Based on the hit T.V. series. Jim Phelps was sent to Prague for a mission to prevent the theft of classified material. His wife Claire and his trusted partner Ethan Hunt were members of Phelps' team. Unfortunately, something went horribly wrong and the mission failed, leaving Ethan Hunt the lone survivor. After he reported the failed mission, Kettridge the head of the agency suspects Ethan of being the culprit for the failed mission. Now, Ethan uses unorthodox methods (Which includes the aid of an arms dealer going by the name "Max") to try to find who set him up and to clear his name. Written by
Apple Computer had a 15 million dollar promotion linked to the film that included a game, print ads and a television spot featuring scenes from the television show turned into a feature film; dealer and in-theatre promos; and a placement of Apple personal computers in the film. This was an attempt on Apple's part to improve their image after posting a 740 million dollar loss in its fiscal second quarter. See more »
(at around 1h 15 mins) Krieger throws a disk in the trash really hard and you can see a piece break off. When Ethan recovers it, it is good as new. See more »
I really liked this one. Not very much in common with the TV-series, and I can see why so many dislike it that way. But there are some REALLY good sequences here, and there is even one that I consider to be one of the very best and most suspenseful parts of any movie - the part where Cruise is in the vault. Beautiful and nerve-racking.
Not much else to say, though - it's an action movie, and it's a good one.
