Chimera is a deadly virus that will bear a grisly death unless you are given the antidote. The creator of Chimera is murdered and the antidote is stolen by a disavowed I.M.F. Agent, Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott). The Impossible Mission Force, (I.M.F.), hire the skilled and charming Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), and the beautiful Nyah Hall (Thandie Newton), who has had her share with Ambrose. Their mission, should they choose to accept it, is to send Hall undercover to Ambrose and learn what she can for Hunt to bring down Chimera, but they will have to break into a secure lab by jumping off of buildings and dodging bullets. Its impossible.
(at around 1h 50 mins) From the helicopter's point of view, as it approaches Nyah on the cliff over the harbor, safety wires can be seen attached to/in/behind/otherwise appearing to come outward from the actress's hands. See more »
You know women, mate. Like monkeys, they are - won't let go of one branch until they've got hold of the next.

The UK cinema version is the most complete version of the film to date, featuring additional scenes of violence. Additional footage includes:
a loud crunch during the aeroplane hijack as Ambrose twists and breaks Dr. Nekhorvich's neck
the actual impact and blood spurt on Stamp's knee when Ambrose shoots it, thinking Stamp is Ethan
the kick to Hunt's face during the beach fight is seen in full and does not cut away to Ambrose' face at the point of impact It is assumed that this version is the cut of the film made before trims were made to it for the MPAA to secure a PG-13 rating.
Watch Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious and tell me what you think...
I just watched this movie for the first time, and I kept having this vague feeling that I'd heard the story before. Then it came to me: Notorious! It's an Aflred Hitchcock film starring Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant from 1946.
The basic plotline goes: girl comes from questionable background. guy is sent to get girl for top-secret mission. guy falls in love with girl. guy discovers that girl must seduce the enemy. guy is not happy. girl goes. girl seduces the enemy. girl discovers enemy secrets. girl gets sick. guy rescues girl.
Can we say deja vu? The scene that really clinched it for me was the horse racing scene. Ingrid and Cary do the same scene! It's scary. All they did was update the plotline a little (ie, virus instead of gunpowder for the Nazis), throw in some action (well, a lot of action), and bogus technology, and you're set.
Watch Notorious for yourself and see what I mean...
