Impossible 2 : (aka Mi2)
Hunt (Tom Cruise) is back. This time his mission, if he chooses
to accept it, which of course he does or this would be a short film,
is to find a virus.
our panel of critics thought
dum dar dar dum dum dar dar dum dum..."
'mission if you decide to accept it' self destruction happened in
only 4 seconds not the 5 as advertised. I want my money back."
it time the IMF devised a smoke-free self destruct message? The
special effects are all modern, but smoking inside has been phased
out long ago. Get with it Tom and co!"
that's where Hannibal Lecter went: A middle manager in the IMF!
No wonder the world is in the state it's in."
do hope the International Monetary Fund (the real IMF) benefited
from this IMF mention. Or should they rename themselves to the Impossible
Mission Force? I would just love to meet a real IMF agent, but fear
that they would not look half as buff as our Tom, probably more
like an accountant an economist or heavens forbid, a dirty rotten
can I get my hands on a machine that makes the masks they use?"
you telling me that that scene at the start of the movie, with Tom
Cruise climbing the rocks, and hanging on as the camera went past,
was genuine? Kudos Tom."
Australia, and Seville, Spain, are two of the locations in this
increasingly urgent CGIfest. A sunny, if a little empty journey."
tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary
Cruise's character Ethan Hunt, almost gets a scratch in a fight
with a Scottish guy, Dougray Scott who plays evil guy Sean Ambrose.
No fears hairdresser type fans, Tom's hair is never in danger of
looking anything less than quiffed to perfection.
girlfriend for this mission, Thandie Newton playing Nyah Nordoff-Hall,
injects herself with the deadly 'Chimera' virus but an antidote
is clearly eventually found and everyone lives happily ever after.
Unfortunately the whole point of the mission was to get a live instance
of the Chimera virus so the mission fails, but it was quite a journey
and as they had spent all the money on making the movie we assume
they thought they might as well bring it out...
little bit more understandable than the first one. John Woo directs.
It's a cool actioner but the face-off-mask idea is, we fear, just
an easy way to spice up a paint by numbers plot.
There's a brilliant stunt where two motorcyclists jump off their
motorcycles and bodyslam each other. An American James Bond.
