: Impossibly Cheesy

So, after seeing the adrenaline-pumped trailer for MI Fallout I decided to go to the franchise roots and finally see the original three films. And while the first one was already cheesy enough, this movie is simply on another level.

Since MI2 is old news now, and probably no one will ever read this anyway, I'll just list some of the more ridiculous moments I remember:

  • Implausible love line and how creepy Cruise is when he "seduces" the discount Zoe Saldana. Also how totally accidentally her perky tits are accentuated in half the shots. Sorry.


  • The uncomfortably stereotypical Aussie dude in Ethan's team.


  • Constant dramatic zoom-ins on the actors' faces.


  • Constant dramatic slo-mo shots.


  • Tom Cruise doing backflips and other Wrestlemania-style moves.


  • Tom Cruise sliding on the concrete road while holding onto a bike.


  • "That punk put a whole in my Versace".


  • How stupid it is that instead of calling in reinforcements to take down the Scottish villain, Ethan works with just 2 guys and keeps a low profile for some reason.


  • How stupid it is that destroying the virus samples solves anything, like there the company has no data to reconstruct it at will.


  • How stupid it is that Ethan apparently always carries a mask of himself and of the Blonde villain guy, as well as his voice modulator, in case he needs to do a totally unforeseeable switch-up in a critical moment.


  • The beginning says "music by Hans Zimmer", but the music, just like everything else, is also pure trash.

Way too serious

I'll make this short. If the movie was what the last 25 minutes are, it would be perfect (in a weird way). But sadly, it is not.

I think that the main problem of MI2 is that it take itself too serious, like, two guys jump from their bikes and collide with each other IN THE F# AIR, but you also are supposed to be worried about a global virus that will destroy the world. And you just don't buy it.

But there are also a lot of shitty things here, the romance between Ethan and Nyah happened so fast, the guy is literally risking his life for her, after one night (or less).

The soundtrack is sometimes a real mess, you go to some mexican type of music in some scenes (with no-sense at all) to some heavy metal type of music in another one. And it just don't fit for the majority of the time.

And, ok, we have to talk about the slow-mo, look, Matrix is fantastic, amazing, but the bunch of crap that came after it is surreal. It seems like the director just saw Matrix and thought "we have to put more slow-mo in the movie! It will be great!". But, well... no. A lot of scenes you can notice that they were clearly shoot with normal cameras, and slowled in pos.

Tom Cruise is amazing in the film when the subject is action scenes. The guy let they hold a KNIFE above his eyes! The dude is a monster, really. He's stunt's are by far the best thing in the whole movie.

Well, in short, Mission: Impossible II it's really not a great film (in fact, it's bad), but the last 30 minutes of it are very watchable (you can search for it on YT if you really want to see), the rest of it is almost everything just boring, way over the top, but yet, very serious about it's crazy plot.
