Scott LeBrun Tom Cruise again essays his continuing role of super-agent Ethan Hunt, here tasked with rescuing a protege (Keri Russell) who managed to get herself kidnapped. It turns out, this plot point is just the tip of the iceberg, in a typically extravagant action-adventure spectacular that has Ethan doing battle with a dastardly black-market arms dealer, Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman). For Ethan, the whole operation hits way too close to home when the bad guys kidnap his new bride Julia (Michelle Monaghan), who has no idea what he really does for a living.J.J. Abrams stepped aboard as the third director to tackle this franchise, giving us our money's worth and then some. The story probably wouldn't hold up to a lot of scrutiny, but at least with movies like this, they entertain you so thoroughly you're not given that many quiet moments to ponder how insane all of it is.Naturally, there is some first-rate, amazing stunt work, as well as the expected pulse-quickening action scenes, and plenty of explosions to hold our attention. The story does have the requisite number of twists and turns. For example, its opening two minutes just grab you right away, although we can sense that this sequence is actually from much later in the tale.Cruises' star charisma (and physical prowess) are on full display here, and he's aided and abetted by a very strong supporting cast: Laurence Fishburne, Billy Crudup, Ving Rhames, Maggie Q, Simon Pegg, and Eddie Marsan. The radiant Monaghan is appealing as Hunts' wife. And since movies such as this are dependent on the effectiveness of the villain, Hoffman admirably fills the bill. He's just incredibly cold-blooded and controlled. Aaron Paul of 'Breaking Bad' fame has a small part.What helps the storytelling is that Abrams and his screenwriters introduce a level of humanity, as we get to see Hunt off the job for once. He truly believes that it's possible for someone in his line of work to have a normal, healthy relationship, although his co-workers doubt this.Solid stuff overall, and indicative of how the series has continued to flourish, despite its lacklustre second entry.Eight out of 10.
yeral yeral (ismetyeral) The famous director J.J Abrahams adds color to the third film after the second film has brought the series to the breathtaking and traceabilityIn the second film, we saw many things about Asia, with these films, both these are getting up and there are quality action scenes, we see the film and the drama in a fluent way, and meanwhile we wanted to touch the movie, there is music almost everybody else made this film more influential In short, watch the movie for sure
betty dalton MI- 3 is the third Mission Impossible in the series. And it is one of the best. Not the best, but it comes close. Seen it over 5 times now and I still do enjoy it very much. It has stood the test of time. What makes MI-3 especially thrilling is the acting performance of the bad guy played by none other than legendary Philip Seymour Hoffman. Without a doubt Hoffman plays the most convincing crook in the whole Mission Impossible series. This man gives MI-3 it's balls.The action is over the top, like it should be. But it is still credible. Every stunt (minus one) could have been pulled off in real life too. This movie has a real gritty, tough feel to it. But there are still some excellent jokes in between to lighten things up. And for the first time there is a romance interwoven into the story. I normally hate romances in action movies, but it works. Again the story and the action and also the romance are credible, believable. And when story and acting is credible I can enjoy a movie over and over again. And so I do with MI-3 !
Karl Meyers I was hesitant to see it because of how bad Mission Impossible 2 was, but I think it more than makes up for the 2nd flop and I would even argue that it's better than the first. The action really is non-stop, and there aren't any cheesy love scenes slowing anything down. The bad guy doesn't change every five minutes either. The plot moves quickly but it doesn't lose the audience at all. You don't need to have seen either of the first two to understand what is going on (I can't remember the plot from either). Lots of guns, loud explosions, cool gadgets and fun locations. I can remember on more than one occasion where the audience clapped or reacted to the action. It does everything an action movie should do very well. I would highly advise anyone who likes action movies to go see it. Even if you think Tom Cruise is a little insane, MI:III is extremely enjoyable.
