FantasticFest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and action movies from all around the world. Here's a list of some of our favorite movies at FantasticFest.
To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a ruthless terrorist, but the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method.
IMF agent Ethan Hunt has been sent on a mission to retrieve and destroy the supply of a genetically created disease called 'Chimera'. His mission is made impossible due to the fact that he is not the only person after samples of the disease. He must also contest with a gang of international terrorists headed by a turned bad former IMF agent who has already managed to steal the cure called 'Bellerophon' and now need 'Chimera' to complete their grand plan of infecting the whole world. In order to infiltrate and locate the terrorist group he relies on the help of an international thief Nyah of whom he quickly develops a love interest. Time is not only running out for Agent Hunt to find and destroy 'Chimera' before the terrorists get their hands on it, but he must also find 'Bellerophon' so as to save his love interest who has already become infected by the disease from a terrible and rapid death.

Andrew Lesnie was the film's original cinematographer. He left less than a month into shooting, due to "stylistic differences" with director John Woo. See more »
After Nyah pick-pockets Ambrose, she places the envelope with the memory card in between her side and arm, and turns to walk away. When she begins to walk away, her arms are spread and no envelope can be seen, but then it closes up on her dropping the envelope into her hand, even though the space in between would have already allowed it to drop.

If only those from the end pigeons would have pecked out my eyes!
No matter how you feel about Jim Carry you should thank him for making the Grinch, because up until that came out M:I2 had been the highest grossing movie of 2000. Which would have been quite awful way to begin the new millennium. Or end the last one, depending on how annoying you are about that issue. Do not see this movie even if Tom Cruise rings your doorbell and threatens to wave his long hair in slow motion as he did so often in film if you don't view it. It has absolutely no redeeming qualities about it at all. The tape inside the film's video cassette is to thick to use as dental floss, To long to work as a belt. Also This movie is not only awful, it is a total knock off of Notorious by the incredible director Alfred Hitchcock. The following parts of Notorious were completely stolen and screwed up by Tom: Cary Grant and Ingrid meeting at the race track and her boy friend becoming suspicious of them. Cary seducing Bergman and then using her in his spy work. Ingrid having to go under cover and marry the bad guy, who is in love with her. Tom, if your going to make a movie that sucks, please don't try and tarnish a perfectly good Hitchcock in the process.
