Dir. John Woo. 2000, 123 mins. 35mm. With Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Thandie Newton. John Woo’s take on the venerable action franchise sends Cruise and company to Australia to stop the release of a deadly virus. Given that Woo is at the helm, the plot flies quickly out the window in favor of swirling slo-mo motorcycle action and the regular release of flocks of white doves. This most surreal entry in the M:I series of films is a testament to how elastically producer Cruise has treated the series; the films have never been vehicles for slavish fan service and always bear the stamp of their directors.
