Mission: Impossible III 
"Mission: Impossible III" by Yojimbo
2/4 stars

I was quite impressed with Brian De Palma's original Mission Impossible; it was a cleverly scripted and well cast spy movie with all the right ingredients. The second was okay too; much more of a dumbed down action film, but still tongue in cheek enough to be fun. I'd heard that the third instalment was a return to the more intricately plotted original. But guess what? I'd heard wrong. What we have here is Ethan Hunt blowing stuff up, jumping off buildings and hanging from helicopters, sharing only the most rudimentary militaristic "op" speak with his James Bond tag-team; otherwise they barely interact with each other. Add a wedding ceremony that's straight out of Independence day and a "twist" that's so obvious a 5 year old could guess it, and what you have is basically True Lies without the jokes. At least the previous film knew it was trashy action and presented itself as such; this is just trashy action with delusions of grandeur. A big disappointment.
