Re: Mission: Impossible (1996), Brian de Palma

Okay, so I've gone ahead and bought, at a Vintage Stock, the 2nd and 3rd Mission Impossible movies (as well as "The Net" as they were having a Buy 2 Get One Free sale) and watched the second movie.

Oy. This one, for me, is just a complete mess. It's over stylized and just full of John Woo's usual bullshit. And Thandie Newton can't act for shit and, frankly, isn't attractive enough to be a female lead.

And John waayyyyyy over uses the rubber mask gag, we get it, John, you like doves! And the score mis-uses the iconic theme.
