Trivia

  • The part of Mission Commander Swanbeck was originally offered to Sir Ian McKellen. He was not able to accept the role, due to a prior theatre engagement in London and the part eventually went to Sir Anthony Hopkins. McKellen's agent was stunned when he turned down a small supporting role. Had he accepted it, the costly overruns would have prevented him from playing Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and like Dougray Scott, he would also have missed out on X-Men (2000).

Goofs

  • (at around 18 mins) Ethan changes gears while holding the wheel and a cell phone because the Porsche he is driving has a "Tiptronic" transmission that allows changing gears from the steering wheel.

Quotes

    • [during a breifing in Sevile, Spain]
    • Mission Commander Swanbeck: Mr. Hunt, this isn't mission difficult, it's mission impossible. "Difficult" should be a walk in the park for you.

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

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