Mission Impossible 3

Loved it!

You might want to take advantage of the few times during this nail-biter that you will have to unclench and breathe, you'll need them. Outstanding FX blitz and it contained enough twists to the usual MI story line to keep you entertained and thrown off the crystal ball predictions.

Cruise may be a middle of the road actor in most other roles but he owns this one completely; he is Ethan Hunt. I actually look forward to seeing him in this role very much the way I enjoyed seeing Connery as 007. What impresses me about Cruise is that he does all of his own stunts. I bet that made the production crew a little nervous, having their multi-million dollar budget put in jeopardy should the handsomely-weathered frat boy break an arm.

PS Hoffman is on a roll. You might have loved him to death in Capote but you'll want to place highly explosive devices in every one of his orifices during MI3. He is brilliantly evil as the villan.

You showed him, Rachel! :) I hadn't read that article but Cruise sure has had his share of unkind publicity.

yeah, I admit I'd like to see the film, but I just can't support Cruise anymore - maybe when it's on HBO or DVD???

Usually that what I do too, Ryan, DVDs at home but for films heavily dependent on FX, like the MI series I like to see them in theatres.

See it for PS Hoffman, he was great!

This is harsh but I guess I dont care enough about Cruise as person to let his offline life affect me at all.
