Mission: Impossible (1996)

Written By Awir Aditya on Sunday, December 11, 2011 | 11:09 PM


Genre: Action/Crime/Mystery

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jon Voight, Emmanuelle Beart, Henry Czerny, Jean Reno, Ving Rhames, Vanessa Redgrave

The Impossible Missions Force (IMF) is a secret wing of the CIA whose agents try to execute operations that are otherwise impossible for regular agents. Agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team are preventing an American diplomat in Prague from stealing the CIA's non-official cover (NOC) list which would reveal the identities of all their agents and spies in eastern Europe. Hunt's entire team goes down in the operation, except himself and Agent Claire Phelps (Beart). The IMF Director Kittridge (Czerny) reveals that the entire operation was a hoax to spot a mole in the IMF and the actual NOC list was safe in Langley. The IMF suspects Hunt to be the mole and is now wanted by his own boss. The movie was conceived from a famous television series where Agent Hunt was the main protagonist of the show, trying to fulfill the hardest of missions. The movie attempts at being a modern day James Bond who performs the most insane of stunts that you could ever imagine. The climax action-sequence atop the TGV is a bit too hard to imagine with choppers inside tunnels pushing things a bit too far. Overall, a great action movie which needs a more spicy storyline to make it even better

Thumbs up: Tom Cruise, the break-in scene inside the CIA headquarters
Thumbs down: A slightly bland plot with hard to imagine action sequences

Rating: 7.0/10
