OK so my favorite Scientologist, Tom Cruise, is back in the role of agent Ethan Hunt. The third installment to “Mission: Impossible” is non-stop action.
As if it were set to a timer, every 15 minutes or so would feature a chase scene on foot, car or chopper, accompanied by an explosion, shoot-
out or fight between two or more people. What can you expect from star/producer Tom Cruise and director J.J Abrams of “Alias” and “Lost” fame?
The film opens to a path of visual and emotional destruction. Philip Seymour Hoffman is the bad guy you want in an action movie. He’s not the stupid Bond bad guy who lets the henchman do the dirty work. Hoffman was there holding the gun himself.
The cast includes a great line of supporting actors. Ving Rhames, Keri Russell of “Felicity” fame, Laurence Fishburne (“Matrix” trilogy), and even “Shaun of the Dead” star Simon Pegg makes an appearance.
So if Cruise isn’t your fancy maybe you’ll enjoy watching these and many other seasoned actors play a role in this film. They all make the non-action scenes go by faster, allowing you to get back to the explosions.
The story revolves around “The Rabbit’s Foot,” which is a code name for something Hoffman is trying to sell. Cruise is no longer a field agent; instead he is a teacher at the training academy and is newly married. Like any great spy movie, the retired agent must go back into the field for one last mission.
Ethan Hunt is back in the game. Hoffman captures his wife, played by Michelle Monaghan, and Hunt must not only save her but also the world.
Overall, I’d recommend you watch this in theaters. This movie is definitely worth your $8+ that you’re going spend out at the movies.
The only complaint I had about this place disappeared I saw the movie. Back in the day when I was young, Pacific Theatres sold Pink’s Hotdogs which were amazing. Now they’ve changed to Hebrew Nationals, which aren’t anywhere as good or as large, and they still cost $3.75! I’m not paying $3.75 for a hotdog unless it has the name “Dodger” in it. But today was different, since I saw the 11:20 p.m. showing and no one was there they announced two for one hotdogs. After buying my drink, I was intrigued to get two for one. Seeing that I wasn’t too interested the woman said three for one and I was sold. Upon hearing this my friend Jeorg-E wanted one so I ended up buying seven for $7.50. When will you ever see that? Never! That’s when.
