Mission Impossible (1996)
I consider Tom Cruise’s first Mission Impossible movie to be a masterpiece.
- Having several known actors (Emilio Estevez, Kristin Scott Thomas) killed off in the first act is a genius move - it keeps the audience on its toes for the rest of the movie.
- Vanessa Redgrave’s “Max” is an amazing character!
- Both the Langley burglary and the train/helicopter chase are milestone action movie scenes.
