Mission: Impossible II (2000) Movie Review- Old Movie Reviews
Mission Impossible 5 is releasing sooner and sooner, so here is my next Old Movie Review for Mission: Impossible II. Chris Day and I originally were supposed to review this on Chris’ channel, but due to various problems that arose, I had to post my own review on my channel. Chris, however, will be back for our joint review of Mission: Impossible 3 and Ghost Protocol. Mission: Impossible II was released in 2000 an John Woo took over the director’s chair. This time around, it’s up to IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) to stop the outbreak of a deadly virus called Chimera as rogue agent Ambrose (Dougray Scott) attempts to release it into the public for diabolical purposes. Ethan joins forces with cat burglar Naya (Thandie Newton) and good pal Luther (Ving Rhames) to take down Ambrose. Mission: Impossible II, although a solid sequel and a showcase for much better action as opposed to the first film, but is still not as iconic or thrilling. What did you guys think of the sequel?
MY OVERALL RATING: 8.75/10 or B+
M:I 2 is a solidly entertaining sequel to a very smart and thrilling original film in the 96′ Mission Impossible. The film may have a few weak relationships with it’s characters and a weak villain, but Tom Cruise’s consistent charm, a strong level of engaging action sequences with incredible stunt work and choreography, and enough surprises with those damn face masks are just what will bring about our enjoyment in the film. It’s got a lot of more action than the first film, and although it doesn’t have as many of those iconic moments, it earns the enjoyment that it should as a strong action espionage thriller.
Chris Day’s Rating: 2/5 stars
