Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt, a secret agent framed for the deaths of his espionage team. Fleeing from government assassins, breaking into the CIA's most impenetrable vault, clinging to the roof of a speeding bullet train, Hunt races like a burning fuse to stay one step ahead of his pursuers...and draw one step closer to discovering the shocking truth.

Action packed and with a complex plot, Mission Impossible is a slick, glossy spy thriller with good performances from Tom Cruise and Emmanuelle Béart. Watch out for the large shattering fish tank in Prague.

Good but not the best
- Mission Impossible review by JD
Having seen the sequels has spoilt me. This is a good film with tons of plot and great action. Cruise is an unsurpassed action hero, but some of the other actors are a little passed their best before date. The helicopter dodging trains in a tunnel is a little unbelievable. The best scene is breaking into the CIA vault. The moment where his sweat runs onto the glasses, the drop sensitive floor inches below, I have seen many times it is a spy drama classic. Nevertheless I could hardly stay still on the sofa. If you haven't seen it recently definitely worth a repeat.
Totally implausible. Amazing how the technology always works. No fading signals, no fuse blowing , no wrong switches thrown and as for the helicopter in the tunnel episode. Total nonsense! Enjoyed it all immensely!
