Tom Cruise ignites the screen in this runaway smash hit that "holds you on the edge of your seat before blasting you out of it." (Howard Rosenberg, Los Angeles Times). 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.

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.
WoW! That was absolutely brilliant, exciting and smart!
They need a ten star rating system just so I can give this movie a TEN!!! I remember seeing this a few years ago, and I don't remember it being so D amn Exciting!! The ending is just magnificent, powerful stuntwork, camera shots, and acting that made the action look totally pure,... and I love the theme song to this especially the special mix they put together to go right along with that magnificent ending I just mentioned. Man, it's got me all worked up now,... I know they wouldn't let me move around doing those funky moves I just finished doing when I was (I guess you could call it dancing) "dancing" to that funky beat they put into the "Mission Impossible" theme song, in a movie theater. Wow! That ending!! Did I mention how great it was? Sssheeeewww. I've never thought more of Tom Cruise as an actor, and a producer for that matter, than right now. I was studying his every move, especially his face, he is just a "F"ing great actor. He is so believable as "that" character he happens to be playing at the time. I loved this film. I recommend everybody,... check it out... again! if you've seen it before. I usually write long reviews but I'll just leave this one alone right here. Peace everybody!!!
Two Thumbs up
The Mission Impossible series is one of the best in movies. Tom Cruise is an excellent actor in the first and third movies. The mystery of the movie is mind bending as your on your toes waiting to see what's going to happen. The action is intense. The ending is great. This is a must see movie!!
This was a great addition to the "spy genre" pf movies. MI 2 was terrible, but MI 3 came back and was pretty good. But this is a good suspense-filled, story driven movie, and is a great addition to anyone's collection.
