At least MI:2 doesn’t have Ethan go on the run from the IMF. All the other MI movies have been guilty of that.
It's a very tiresome aspect of most of the series, I'll admit, much like how the Fast & Furious series twists its villains, most of which do some really vile and illegal acts, into just another close family member by the end of each respective movie.
I quite agree Mr. @Last_Rat_Standing
Yes it's quite funny when Ethan's boss is a Welshman in one of them :)
It might have been nice if the IMF had been a bit more of an international agency rather than depicted as a US one.
Oh ok so it's a new character everything? Yah so they are US based but hire people from different countries? @mtm
Yes it's a new character every time. I think Ethan has had five different bosses so far that I can think of! Two of them have even died on the job.
And yes it does seem weird they have Aussie and Brits working for them. I guess the CIA probably does, but it still seems strange. If IMF had been a bit more of a UN sort of operation it might make it feel a bit more distinct from other spy shows; although I suppose UNCLE was like that, and they couldn't have "the President will disavow any knowledge of your actions"!
Well, yes and no. Which film am I describing here? Ethan must steal something dangerous in an elaborate heist because he needs it in order to trap the baddie, even though there's a huge risk associated with that thing being out in the open. His adversary is a Government agent gone rogue :)
😅 Touché my friend
That's always been my take on M:I-2 as well. It never feels like a Mission: Impossible movie. If it were just a generic standalone Cruise action movie with a really cheesy title like "Termination Vendetta" or "Operation Firewall," I'd probably like it a lot more.
THE DEVIL'S DOVES
OK interesting because the director in the first one comes back for dead reckoning.
Okay, this officially just made my day. I almost spit out my coffee. Thank you!
However, the rest of it works for me. The Vatican infiltration is a very fun and well done sequence and the Chesapeake bridge scene is amazing as well as the car chase in Shanghai with only seconds to spare. What it does is add an added layer of personal stakes to the film having Julia unknowingly captured and a personal vendetta against Ethan from Davien being pissed off that he interrupted his plans.
Speaking of which, Hoffman is hands down the best villian in the series and that's coming from someone who likes Solomon Lane ad well. The fact that he could be so calm and then promptly freaked out inside while being hung out of a plane and then truly terrifying while Ethan is tied to a chair makes him a very compelling and psychotic villian. I would probably put it third in the franchise ranks behind GP and RN and serves as a nice bridge for the last 3 films.
I still wanted to know what the Rabbits Foot was and what harm it could have done.
@mtm Who's that what's his name?
The character is William Donloe
He also famously writes the scripts as he's going, so to make two films with a continuing story is a surprising move as well as it doesn't seem to fit his usual way of doing things. He does seem to have changed his approach for these ones.
Well apparently he has a larger, longer, story to tell, and one that suits, or is even dependent on certain legacy characters.
This really does feel like a grand finale for Ethan Hunt’s story.
100% right. He's my favourite bad guy from Mission: Impossible. I hope that maybe he'll return even for a small cameo in MI7.
NTTD is 163-164 munutes, so wil it be longer then that.
