I think Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 is an amazing action-packed part one that stands up with the best in the series. With twists and turns that will keep you guessing as well as stunts and action that are some of the best in Hollywood, it will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is for sure a movie worth seeing in theatres perhaps more than once. Even though it is a long film it flies by feeling even more exhilarating than previous entries. Definitely go check it out!
All in all, I thought Mission Impossible Fallout was a really good movie, it takes the place of my second favourite in the series and is just a fun time. This movie has so many different elements and it continues to improve on elements from the rest of the series. Seeing the progression of these films all culminate in this non-stop thrill ride is fantastic. Yet at the same time, I feel this film manages to be one of the most personal entries in the franchise by reminding us how Ethan Hunt is human. One of my favourite action movies I have ever seen!
So overall, I found this to be my favourite of the series. It builds on what happened in the last one with more returning characters and plotlines. It really starts to become a series more than the stand-alone adventures of before. I think this movie moves at a fast pace with wall-to-wall action, fun characters, and twists and turns throughout. I would definitely recommend checking this one out either for the first or revisiting it if you have already seen it!
I think that this film is the best Mission Impossible yet taking element that has worked so well in the other movies. This movie perfectly captures what I love about this series and puts it in the craziest package. I think this is probably the most rewatchable film in the series as you’re glued to the screen the whole way through.
Overall, I thought Mission Impossible 3 took what worked in the first two films and found ways to add to them or improve them. This is the film that set this series in motion to become one of the most renowned action franchises in Hollywood. With elaborate action set pieces, engaging characters, clear stakes, and the heist elements this really became the blueprint for where these movies would go moving forward. I really like this movie and this is one I would easily revisit again.
I think that Mission Impossible 2 is actually a good spy movie that fits in with many movies from this genre. It has some really cool action, an interesting McGuffin as well as a good performance by Tom Cruise. Sadly it does not live up to the highs of this series with not enough of the elements that make these movies distinctly Mission Impossible. I would only recommend this movie if you are in fact doing a marathon of the entire series. Otherwise, I would say there are 5 others I would pick before throwing this one on.
Overall, I thought Mission Impossible was a good movie. You can tell it’s old but it gives it some charm, especially the old technology. This is probably the one that puts the emphasis on the thriller aspect and the action takes a back seat but it gives it a distinct flavour in comparison to the others. This may not be my favourite of the series but I think it is a good start that only gets improved upon later!
