Woo lays on his own particular high-octane stylishness so thick the results edge perilously toward self-parody.
Dennis Harvey, Variety  full review
 
For all my profound reservations about the whole project, I wound up liking it more, or, at least disliking it less, than I had anticipated. Thandie Newton is the biggest reason.
Andrew Sarris, New York Observer  full review
 
Woo's hysterically hyper visuals and boytoy gimmickry can't camouflage the emptiness of the enterprise.
Derek Adams, Time Out  full review
 
It's fun. It's laughable. It has moments of excitement, moments of sheer idiocy and moments of sheer idiotic excitement.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
A strained sequel to a feature rip-off of an old television show with a stealable theme song. On screen and off, no one's getting marks for originality here.
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail  full review
 
Check your brains at the popcorn stand and hang on for a spectacular ride.
Lou Lumenick, New York Post
 
Mission: Impossible 2 is pure escapism and never pretends to be anything else.
 
Isn't bad as summer action fare goes.
Sean Means, Film.com
 
M:I-2 more than meets the challenge of summer sequeldom.
Kevin Maynard, Mr. Showbiz
 
Bottom line, M:I-2 seems destined to create the kind of excitement and box-office punch that insiders have been predicting since the turn of the century.
Susan Stark, Detroit News  full review
 
Once Woo unleashes his bad self and ignites the proceedings here, once the glass shatters, the flames erupt, the gunshots ricochet and the doves fly, all is well with M:I-2.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
It's eye candy that detonates.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Ita(TM)s hard to generate suspense when the audience has no reason to believe a character is ever in danger.
Sergio Barreto, Chicago Reader  full review
 
Woo beats Brian De Palma's direction of M:I all to heck.
Louis B. Parks, Houston Chronicle  full review
 
There are graceful Woo touches even outside the action scenes, like the swaying of sheep as a helicopter buzzes their pen in the Outback. But it's not enough to get over the blandness.
Robert Horton, Film.com
 
A vaguely absurd epidemiological thriller filled with elaborately superfluous setups and shamelessly stale James Bond riffs.
J. Hoberman, Village Voice  full review
