Mission: Impossible III

Mission: Impossible III

While Brian DePalma's Mission: Impossible was a hell of an update to the legendary 60's spy saga, John Woo's Mission: Impossible 2 was, for lack of better terminology, a bloody mess. Thankfully, Paramount recruited a TV show creator by the name of J.J. Abrams, hot off of the success of his hit show Alias, to give the franchise the shot in the arm it deserved. From Mission: Impossible III's success, the series would not only find a visual style to latch onto for each of the succeeding films that came after, it also put the series on a trajectory that raised the bar with each of those subsequent films. Action-wise, you'll be treated to such highlights as a gun fight on the Cheaspeake Bay Bridge, some excellent action beats in Shanghai, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman hanging out of a cargo plane!
