Mission Impossible

Mission Impossible (1996) (110 min – Rated: PG-13)

Mission: Impossible (also known in the Blu-ray release as M:I) is a 1996 American spy film directed by Brian De Palma and starring Tom Cruise. Based on the television series of the same name, the plot follows a new agent, Ethan Hunt and his mission to uncover the mole who has framed him for the murders of his entire IMF team. Work on the script had begun early with filmmaker Sydney Pollack on board, before De Palma, Steven Zaillian, David Koepp, and Robert Towne were brought in. Mission: Impossible went into pre-production without a shooting script. De Palma came up with some action sequences, but Koepp and Towne were dissatisfied with the story that led up to those events.

Opener: Oh man. I got some serious lasagna breath going on here and I still have that really hard mission to accomplish where I have to talk to a bunch of high falootin senators at that dinner party. Let’s see what I have in my pockets. Oh good. hmm… Where did I get gum. oh well… nom nom nom. oh that guy look like a fat deniro.
