Fifth about The Seventh

Mission: Impossible III

Mission Impossible 3Mission: Impossible III: J.J. Abrams’ film is, in many ways, a typical Abrams work: it has his traditional structure and frantic pace (courtesy of his collaboration with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci in the screenplay), some of his usual cast and even his usual visual tricks. It turns out to be an entertaining entry to the franchise. The plot is simple, allowing for lots of action scenes, but few thrilling, quiet set-pieces. Tom Cruise is in full charming mode, Ving Rhames is as competent as he has been from the get-go, but every time you put Philip Seymour Hoffman in a cast, he is the stand-out. Daniel Mindel’s images are colorful and hectic, perhaps a bit too much so. Michael Giacchino’s score makes good use of Lalo Schifrin’s original theme.
