Mission: Impossible

Scarface director Brian de Palma teams up with Tom Cruise for this high-octane spy flick that spawned five sequels.

When Ethan Hunt (Cruise), the leader of a crack espionage team whose perilous operation has gone awry with no explanation, discovers that a mole has penetrated the CIA, he's surprised to learn that he's the number one suspect. To clear his name, Hunt now must ferret out the real double agent and, in the process, even the score.

The most dour, sexless piece of escapism in memory.

Despite the snags, De Palma remains a virtuoso puppet-master, pulling the strings taut in a nail-biting robbery sequence, switching from micro to macro with Hitchcockian panache, and finally letting rip with a hell-for-leather climax.

...although Cruise and his team offer solid performances, the action outweighs the acting and you can see why the film was nominated for a Razzie Award for 'Worst Written Film Grossing Over $100 Million'.

As Mr. Cruise finds himself desperately clawing across the top of a speeding train with a helicopter in pursuit and a tunnel coming up, "Mission: Impossible" catapults you into the wildest movie ride of the year.

Tom Cruise looks cool and holds our attention while doing neat things that we don't quite understand.

If you unravel it, it won't fit back in the plot. But it doesn't matter a jot. This is, for the most part, enormous fun. You will not be disappointed.
