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
The image looks gorgeous. There's no mistaking its crisp, seamless cinematic bonafides. Grain can be a little heavy in select shots, but it's often very even, albeit well pronounced. It's flattering and gorgeously rendered. The 12-bit Dolby Vision colors are a great improvement over the Blu-ray as well. Whites are more intense and clean, flesh tones are far more balanced, and the entire palette enjoys a significant increase in color depth, vibrance, and yield. It's much more evenly presented. No new extras are included, but the carryover Blu-ray offers plenty.
Mission: Impossible has finally received the 4K HDR treatment, and man does it look spectacular with it! The previous Blu-Ray release didn't capture the charm that the movie had, but Paramount has righted wrongs and unveiled a more colorful and powerful film. The picture has greatly improved, with HDR giving the image such a great look and color, and the 5.1 audio track being as solid as it will ever be!
I bought this special collector's edition of Mission: Impossible thinking that the one that came in the trilogy three-pack had less features...I was wrong. This collector's edition had the exact same features only with a different cover. Lame. Now, the only upside to buying this movie after saying that was that this also came with a ticket to see Jack Ryan in theaters. So, spending 10 bucks on this movie and also getting a a free movie ticket was definitely worth it but I should have just went with another featured Blu Ray movie that offered the same. Anyway, if you enjoy these movies, I suggest just buying the trilogy three-pack or wait for the inevitable four-pack.
