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.
Oliver Stone was the first director attached to this film in the period after the first film's release. He reportedly wrote a treatment, but backed out, due to scheduling conflicts resulting from Tom Cruise's prolonged stint on Eyes Wide Shut (1999). See more »
During the Biocyte break-in, Hunt uses a glass cutter to gain entry into the lab. He also uses a suction cup handle to grab the hole plug. He is seen initially placing the handle to the side of the cutter, but when he moves the plug, the same handle is now centered on the plug. See more »
[referring to Nyah, standing in Sean's mansion]
Why do you think she's really here?
From her point of view or mine?
Well, she wasn't exactly gagging for it when she left you six months ago.

"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.
