Yeah, I watched it a few years ago and enjoyed it as well. Three was pretty good as well. Two was just awful.
2 has too much Woo

Uh... well, he jumps off an exploding, crashing, flying helicopter onto a moving train, in the middle of a tunnel nonetheless...

Yeah, I've always viewed the "at least 1 was relatively restrained" as complete baloney. :-P

And II definitely knows what it is. It goes all out with the stylistic flourishes, the dominance of the score, the overall impressionism.
Birdemic knows what it is too. :-P
But did it score three stars from ol' Ebert? :-P
Big deal. He only gave one-half star less to Pay it Forward.
Im looking at the back of the Boiling Point dvd cover and it says "3 and a half stars, Boiling Point sizzles. Riveting, swift and sassy." Why would they boast about 3 and a half stars though? I mean, if it was 4 and a half stars, okay. But 3 and a half stars and they boast about it? why not just say "Boiling Point is pretty good i guess. Riveting, swift and sassy, whatever that means. It has its moments, now hork over the dough please"?.
For me, the best part of the M:I II DVD is the MTV parody with Ben Stiller as "Tom Crooze", Tom Criuse's stunt double. I love M:I III though, J.J. Abrahams FTW. Smile
