Newcomer director J.J. Abrams does his turn of directing Mission Impossible 3 with different writers this time, including the director himself, which they created a great movie that gets the series a bit back to the wheel. When it starts with a tense scene already that's effective, I knew that it was in good hands. Tom Cruise does a great job as an action hero, and can do drama very well. Some of the actors are pretty good, and some of them were just there and passable. There were some moments that I did find predictable, however, there are some great plot twists too that actually got me. The action scenes are thrilling to watch, and some of the humor got a chuckle out of me, even through there are some odd humor too. The past characters are still great, but some of the characters were just underdeveloped, except for the villain who's the best villain of the series so far. Granted the film doesn't give out enough backstory for him, but it's Philip Seymour Hoffman's performance that makes it a menacing and memorable character. As is, Mission Impossible 3 gives out some fine entertainment that would give action fans something to look forward to if they're bored.
