Format:Blu-ray
A MUST OWN for Blu-ray and HD fans!
'Mission: Impossible III' as a film has already earned the distinction of being labeled a disappointment, but it is no stinker. Though it is understandable that many have become turned off by Tom Cruise, 'M:I III' is a strong thriller in its own right, and for me, it is superior to the first two installments in the franchise. As for this Blu-ray release, major kudos must go to Paramount as this is by far the best disc I've yet seen on the format. Fantastic video, audio and tons of HD content make this perhaps the best demo material available thus far on the format. Sure, some will still lament the use of MPEG-2 and the lack of the picture-in-picture commentary as seen on the HD DVD version, but 'M:I III' goes a long way toward heating up the format war to the near-boiling point. This one is a must-have for all but the most ardent Tom Cruise haters. The only disappointment is that it's not produced on Blu-ray anymore. Paramount/Dreamworks had a thing on September with Sony and after that they made a great deal with HD DVD and went exclusive to HD DVD! What a shame! 'Cause Blu-ray has the best quality transfer, the latest technology, the most capacity and also is the strongest against scratches and pressures.

Format:DVD
the three main reasons this "Mission Impossible" entry is the best
yet.yeah,Tom Cruise is back,of course,and does a good job as the main
character Ethan Hunt.however,it is the presence of the three actors
mentioned in my summary which make this movie succeed.first,Laurence
Fishburne,a physically imposing presence for sure,but also extremely
charismatic with a very palpably intense screen presence.i think he
owns any scene he is in.next,Philip Seymour Hoffman,also a very strong
screen presence who manges to be both understated and mesmerizing at
the same time.and Keri Russel(from the dramatic TV series Felicity)
really impressed here in an action movie.in fact she impressed me the
most in this movie.there is just something about her,something
intangible you can't put your finger on.the rest of the supporting cast
are also strong.also,this third installment in the series is not
convoluted,like the first,and not as reality defying as the
second.don't get me wrong,there are some stunts that are not too
realistic,but to a lesser degree and not as frequent.i also think the
story is better and the villain is very strong.this would be the ideal
end to the franchise,since it goes out on a high note.but time will
tell.the last three or four "Bond" films(excluding the last one) were
much more unrealistic.i highly recommend MI:III.an easy 4/5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mission Impossible 3 Oct. 2 2006
By Marcia TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I can't belief I'm writing this, but MS3 is better than 1 & 2. This is from someone who thinks sequels are tacky Hoolywood money makers and avoids them like the plague. I'm old enought to remember MS on TV years ago and watched it weekly. This movie is the closest to the old format yet delivered. I will actually buy it when it comes out. I'd rate MS1 6 out of 10; MS 2 - 5 out 0f 10 and MS 3 - 8 out of 10. It's the closest to the original series I've seen yet. Tom cruise actually acts well for an action movie and I like this one. All it needs is a more realistic opening where Tom Cruise is asked to take the mission knowing he will be disavowed if he screws up which of course he doesn't. The original crew never did either. Go on it's worth a few bucks. This is fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY UNDERRATED Sept. 11 2006
Format:DVD
This is a great action movie and by far out does the second Mission Impossible. It recieved a lot of bad press and negative attention because of all the controversy surrounding Tom Cruise, but looked at as an action film, is filled with great action, great characters and great writing.

J.J Abrhams did the franchise justice and restored my faith in Ethan Hunt after being shaken by the second.

Excellent action film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Utterly unheard of June 14 2007
By Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Not very often do the studios come up with a 3rd installment of a film that surpasses it's predecessors. I felt that this was one of those rare cases. I was one of the minority who was not blown away by the first MI. I was even more dissappointed by the second MI. The second one was nothing but a "Cruise love-in". God forbid that they shot a single second of footage that didn't include Tom.
With these memories, I avoided this 3rd MI film. Well, today I had the day off and it was on Pay channels. I sat down and was prepared to be underwhelmed. I was pleasantly surprised. The film again relies heavily on Cruise. But, this time the story is greatly improved by the presence of Lawrence Fishburne and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Back again is the tremendous Ving Rhames. All these characters make for a compelling story. There is also the presence of the nifty gadgets and urgency we expect from MI films.
Overall I found the entire film to be much more enjoyable than the previous MI's and would recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lived Up To Hype Sept. 17 2007
By Craig Connell - Published on Amazon.com
I heard nothing but good things about this movie, so I rented it the first day it was available recently.....and I wasn't disappointed. Oh, it does have a bit too much action and a few politically-correct annoyances but neither are much and overall the movie is a lot of fun to watch.

The action scenes are not only interesting; they're spectacular at times. Overall, the photography is slick. It's a good visual movie. Not only the cinematography, but the director did a nice job with many of these shots. The version doesn't have all the gimmicks the first Misssion Impossible film, but it certainly has the best action scenes. The action is improbable as Cruise's "Ethan Hunt" would have to be Superman to perform the stunts and acrobatics he does here. (I would never claim this movie is credible, or even "intelligent" - just escapist fun.)

Just put your brains on hold, and go along for the wild ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mission Impossible III goes more for Noise and Effects than Cunning Intelligence Oct. 30 2006
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
The reason for the success of MI I and MI II, for this viewer, was the sophisticated, scientific devices and plans used to manipulate evil by good. It was always a pleasure to watch the superior minds win. But somehow MI III seems far more interested in pyrotechniques and mass explosions and derring-do than for smart ideas and for that reason it seems less successful - but then that may be the result of watching it on the home television instead of the vast spaces of a theatrical screen.

