Product Description

The next installment in the Mission Impossible franchise. Super-spy Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) has retired from active duty to train n ew IMF agents. But he is called back into action to confront the toughest villain he's ever faced - Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoff man), an international weapons and information provider with no remorse and no conscience. Hunt assembles his team - his old friend Luther Strickell (Ving Rhames), transportation expert Declan (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), background operative Zhen (Maggie Q), and fresh recruit Lindsey (Keri Russell) - to travel the globe pursuing Davian and rescue Hunt's love, Julia (Michelle Monaghan).

From Amazon.co.uk

At the time of its release, Mission: Impossible 3 box office was plagued by the publicity backlash against couch-jumping star Tom Cruise. It's too bad, because this third installment of the spy thriller franchise deserved a better reception than it got. First-time feature director J.J. Abrams (bigwig TV director/producer of Lost, Alias, and Felicity) proves more than able-bodied in creating a Mission: Impossible that's leaner and less over-stylised than John Woo's sequel and less confusing than Brian De Palma's original. Plot is still a throwaway here (Cruise's Ethan Hunt rescues his kidnapped former trainee and works to steal a device that... well, we don't really know what it does, but it's something about mass destruction that costs $850 million), but the action sequences, particularly one where Ethan faces down a helicopter on a bridge and gets flung hard against the side of a car, are particularly impressive since Cruise, at 44, is still doing most of his own stunts and shows no hint of the weathered look that's struck his action-star peers. (Though no Mission: Impossible stunt will ever be quite as simultaneously nail-biting and funny as the first film's wire-dangling break-in of CIA headquarters.)

Mission: Impossible 3 boasts a pedigreed cast, particularly Oscar® winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) as baddie arms dealer Owen Davian. Hoffman plays Owen all teeth-clenched and cool, especially when threatening to kill Ethan in front of his lovely new wife (Michelle Monaghan) who has no idea of his spy life. But in his first action-film lead role, Hoffman's almost too calm and collected to really make a memorable villain, especially when the rest of the cast--Ving Rhames (the only other cast member to return for all three films), Asian film star Maggie Q, and an underused Jonathan Rhys-Meyers--are a highlight as Ethan's IMF team. Mission: Impossible is still fun popcorn spy fare, and if Cruise chooses to end the franchise here, at least he goes out on a high note. --Ellen A. Kim

...given the pseudo-macho-ego-out-of-control-fest that was the very average MI 2. As usual, it's good writing that saves the day and JJ Abrams does not let us down. True, there are some (alright, a lot) of moments which stretch credibility but hey, this isn't documentary it's CINEMA.

The charm of the first one was I suppose the intricacy of the plot and the sense of some sort of real-world grounding of the action, and whilst they don't really gun for that, there's enough intelligence to make it more than the simple 'Tom does Arnie' ethos of MI 2.

And fair play - there are some incredible moments - my heart was in my mouth when the Cruiser seems to actually leap off the top of a Chinese tower block. You know it's CGI, but it's still amazing.

Don't let MI 2 put you off, things are back on track here.

Great action from start to finish, Mission Impossible 3 is an exhausting film in which Tom Cruise delivers a great performance with his able team. The action scenes were very exciting, over the top and just fun to watch. I enjoyed it and would recommend it for those who like films of the action genre.

I first saw the trailer for M:I3 and yawned. I thought it would be another flashy and brainless stuntfest with a token villain. However, my experience of the film itself was different.

The first 'Mission Impossible' was a very good follow-on from the TV series, whereby a team of spies would carry out impossible assignments with pinpoint accuracy, timing, diversion and wit. The film version maintained this element, but it's plot was too contrived for some.

The second film was a different breed altogether and opted for gunblazing, high-kicking action and STILL managed to be quite dull.

Finally, the third 'Mission Impossible' comes to dvd and manages to be a perfect blend of the two styles aforementioned. This time, Ethan Hunt is about to tie the knot but has to spring into action and rescue his protege. His mission leads him to Owen Davian, a smart and ruthless arms dealer who is much more dangerous than Hunt gives him credit for.

The reason the film works so well, unlike the 2nd installment is because JJ Abrams knows how to keep the audience interested. Instead of having to wait a good 40 minutes for the action and set-pieces that we were promised, M:I3 kicks off with one big scene after another. However, there's so much more ingenuity and charm compared to the first two films in the way that the impossible missions are carried out. The biggest and most rewarding sequence takes place in the vatican and is a joy to watch and even reveals the technology behind the famous facemasks of Mission Impossible. Another exciting sequence is set in China where you expect a slow M:I2-like infiltration, which quickly turns into a frantic snatch-and-grab job.

The villain, Davian, is played brilliantly and doesn't need to rely on his strength to fight Hunt.

I bought this film with some amazon vouchers that I received for my birthday. The stunts in this film are absolutely breathtaking, especially in the 'Bridge Attack' scene. However, the film lacks a certain something, but with that said, Tom Cruise and Phillip Seymour-Hoffman's performances were really good.

The special extra's are really good, although some of them are a bit boring.

Over all, a cracking film which I thoroughly reccommend.

when i saw that jj abrams was going to direct this one i thought it was going to be alias on the big screen - which it was - but this isnt a bad thing...cruise reprises his role as ethan hunt and is excellent as usual in the lead role...ah, if only he hadnt been on oprah...michelle monaghan plays the love interest well and the always impressive ving rhames is back as luther. more of maggie q please in this type of role...she is stunning and kicks some serious butt as part of ethan hunt's team. its philip seymour hoffman though that steals the show as the bad guy - he should do more of this - the opening scene between him and tom cruise is excellent and sets up the rest of the film as a roller coaster ride of excitement - if action is your thing then get this, but dont expect to see the same as the first mission impossible - which for me is still the best of the 3 with a perfect blend of action, drama and thrills.

Ethan Hunt has retired from active duty to train new IMF agents. But he is called back into action to confront Owen Davian, an international weapons and information provider with no remorse, or conscience.

Hunt assembles his team, friend Luther Strickell, transportation expert Declan, and background operative Zhen.

They are to rescue one of his own trainees, Lindsey, who was kidnapped while on a surveillance detail of Davian.

It soon becomes evident that Davian is well-protected, well-connected, and malicious.

This forces Hunt to extend his journey back into the field in order to rescue his wife, Julia, and uncover IMF double agents in the process.....l

After the huge Mis-step that was number 2, Abrams and Cruise finally bring a Mission Impossible film that is easy to understands, and makes complete and utter sense of the narrative.....but only if you take away all the Rabbits Foot malarkey.

Hoffman is a truly menacing villain, and makes the film just that little more sinister than it should be. In other hands, the movie, franchise even, would be peppered with pantomime villains in the vein of Moore's Bond era, but here, it's pretty hard hitting stuff.

Hoffman aside though, it is your typical big summer blockbuster. It's stunning to look at, has some maguffin that never gets used or spoken about much, but is an excuse for the cast to go to some amazing locations around the world.

But the two greatest achievements that this film has are completely forgetting that Mission Impossible ever existed, and the inclusion of some genuine laugh out loud humour.

What other film would feature Cruise escaping from IMF with 'We Are Family' by Sister Sledge playing in the background.

Exciting, good looking, and the kickstart the franchise needed.
