Mission: Impossible Regisserad av Brian De Palma
While the franchise has passed through many hands over the years, you never forget your first, and in these hair’s breadth escapes the movies still bear the imprint of the perverse pasticheur De Palma, who’d made a speciality of stretching time to the agonising breaking point in the Hitchcockian rush-to-the-rescue sequences of Blow Out, Body Double (1984) and Raising Cain (1992).

De Palma’s biggest commercial hit may be a slick and glossy franchise one-off, but it remains the nimblest and most endlessly rewatchable picture in that durable Tom Cruise franchise: It’s a movie I keep coming back to — each time grasping a bit more of the head-spinning plot, each time realizing how little it matters.

Then there’s the invasion of CIA headquarters by Ethan Hunt’s scratch team in Mission: Impossible (1996). In [De Palma’s] search for pure cinema, this might be the purest of all. The invasion sequence runs an astonishing eighteen minutes and, as typical of a film’s Development section, constitutes almost pure delay. You can imagine doing it in a couple of minutes, or a lot more.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    With the exception of the atmospheric and well-crafted opening in Prague as the stellar cast is being methodically wiped out, the rest of the film displays a cumulative effect in ludicrousness, culminating in the invasion to the CIA headquarters but mostly in the shamelessly silly mustering of centimetre-precise contingency in the train sequence in order to salvage Ethan. Great cast wasted in a hugely uneven film.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    At this point, the first entry in this series is ironically the outlier, focused as it is on shadowy intrigue and deception rather than escalating setpieces, and yet it remains my favorite. "Mission: Impossible" functions as both the ideal star vehicle for a brash, young Tom Cruise and an unfiltered expression of Brian DePalma's formal mastery. The memory of seeing this in a crowded '96 multiplex still feels fresh.

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    Concerned narratively and stylistically with De Palma's belief that film lies 24 times a second. An idea it reaffirms throughout as all the technological gadgets in the film are deceiving (Phelps' staged death with the microcameras) and untrustworthy (a fake list with a tracker), and it's ultimately Hunt's own thoughts (aided by a non-technological device, a Bible) that reveal an approximation of the truth.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    Awesome spy-thriller with both Cruise and De Palma on their finest form. The script is well put together and the supporting cast is great. De Palma plays every scene to its fullest and Cruise brings his trademark intensity to his role as Ethan Hunt. Hitchcock would have been proud and green with envy.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    First entry in the series was a somewhat generic action film that had a handful of great set pieces. Nothing in the film suggests the hand of director Brian De Palma in fact it could have been directed by anyone. Tom Cruise is pure hollywood as Ethan Hunt with most of the supporting cast hitting their mark and not much more. The break in to Langley still a very impressive scene as is the channel helicopter chase.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    Wow... the first 30 minutes are just... WOW! It’s essentially one, long, relentlessly gripping sequence, showcasing just the best of what DePalma has to offer. I hadn’t seen this in full in 10 years and it remains spectacular. Despite being more conservative than the modern iterations of the franchise when it comes to action, MI is still the most compelling. And it owes all to the master craftsman behind the camera.

  • Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    The first and the best of the trilogy. DePalma put all his craft to create an exciting thriller in the same style of his (and mine as well) worshipped Alfred Hitchcock.

  • Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film Mission: Impossible

    The first of the MI series may be simple-minded in it's dramatic aspects, but apart from the masterful direction of the action/suspenseful sequences, the film is playful in details and visual/narrative analogies (Corpses, trench coats, chairs and rooms) and there's a delightful Henry Czerny playing as IMF head of operation, which reminds me of Hitchcock even more than De Palma's directorial style does.