The story is negligibly the same as usual: impossible villain is superceded finally by Ethan Hunt. The role still fits Tom Cruise well, if a bit repetitious, but the strong point of this third installment is the supporting cast. We have the pleasure of Philip Seymour Hoffman's acting gifts as the arch villain, and the added pleasure of fine actors like Billy Crudup, Ving Rhames, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Laurence Fishburne and the beauty of Michelle Monaghan, Keri Russell, and Maggie Q. And when they are not all covered by fire and broken glass and whirling helicopters and collapsing bridges etc they do make us notice them.

Not a movie for those who prefer intelligent scripts, but for an evening's diversion it is entertaining, Grady Harp, October 06

4.0 out of 5 stars High-gloss popcorn entry into "MI" franchise March 14 2007
By Scott Schiefelbein - Published on Amazon.com
"Mission Impossible III" is a definitive summer popcorn movie. It's got amazing special effects, outlandish stunts, handsome heroes and gorgeous heroines, and a plot that is as thin as tissue paper. All in all, a perfect afternoon's escape from the summer heat.

If you are looking for a complex plot out of a Le Carre novel, you'll be disappointed in this movie, but then you knew that, didn't you? Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) tries to save the planet and his wife (Michelle Monaghan, from "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang," a much wittier film) from the evil Owen Davian (Phillip Seymour Hoffman, cashing in on his best actor Oscar from "Truman"). Davian is some kind of evil gun runner who sells weapons of mass destruction to Bad Guys, and he and Hunt are fighting over the Rabbit's Foot, an undescribed weapon with unimaginable destructive power that also conveniently fits into a small briefcase. Alfred Hitchcock would call this the "MacGuffin."

This "plot" is an excuse to string together some incredibly clever and outlandish "ops" for the Mission Impossible Team. From an early scene where Hunt and his team rescue a captured MI member to a kidnapping in the Vatican to some highwire escapades in Shanghai, Hunt and his gang offer visual thrills galore.

Leave your disbelief at the door, don't try to figure out the physics or the logic, and just have a good time watching attractive people do unimaginably spectacular things. (And try to forget that Tom Cruise is, you know, insane.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Summer Action From J.J. Abrams & Great Performance By Hoffman, But Where's The Originality? May 7 2006
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
MOVIE: While Summer isn't officially here, it is here in terms of movies. Mission Impossible 3 kicks off the summer movie season with a bang with an interesting and entertaining installment in the money-making franchise. Tom Cruise reprises his Ethan Hunt role and J.J. Abrams takes the director's chair. What makes the Mission Impossible franchise so interesting is the constant change of directors. If you look at other franchises like Lethal Weapon, Pink Panther, Indiana Jones, etc, the directors usually stay on board for the sequels. Even with the James Bond franchise you have directors usually doing several Bond films in a row. Mission Impossible was helmed by Brian De Palma and was all espionage with light action. Action maestro John Woo took the second one and made an explosive and entertaining action sequel even if it was a little over cooked. J.J. Abrams makes his feature film directorial debut with Mission Impossible 3, which is a little bit of espionage and a little bit of action. For those who don't know Abrams, he started out writing films like Armageddon and Regarding Henry. He then broke into the television scene with Alias, a pretty popular show. He became very well known recently for his latest show. Abrams is the creator of LOST, one of my favorite shows. So, I was excited to see his first movie. M:I-3 has Ethan Hunt trying to settle down and start a normal life, but he is thrown back into his old job when an arms dealer played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman wants him to track down the Rabbit's Foot. The Rabbit's Foot is some kind of weapon of mass destruction, and if Hunt doesn't retrieve it in 48 hours his fiance will be killed. What follows are explosive action sequences that sing the right tune to satisfy all of our action appetites. The movie is good, but I couldn't help feeling like something was lacking. I tried to pinpoint it, and the only thing that I could come up with was that it lacked style. Sure it had LOST written all over it. The tight close ups, starting the film by showing the ending and then rewinding back to the beginning, getting Michael Giacchino to compose an almost identical score to LOST, even re-creating a scene from LOST at the end, but still the movie didn't feel like it had an overall style. The reason why I liked M:I-2 was that it had John Woo style. The slow motion build up, the doves, and of course Hans Zimmer's amazing music. I'm just saying that Mission Impossible 3 is good, but it's not a definative action movie that stands out from the rest, let's see how Abrams develops his techniques with future projects now that he's broken into the movie scene.

ACTING: Phillip Seymour Hoffman steals the show as the incredibly self centered and hot tempered Owen Davian. You can tell he had lots of fun with the role. Tom Cruise does what he does perfectly and basically owns the character. The supporting effort by Ving Rhames and the rest of the gang are not anything spectacular. It's really all about Hoffman and Cruise.

BOTTOM LINE: M:I-3 delivers the goods, but it doesn't step above anything we've seen before. The bridge fight and helicopter chase were the only scenes in the movie that really felt original, everything else felt like it has been done many times before. It's entertaining, it's fun, and you'll enjoy it. It was great to see Hoffman and Cruise really work off each other. Abrams does a great job directing, but he really didn't make it his own in my opinion.
