Mission: Impossible 3
BY adamatdramatrain superstar
Beats MI 1 and 2 into a cocked hat. Philip Seymour Hoffman is an inspired choice of bad guy and J. J. Abrams directs a solid action movie with some great set pieces that moves along at a fair lick and is never dull. Well worth watching again on DVD - at least to wipe away the sour taste of John Woo's sorry MI 2 mess...
THEN MI3 IS FOR YOU AND IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT DIRECTOR I AM TALKING ABOUT THEN MAKE SURE YOU TUNE INTO THE RIGHT CHANNEL AND STOP WATCHING SHORTLAND ST.
MI3 ROCKS, GREAT STORYLINE, COOL GADGETS, A REAL KICK ASS BADDY WITH HOFFMAN (HE MAKES IT REAL) AND YOU KINDA THINK KILL "CRUISE", BUT TOM ISNT TO BAD EITHER ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU KNOW HE DOES HIS OWN STUNTS.
2&HALF HOURS WILL FLY WITH THIS MOVIE SO LOAD UP ON THE... More POPCORN & COKE AND BE ENTERTAINED ......
& IF YOU WANTED MORE FROM "ABRAMS" HE HAS SIGNED ON TO DIRECT THE NEW STAR TREK MOVIE WHEN KIRK MEETS SPOCK @ THE SPACE ACADEMY - COOOOOOOL!!!!
(I WONDER WHO WILL PLAY A YOUNG SHATNER (THERE ARENT ENUFF FACE LIFTS TO GET AWAY WITH HIM REPRISING THAT ROLE)!!Hide
This movie has a total of 60 seconds of impressive action sequences (30 secs of which are in the trailer) and the rest is a bloody TV show. The class to this franchise started... More dissapearing in the second instalment and has completely left the earth's atmosphere after the third. You know its Hollywood at its best when Jonathan Rhys Myers (the brillaint actor from the even more brilliant Matchpoint) has close to 4 lines (all he does is, "copy this, copy that". And he even says this in the film!) and Mr. Cruise has an insane amount of close up shots.
Hoffman seems to have been in paycheck mode when he signed onto this and so was Fishbourne, both of whom have very little to do in the movie. And please, for f*** sakes dont go on about the death defying stuntwork that Cruise does himself!! The insurance folks wont let half a billion dollars do anything remotely death defying. With all the saftey chords and ten thousand people working on making sure nothing es wrong, I'd let my mother do the stunts. If you want to watch death defying stunts - WATCH A JACKIE CHAN MOVIE!
J.J. Abrhams should probably stick to TV 'cos there are moments in MI3 that make you feel like your watching a sequel to Brokeback Mountain. So much detail and effort seems to have ne into Cruise's close-ups and the lurve story that the makers didnt even bother to tell us what on bloody earth the rabbits foot was(everyone in the movie is chasing this!) The best part of going to watch this movie was the Pirates of the Carribean 2 trailer at the beginning. I'll stop now. I want my free admit one ticket back.Hide
