What used to be an IMF team effort turned into another star vehicle for Tom Cruise.

De Palma has a choppy, episodic sense of story, and he crafts individual scenes rather than telling a single unified story.

It's a mission De Palma shouldn't have chosen to accept.

Nimble, expertly contrived summer entertainment that doesn't insult the intelligence.

The most dour, sexless piece of escapism in memory.

Unlike most action films, Mission: Impossible's distinct appeal operates not so much on suspense but on improbability.

Despite the snags, De Palma remains a virtuoso puppet-master, pulling the strings taut in a nail-biting robbery sequence, switching from micro to macro with Hitchcockian panache, and finally letting rip with a hell-for-leather climax.

Mission: Impossible helps remind us why the 1990s was such a powerhouse decade for great movies.

...succeeds in offering up several exciting and suspenseful sequences, though one can't help but wish that the dialogue-based moments packed the same sort of punch.

Each scene in and of itself plays very interestingly, even if they don't always logically lead one into the next scene.

An incredibly boring and confusing espionage thriller...So inept on so many levels that it could easily be called The Bonfire of the Secret Agents.

Unfortunately, two scenes and a screwed up script, plus a big plot disappointment, do not a recommendation make.

Check your brain at the door, wallow in the special effects, and ride it out until September when good old-fashioned action will once again prevail.

Great start, but the movie keeps fighting its own internal logic.
