  • ...this snappy installment is a marked improvement over John Woo's surprisingly dull sequel, though the set pieces lack the elegance and visual coherence of the Brian de Palma original.

  • There are plentiful perilous countdowns, most of the set-pieces are impressively mounted and, in its own silly way, the pay-off offers a glancing blow at US foreign policy. Relatable? No. But quite fun.

  • The summer's first action epic does exactly what it's supposed to do, more clearly than M:i:I, and more likeably than M:i:II.

  • As idiot movies go, this one is as sub-mental as you might expect.

  • My final reaction to Mission: Impossible III is one of bemused tolerance and even mild absorption in all the silliness.

  • There are no flourishes to savor. Instead, there are big-deal stunts.

Audience Reviews for Mission: Impossible III

  • Aug 16, 2016
    I would say it is the strongest entry of the first three Mission: Impossible films (the only ones I've seen to date). Even a decade later, it's strengths are still that which the franchise has always been known for, and its weakness are much the same. Much more akin plot-wise to the first film, M:I:III has the one advantage over its predecessors that it's villain is much stronger than any we have seen before. Though arguably not the primary antagonist, Seymour-Hoffman (RIP) is actually pretty terrifying as international arms dealer, Owen Davian. That said, while this third entry is certainly the most engaging thus far, it still had me checking my watch before the end of the movie, so I can hardly give it a glowing review.

    Easily not the best mission, but thanks to JJ Abrams direction and an absolute menacing performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman this movie is more than deserving of repeat viewings.
