Critic Reviews of "Mission Impossible"VarietyMay 20, 2008
The most dour, sexless piece of escapism in memory.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Despite the snags, De Palma remains a virtuoso puppet-master, pulling the strings taut in a nail-biting robbery sequence, switching from micro to macro with Hitchcockian panache, and finally letting rip with a hell-for-leather climax.Washington PostJanuary 18, 2002
Humorless, charmless and flat.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Too devious for its own good.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
There are just a few groovy special effects and a practically incomprehensible story which we finally can't work up enough energy to care about.TIME MagazineJanuary 01, 2000
An infinite trailer that is all effects, no affect.Antagony & EcstasyJanuary 02, 2016
The film tries to push against its genre, and the auteurist flourishes are unmistakable.Lyles' Movie FilesJuly 27, 2015
Still holds up as a fun, unique entry in the action spy genre and launched Tom Cruise's second career arc as an action megastar.Movie MetropolisDecember 05, 2011
What used to be an IMF team effort turned into another star vehicle for Tom Cruise.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Sensational, implausible, irresistible to teens.Decent Films GuideOctober 29, 2008
De Palma has a choppy, episodic sense of story, and he crafts individual scenes rather than telling a single unified story.eFilmCritic.comJuly 18, 2008
It's a mission De Palma shouldn't have chosen to accept.
