Mission: Impossible III

(USA/Germany, 2006, 124 minutes)

IMF agent Ethan Hunt goes rogue to save his fiancee from the hands of a merciless arms dealer. Third in the series of star vehicles based on the 1960s spy TV series is a welcome if flawed attempt to give emotional resonance to what is essentially a succession of daring action setpieces; the star hinders as much as it helps a script that doesn’t seem to have been developed enough.
