Densely-plotted action blockbuster

"If you're dealing with a man who has crushed, shot, stabbed, and detonated five members of his own IMF team, how devastated do you think you're gonna make him by hauling Mom and Uncle Donald down to the county courthouse?"

More than merely a Tom Cruise action vehicle, Mission: Impossible was born out of the Hollywood craze during the 1990s to adapt as many cult television shows int... read more

It's not Impossible to like this film

With the trend that began in the early 1990's to adapt old television series into major motion pictures, Mission: Impossible was one of the many added to the list. Premiering in the late 1960's, Mission: Impossible was hit series for CBS for seven seasons and brought actors such as Peter Graves and Martin Landau to popular stardom. In 1996, superstar Tom Cruise collaborated with director Brian de ... read more

Review of Mission: Impossible

In what roughly equals one third of Mission: Impossible, I could only ask myself, "What the heck is going on?" Mission: Impossible can be so hopelessly convoluted at times, it's impossible to understand the film's plot. This is especially odd, as the plot isn't even especially complex, it's just presented in an needlessly complicated way. Still, all story and screenplay issues are easily redeem... read more

"Re-watch - Aug. 5th After seeing Fallout I felt like I should revisit the first film in the franchise to see whether it still held the top spot. And no, it doesn't. I still really dig everything going on throughout the film, and De Palma did an outstanding job for the time it was produced in. The film works best when we're following Ethan along as he works to reveal what's really going on around him, and the tension of the Langley scene still works for me. The ending goes a little too over the "

Mission: Impossible Franchise - Ranked (6 movies items)

" If it weren't for that overly silly and slightly out-of-place action set-piece at the end, Mission: Impossible would be a masterfully told low-key suspense thriller. It's so carefully constructed and cleverly structured by Brian De Palma up until that point that it's slightly shocking to see how loud and obnoxious the climax turns out to be. Now - that's the direction the franchise decided to go, and it has turned out very well over the years. But for this film, I would have loved an ending tha"

"Superb first outing for Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt in Brian De Palma's skillfully directed blockbuster. As the IMF team are killed during a mission and only Ethan Hunt is alive, he must get a list of known agents to an arms dealer known as Max while trying to stop the double crossing and triple crossing that is occurring within his own unit. Crammed with decent set pieces including the now-classic scene in the vault where Ethan is dangling in a room trying to get the list. Now that's what I call a "

" I managed to catch sight of this trailer on a video promoting the video game and I was immediately blown away by the impressive stunts and set pieces on show. It also doesn't hurt that Emmanuelle Béart is there to steam things up a little. I have no recollection of how I felt about the movie but if anything good came out of it, the trailer was definitely one of them."
