Mission Impossible 2 offers a bit of escapism and a hefty shot of cinematic adrenalin.

If you're into movies that constantly make you grin like an idiot and mutter "Oh yeah!" over and over, you'll be satisfied.

M:I-2 takes itself far too seriously.

It's fun. It's laughable. It has moments of excitement, moments of sheer idiocy and moments of sheer idiotic excitement.

Everything has fallen into place for an action megathriller that should please everyone except those still smarting over the Jim Phelps betrayal.

John Woo utiliza a história como uma mera desculpa para brindar o espectador com seqüências de ação absolutamente eletrizantes.

Becomes disastrously bogged down in an interminable second act that is joyless and inert and from which it doesn’t begin to recover for over an hour.

A strained sequel to a feature rip-off of an old television show with a stealable theme song. On screen and off, no one's getting marks for originality here.

If not the worst movie of the year, the most insulting and infuriating.

Capraesque. Hitchcockian. Add Wootastic to the Lexicon.

The crashes, action sequences and effects are all accomplished pretty much seamlessly and professionally though one criticism of this movie is overabundance.

Those hoping for a solid flick using the full talents of people like Woo, Cruise, Rhames, etc. will sadly be disappointed.

M:I-2's visual assets triumphantly lift its otherwise stock material to Grade-A levels.

This is the action movie of the year, maybe the best in several years. It is trying to be the next Bond-type franchise series and if the next one is anywhere near this good, it may succeed.

If Mr. Cruise peeled off his face and turned out to have been Chow Yun Fat all along, the picture might be saved.

Itâ(TM)s hard to generate suspense when the audience has no reason to believe a character is ever in danger.
