That's a big M:I overload. But I loved the last movie.

I tapped out on this franchise when they killed off Emilio in the first five minutes of the first one, and didn't even put his name in the credits.

Treating the most talented actor in your film in such a disgraceful manner will NOT win you the "Leo656 Gold Star of Approval", I'll tell you that for nothin'. Never looked back.

That first film was so odd how they killed off their original "team" and then revealed that the original M:I protagonist from way back in the TV series had been behind it all. My mom, who was a fan of the TV show from way back, was not pleased.

Yeah, I was never a fan, so that entire twist was lost on me, but my Dad thought it was stupid, too.

I remembered that Peter Grave. Who played Mr Phelps in the original series didn't liked that his character turned out to be the villain.

Either way. These MI movies always centered on Tom Cruise. It was more his movie then theirs.

Kudos to him! They should have just changed the character's name for the film and kept the twist about a retired team leader. Maybe Peter Graves would have been willing to do the part so long as it didn't tarnish the legacy of his character for that older generation of fans.

I guess it was their way of saying 'yeah but our MI is better'.

Never cared about this franchise. Didn't finish the first movie.

I do find it interesting that McQuarrie chose to film these movies instead of taking on either of the DC properties that his name had been connected with (Green Lantern, Man of Steel 2). I'd rather have those films than more MI, but whatever.

Every Mission Impossible movie except for 2 is great. These films are better than any James Bond film over the last 20 years.

I remember Mission Impossible 2 winning "best movie of the year" in one of my yearbook end of the year round ups. Sure we were kids but they loved it, also that limp bizkit MI song is amazing



I remember loving MI 1 as a kid, bought the bad N64 video game and forced myself to like it. MI2 I remember thinking I liked it but I remember nothing of it. I watched MI3 and remember thinking it was decent. Looks like I need to catch up.
