3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing film but hopefully a good DVD 5 Nov 2000
By SKDream
Format:DVD
After the first Brian DePalma MI film which combined a complex story, solid performances and tense action set pieces to brilliant effect, it seemed things could only get better when it was announced that action master John Woo would make the sequel.
Woo directed some of the finest action films of all time (Hard Boiled, The Killer) and fresh from his success with the superb Face/Off the idea of his take on Mission Impossible was irresistable.
However the result fell far short of the first film and Woo's earlier classics.The story was dull, the action was strangely unengaging and the the acting average (espacially the bad guy).
The strangest part is that the makers seem to have forgotten that this was a sequel to another film and so all of a sudden Tom Cruise is a happy smilling wise cracking joker who can do crazy (and completly unnesscary) kung fu moves, and although he has a team they dont do much (I though the Mission Impossible IMF was supposed to be a team??)
And to top it off all of John Woo's usual ideas (slo mo, doves, catching guns mid air etc)that make his films good are overused to the point that it looks like its meant to be a joke.
The Region 1(US) version has some great extras:
• Commentary by director John Woo • 15-minute "Behind the Mission" exclusive cast and crew interviews • Five-minute "Mission Incredible" stunts featurette "Impossible Shots" • Exclusive interviews with John Woo, Tom Cruise, stunt coordinator Brian Smrz and others • Metallica's music video of "I Disappear" • Alternate title sequence • MTV Movie Awards show parody, "Mission Improbable" with Tom Cruise, Ben Stiller and John Woo. • Widescreen anamorphic format
Paramount will most probably keep the UK version the same. The DVD is good but film isnt as good as it should have been ...still better than James Bond anyday ;)

The sequel to 1996's box office hit is a predictably enjoyable film.
The film's plot is, thankfully, much less complicated than the first film, which makes it easy to follow. The tone of the film is set stylishly with the much loved M:I genre, Tom Cruise being told he has a new mission while in the middle of a desert.
The plot has an original idea, but one that is drummed into viewers' heads constantly throughout the film, to the point of grating. It also drags on for far too long. Though the various plot twists just about cover it, the chase and fight between Hawke and Scott's character is hard to enjoy fully because it is too long, and we have already seen endless similar action. The sensual scenes between Scott and Newton are never really effective because they don't go anywhere.
The characters are interesting enough, but again, nothing extraordinary, and the use of masks becomes increasingly ludicrous as the agents begin donning masks that they could not possibly have had.
On the other hand, the movie's secret agent genre is deliciously enjoyable, and promotes a sort of futuristic James Bond feel to it.
The film itself is satisfactory, with many positive features, but it does have too much unneccessary padding and is often completely unrealistic. It may be good, but not half as good as the original.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mission: Impossible II 13 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
Polished, stylish and slick are all adjectives you could use to describe Mission Impossible II, but at the end of the day strip away all the gleam and gloss and designer costumes, you've basically got a James Bond film with American accents.
That's not to say the film isn't good. As I say it is extremely professionally executed. The scenes and sets are visually stunning, whether it's Tom Cruise hanging from finger tips from the mountains, or the helicopter fly pasts over Sydney Harbour or even the sultry Latin heat of Seville you really can't criticise the imagery.
Likewise you have to respect the thrilling stunts. Unbelievable and implausible they maybe, but they do work and ensure an edge of your seat ride. The gadgets and gizmos and similarly fantastic but are also great fun even though they open more holes in the plot than provide explanations to story development.
The performances are good, Cruise proves he can play the all action hero as well as anyone else and at least his winning smile is more attractive than the grimaces of most the bunch of all-action actors. I found Thandie Newton slightly too underdeveloped to be a credible female interest character, but I did think the chemistry between her and Cruise worked well. Dougray Scott and Richard Roxburgh make suitable baddies, although the less said about the dodgy accents the better, and it's always great to see Anthony Hopkins whatever the role.
So if all this is so good why have I only given it three stars? Well basically, we've seen it all before, there's no real new hook to grab the viewer and to be quite frank, some of the stunt sequences simply go on too long.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good action scenes, but appalling dialogue. 8 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
After thoroughly enjoying the first MI, with it's complicated plot and nice twists, I was quite looking forward to this sequel. It turned out to be a big disappointment. The action scenes were impressive, with suitably large explosions and fast-moving vehicles, but the dialogue was cliche'd and badly written. I found myself laughing at the parts that were supposed to be romantic or touching, just because the dialogue sounded as if it had been written by a 12-year old.
The plot twists were also entirely obvious before they happened, as well as being stolen from the first film. Instead of coming up with original twists the same one is used over and over again, which quickly becomes boring and predictable.
I wouldn't buy this DVD if I were you - rent it for the action sequences by all means, but don't waste your money.
