This is one of the best adaptions of a TV series ever made. Because it updates everything, but leaves in characters, and most importantly, the atmosphere.And, the cool gadgets.
Summary: Tom Cruise, "he of the distorted mouth with one tooth at the center of his face" stars as Ethan Hunt, a member of an IMF team which is apparently double crossed on a mission and Ethan and some pouty-lipped french slut are the only survivors. Between misleading, plot twists, reversals and triple crossings, the result is an excellent suspense movie.
The movie suceeds on many levels. The special effects are breathtaking, the plot is just as twisting and unpredictable as we want, and more. The villans are evil the women are beautiful except for the french bitch and the heros are cool. And the gadgets are beyond high tech and boy, do they come in handy.One of the best in its genre.
