During Brassel's debrief, he says that Owen Davian is invisible in terms of "Wells, not Ellison." H.G. Wells wrote "The Invisible Man" (1897) in which the title character is a scientist who can make himself physically invisible. Ralph Ellison wrote "Invisible Man" (1952) in which the main character, an African-American, considers himself a member of a socially invisible minority. See more »
When Ethan and Luther are using the machine to paint the Owen mask under the Vatican, the eye-holes in the mask stay white while the rest of the mask is painted. If the mask were really being painted, the head mannequin would have also be painted. See more »

Overall I thought this movie was great. I went to it expecting it to be a good action flick. One with good fight scenes and explosions and got just that. The story line could have used a little work, but this blew the 2nd installment out of the water. This movie was definitely needed to revamp the Mission Impossible series. I was kind of hoping for a few more lines from Phillip Seymour Hoffman, but he still played an excellent villain.
As far as story line goes...I'd rate the trilogy this way. 1st movie, 3rd movie, and then dead last is the 2nd.
As far as action...I'd rate this 3rd installment as the best! If you are looking for an entertaining movie this will definitely grasp it. Enjoy!
