Not as good as the first...

I've read a lot of bad reviews about this movie, and wasn't expecting too much in this movie. Admittedly, it was a lot better than I expected. Though definitely not as good as the first, this movie has a right to be called a Mission Impossible movie, it's filled with explosive action and death defying stunts. If you like Tom Cruise and like to watch him do all sorts of gravity defying action movies, then you won't want to miss this! The movie doesn't have all of the plot and intrigue of the first one, but it didn't put me to sleep. Now the stuff parents want to know. There is a lot of violence, some of it bloody, including people getting shot, beat up, and crashing in vehicles, like exploding planes and cars. Someone is infected with a virus and you see the affects of it. Tom is also slashed a few times with a knife. Language wise, it was a little less than the first. b*tch is used three times and bas*rd once. less bad words are used more often. Though one and three are better, this isn't a movie you should skip over. It's a lot of fun.

It is unbelievable. The first movie had Tom Cruise in it. This movie IS just Tom Cruise.

A Fun, Forgettable Action Movie...

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2 is a fun action movie with lots of thrills and adventure. However, when watching, I spotted dozens of ways the movie could have been better. Thus, it is not as good as it could have been. The violence in this movie is near-constant. There is actually less violence than in the third film, but it is more graphic and bloody. People are shot, drowned, injected with chemicals, and beaten (and we see quite a bit of blood). We see a man's bloody, frail-looking face after he's given a dangerous chemical. Characters are always in intense peril. Two main characters are shown in bed together after just meeting, but there is no sex (and nothing is shown but her shoulders and his chest). There is infrequent language: "d**n", "a*s", "s**t", and "b**ch".

Mission Impossible was great - this sequel has sacrificed the ingenious (and admittadly hard to follow) storywriting of the first for silly overblown action sequences and equally preposterous dialogue. There is some action...and then long lulls with nothing happening - the villain is unconvincing and tom cruise who is a pretty average actor has not the solid supporting cast he ahd in the first and the inclusion of Jim Phelps is sorely missed. All in all this the movie which really starts putting you to sleep after the first hour or so. It saved from complete failure by some excellent action in the last half hour but is still very average.
