SYNOPSIS

‘Paramount had the good sense to entrust the first entry in its Mission: Impossible movie franchise to Brian De Palma, who turned in an intricate, ’scope-shot, supreme thrill ride and one of the great commercial blockbusters of the decade. Then-top-of-the-world Tom Cruise is government agent Ethan Hunt, trying to piece together why his team was betrayed by his superiors in an elaborately botched job in Prague. The virtuoso suspense scenes pile up, from the multiple-perspective opening sequence to Cruise’s breathless cable-suspension computer heist to the helicopter-meets-bullet-train climax. It hasn’t aged a day.’ Metrograph
