How do you prevent terrorists from unleashing mayhem on the entire world? This is a job for IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The world's greatest spy returns in the movie event of the year, M:I-2. Top action director John Woo brings his own brand of excitement to the mission that finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) partnering up with the beautiful Nyah Hall (Thandie Newton) to stop renegade agent Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) from releasing a new kind of terror on an unsuspecting world. But before the mission is complete, they'll traverse the globe and have to choose between everything they love and everything they believe in.

"Woo is a master of movement and chaos.  Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times
"Tom Cruise sizzles in a blast of thrills and suspense.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's exhilarating! M:I-2 is a pure kinetic adventure! Thumbs up!  Roger Ebert, Ebert At The Movies

Editor's Note
John Woo raises the action bar in this violent, romantic sequel to Brian De Palma's 1996 original. Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, this time battling wits with rogue IMF agent Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott). Hunt is ordered to recruit Ambrose's former lover, Nyah Hall (Thandie Newton), to infiltrate his hideout. But Hunt never expected to fall for the lovely young thief he must use for bait. The romantic triangle that ensues gives the film a unique emotional balance that is unusual (and most welcome) for an action picture. Ambrose is after the killer Chimera virus and its antidote, Bellerophon; in the old days Ambrose would have been after world domination, but in this new world order of day trading and Internet stocks, all he wants is to corner the market and make a fortune.

Woo outdoes even himself with a flurry of martial-arts fights, fiery shootouts, thrilling mountain climbing, and blazing motorcycle chases that lead from the beautiful peaks of Utah through the busy streets of Sydney. All of this is set to a booming hard-rock soundtrack that battles with the explosions and blasting guns for ear space. And he doesn't fail to include his trademark birds fluttering like peaceful interludes in the most threatening of moments.

Entertainment Weekly 9 of 10
...shot for shot [the movie] is something all too rare: a believe-your-eyes thriller... Cruise...has become the most forcefully athletic of our action demigods... he holds the screen, from that pressure-drop opening on, with the lean eloquence of his physical alacrity... M:I-2 has what the Bond films have long lost: the ability to surprise. - Owen Gleiberman
