The director can be seen in the hospital when Ethan is looking for his wife. He is also the voice on the phone talking about a free trip to Mexico. See more »
When Musgrave is speaking with Ethan in the convenience store he has a significant amount of chin and lip hair. When Ethan is watching the taped mission message from Musgrave in the next scene, he is extremely clean shaved. It could not have been taped that much earlier. See more »

Ethan Hunt is back. Getting involved with some girl - but should he marry her in his line of work?
I personally did not have to much expectations to this one. Thought it would be just like number 1 and 2. But I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it at a press viewing in Oslo today. The film is actually really good. The story stronger than before, and they play nicely on feelings this time.
There is also plenty of action :) All in all i would give this 8 out of 10. I personally think there is some really good acting in this one. We have Philip Seymour Hoffman as the bad guy, perfect role for him. Others worth mentioning is Jonathan Rhys Meyers. I recently saw an other movie with him - Match Point - and I must say like this actor.
Tom Cruise is very mainstream as always. But I think this has got be one of his better roles the last years. I did not think he preformed well in for example War of the Worlds. But in this one here he does a much better job :)
So run to the cinemas and see it :)
