After he is framed for the death of several colleagues and falsely branded a traitor, a secret agent embarks on a daring scheme to clear his name in this spy adventure. Though it drew its name from the familiar television series, director Brian DePalma's big-budget adaptation shares little more with the original show than the occasional self-destructing message and the name of team leader Jim Phelps (Jon Voight). The film focuses not on Phelps but his protege, Ethan Hunt (a reserved Tom Cruise), who becomes a fugitive after taking the blame for a botched operation. He responds by banding together with a group of fellow renegades, and he is soon maneuvering his way through a twisted series of double crosses that mainly serve as excuses for spectacular high-tech action sequences. Much of the activity revolves around a missing computer disk, with the film's most famous scene depicting Hunt's delicate efforts to retrieve the disk from a secure, well-alarmed room in CIA headquarters.

Stupid story. Silly cinematography. A total waste of time and an insult to the original series.

Well, you can't beat that Lalo Schifrin sound track.

Google "Tom Crooze" for a laugh with Ben Stiller.

With Tom Cruise not only being the star of this film, but also its co-producer, as well, his gross earnings for this production amounted to $70 million. I don't know what you think about that, but I think it's absolutely criminal, considering what my opinion is of Cruise and this disappointing picture._____ I think that this movie completely disgraced the original, 1960s TV Series that it borrowed its title (and theme music) from. The fact that the show's most respected and trusted character, Jim Phelps, was turned into a traitor for the sake of a flimsy plot served the TV show a great dishonor._____ I felt really cheated that it was never revealed who was behind the making of all those fabulous, life-like face masks that Cruise's character often slipped into on a moment's notice without anyone's assistance._____ All-in-all - Mission: Impossible was the epitome of absolute preposterousness with there being just too many plotholes, and the likes, for me to bother to get into here.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Other: Mild language and violence, including stabbings and shootings, with a lot of blood. One person is crushed in an elevator shaft (though we barely miss seeing it), and one scene shows someone being briefly crammed between a forward moving helicopter and the ground. A lot of cleavage is shown in some points.
