Mission Impossible

Ok.  I’m not a Tom Cruise freak or anything, I just had to get my thoughts out on this…

I’ve seen Mission Impossible a handful of times.  I don’t know why.  It seems like every time, there’s some part I miss and I end up not fully understanding the plot.  I mostly just enjoy Ving Rhames. 

Mission Impossible 2 I’ve only seen once.  I so thoroughly disliked it, I knew it wouldn’t pull me in again like the first one.  It could’ve been the director, John Woo-known for other greats like Chu Ba and The Robinsons: Lost in Space.  I really don’t know..it just didn’t do anything for me.  Except that first scene with the rock climbing, that was OK.

Tonight, I watched the 3rd installment.   I’m a little late on this one, it came out in ’06.  I just never thought it was worth it.  Boy was I wrong!  What a thrill ride.  I actually yelled at the actors to do stuff (then laughed at myself).  What got me watching was the fact that Philip Seymour Hoffman is in the cast.  I’m a big fan, and for some reason he’s all over the place these days, right?  Secondly, it was directed by J.J.Abrams, mostly known for co-creating LOST.  Way better than a nutty action director. 

OK, so if you’re having a slow night, go rent Missions Impossible 1 & 3, then tell me what you think.
