Unlike "Superman Returns" and "The Matrix" set in make-believe places, John Woo’s "Mission Impossible 2" was both shot and set in Sydney, with the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Mrs Macquarie’s chair all featuring.
However, it’s Botany Bay’s Bare Island that takes center stage: its rugged coastline and ex-military base is Baddy’s heavily fortified secret lair.
It's also where the final and famous motorcycle duel plays out -- where Tom and Baddy tackle each other in mid-air as their bikes collide -- classic Woo action.
