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
An excellent transfer that makes the quality look like you’re getting a 4K experience! The movie itself is great and arguably the second best Mission: Impossible film! Definitely worth buying and watching!
As just about everyone knows that this is the first flick in the MI reboot. Mr Phelps helps the transition from the TV series to a new movie franchise. I liked it and I'm glad to have it in my collection. The transfer is incredible, and it's a pleasure to watch it from that standpoint. I'm not really sure why I didn't give it 5*s, but having seen all of the new series, it was good but not great. However, I'll rewatch it sometime down the line.
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.
The original impossible mission. Cruise is the man. Great cast and Vanessa Redgrave as Max, a very classy lady. John Voight, what a career. The movie was beautifully done. All the stunts were top notch and action packed. Three thumbs up. Also a great buy on 4k.
