Storyline

A man named Owen Davian kills an IMF agent that was sent undercover by the legendary Ethan Hunt, who has retired from combat missions. Hunt now has a fiancé, Julia, who believes that he works for the traffic department when he really trains younger IMF agents to go into combat. He is assigned to his last mission. His mission, should he choose to accept it is to capture Davian, who is selling a toxic weapon called the rabbits foot. But Davian is reckless, cruel, and deadly. He promises Hunt that he will find Julia, hurt her, and Ethan will be too dead to help her. The mission is no more different to others, its dangerous, smart, and impossible; but now it's personal.

Goofs

When Hunt makes his spectacular leap off a Shanghai skyscraper, he is on the east side of the Huangpu River that runs through the middle of the city. He ends up landing on the west side of the river, near Yanan Highway, which is about two kilometers away from the building, from which he had just jumped. See more »

Mission Impossible
13 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Easily not the best mission, but thanks to JJ Abrams direction and an absolute menacing performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman this movie is more than deserving of repeat viewings.
