Scissors up

I think everyone has been waiting for this summer's blockbuster, and I'm one of them.

It's easy to follow and not so complicated as the first--a real butt-kicking, non-stop action film all the way.

Film director John Woo, with all his superior talent for action movies, put this one over the top for me.

Move over James Bond. A tough act to follow, maybe impossible.

It's John Woo's unique directing that saves this dud, as Bond meets Matrix in MI:2.

With a bland script and slightly more plot than its predecessor, it's still a high-energy, adrenaline-boosted roller coaster ride.

In other words, it's everything you can expect from a summer movie.

A hesitant scissors up.

Tom Cruise jumps and dangles and kicks and shoots into Mission Impossible 2 without self destructing.

This may be the most action-driven film of his career. It's got a corkscrew plot line that twists through several exotic locales such as Australia, Spain, and the Rocky Mountains.

I was impressed by the fact that the star did almost all of his own hair-raising stunts, like hanging by his fingertips from a 2,000-foot cliff, with only a small safety cable for support, the most insanely dangerous scene in the movie.

Scissors up--I was impressed.
