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.
