I am a big fan of this movie but there's nothing special about this, so-called "Collector's Edition" which only seems to have been issued in order to have something tied up for the release of MI3.

There are a few short clips on how the incredible set pieces were made but no new interviews, deleted scenes, commentaries, etc. The featurettes included are as shallow as they can get. This is too bad given the many years we had been waiting for a special edition of this movie. Compare this to the incredible SEs Fox has been issuing of movies such as the Poseidon Adventure, Towering Inferno, Nine to Five, Planet of the Apes, etc. and it feels like somebody at Paramount ought to be fired.

Mission-Impossible, the 1996 stylish thriller directed by Brian DePalma and starring Tom Cruise, is a fun and engaging movie that is a joy to watch. The movie clocking in at a very fast paced one hour and 50 minutes, features incredible stunts and some excellent supporting actors. The stars include Jean Reno, Jon Voight, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ving Rhames, and Vanessa Redgrave. This former summer blockbuster, the successful film that inspired to sequels, is well-worth revisiting. It is an enjoyable and complex romp that is very memorable. A four star thrill ride!

I don't quite get the bad reviews for this film. Its one of my All-Time favorites, and sure, it takes brains to follow the storyline. Yeah? So? I think that you have become to accustomed to action movies with no stories, just people getting blown up. This movie centers around Ethan Hunt (Cruise) an IMF agent sent on a mission in Keiv. The mission goes wrong and its up to Ethan to figure out what happened. He soon finds himself trying to keep a IMF NOC list from getting into the wrong hands. But whose hands are those? This movie does involve some thinking, and you may have to view it a few times to truly appreciate, but isn't that what a great movie does? You pick up new things every time you view. The movie stars Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Jon Voigt in a great role and other well known actors and actresses.

It's been well over 10 years since I first saw "Mission: Impossible"; and it's just as good as I remember it. The story, gadgets and the Brian De Palma touch impart upon the story a sense of playfulness and foreboding, especially in the early parts. There's definitely a sense that the characters are whistling in the dark. On the other hand, as dark as things do get at times, there is an inherent brightness and levity to the movie that never lets it (or the protagonists or the viewer) fall too far. For all the danger and betrayal in the story, there's also loyalty and trust. Highly recommended.

I've seen all the Mission Impossibles by Tom Cruise multiple times. This one had the benefit of novelty when it came out so I liked it best until the first half of the newest Mission Impossible (2015). Even in retrospect it stands up pretty well for a fantasy action-adventure spy thriller. Many scenes are unbelievable or outright impossible, but that's not the point. It's fun to watch Tom Cruise try to rehabilitate himself after being disavowed and the opening scenes where he loses his team remain gripping. The film manages to maintain suspense even as Cruise slowly unravels the plot against him.

The movie itself is great, but the blu ray isn't very good. It is quite grainy in some scenes and you can clearly see imperfections of the film in certain shots. I have some DVDs that look equally good when "upscaled" in my Panasonic BDT210... Long story short, I doubt most people would see a difference from the DVD version for a fraction of the cost.

Is there a place for time proven methods and principles in today's society? This is a message that is part of the subtext of Mission: Impossible. The film deals with a changing world and how people cannot always change with the world around them. Sometimes the decisions that have to be made lead people to new careers while some people are able to adapt to the changing world within their lives.

Over time Mission: Impossible has held up to be a successful example of a film adaption of a television series. Though the production of this film was troubled in finding it's direction and focus. Once Brian De Palma was brought on as director, he was able to alleviate these issues. The production team was able to take a concept and vague character profiles from the television series from the 1960s and translate into an engaging espionage thriller.

The story follows an American espionage agent (Tom Cruise) who is framed after his team is killed during a mission. He has to unravel the plot against him and prove his innocence without the support of his government. The film also features Jon Voight, Vanessa Redgrave, Ving Rhames, Jean Reno, Kirsten Scott Thomas and Emilio Estevez. The film's plot is in constant motion. It does not stagnate for long and the film does not stop telling the story to hold the viewer's hand to keep up with the plot twists.

This film was the first time that Tom Cruise displayed his action star potential. It not only solidified him as an A-list actor but also someone who could be the forerunner for a franchise. He had to display a different range of acting, as at the time a movie such as this was unexplored territory for him; as well as learn to develop physical abilities for his roles which has continued to the present day.. While the direction of the franchise has been doubted throughout it's course this installment set it on it's path.
