Mission: Impossible 2

 

USA 2000, 123 minutes
Dir. John Woo
Rating: [M]
Genres: Action/Adventure / Spy

 

Aroview: Submerging all traces of the original series, Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt, whose mission it is to keep a deadly synthetic virus out of the hands of psychotic megalomaniac, Dougray Scott.

Though more coherent than the first one, the John Woo trademarks (slo-mo, fetishistic violence, unfeasible stunts, quaint romanticism) here play more like a clone of a Woo movie rather than the genuine article. Like a poor-man's FACE/OFF, it trades on a gimmick that allows good and evil to chop and change 'faces' - Scooby-Doo style. Exotic extras include the Sydney Harbour and posh babe, Thandie Newton.
