Mission Impossible (1996)

Thinking of Cruise will always make us recall two of his most commercial hits; Top Gun & Mission Impossible. It's unlikely for someone to have missed any of these. 

Mission Impossible in short can be described as a sleek & gritty espionage thriller. The plot is straightforward; here the protagonist goes into to a mission to expose a mole deep within CIA, who has framed him for the murder of his team in one of the mission which was shoddily compromised. Though there had been some minor plot holes this movie was still highly enjoyable.

Tom Cruise has immortalized the character of 'Ethan Hunt' in the entire IM series. If there is any thing which I have to complain about, it's the development of the characters. Personally I feel most of the casts used where one dimensional, whether this was a deliberate attempt I can never tell. In a way I feel some good amount of potential in character development was lost.

Score was one more strong point of the movie and the Mission Impossible Theme by Danny Elfman was simply mesmerizing.

In short in spite of some minor short falls, this movie did provide some amazing action sequence and had been successful in delivering plenty of high notes to keep you at the edge of the seat.

My Rating : 6/10
