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.

My journey ahead of the Blu-ray/DVD release of 5th in the series continues -
'Tom Cruise' revisits the role of M.I.F Agent 'Ethan Hunt' in the second of the Mission-Movie-Series.
Stepping away from the M.I.F as he'd intended is not as easy as he thought as he is offered a choice - Your Mission
Should You Choose To Accept It -
This time 'Ethan' (Tom Cruise) partnered by 'Nyah Hall' (Thandie Newton) a master-thief who's skills he'll need they
are on the trail of a rogue agent 'Sean Ambrose' (Dougary Scott) who has acquired a deadly virus stolen from a bio-
chemist. a fact that 'Ethan' is yet to learn of, if the virus falls into the wrong hands it could have deadly consequences
for an unsuspecting World.......failure on the mission is not an option.
Again 'Ethan' is ably assisted by computer and technical whiz 'Luther Stickell' (Ving Rhames)
This again a suspense filled roller-coaster-ride with some superb action sequences and jaw-dropping stunts, 'Cruise'
quite simply electric in the role of special-agent 'Ethan Hunt' along with a suitably credible villain role for 'Dougary
Scott) also among the cast list 'Anthony Hopkins' as mission-commander 'Swanbeck'
Another very entertaining instalment in the Mission Impossible Movie-Series,

Special Features -
Commentary by Director John Wood
Behind the Mission
Mission - Incredible
Impossible Shots
I Disappear - Metallica
Alternate Title Sequence
Excellence in Film - Cruise
Generation - Cruise

Ethan Hunt has been sent on a mission to destroy a genetically created disease called 'Chimera'.

He must also contest with a gang of terrorists headed by a former IMF agent who has already managed to steal the cure, and now needs 'Chimera' to complete their grand plan of infecting the whole world.

In order to infiltrate and locate the terrorist group, he relies on the help of thief Nyah, with whom he quickly develops an interest in.

Time is not only running out for Hunt to find and destroy 'Chimera' before the terrorists get their hands on it, but he must also find the cure, so as to save his love interest who has already become infected by the disease from a terrible and rapid death.....

John Woo is a wonderful director. His pre Hollywood movies are visually stunning and almost poetic with their action scenes, and Face/Off is arguably one of the most bonkers action movies that Hollywood has churned out in the last twenty years.

So it comes as a complete surprise when this movie, despite the high concept, Cruises star power, and franchise name reaches its peak, when Cruise reaches his peak when climbing.

It's completely incoherent, allegedly Woos cut clocked in at over three hours, but hey, the studio wanted the money, knew people would see it, and despite the nonsense, it's make bucketloads of money, because the trailer looked brilliant, and Woo was a huge deal then.

So what we get is, the obligatory stunt that hinders each movie,man impressive last twenty minutes, but almost ninety minutes of waffle, Scott chewing scenery, and Cruise with his best Zoolander pose in slow motion.

It's all eye candy, and really nothing else, Hopkins shows up for a bit of plot explanation, Newton is just there to justify Cruises hatred for Scott, and Rhames comes back for a little comic relief.

It beggars belief that the franchise continued after this mess, but rest assured the film went from strength to strength after this.

So all in all, it's just a two hour advertisement for Loreal shampoo featuring Cruise.

Why? Because he's worth it....

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 7 November 2016
Not a scratch on the first one, but probably not the worst episode in the franchise, a bit too overly stylized. There are a couple of nice sequences, the initial car chase sequence and the face/mask swapping bit standing out most for me.

If by some chance you haven't seen this one yet, it's worth a watch... once, but probably does not warrant repeated viewings!
