You know what you are getting with the mission impossible movies, action and lots of it. I personally prefer the first movie but none of the three are unwatchable by a long way.

The HD-DVD release comes on a total of four discs MI:1 and MI:2 on one disc and MI:3 on two.

As far as picture quality goes the more recent the films were made the better the quality. MI:3 is reference quality and comes with many many extras including a video commentary which is not included on the bluray version of the movie.

The quality of MI:1 is less impressive but is still well above any other release of the movie in picture quality.

Overall a great box set that gives lots of action and a great way to show off the HD-DVD format.

Coming off of the back of the viewing of the very average Blu-ray Matrix Trilogy set that I recently reviewed, this Mission Impossible Trilogy Blu-ray set felt like a bit of light relief to be honest. It's really rather good, and quite unlike 99% of other motion picture trilogies in many respects. Let me break it down for you.

Mission Impossible:

This slightly claustrophobic 1996 release seems strangely low-key by modern day standards. The majority of the film played out in confined areas, lift-shafts, ventilation systems, sealed rooms - even the finale involves a train going into a tunnel. All of the action and major (very impressive) CGI elements happen in just the 3 to 4 main action scenes in the movie - reminiscent perhaps of 2006's Casino Royale in that respect, but like Casino Royale they are all handled really beautifully.

It's a rather simple cloak and dagger style spy/espionage picture, with it's fair share of twists and turns to keep you guessing what's coming next. In truth it's not particularly great and is maybe lacking in a few more human elements, like nearly all 90's action movies it's aged alarmingly quickly - but it's still a solid beginning to the Mission Impossible film universe. Cruise does just about enough to keep the momentum going with his enigmatic performance, and excels in doing his own stunt work, which still looks great.

These 3 films will be well known to most people as a fun franchise with 3 excellent directors all putting their own stamp on the material. Tom Cruise delivers 3 very good performances and the pace and action set pieces are all very good. The 1st Movie is as slick as any of them and very stylish. The cast are excellent and it stands up to repeat viewings. The issue I have is with the transfer to blu-ray. The Sound is compressed Dolby Digital 5.1 and the picture is quite noisy and soft. This is a 1996 film so when you consider what they have been able to do with the 1960s films like Dr No and 2001 this is very disapointing. Indeed this is true of all 3 films but MI III does look superb. Whilst that soundtrack is also DD 5.1 it's as good as I have heard for a compressed soundtrack. It's also a great watch. The third disk also has a good selection of extras. The middle disk is considered to be the weakest of the 3 films and does suffer slightly from style over content. It's very John Woo so yes amazing photography, stunning locations and stylish slo-mo action almost balletic.

It's therefore a shame that again the picture is quite weak on this; showing a lot of compression and noise in some scenes and in this case the soundtrack as well is quite underwhelming compared to what is possible with the format. The pre title sequence of the rock climbing is a good example with a lot of noise in the blue sky and a lack of dynamism in the music. it also falls in the middle in terms of extra features.

So 3 good films 2 very good but 2 disappointing disks. Worth adding to your collection and a slight upgrade from the DVDs but I really think they could have done much better.

Recently, I've been accusing myself of watching too much of and too serious movies - art house, World; serious, worthy, Oscar-winning, you know the sort.

I needed a holiday from those and to leave my brain elsewhere, at least for a few hours, to save it from self-implosion. Enter the Mission Impossible series of movies - ones I'd seen before and one (the second) at the cinema.

What's good about them is they're not stupid; far-fetched, yes but not in a completely moronic, absolutely ridiculous way and they feature some great, well known and recognisable actors. Tom Cruise, Jon Voight, Vanessa Redgrave, Kristen Scott-Thomas and Jean Reno - and that's just the first film - all make for great viewing, a pleasure to watch and to focus on if the actions slips, or should we lose concentration.

Those last two things are unlikely to happen, though - these are essentially James Bond's in different clothing, niftly directed by top directors - Brian de Palma, John Woo and JJ Abrams, three of the biggest action flick makers working today.

Those old enough will be familiar with the M:I theme tune, that needs no introduction once we hear the first few notes and even the remixes used for the end credits sound pretty good!

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), though, isn't Jason Bourne and MIP's aren't quite at the level of smart sophistication of the Bourne quadrilogy, but are more fun and accessible and share Europe for the locations, making them a fast-paced and rather daring whistle-stop tour of our EU neighbours' finest cities. This makes a nice, more local change to all those action movies set in L.A. and Chicago etc.

The set is housed in a stout card slipcase and the discs come in separate slim-line cases.
