This film talks about a group off secret agents and they spy many criminal people. The film is very fun and the missions are very dificult

Strengths: One thing this series has lacked so far is a compelling villain. That wasn't the case here. Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Owen Davian) is phenomenal. He's a guy who isn't physically intimidating, yet commands the screen and feels threatening because he's so confident in everything he does. It's a wonderful performance that makes an averagely written character into something much more. As I said in the last installment, Tom Cruise (Ethan Hunt) has figured out the character. It's even more of a case here. It's the best he's been and the most comfortable he's seemed in the role. Ving Rhames (Luther Stickell) was fun again, but what really helped was adding likable characters to the team who served a purpose. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Declan Gormley), Maggie Q (Zhen Lei), and Simon Pegg (Benju Dunn) embody that. Laurence Fishburne (Theodore Brassel) was another strong addition to the cast. I thought this plot was mostly laid out well and featured some great twists. At one point, I thought they telegraphed a twist too obviously, only to have it turn into a red herring, which I appreciated. As always, the action scenes were well done.

Weaknesses: It's nowhere near the level of part two, but this is another one with a thin female lead. Michelle Monaghan (Julia Meade) isn't bad in the role, but the character is nothing. She's simply just a love interest and damsel in distress. Though she gets one decent moment near the end, she's ultimately just motivation for Ethan. The final scene that wraps things up feels kind of out of place and it's a bit jarring.

Overall: J.J. Abrams came in and helped save this franchise. This was a big turning point thanks to a chilling performance by Hoffman, fun side characters, great action, and some really interesting plot twists.

"Mission Impossible 3" is the tease of great M:I movies to come.
½ March 9, 2019
This is so much better than the first 2. This is the formula that works.
February 26, 2019
An improvement over the the first two M:1 3 has great effects and a very strong story with a very good villain and with Tom Cruise at his best.

J.J Abrams was an inspired choice to direct this film, and for the most part it works well. The film was the last filmmaker styled Mission Impossible, after this they have become more action driven. The film works better when the team is working together, and sadly this film drops the support cast towards the later section. The stunts are one of a kind and Cruise never fails to amaze me. You can notice the film was rushed through pre-production, some of the characters aren't fully rounded and the twists are quite predictable. This is a more grounded film to MI2 and it works better on that level. I feel the filmmakers didn't watch some of the old tv shows for some guidance, and for the rest of the series we have been wandering from action scene to action scene. A good movie, but not the ground-breaking sequel everybody was looking for. 19/01/2019

J.J Abrams steps the pace and action up a notch with the third installment. With plenty of explosive action sequences and tense moments, this movie will not disappoint.
½ December 20, 2018
Abrams slick writing and direction and a chilling performance from Hoffman pulls the Mission Impossible name back out of obscurity
½ December 14, 2018
"M:I-3" is not only as electrifying as the first two, but also much darker and emotionally satisfying.
December 4, 2018
Probably would of given this a 5, but JJ likes shoving to many explosions into movies to fill the directorial holes he creates with his screenplay edits.

The Worst from the Mission Impossible franchise, if you ask me. Lacks good intense action scenes, and overall it's not a bad movie but the least enjoyable M:I film in my opinion.
November 19, 2018
Actionpacked with loads of special effects, it also delivers a good villain. But It's way to unrealistic and does not feel like a consistant plot. It's also quite predictable but still improves on M:I 2
November 11, 2018
At least in this one there is Philip Seymour Hoffman.
November 7, 2018
Awesome and action packed MI3 is a thrilling espionage film that boasts bigger action sequences, more character development and the same enjoyable storyline
½ October 18, 2018
Thrilling, action-packed, and a decent plot. I thought it was good, and thought-provoking. Tom Cruise has been stepping up his game with these series and delivers a worthy sequel that even fans of the franchise would enjoy. Really good so far. 8.6/10
