Brief Synopsis:
With over 140 edits and 38 minutes cut, what’s left is a well-paced, action packed spy/espionage thriller. Though still not as intriguing as the first MI, noror as dramatic as MI:3, this edit hopefully brings MI:2 closer in feel to them.
Intention:
Improve pacing and tone down the excessive John Woo style (slow motion, corny one liners, doves, etc.)
Editing Details:
One major change is the movie opening with a flash-forward to scene from the third act, similar to what J.J. Abrams did in MI:3. The movie then jumps back a month and story starts from there, eventually catching up to the FF scene.

The jewel heist meeting between Ethan and Nyah has been cut because it was tedious and made Nyah out to be an amateur thief who gets caught easily. Now they first meet when Ethan is pursuing Nyah and saves her life.

Some of the minor subplot was toned down. Instead of worrying about how Ambrose is going to make money with Chimera, the MI team is mainly concerned with stealing Chimera. Thus, kidnapping McCloy and tricking him into confessing is not necessary.

The ending has been changed so that Ambrose does not wake up and shoot at Ethan. In this edit, Ambrose gets knocked out after being superkicked by Ethan and that’s the end for Ambrose. No need to have the cliched ending where the bad guy comes back alive, and the good guy has to kill him for good.

With over 140 edits and 38 minutes cut, what’s left is a well-paced, action packed spy/espionage thriller. Though still not as intriguing as the first MI, noror as dramatic as MI:3, this edit hopefully brings MI:2 closer in feel to them.

If you must watch Mission Impossible II then make it this cut.

In the run up to Mission Impossible Fallout I figured I'd rewatch all the previous MI films, fully intending to skip the godawful II... until I found out about this fanedit. Godbless Gekko he did what he could to make this watchable, and his works and choices are exemplary but it is still an awful film. You could honestly put Ben Stiller in Tom Cruise's place and it would suddenly turn this film into a Tropical Thunder-esque masterpiece of parody. If you must watch Mission Impossible II then make it this cut, but be warned that you can't polish a turd
