If you can watch this purely for the visual excitment, it's awesome!
You know you're watching a John Woo movie if...
1. Most everyone is wearing a black trenchcoat.
2. Half the movie is in slow motion.
3. Heros are generally proceeded by doves or other glowing, symbolicitems of mass courage.
4. More than one helicopter explodes.
5. Everyone cool wears sunglasses and eventually removes them in a slow-motion, classy mannor.
6. Character names are unusual, but deeply representative.
7. Motorcycles are rampant.
8. The hero can shoot the badguy while jumping through fire, swinging from a rope, falling down an elevator shaft or riding on the front wheel of a motorcycle while spinning a one-hundred-eighty degree circle at sixty miles per hour.
9. The plot generally revolves around the villian's intent on mass destruction.
10. Ammunition lasts more than the clip can hold. MUCH more.
11. Always more than one gun shoots at the same time.
12. By the end of the movie everything that isn't exploding has
already exploded.

Of the two episodes in this video, the best is The Seal. It is always great to watch the IMF in action. In The Seal, an ancient and sacred seal has been stolen from an obscure country and in the interest of obtaining their favor in the Cold War, it is the team's duty to return the seal.
While this is an earlier episode, you can tell the show was hitting its stride. All the elements are there: timed sequences, the fake accents, a magician, hiding in equipment to gain entrances, fake ids and what is always best - watching the team psych out their prey.
I do not recall having seen this episode and I was surprisingly tense watching this show...there is so much going on and you know there is always the unexpected surprise. This show had everything including a trained cat! Don't miss it.

I had this on DVD but could nnot resist seeing this in HD! The movie is fantastic with director John Woo placing his signature action sequences to great use. This time secret agent Ethen Hunt is on a mission to hunt down a threat called Chimera.

This is one of these movies that rewards you for having it in High-Def.

Once again, John Woo directs a masterpiece. Forget plot, forget actors, instead focus on the beauty within each camera frame. Mr Woo's style is perfect in form and pleasing to the eye. Watch the picture, see the use of symbolism, the fight between good and evil and the heroe's triumph.
The movie's plot did lag in the middle, but spectacular special effects and coreographed violence made it all worth it. Villians are a dime a dozen and only few stand out in our mind. This one does not quite do it, however. Tom cruise and his She-ra in the movie struggled through their lines. But remember that movies are not just actors and dialogue, they tell a story. This movie could have just had pictures and music and the story would been told just the same.
Surely not the best John Woo film out there, but a masterpiece as only he can deliver. Thanks Mr Woo!

Looks like everyone has an opinion of MI:2 which boils down to either "hate" or "great". However, what about actual quality of the DVD? For those of you who DID like the movie (and I did enjoy it) and are wondering if they should get the DVD I would say 'YES'. Unlike so many other DVD's that are suppose to be packed with extras (*cough* X-Men *cough*) MI:2 has a nice variety of extras that I actually found interesting and enjoyable. Especially interesting are the behind the scene looks at how they filmed the numerous action sequences (some of which were much more dangerous than some of these reviews have given the actors credit for). The addition of the MTV skit with Ben Stiller is great. Picture and sound quality is top notch (check out the review from 'Widescreen Review'). Despite the number of bad reviews I know people liked the film (it did gross over $200 million domestically) so for those people I say this high quality DVD is one to add to your collection.
BTW, I'm not dissing the X-Men movie, just the quality of extras on the 'Special Edition' DVD. The movie is top notch and there is no question it is far better a movie than MI:2.

It is rare to see Tom Cruise to show emotion, but he does in this movie. I don't know if it is because of the chemistry between he and Thandie Newton, but they definitely have chemistry. It is directed by John Loo, so that makes it action packed, especially the one on one fights.

Memorial Day weekend is traditionally when a huge summer blockbuster hits theaters and causes people to line up for hours just to watch stuff blow up. This year was no exception, as the eagerly anticipated Mission Impossible 2 opened to hordes of people wanting to see Tom Cruise dangling from a cliff and, of course, blowing a lot of stuff up.
Before diving into this feature-packed DVD, be warned that M:I-2 is a very different movie than its predecessor. Where the previous movie was more of a mystery with a little action tossed in, M:I-2 is a straight up popcorn movie and fits the summer blockbuster profile nearly perfectly.
Mission Impossible 2 is a strange sequel. It doesn't make any references to its 1996 hit predecessor, and the only returning characters are Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and Luther Sickell (Ving Rhames).
The movie opens with a theft of a deadly genetically engineered disease known as Chimera by a group of terrorists lead by a former IMF agent turned bad (Dougrey Scott). Of course, the only person who can stop him is Ethan Hunt.
Ethan teams up with again with Luther, and gets help from an international thief by the name of Nyah (Thandie Newton). Throughout the course of the mission, Nyah gets infected with the Chimera and Ethan must then get the cure, which is known as Ballerophon.
If all of this sounds familiar, its because the story is just so cookie-cutter. We've all seen the good agent/bad agent thing before in Bond movies (Goldeneye anyone?), and the whole "genetically engineered virus in the hands of terrorists" angle has been played out in movies such as The Rock.
Which brings up one of the biggest problems with the movie - the plot (or lack of one).
