Ethan Hunt (Cruise), retired from active duty and recently engaged to the lovely Julia (Monaghan), returns to action when an IMF agent he trained is captured. but when Hunt’s attempts to snare evil arms dealer Owen Davian (Hoffman) that goes violently wrong,events spirals back toward the innocent Julia, who suffers under the illusion her fiancé works in transport.
An inspired middle-hour pumped by some solid action gives you an idea how good the franchise could be, but we now live in a post-Bourne, recalibrated-Bond universe, where Ethan Hunt looks a bit lost.
