Synopsis


Mission: Impossible II
Director John Woo brings Hong Kong-style martial arts action to this comic book-flavored sequel that eschews the complicated plot and political maneuverings of its predecessor in favor of pure, adrenaline-charged thrills. Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt, an operative for the top-secret government agency IMF (Impossible Missions Force). Fellow agent Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) has gone rogue, stealing a sample of a deadly synthetic virus named Chimera that could rapidly wipe out the world's population. Ambrose's plan is to sell Chimera to the highest bidder in exchange for shares of stock in the winner's company. Summoned by the new IMF chief (Anthony Hopkins in an uncredited cameo role), Ethan is assigned to recruit the help of Ambrose's former lover Nyah Nordoff-Hall (Thandie Newton), a gorgeous woman who left Ambrose broken-hearted and who may be able to quickly regain his confidence. Once he meets and spends a night with Nyah, however, Ethan is smitten, and now must both capture Ambrose and keep Nyah alive as she infiltrates a nest of vipers. Sophisticated disguises, gun battles, and high-speed chases are the order of the day, very much in the James Bond mold. Mission: Impossible 2 is based on a story by Star Trek: The Next Generation writers Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga, with a script polish by Robert Towne. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    M:I 2 is probably the worst of the series but Best Buy included the movie ticket (Up to $8) to go see M:I: Rogue Nation and that was worth the cost. If I am going to see the new movie anyway, I might as well spend the money and get two movies. The quality of the product is good and I would recommend it to someone looking for a needlessly overdone action movie with a weak storyline. Worth it with the movie ticket!

    Luther may be the only continuity in the sequel, but it's such a blast from start to finish. The 4K transfer is exactly what fans needed - I don't remember it looking anywhere near as vibrant as it does here. The lossless audio is also leaps and bounds of an improvement.

    The movie was exciting and action packed. Some of the themes from the original Mission Impossible TV show were carried over to this film. Tom Cruise is a great actor and was excellent in this film. Lots of technology. The plot was interesting and high tech. The only unbelievable thing was one man (Cruise) taking on all of the bad guys mostly by himself.

    I'm not a huge fan of Tom Cruise but the MI series sans the first one (they needlessly destroyed the character of Jim Phelps and that's why Peter Graves declined to play his well known character.) have been pretty good. This second one and every one thereafter have been getting better and better. Its worth a buy in my opinion.

    This movie was okay despite director John Woo's tendency to almost ruin it with overly extended slowmotion shots designed to make Tom Cruise look cool. Instead, these shots almost created a type of parody of hair blowing "I think I'm sexy" scenes that glorified violence, spoofed action sequences and interrupted the plot.

    Maybe good once

    Mission Impossible 2 loses touch with it's predecessor and simply becomes another failed attempt to rip of the James Bond formula. There are a few interesting action scenes so you might want to see it once, but there is no sense in buying this because it is not worth seeing more than that.

    Not as good as the first MI movie

    MI:2 is not as good as the first one. They tried to turn it into too much of a Kung-Fu movie and abuse the slow motion fight scenes. Also this Blu-ray has a incredibly grainy picture. It is fairly noticable even sitting back away from the TV. The grain can be distracting at times.

    Yet another mission impossible that proves that Tom Cruise will do his own stunts to make a movie, no matter how dangerous or crazy! But that's what makes the movie great. I love the action, the drama, and the special features. Great on DVD, better on blu- ray
