After such memorable quotes as "I'm not gonna abandon England for something like, I don't know...Mission Impossible 3", Simon Pegg has signed up for a role in the latest Mission Impossible film. News is that he is playing a goodie but that's really all we know so far but it looks like it's going to be good. Spaced-Out will keep you informed as soon as we know more.

I think my problem with the Mission: Impossible films is that they are more James Bond than Mission: Impossible, that and their being a "Look at Me!" vehicle for Tom Cruise.

I'm sorry; I meant, "Drop dead, *comrade*."

I would partially agree with you there. I thought that the opening 30 minutes of the first film "felt" like Mission Impossible. After that it went downhill... The turning of Jim Phelps and then meeting the "voice" on the tape I thought was wrong.

The second movie was a typical John Woo movie and nothing more... Enjoyable brainless action movie, but didn't have the intelligence or intrigue to be Mission Impossible.
