Watch it for completionist-sake ... but in a series with very self-contained entries, (this film) isn't really necessary or recommended.
March 6, 2018
"M:I-2," as the new Mission: Impossible is tagged, is a slick, expensive, bullet-ridden thriller that is oddly dull -- the last thing you'd expect.
November 28, 2017
John Woo's Mission: Impossible 2 is the biggest film of the year so far, and it's nothing, nothing at all. No one will like it much. No one will love it.
January 2, 2016
The worst of John Woo's American films (though that is a competitive race).
March 27, 2009
Woo lays on his own particular high-octane stylishness so thick the results edge perilously toward self-parody.

Here, Woo just seems to fall back on slow-mo whenever he gets bored, which apparently is often.

With all this having been done before, making MI2 interesting or suspenseful truly is an impossible mission.
February 9, 2006
Woo's hysterically hyper visuals and boytoy gimmickry can't camouflage the emptiness of the enterprise.
December 6, 2005
It doesn't matter how many extra months the director spends creating impressive action scenes. If the audience is not emotionally invested in the fate of the heroes, no amount of explosions will make them care.
December 6, 2004
This sequel seems afraid of confusing people, so much so that it dumbs down the plot to an insulting level.
February 8, 2003
Fans of straight action/adventure may enjoy this film; fans of TV's Mission: Impossible may not recognize it.

Despite Cruise's attempts here to be Byronic, there's something strenuous about his soulfulness; he turns everything, even repose, into calisthenics.
July 12, 2002
M:I-2 takes itself far too seriously.
May 8, 2002
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.
March 22, 2002
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.
March 7, 2002
If not the worst movie of the year, the most insulting and infuriating.

Those hoping for a solid flick using the full talents of people like Woo, Cruise, Rhames, etc. will sadly be disappointed.
April 2, 2001
How the mighty have fallen.
