Mission Impossible (1996)

The first Mission Impossible still holds it's spot as the most stylish and somber in the MI franchise. It starts off with a job gone wrong, an agent getting disavowed and framed - all agents on his team dead, and turns into a daring mission to steal a NOC list, reveal the real villain, and get his cred back.

The mission's the main thing - both planning and execution, but the characters make it all the spicier. I'm especially happy to see Jean Reno making his way to the Hollywood scene with this one, and he does a grand job as semi-smart villainous sidekick. Luther (Ving Rhames) is a memorable personality too, as is the charismatic Max and her goons. And of course, Tom Cruise! It just wouldn't be the same without him.

The fourth or fifth time I watch this it feels like I have little to say about it, but it still held my attention from start to finish. It's the start of a franchise, and one of those action classics that never really grows old - even if the special effects aren't all up to modern standards. Great watch.
