Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt in this pulse-pounding thrill ride directed by J.J. Abrams. Lured back into action by his agency superiors (Laurence Fishburne and Billy Crudup), Ethan faces his deadliest adversary yet - a sadistic weapons dealer named Owen Davian (Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman). With the support of his IMF team (Ving Rhames, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Maggie Q), Ethan leaps into spectacular adventure from Rome to Shanghai as he races to rescue a captured agent (Keri Russell) and stop Davian from eliminating his next target: Ethan's wife, Julia (Michelle Monaghan).

I'm not going into plot details, I hate reviews that go into endless details about the plot and don't actaully tell you what they thought of the film and anyway does the plot really matter in a film of this type.
I had high hopes for this movie, directed by jj (lost} Abrahams and other reviews that I had read gave it the thumbs up. So I sat down and waited in anticipation for the thrill ride to begin but alas an hour in and I was still waiting. Don't get me wrong this movie has action and plenty of it, it just feels that jj is so worried that the audience is going to get bored he seems more interested in teasing us with whats about to come rather than focusing on the now. What we are left with is a long film that feels jumpy, clunky and rushed but also lacking pace at the same time.
As for Mr Cruise, well it seems that his acting is getting worse the more films he makes, he needs to step outside himself and take a good long look at what he's doing.
Hopefully this is the last Mission Impossible, but it probably isn't, if another one is made, please get a decent director on board, its obvious that jj and Mr Woo can't direct proper stories for cherry.Bring back Brian De Palma.PLLLEEEAAASSSEE!!!!
So much better

There is such a step up from Mission Impossible 2. The plot is more fluent, the stunts more believable and more memorable. The most awesome of which is the fulcrum swing from one tower to another. You will most definitely be holding onto the glass roof for him. My sofa will need reupholstering. Even the little stunts are great, like running up the Vatican wall. Having a bomb up your nose made me wince, still not sure how the defibrillator works in stopping it but it is a very memorable moment.
