What's funny Check Two? I liked part 2 and part 3. The first one was disappointing. I'll check out the new one when it comes out. I wonder if Ving Rhames, Larry Fishburne, Michelle Monaghan are gonna return.

Something about MI3 didn't sit well with me after watching the whole thing. I think it's the overall story, some of the locations like Asia, some of the color palettes of the movie, also the end where Tom is going through pain from the device stuck in his body. That's why I'm not looking forward to 4. It seemed like part 2 is where everything fell together the best: good story, legendary director to bring great action sequences, chemistry between acting talent and better locations.

They have to be careful to not exhaust the franchise by putting out sequels that are unoriginal, hopefully they come up with something fresh on 4.
