Mission: Impossible

Overview

After he is framed for the death of several colleagues and falsely branded a traitor, a secret agent embarks on a daring scheme to clear his name in the spy adventure Mission: Impossible. Though it drew its name from the familiar television series, director Brian DePalma's big-budget adaptation shares little more with the original show than the occasional self-destructing message and the name of team leader Jim Phelps Jon Voight.

Overview

After he is framed for the death of several colleagues and falsely branded a traitor, a secret agent embarks on a daring scheme to clear his name in the spy adventure Mission: Impossible. Though it drew its name from the familiar television series, director Brian DePalma's big-budget adaptation shares little more with the original show than the occasional self-destructing message and the name of team leader Jim Phelps Jon Voight. The film focuses not on Phelps but his protégé, Ethan Hunt a reserved Tom Cruise, who becomes a fugitive after taking the blame for a botched operation. He responds by banding together with a group of fellow renegades, and he is soon maneuvering his way through a twisted series of double crosses that mainly serve as excuses for spectacular high-tech action sequences. Much of the activity revolves around a missing computer disk, with the film's most famous scene depicting Hunt's delicate efforts to retrieve the disk from a secure, well-alarmed room in CIA headquarters.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A superior summer blockbuster in nearly every respect, this Brian De Palma-helmed adaptation of the '60s TV series provoked a lot of unnecessary head-scratching at the time for having a plot that actually required attention to follow (a criticism its inferior 2000 sequel apparently took to heart). But even those put off by David Koepp, Steve Zaillian, and Robert Towne's twisty screenplay still had plenty to enjoy: a charismatic lead performance from Tom Cruise, a well-chosen supporting cast, and some unforgettable set pieces to rank with the best of De Palma's career. Not that the film itself does. Clever without really being about more than its action sequences, nifty gadgets, and memorable locations (although it might be argued that all those surveillance devices tap into some familiar themes), this is clearly De Palma working as a director-for-hire. But like the best hired help, he gets the job done and then some.

    Ordinary story with masterful visual planning. This wasn't the story I was expecting. The premise by the end of the film doesn't ring true
    story doesn't ring true. There is a huge plot hole that is false when it comes to the operation of the CIA. The first
    thing the CIA would do with it's huge budget resources would be to recover the dead bodes in Prague!!! CIA would
    have recovered Jack from the elevator shaft, Hana from the detonated car and Sarah and Golitisyn! The
    only remaining agents would be Ethan, Claire and Jim. Unless Jim and Claires dead body was on a morgue slab Ethan would
    not be easily implicated. This movie has a simple plot with convoluted structure by De Palma, It has the skeletal
    structure of the vintage tv show but not the style and personality with the mind bending scenarios of that
    great tv show. This simply wasn't the story I was expecting from De Palma. I just wonder how much control
    De Pama had over the writing? Harry Georgatos

    Simply a masterpice

    The first time I watched this movie, my thoughts included, "Huh?" "What?" and often "I'm SO confused!" But, enthralled by the flawless acting, I decided to watch it again. And again. And again. And again, until my thoughts of, "wait, I don't get it," were replaced by, "WOW! This is such a great movie!!!" Every time you watch this movie, you pick up more pieces of the intracate plotline, which is so complex that I, who have watched it countless times, am still learning new things. Even if you're not crazy about seamless plots of deceptions, betrayals, revenge... (I could go on and on) you will probably be on the edge of your seat wondering if Ethan Hunt will ever find out who framed him. Not only is the storyline flawless, the action is breathtaking. I mean, Tom Cruise dangling mere inches away from the ground as a drop of perspiration threatens to set off the security system? A helicopter navigating through a tunnel? In this movie, nothing is impossible.

    The Mission Impossible wasn't so impossible for Ethan Hunt!!!

    This movie was great! I didn't get to actualy see it till 2003. So, I saw Minority Report with Tom Cruise in it before I saw this. Both are great movies but Mission Impossible is, by far, the best one!!!!!

    Screw Woo

    John Woo should win an award for how masterfully he turned this potentially great franchise into a caricature of not only itself, but every other movie he's ever made. The orignal had intrigue, wit, and relavance that are long forgotten by Woo's old tricks in the sequel: a nice linear (read: predictable) plot, lots of pigeons, and hours of slow-motion. The sequel would have been 40 minutes long had he cut out the spinning-car scene. Stick with this first movie, an action movie that needs to be seen, but isn't as self-aware as its illegitimate younger brother.

    I love the movie!

    I'm a major Mission: Impossible fan. This movie is awesome. The action/adventure, the characters the plot (and tom cruise) makes this movies amazing. If this movie had anyother action but Tom, it still wouldn't be as good!
