Mission Impossible 2: The Spence Edit certainly does what it sets out to do, the whole film has the mature and less comedic tone of the original version: Like said in other reviews, the new opening credits transition and sequence is great! I loved how it was edited, I acrtually bought MI:2 specifically one for my collection, but also to see it's cheesiness, but I wanted to try the more serious version first and it delivers! I really like what Spence did here and think this fits as a great installment in the series, despite it's uneditable flaws. Only complaint? The cliff climbing scene was so 2000's come oN!! :D Should've kept it in!

But no in all seriousness, great work!

The weakest MI films gets a really nice makeover. By removing nearly 20 minutes of footage, the film really cuts to the chase and excise some of the cheesier moments. The alternate score is well chosen though the volume is noticeably too high in places. I also take exception to the decision to put score over the "knife to the eye" scene. I felt that the original silent version of the moment worked much better.

Overall it is a good time that goes at a brisk pace. None of the removed bit affect the narrative in any meaningful way. I've now seen 3 Spence edit and he really has that aspect of editing down pat.
