After he is framed for the death of several colleagues and falsely branded a traitor, a secret agent embarks on a daring scheme to clear his name in this spy adventure. Though it drew its name from the familiar television series, director Brian DePalma's big-budget adaptation shares little more with the original show than the occasional self-destructing message and the name of team leader Jim Phelps (Jon Voight). The film focuses not on Phelps but his protégé, Ethan Hunt (a reserved Tom Cruise), who becomes a fugitive after taking the blame for a botched operation. He responds by banding together with a group of fellow renegades, and he is soon maneuvering his way through a twisted series of double crosses that mainly serve as excuses for spectacular high-tech action sequences. Much of the activity revolves around a missing computer disk, with the film's most famous scene depicting Hunt's delicate efforts to retrieve the disk from a secure, well-alarmed room in CIA headquarters.~Judd Blaise
Mission: remarkable - 40 years of creating the impossible
The original Mission Impossible is celebrating it's 25th anniversary with another physical media release but it's a good one.I'm upgrading from VHS so I owuldn't know but this is a new improved transfer for this Blu Ray release and it looks great.And some great special features.The decal included in this release is a nice touch.It's amazing that Tom Cruise has done six of these films with two more on the way over a 25 year period.But this first one has such a great a different feel compared to the sequels.
This remastered disc offers an significant picture and audio upgrade over the previously released extremely dated looking blu-ray that came out in 2007. All the same supplements are included from previous home video releases. Highly recommended!
This is the first time a remastered blu ray, which is based on the 4K transfer, was ever released. All the other editions uses the sucky film transfer.
Ethan Hunt, an American agent, under false suspicion of disloyalty, must discover and expose the real spy without the help of his organization
