First week of vacation and I am already bored! Last night, Parineet, Sagar and me headed out to Golden Village at Tiong Bahru to watch Mission: Impossible III. In this third movie of the series, Ethan Hunt is almost a family man. He is engaged to a nurse (Julie) and is planning marriage when he is called back to rescue a teammate in Germany. The teammate dies after being rescued and Hunt decides to kidnap the villain Davian in Vatican City. He succeeds but Davian is rescued back by his cronies and with a little help from someone on the inside of IMF. Davian swears revenge and kidnaps Hunt’s fianceé. Hunt heads out to China on a personal mission to kill Davian and save his love.
Tom Cruise is just as watchable as before even though he has aged. The effects are good, but the movie is a letdown. The story is riddled with holes. For example, Hunt plans an elaborate scheme to get a mysterious object called the Rabbit’s Foot. After all the planning, the viewer does not get to see how he steals it. Also, we never get to know what this object is. The movie is good to watch, but very forgettable after you are done with it.
