L: max314 Just saw this in IMAX. Wow, what a rush! Easily the best one since DePalma's, which I still hold up as the gold standard of : Impossible : Impossible IIIlid. i] was pretty embarrassing. Go see this. still think de Palma's movie was a bit slow and boring. And again they ruined the movie by showing the money shot of the explosion in the tunnel in the trailer. I agree that MI2 did add gunplay, because after all we need a mixture of wits and disguise, but we  More

RE: RE:
L: Private Hudson I actually liked part 3 the best. Part 2 was fun but a bit too daft with OTT John Woo action scenes which work for other films like the superb Face/Off but not a traditional spy flick. men to that! Pout of the three films, i love MI:3 the most. It was more gritty, more violent, in your face and of course there was Maggie Q in THAT dress!! Part 2? What a load of boll*cks! Part 1? Good. Not excellent. A bit slow in parts. Looks a bit dated watch More

L: Shifty Bench Ebert likes to spoil films in his reviews. He spoiled Super in the very first paragraph of his review. oted! Will be giving his site a miss from now on he RT score for this is incredibly impressive now! 94% with 78 reviews counted.

Part 1 was okay but I do feel this was one of the worst culprits for showing us the climax of the movie in the trailer. And the lack of guns being used (a De Palma decision) didn't help the movie.
