Mission Impossible 4
December 10, 2011 by staff
Mission Impossible 4, The ”Mission Impossible” franchise is a bit like the family Christmas tree. You pull it out of cobwebs, stick some pretty things on it, even add a star, but at the end of the day, it’s still the same old piece that’s on display.
In the case of ”Mission Impossible”, that same old piece isn’t so bad – as a trustworthy plumber will tell you, if it aint broke, don’t fix it.
Still, some new pretty things and bells & whistles added to the old thing do go down as well macadamia nuts on a vanilla cone. Tasty on its own, even better with the sprinkles.
Brian De Palma’s feature film adaptation of the iconic TV series came out a time when Tom Cruise could do no wrong (heck, in 1996 even Mel Gibson and John Travolta were making movies people actually wanted to see). This was before all the scientology sermonize, before he stole Joey from Dawson, an before he learnt couches had springs. Tom Cruise was a major movie star in 1996. And he picked a good one to flaunt his likeability in too with “Mission : Impossible”.
“M:I” was a slick, suspenseful ride with a couple of killer moments (the whole “dangling above the floor” sequence has become part of pop culture), an amazing ensemble cast (Jon Voight, Jean Reno, Ving Rhames, Emanuelle Beart, Kristin Scott Thomas, Emilio Estevez!) backing up the most popular name in popcorn cinema, and proficient direction from that old pro De Palma.
