Just watched this today for the first time. As my post above shows, I've long given up the idea that the movies will play out like the show at all. But I was really surprised with this one, it felt the the most like the show, and it was nice seeing Cruise share the screen with an actual team this time.
Yes. As I said in my own review, Brian DePalma made a DePalma-style spy thriller, John Woo made a Woo-style spy thriller, J. J. Abrams made Alias: The Movie... but Brad Bird went and made an actual Mission: Impossible movie. (Although it's still an Ethan Hunt movie and includes the tropes of that series as well.)
