By Wayne Klein HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 6, 2006
Format: DVD
Beyond the basic concept the "Mission: Impossible" films have little to do with the original TV series. In fact this is a recreation for an audience brought up on high octane action films. De Palma's film reinvents the popular TV franchise although many long time fans were probably upset that Jim Phelps was played by Jon Voight and that he's killed in the first 15 minutes of the film. Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is accused by his own agency of engineering the death of his IMF team to protect his identity as a traitor. Hunt suddenly alone must assemble a team (Ving Rhames, Jean Reno)of his own to help clear his name.

The updated transfer looks marvelous here with richer, bolder colors and an anamorphic high definition transfer that improves on the previous DVD. This also features some decent extras although they have less to do with the history of the show and translating it to the big screen than with Cruise and Brian De Palma's attempt to update it for a new audience. There's also a preview for MI3 included as well as a ticket for free theater admission to MI3 until 5/14/06.

"MI2" plays much more like a cross between a Bond film and a Hong Kong action movie. That's good in a way because it's every bit as different from the first as the third is from the second. Director John Woo keeps "MI2" a fresh adventure. This time Ethan Hunt is directed by his boss (Anthony Hopkins in a nice cameo)to discover who stole the dangerous Chimera virus and its antidote. This nasty virus is 100% lethal and if the cure isn't given within a certain time frame it's worthless. Hunt discovers and tracks down a disgruntled IMF member (Doug Ray Scott who was originally to play Wolverine in "X-Men" until he was injured on this film)but the clock is ticking as Chimera may fall into the wrong hands.

Mission Impossible 1 and 2 get the "Special Edition" treatment with this 2 Disc package.
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE
Brian DePalma's big-screen adaptation of the long-running T.V show is flashy, action- filled and with a plot that's extremely complicated but thankfully so, as it raises the film above standard fare. DePalma's trend for wild camera moves, excellent action and a sharp screenplay from David Koepp (Jurassic Park) and a great performance from Tom Cruise (as spy Ethan Hunt) all combine to create one wild, exciting ride, with some unexpected twists to keep the audience guessing.
This, in what would be DePalma's last good film of late (Snake Eyes and Mission to Mars were way below par) is an exciting adrenalin-pumping action fest with the smooth Cruiser making the coolest spy since Sean Connery in Dr NO. Also along for the ride are Jon Voight as Hunt's boss, Jean Reno and Ving Rhames as the disavowed agents and Vanessa Redgrave. Cool action, a great story, and a flashy look from the man who gave us the excellent "The Untouchables". One of the greatest action films ever made. And then some.
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2
John Woo's glossy sequel to Brian DePalma's excellent action film sees Tom Cruise return as the super-cool spy Ethan Hunt. This time, the plot is more straightforward than the first, and in contrast, the action is more outrageous.
Starting out with a literal cliffhanger, the film takes off with some good action scenes and trademark coolness from the Cruiser. But events seem somewhat un-involving, lacklustre even, as the plot meanders slowly along, with some boring sub-plots and un-inspired dialogue. And Thandie Newton provides eye candy but very little else.

The Missions movies have varying degrees of quality. The first two are great spy craft, action flicks. The original has a great cast with Tom Cruise, John Voigt, Emilio Estevez, et. al. leading the way, and giving you a nostalgic trip back to the old-school tech and archaic internet. Two has just as good of a cast saving the world with a little more swagger including Cruise, Thandie Newton (looking good), Dougray Scott (getting his evil mastermind on), Ving Rhames (working for the good guys this time, but still ripped like always), and the ever-talented Brendan Gleeson (in a somewhat lesser main role). A great set of movies in a box set with plenty of extras for both. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

As usual box sets are always pleasing, especially when there are many special features (like this set), but If you are a "die hard" fan of Mission impossible 1 and 2 I wouldn't buy this. Tom Cruise and David fincher are in talks to make a third (Tom Cruise want's a different director for each film). If you are truly a fan wait for the collectors edition of the trilogy.

I approached this film the way I approach any Tom Cruise film - it'll have its good moments, it'll have sassy dialogue, big grins, determined grimaces, and that "now I get it" look as realisation dawns on Tom's face that you get in every single one of his films. I'm not a fan, but most of his movies are pretty decent.

Turns out, though, that this one is very difficult to watch. The villain is not very interesting, the plot too confusing, and the film packed with too many slow motion John Woo moments to be taken seriously at all. Shame...

Skip forward to M:I3 - it's everything the first two movies wasn't!
