msmichel's rating of the film Mission: Impossible II

Somehow remembered this being much better. Ten years on this entry just seems like a John Woo parody of himself. The story is super light, the villians kind of lame and the lack of sexual chemistry between Cruise and Thandie Newton pretty laughable. Some very good stunt work but with no real set piece to highlight the film like the other entries. Save 'Hard Boiled' Woo's american entries have always disappointed.
