Everything MI:2 should have been and more
8 March 2001 | by smash_retroSee all my reviews

What a great action flick!

This movie tries to follow generic Hollywood high-tech action thriller guidelines, but gets thrown off track by good acting, a complex story, beautiful trick-cinematography, awesome spy gadgets, incredible special effects, and a healthy dose of kung-fu. It's simply a very well thought out, very well made film along the lines of the Matrix but with a slightly less exotic location. (Kuala-Lumpur and Australia)

The characters are complex and introspective if you use your imagination a little. Emotion is implied. Rather than saying one word about their feelings throughout the film, the characters let their actions speak for them. It's definitely possible to view this movie on two different levels- the first of pure enjoyment, the second of discovering motives behind the story.

I wouldn't say this movie changed my life, but there's almost nothing better I can recommend for assured entertainment. The year 2000 has shown Hong Kong catch up to and surpass Hollywood even in the big-budget thriller genre. What's next? If Skyline Cruisers is any indication, a Chinese live-action 'Gatchaman' film can't be too far behind.
