Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A sleek, whooshingly entertaining update of the vintage television series.
Rotten: The most dour, sexless piece of escapism in memory.
Fresh: A sleek, stunningly made movie.
Fresh: Tom Cruise looks cool and holds our attention while doing neat things that we don't quite understand.
Great But what about the Soundtrack?
I thought this movie was fantastic, although I wish to trash i_tunes for not even having the soundtrack available. What the hell-a-roonie who picks what songs go up?
Out of place.
A silly, vastly inferior remake of Hitchcock's "Notorious", John Woo is considrably out of context with the series. Anthony Hopkins mentions this is not "Mission:Difficult", but that's exactly what this film was. Attach a flimsy virus sub-plot to the weak romance that hardly stands up to the likes of Cary Grant with Ingrid Bergman, and you have a wretched mess of things that ultimately appears to parody the series rather than continue it.
Its a well told action movie.
It may not be the smartest movie but its got great action scenes and a clearer story than the original. You should defenitly buy it.
