This is a very well made edit, but, after watching it, I have to admit that I'd rather have rewatched John Woo's orginal with all its cheesiness and excesses. While watching Spence's version, while perfectly fine, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was watching a watered down version of something that was intended to be an over-the-top ridiculous action opera. I felt like having a Diet Cheesecake when the entire point is the decadence and richness. None of this is Spence's fault, mind you. I thought I wanted a version of M:I 2 that was more in line with the rest of the franchise, but I was completely wrong. I actually wanted John Woo's outrageous love letter to Tom Cruise's flowing hair and gun ballet, so I have this edit to thank for helping me come to that realization.
