Re: Abrams and Cruise Reuniting for Mission: Impossible 4
I really liked M:I:3, much more than the first two films. I can't deny that the third film invoked a similarity to "Alias" in more ways than one, but I think it went the furthest in terms of an ensemble cast. The first two films were really all about Ethan Hunt, while the third acknowledged a team working together (and that Ethan actually needs to rely on them to save the day; sometimes he can't do it alone).
I'm not sure that we need another Mission: Impossible film. In fact, I would prefer not to make another sequel. However, I'm happy that Abrams will be involved in some capacity. I don't think he'll direct it, though.
