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 IMF agent, Sean Ambrose. The Impossible Mission Force, IMF, hire the skilled and charming Ethan Hunt, and the beautiful Nyah Nirdoff-Hall, who has had her share with Ambrose. Their mission, should they choose to accept it is to send Hirdoff-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 buildings and dodging bullets. Its impossible.
After a brutal fight with the villain's henchman, Ethan tricks the villain by placing a mask of his own face onto the henchman (after duct taping the henchman's mouth closed). Then Ethan puts on a mask of the henchman's face and changes clothes with the him. All this would take considerable time, of course, even if Ethan did just happened to be carrying a mask of his own face AND a mask of the henchman's face as well - both of which seems highly unlikely.

"MI2" gets off to a good start, lags in the middle with weak story and character development, and turns into a muddled mess of gratuitous action in the end. With big budget, big names, and John Woo going for it, "MI2" delivers solid entertainment but falls short of expectations. The film fails to make the emotional connection between audience and characters and apparently tries to compensate with an overdose of action. The result is a numbing experience and a yawn provoking ending as good triumphs over evil.
