83 out of 100 Impossible is possible to be one of the most anticapted action films of all of Tom Cruise's movies.

It's not a terrible movie, it's just a terribly uninteresting movie. Maybe because its sequels(mainly M:I-III & Ghost Protocol) are much more amusing to watch. Tom Cruise's stunt work is always great to watch, but it's surrounded by a bunch of boring scenes and a very predictable plot. There are scenes I love, like the white room break in, and even the convoluted/preposterous Helicopter chase at the end, but I always end up losing interest after the first 40 minutes.
The cinematography and theme song are both fantastic, but they're not enough for me to recommend this movie. I'd say skip to the sequels... or at least M:I-III...

Originally written January 17, 1999--
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is framed for the murder of his fellow IMF agents during a Prague Embassy mission gone wrong and wrongly accused of selling government secrets to a mysterious international criminal known only as "Max". In order to clear his name, Hunt recruits two disavowed IMF agents: computer expert Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and pilot Franz Krieger (Jean Reno).
As a fan of this amazing show during the many years it was airing reruns on television, I was blown away by how intense and action-packed the film was! As Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert wrote, "This is a movie that exists in the instant, and we must exist in the instant to enjoy it." I loved it! The only thing I didn't like (SPOILER ALERT) was that the film portrayed Jim Phelps, the leader of the IMF team throughout the entire run of the TV series, as a traitor! I really don't believe that the Jim Phelps of the TV show would ever betray his country like the movie portrays. Perhaps the film was portraying a different Jim Phelps?! But beyond that, the film was fantastic!
