After earning 00 status and a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007. Bond must defeat a private banker funding terrorists in a high-stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro.
Chimera is a deadly virus that will bear a grisly death unless you are given the antidote. The creator of Chimera is murdered and the antidote is stolen by a disavowed I.M.F. Agent, Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott). The Impossible Mission Force, (I.M.F.), hire the skilled and charming Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), and the beautiful Nyah Hall (Thandie Newton), who has had her share with Ambrose. Their mission, should they choose to accept it, is to send Hall undercover to Ambrose and learn what she can for Hunt to bring down Chimera, but they will have to break into a secure lab by jumping off of buildings and dodging bullets. Its impossible.
(at around 1h 50 mins) From the helicopter's point of view, as it approaches Nyah on the cliff over the harbor, safety wires can be seen attached to/in/behind/otherwise appearing to come outward from the actress's hands. See more »
Mission Commander Swanbeck:
[during a breifing in Sevile, Spain]
Mr. Hunt, this isn't mission difficult, it's mission impossible. "Difficult" should be a walk in the park for you.

Norwegian cinema version contained the extra violence just like the UK cinema version. The DVD release however did not include them. See more »
If only those from the end pigeons would have pecked out my eyes!
No matter how you feel about Jim Carry you should thank him for making the Grinch, because up until that came out M:I2 had been the highest grossing movie of 2000. Which would have been quite awful way to begin the new millennium. Or end the last one, depending on how annoying you are about that issue. Do not see this movie even if Tom Cruise rings your doorbell and threatens to wave his long hair in slow motion as he did so often in film if you don't view it. It has absolutely no redeeming qualities about it at all. The tape inside the film's video cassette is to thick to use as dental floss, To long to work as a belt. Also This movie is not only awful, it is a total knock off of Notorious by the incredible director Alfred Hitchcock. The following parts of Notorious were completely stolen and screwed up by Tom: Cary Grant and Ingrid meeting at the race track and her boy friend becoming suspicious of them. Cary seducing Bergman and then using her in his spy work. Ingrid having to go under cover and marry the bad guy, who is in love with her. Tom, if your going to make a movie that sucks, please don't try and tarnish a perfectly good Hitchcock in the process.
