Mission: Impossible 3
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. J.J. Abrams. 2006, 126 mins. 35mm. With Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Philip Seymour Hoffman. The third M:I film finds the franchise taking a turn for the grim in the hands of J.J. Abrams. Ethan (Cruise) has retired from active duty and is planning a quiet life with his new fiancé, but is reluctantly pulled back into the field to track arms dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman). Even if Abrams’s entry cannot match the visual pyrotechnics of surrounding films in the series, Hoffman’s scene-chewing here is worth the price of admission—providing the M:I films, and modern action cinema, one of the most indelibly scary bad guys in recent memory.
