    Strangely, what it most lacks is the genuine tension found in the first "Mission"'s signature set pieces. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Woo masterfully stages fierce and memorably destructive cinematic sequences, but his use of slow motion becomes tiresome, and the motorcycles-and-kung fu finale gets pretty hokey. Cruise comes off as fearless and virile, and his fans should not be disappointed in the slightest. [24 May 2000]

    More evolved, more confident, more sure-footed in the way it marries minimal character development to seamless action. show more
