This week’s Movie for Folding Laundry…Mission Impossible 2! So, pull out your laundry basket and round up your odd socks. Get ready for the second thrilling installment in the Ethan Hunt saga.
Do you recall the old TV series? You are right…the old TV show bares little resemblance to this movie series, except of course for the IMF and the ubiquitous theme song and “this will self-destruct in 2 minutes.”
In this second movie, Ethan Hunt is a little older and more rough around the edges. In Mission Impossible, Ethan is a raw recruit, ready for battle. Now Ethan knows that by doing the assignments required by his boss, he could lose his life and those of his team.
I found this review on imdb.com:
IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) has been sent on a mission to retrieve and destroy the supply of a genetically created disease called ‘Chimera’. His mission is made impossible due to the fact that he is not the only person after samples of the disease. He must also contest with a gang of international terrorists headed by a turned bad former IMF agent who has already managed to steal the cure called ‘Bellerophon’ and now need ‘Chimera’ to complete their grand plan of infecting the whole world. In order to infiltrate and locate the terrorist group he relies on the help of an international thief Nyah (Thandie Newton) of whom he quickly develops a love interest. Time is not only running out for Agent Hunt to find and destroy ‘Chimera’ before the terrorists get their hands on it, but he must also find ‘Bellerophon’ so as to save his love interest who has already become infected by the disease from a terrible and rapid death.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to obtain Mission Impossible 2 and watch it. Should you drown in piles of laundry or choke on an odd sock, the IMF cannot be held responsible and will disavow all knowledge of your existence.
