Well even before the title I was absorbed into this third impossible mission. We start with a flashback, where things have clearly hit their peak in a mission that seems to have gone incredibly wrong, then were back in present time where things are at it’s happiest for Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), he’s engaged! Let the mission begin: what started off as a search and rescue becomes a lot more than that. Plus, his fiancé knows nothing of his spy tales.
This Mission Impossible may have just topped the first and second. This third movie of the series is jam-packed with so much action, it’s even more explosive, there’s more fights, it’s non-stop action –there may be 15 minutes throughout the whole movie that isn’t. This really is a brilliant action movie, the plot was interesting, the villain was fantastic, the action was explosive and the twists were shocking. A lot happens in this film, like the others there’s layers to build the action in the plot, but this one seems to have a lot more to it with action in every section.
Played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, the villain of the film is the best one so far! It doesn’t seem like the mission is easy, because this man doesn’t hold back. His sadistic twisted ways portray Ethan Hunt at his most desperate. We see as there are helicopter chases, missiles fired, arrests and jumping out of windows and off roofs. Additionally, Simon Pegg is in this movie and he does make me giggle even at a time of peril for Ethan Hunt.
‘Mission: Impossible III’ is a brilliant action movie. I’ve enjoyed this one more than the other two. So far (as I’m watching them in order for the first time), I would rank this one top, the first second and the second last. It was nice to see Ethan Hunt in a different light of a normal family life, but always returning to his spy ways and this film just brought bigger and better explosive action. Obviously, with the excellence of the use of faces alike to the first two films, but this time we get an insider peak of how they are made.
