Movie synopsis
Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt, leader of a crack squad of intelligence operatives, in this labyrinthine action-thriller based on the hit 1960s-'70s television series. When a dangerous mission in Prague goes inexplicably wrong, Hunt finds himself out in the cold. A mole has infiltrated the CIA, and suspicions are that it's Hunt. His only chance: Find out who the real mole is and turn the tables. The plan takes him on an incredibly suspenseful infiltration of CIA security, leading to a spectacular chunnel climax that would make Hitchcock proud. Thanks to crisp, inventive direction from Brian De Palma and Danny Elfman's dynamite electronica score (including a catchy update of the original Lalo Schifrin theme), this mission is great fun. The talented roster of stars backing Cruise includes Ving Rhames, Vanessa Redgrave, John Voight, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Jean Reno. A witty script by Robert Towne (CHINATOWN, SHAMPOO) and David Koepp keeps the ball rolling in unexpected directions, with the paranoia always set to high. A box-office record-setter during its original release, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE led to a well-deserved sequel, also with Cruise and Rhames.

I bought "mission Impossible" on eBay

Well, first off, I decided to buy "Mission Impossible" on DVD, because I came across a great copy on "MI2" on DVD at a pawn shop, and I really like to have both the original movie, plus any sequels, in my collection. So, naturally, I fired up the computer and headed to eBay. After a little searching, I came across a copy that had a reasonable bid. I bid on it, and needless to say I won the auction. The movie arrived and as usual with Tom Cruise in it, it was very good. Full of action and a great story line, this one is sure to be a hit with Tom Cruise and action movie fans alike!

Awesome Movie

The first Mission Impossible is probably the best movie in the series so far. It's got a bunch of great twists and it's the only one of the three to keep you guessing until the end. It made you think a lot while watching it while also showing how great an actor Tom Cruise is. This movie also has one of Jon Voight's better performances in recent memory. Definitely recommend this one to anyone who wants to see a great action movie that will make you think. TWO THUMBS UP!!!

If you like the TV show...don't buy this!!

First off, before anyone gets mad, let's say this is a decent film. Brian DePalma is one of the best in Hollywood at making the audinece sit on he edge of their seat for the duration of the film.

If this was a stand-alone movie and not "Mission: Impossible" I probably would have enjoyed it. BUT...to take the entire premise of the Mission Impossible series and totally ruin here makes me upset.
I grew up watching Mission and totally enjoyed the intrigue and mystery of each plot twisting episode. Each member of the team was a crucial part of the complete Mission.

In the movie, some of the team members look inept and most of the team is wiped out in the beginning. The worst part of the whole film, is tht they take Jim Phelps (Jon Voight..sorry plot revealed here) and make him the bad guy. How can you make the leader of the team the bad guy. Please come up with a more interesting plot. This totally ruins the entire TV series.

The sequels aren't much better.

The Original

Just like the original TV series but rather slow moving throughout. There are a few tense and suspenseful moments but nothing can compare to the thrilling climax aboard the high speed train. Tom Cruise stars in and produces the next 2 sequels. Worthwhile viewing entertainment.

Vanessa Redgrave Plays Max

There's only one reason I even entertained the idea of watching a movie with Tom Cruise starring in it: Vanessa Redgrave has a key role. As such, she plays it well as Max, the ring leader or mastermind of an organization that's not exactly on the level (to put it mildly).

I love the way Redgrave takes on such diverse characters. Max is certainly leaps and bounds different from other roles she's played. However, her character's name being traditionally considered more masculine than not, isn't foreign to Redgrave. She has easily passed as a man in various types of roles. I was hoping to see another one when I read she played the role of Max. But, in this film, Max is definitely a woman. (An attractive one at that!).

Sorry folks, I still can't stomach the arrogance of Cruise. If it didn't come through his characters that would be another thing altogether. But, because it does I feel that's a shortcoming in his ability to act in character, leaving his own personality off screen~
