In this visually stunning sequel to the 1996 film, Ethan Hunt tracks a rogue IMF agent Ambrose (Scott), who threatens to release deadly virus on Sydney, Australia and corner the market on the cure. Ambrose's ex-girlfriend Nyah (Newton), a jewel theif, is recruited by Hunt to spy on Ambrose from inside. Of course Nyah and Hunt fall in love (the weakest element of the movie, by the way). Director Woo brings his trademark balletic style to the action, although it seems to take a while to actually get to it. The stunts and fights, while completely preposterous, are beautifully done. The plot is a lot less convoluted than the first 'Mission,' which is either good or bad, depending on how you feel about the original.

Mission: Impossible 2
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

Mission Impossible part 2 is really good. I loved the first Mission Impossible, but I think part two was still entertaining. Do I think it's better than the first one? No, I don't think any Mission Impossible movie could be better than part one, but part two is still good. If you loved part one, then you'll enjoy part two. I felt that part two was a bit dragged out in some parts, but there was still a lot of action and much entertainment. Tom Cruise, yet again, does another fantastic job acting. I recommend this movie to viewers who are into action movies.
