Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
A man named Owen Davian kills an IMF agent that was sent undercover by the legendary Ethan Hunt, who has retired from combat missions. Hunt now has a fiancé, Julia, who believes that he works for the traffic department when he really trains younger IMF agents to go into combat. He is assigned to his last mission. His mission, should he choose to accept it is to capture Davian, who is selling a toxic weapon called the rabbits foot. But Davian is reckless, cruel, and deathly. He promises Hunt that he will find Julia, hurt her, and Ethan will be too dead to help her. The mission is no more different to others, its dangerous, smart, and impossible; but now it's personal.
While the producers signed on J.J. Abrams as director in August 2004 after Joe Carnahan's departure, the film was abruptly delayed for at least a year due to Tom Cruise's commitment to the abruptly green-lit War of the Worlds (2005). The production was delayed until Summer 2005, causing the film to be released in 2006. Abrams was hired after Cruise saw episodes of the Abrams series Alias (2001) on DVD and was impressed.

(at around 50 mins) When Ethan put eye lenses in Vatican we can see veins on his hands. When Luther puts a mask on his face and says "congratulations", Ethan grabs him with his hands and veins disappeared. See more »

The fun, the adventure, the creativity, never ease up
In this third film of the series, Ethan Hunt has retired from the field, and is training new agents . His sweetheart Julia (Michelle Monaghan) thinks he works for the Department of Transportation
When one of his pupils is kidnapped by a sadistic arms dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Hunt decides to assemble his old team to retrieve her, putting in mortal danger his new love
J.J. Abramsin his first feature filmshot "Mission: Impossible III" with a sense of timing and suspense We're dealing with full-flash blanks, glass breaking, explosions And we see Hunt, in a quite interesting shot, running up a wall to enter the Vatican Also, in the bridge sequence, he runs away from a rocket hit on one of the vehicles It's cool because the way he's running, the look on his face, before, during and after that impact could only have been done only by an actor as good as him In China, in an old fishing village, we see him jumping off tile rooftops, with incredible grace, precision, coordination and footwork Then, with Lindsey Farris (Keri Russell) they jump out of a building on a cable landing on a truck
The special effects, and visual effects are great They all work together... The Shanghai street chase with Tom leaning out of the car at some insanely dangerous angle to shoot a gun under a truck; Also Tom, in a high-speed boat, on the Tiber River in Rome, Italy; the blowing of a nice spectacular sports car; and, of course, the helicopter chase sequence where, in pursuit, the bad-guy helicopter emerges out of a fireball
Also, in a fantastic shot, in Shanghai, China, when the camera comes in and then goes around Tom as he's standing on top of a Shanghai roof The camera comes over his shoulder and look down at the ground, so we'll see Tom on the top of the Shanghai building, hundreds feet in the air, and just to show and set up the jeopardy of what he's about to accomplish
Well, I loved the director's work He's so detail-oriented The fun, the adventure, the creativity, never eased up
And, please, don't miss Colleen Atwood, entering the Vatican, with a head-turner red dress
