Re: Abrams and Cruise Reuniting for Mission: Impossible 4

So, will Abrams get Leonard Nimoy to reprise his old MI character?

I never saw the second movie. The series had 3 movies over 10 years...has this "we'll dredge it up to keep Cruise's career alive and make money off a premise that's been reduced to memorable theme music" quality.

That would be awesome!

In spite of Cruise's ego, I think the movies are very good. The 1st one was an excellent international espionage thriller (although it took me a few viewings to understand anything about the plot). The 2nd one is kinda stupid but has a few good scenes in it. I was really impressed with the 3rd one, especially how Abrams began to restore the team aspect of Mission Impossible rather than just making another Tom Cruise vanity project. They're on the right track. I'd like to see a 4th one (and I was much happier with what Abrams did with M:I:III than with what he did to Star Trek).

Re: Abrams and Cruise Reuniting for Mission: Impossible 4

I absolutely loved Abram's Mission: Impossible III so I am thrilled he's returning to the franchise in some capacity. It was definitely the best film of the series so far.

Re: Abrams and Cruise Reuniting for Mission: Impossible 4

The second movie sucked hugely and should be de-canonized anyway (and since Cruise was marrying a different woman instead of Thandie Newton in III, I like to pretend it was ).

The first and the third ones were enjoyable though... I'm just not sure which one was better.

Ugh. More Hollywood bullshit. First the endless volley of remakes, now the ever continuing endless volley of unnecessary sequels.

Re: Abrams and Cruise Reuniting for Mission: Impossible 4

After the way Abrams nearly screwed up STAR TREK, I don't think I want him back helming MI4. What is he going to do? Hire another Evangeline Lilly lookalike? Or bring back his previous EL lookalike, Michelle Monaghan?

Good news. The 3rd was the best of the bunch. Abrams is perfect for the MI franchise due to his work on Alias (which I'm sure was inspired by the original MI tv series in part at least.

Sounds like a good idea to me, I just hope that Paramount will go for it as well.

If they do that, I will applaud wholeheartedly.

Actually, the first time I heard of a M:I film, the rumor was that Tom Cruise would simply be playing Jim Phelps himself. I wonder why they didn't do that. Did he think the character name 'Ethan Hunt' sounded better?

Re: Abrams and Cruise Reuniting for Mission: Impossible 4

First was a classic, second was a snoozes fest, and the 3rd was action action action....i would though like to see the 4Th movie move back to a team of IM agents like the first movie had.

If you want your modern day Mission: Impossible/A-Team, it's on the USA network and is called Burn Notice.
