Mission: Impossible III Reviews

This is a movie that is already slipping out of my mind and will probably never be revisited - or even thought about - again.

There is a theory that action is exciting and dialogue is boring. My theory is that variety is exciting and sameness is boring.

Mission: Impossible III provides lots of action, but too little excitement.

On the menu tonight: a big helping of Cruise's ego.

Had a pop artist handled this, the franchise could have had its On Her Majesty's Secret Service; with machines directing machines, however, it's closer to its Live and Let Die

The sad truth is that Ethan will always be better at saving the world than saving his marriage and fans of the first two films are likely to find the agent's journey of the heart an unwelcome distraction

Shallow to its core and as propulsive as a runaway locomotive, it's the most blatantly summer movie-ish of the Mission Impossibles.

This will not be seen as a disappointment like the last one was, but it is not much of an advance either -- even if it is in the right direction

While there's nothing wrong with M:I III... I found myself wondering if we really needed to bother getting off the couch for it.

Although he slams into stationary objects with his customary zeal, Tom Cruise is off his game here, sabotaged by a misguided attempt to shade his character with gray.

Without an outsize directorial vision it looks even more like sub-007 than the others did.

Abrams knows how to frame a shot and how to propulsively push both action and love stories, but logic continues to elude him as much as it did De Palma and Woo.

Cruise is the same guy with the same look on his face all the time: part panic, part adrenaline rush, his eyes lightly squinting and his mouth slightly agape.

Fun to watch but ultimately empty, Tom Cruise has found his most fitting metaphor in MI:3.

This time, the balance has been tipped, and it isn't in Tom Cruise's favor.

A dark film filled with improbable stunts and unbelievable plot developments that uses women as props and objects just to keep the mayhem and the momentum going full tilt.

The movie leaves you no sense of reward for having paid attention and everything might as well have been one large dream sequence.

It might have enough flash to please those who crave such entertainment films and don't mind if the story is nonsensical.

The single admirable attribute of 'Mission: Impossible III' is the technical expertise that goes into the making of the action sequences. Aside from that, [it's] ordinary and forgettable.
