Based on the hit T.V. series. Jim Phelps was sent to Prague for a mission to prevent the theft of classified material. His wife Claire and his trusted partner Ethan Hunt were members of Phelps' team. Unfortunately, something went horribly wrong and the mission failed, leaving Ethan Hunt the lone survivor. After he reported the failed mission, Kettridge the head of the agency suspects Ethan of being the culprit for the failed mission. Now, Ethan uses unorthodox methods (Which includes the aid of an arms dealer going by the name "Max") to try to find who set him up and to clear his name. Written by
The main lobby of CIA Headquarters at Langley was actually shot inside County Hall, London. The helipad next to Tower Bridge where Kitteridge lands does not exist and was specially built for the film and removed afterwards. The site is a public park. See more »
(at around 1h 11 mins) When Krieger and Hunt usher Claire out of the CIA building following the fire alarm, she is dressed in her red office clothes, into which she changed when she ditched her yellow firefighter overalls after entering the building. When they are seen driving away in the firetruck, she is back dressed in the firefighter overalls, even though she was not carrying them with her when she left the building. See more »

So, how does it feel to be a solid citizen again?
Man, I don't know. I'm gonna miss bein' disreputable.
Well, Luther, if it makes you feel any better, I'll always think of you that way.

Everyone seems to complain that the plot in this film is too confusing, but just because you don't 'get' it doesn't mean it's a bad movie. I thought that the plot was superb; it may be a little difficult to follow, but with a little thought it isn't at all hard to understand. It is refreshing to have a big budget thriller with a clever plot, not just masses of pyrotechnics and gunplay.
