Default M:i 3

I also saw M:I 3, but it was not as good as everybody is saying. It's not bad, but it felt like a Alias show. The whole movie was action packed, but I dont know what the plot was. The Rabbit's foot, my girl had to explain it to me, saying that it had to do with selling it to Iraq and framing them. It might be a "anti-god" chemical killing everything in sight. Anyway, Hoffman is barely used, Keri Russell has one big scene thats it. I thought she was the main character next to cruise. Atleast its not one-man cruise this time. The IMF team helps him out. The Twist isn't even a twist, its poorly executed. However, it is a high intense film.

saw MI3 last night...and it was much better than i was expecting. i dont expect much from those hollywood blockbusters, and very few have impressed me over the last few years...adn this was one of them.

tom cruise's acting is pretty solid as usual..and the story was very complex, as expected from an MI movie...but at its core, it was quite simple. this is one of those movies that needs to be watched a few more times to pick up on everything...i found myself lost a few times during the mission details...but i got the gyst of it, and understood enough to enjoy the film. ving rhames, maggie Q and laurence fishburne were all welcome additions to the casting..they all did a fine job...personally, i really liked fishburne..too bad he didnt have more to do.

the action, was better than expected. the first action scene had some real shaky camerawork and fast editing, but it worked well enough i thought. well enough that i understood what was going on..thankfully, most of the other action scenes were better shot. there was actually one combat scene that took place in an elevator that really caught me offguard...tom had some pretty neat moves...kinda a pseudo martial arts fight. ultimately, the espionage is what i came to see, and the one or 2 espionage missions were really interesting to watch and see how they unfolded, in good MI style. style points in my book. the film scored big points in my books by the usage of cgi...there was obviously cgi in it, but i thought they were smart about the usage of it...they didnt go overboard with it like i was expecting. there were a few cool stunts thrown in the mix too which tom's double did a good job with.

thats not to say the movie didnt have its flaws...it did...as mentioned b4, some of the camerawork was giving me a headache. thats a biased opinion...being a huge HK fan, i expect cleaner, more precisely shot action. 2ndly, the ending left more to be desired...and the film had its fair share of one liners and cheese...which i'll leave that up to opinion.

overall...pretty good, not magnificent, but defientely better than what i was expecting. the cast did good, the action was pretty solid and the story, while confusin at times, was well done. im impressed.
7.5...or maybe 8 out of 10 for me.

It wasn't complex really. Just the rabbit's foot was a poor man's excuse to do a Hitchcock Mcguffin. If , anything, I still think M:I 2 has the best plot, with all the cool little twist. i didn't think it was as bad as everyone said it was.

If you have a chance, watch m 2 again regardless of the parts that made you cringe and all of its flaws. You realize its not that bad, just like you said, a one-man show. Part 3 was good, it just wasn't incredible like a lot of people seem to think. Maybe cause it was a fresh new look at the franchise or maybe cause it was a good action movie and we dont get that in a while.

Phillip Seymore Hoffman was so underused, it wasn't even funny. It was sad. He was the bad guy and you see him in like three scenes. The last 15 minutes of the movie was bad. The first mission, saving the female agent was shot very shaky, but other than that it was very entertaining. It's just that it was written and directed by the creator of lost, and there wasn't anything interesting about the plot, no real twist, and a hollywood boring ending.

Sorry dude but hip hop got no place in a spy movie.
Cool movie though, very enjoyable.

i saw it yesterday. the whole premise was that it was told flash back. the movie was his last mission maybe? he got married but never said anything about quitting.

the criminal was selling rabbit's foot and the weapon that every bad guy has is an anti god destroy the world type schtick, so the action scenes were good for the various missions they enacted. yeah the team did make it more less one headliner .

saw this yesterday.....the actors was talkin, thats for sure....but wtf were they talkin about half the time!?!?!
i swear even if they hadnt talked id still have the same amount of confusion....i understand the "plot" well by now....and its so cliche its sad
didnt expect that from a sequel of Impossible....the action was nice (as usual) but some of it reminded me of Bad Boys 2 (the type of over the top action that barely has emphasis with the plot)
overall was a disappointing movie but i wont give it a low grade just cuz the action keeps u watching....and OH...u just wanna wait to laugh at the ending cuz u already know wats gonna happen

3/5

After seeing it, I honestly can say I enjoyed myself. It wasn't amazing and it wasn't bad, but I was desperate to go back to the movies LOL. There really hasn't been that many movies that I was hyped to see, so I felt like seeing this one.

It does have great action moments, but towards the end I got lost on what the plot was about. Hopefully I get my money's worth when seeing The Da Vinci Code on Friday.
