Something of a return to form after the unfortunate part 2. Decent story and action, but perhaps due to Abrams' TV roots, the whole affair feels smaller in scope than it should. Hoffman is a fantastic villain who deserved a more creative send-off than he got.

It's essentially Alias: The Movie, which makes it a pretty easy launch-point for Abrams' film career, and the most well-rounded M:I yet. Why is it we're three films deep and are only now seeing IMF headquarters? The cast is loaded with talented character actors, and it's Hoffman who steals the show as the villainous Owen Davian (though Pegg is sharp in the 'Marshall' role). A fun script that is perfectly paced, but Abrams' pedestrian direction holds it back relative to other Missions.

Incredibly entertaining! J.J. Abrams' addition to the franchise plays like the ultimate 'Alias' episode, and it's a hell of a thrill ride watching Ethan Hunt and his teammates operate. Everyone in the terrific cast (including Cruise) deliver, most notably a highly menacing Seymour Hoffman. The writing is as good as one can ask for in a blockbuster, with Fishburne getting some particularly enjoyable lines. Also, it's very rewatchable. The best movie in the franchise.

On a whole different level to MI2, this is a really enjoyable film to watch, with plentiful helpings of style, humor and action. The first film was groundbreaking, but has perhaps lost a little of its edge, so I'd actually have to say that if I could watch one of these films, it would be this one. The second one isn't even in the decision.

Fast-flowing, clean-cut and no-nonsense. Sticking to the save-the-world formula works, but this time around the storyline and characters are a little less substantial. M:I-1 showed us some great teamwork, M:I-2 was the one-man show par excellence, but the third installment fails to commit and ends up falling short of both. The main "impossible" aspect is how Tom Cruise is able to survive so many beatings, shootings, explosions, imprisonments, tortures and stunt-falls. Brawn exceeds brains.

Summer 2006's best straightforward action film, and possibly the best of Cruise's slick spy trilogy. Forget his Oprah antics, this man is a solid performer, and a heck of an action star. Plus, Philip Seymour Hoffman makes for a terrifying villain. Entertainment to the max.

Can Ethan Hunt juggle both work and family? The answer may shock you! Hoffman plays a great monotone sociopath, but everything else lags behind him. It feels like the film is going through the motions of being an action film. Where's the conviction? Where's the heart? I am pretty neutral on this film, so I can't write a good review. I apologize.

Good enjoyable action flick and my favourite of the revived Mission Impossible series. Much has been improved, the development of characters being the most prominent with Davien making an excellent villain and Cruise putting in a predictably solid performance, if a little overacted at times. Some elements still remain a little shallow, there's more infiltration and undercover activity and the direction by Abrams has put the spark back into a slipping series. But what was Rabbit's Foot?

This makes three times out of three that this series has used a rogue Impossible Missions agent as the villain. AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH. This is even worse than the overuse of the "blow the monster out the airlock" gag in the Alien series. It's not actually a bad movie, but all told this whole blasted trilogy (and counting) seems like a lot of money, talent, and time wasted on movies that will be forgotten in five years

Phillip Seymour Hoffman is of course fantastic. I saw this film after seeing #4, Ghost Protocol. This one is a bit grittier and darker than the fourth film, which is both a good and bad thing. Action scenes are awesome but start to blend together after a while. Still much better than most action films coming out nowadays - and god bless Tom Cruise for doing his own stunts.

JJ Abrams entry into the Mission: Impossible franchise goes for a low-fi style that accentuates gritty realism, but in doing so loses the grandiose quality inherent to a Mission: Impossible story.

I can't really put my finger on what it was, but I know I wasn't the only one who thought that this never really felt like more than an extended TV story. And it's not like JJ Abrams can't be cinematic, the 'Lost' pilot and to some degree the 'Star Trek' reboot prove this. That being said, this was probably my overall favorite of the series until Ghost Protocol, even if some would say it was the least rewatchable.

Ignoring the fact that it borrows heavily from True Lies right down to a aerial attack on what I assume is the same Florida Keys bridge, it's a well orchestrated spy/action movie (even if the final act is a bit tame).

The action is excellent, with countless expertly directed sequences throughout (see the opening cliffhanger, bridge assault, Vatican City heist featuring a cool look into mask-making). The character work is great too, even if Hunt's emotional thread doesn't break any new dramatic ground: PSH's villain is truly menacing (see his chilling plane threat) and the secondary cast is likeable as always (the final silent greeting scene was a lovely touch). The red herring-mole twist confounded, though.

The action had me on the edge of my seat all the way through. So damn tense. Getting emotions out of a movie which has an emotionless main character is something of an impossible mission, but Ethan Hunt never fails to accomplish his missions, right? This absolutely makes up for the disastrous second opus and the cheesiness of the first one. High quality movie.

Better than the 2nd installment in The Mission: Impossible, M:i:III is a nice action movie with the classic scene where Cruise dives and hangs literraly an inch from the ground. The scenes are nice, the acting is nice, everything is nice. Nothing to go crazy about and nothing to prevent you from enjoy it.

I would love to give this movie a higher score, but to have Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the bad guy??? He wasn't scary or even came off as some supergenius bent to take over the world. No, he was some schlub stealing an item so he could sell it to someone else. Aside from Hoffman, the rest of the cast was very good, and I liked the new director's take on the franchise.

Mission: Impossible III is the most complete film in the series up to this point. It has some good action, some solid drama, and characters that are deep enough to have some emotional payout at the end. If there's anything negative to be said about it, it's that nothing is exceptional; it's all just very good, with the exception of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's tremendous villain. It doesn't really have any major problems, though, and is definitely worth seeing.

An unlikely and impressive return to cinematic form. MI:2 was a ludicrously awful film (spare yourself and don't bother watching it before this) - but this one is slick in all the ways that wasn't. Hey, turns out distracting Abrams from the impending LOST trainwreck was actually worth it! Monaghan, PSH, Fishburne et al are great value as always. Only occasionally devolves into nonsense, but does so with same spirit of fun and goofiness of the memorable first outing! Okay, p4: don't f this up!

This, and the next two installments, really know what kinds of films they are (and are not). A bit of family set-up at the beginning helps later on with Ethan's wife used as not much more than a plot point, but the film has fun with all its assets, never indulges in seriousness or realism, and goes to town with some wild action scenes and espionage sequences, with the usual fun gadgetry, stunts, and a keen lack of reliance on CGI.

J.J. Abrams takes over from John Woo in a film dedicated to delivering the modern-action-movie goods big-time. Interestingly, this is easily a much funnier film than the first two: witty one-liners, a certain Simon Pegg making his first appearance in the saga and the bathroom scene, which is pure comedic gold. But don't get fooled, the focus here is, as always, on big-scale action. And there's still room, unfortunately, for some melodrama. An overall satisfactory continuation of the franchise.
