20 Years Ago: Mission: Impossible


It might seem like a while but 20 years ago now, the first Mission: Impossible movie entered theatres.  This is an odd series in that it seems to have aged well.  The movies to me defy the rigours of sequelism, where everything sort of goes downhill.

But we shouldn’t forget the first movie either.

It had music by Danny Elfman and U2, starred everyone’s favourite espionage scumbag Jon Voight and took the series in a more realistic direction, contemporary at least.  The film by the way, was a monster success.  457 million is not to be sniffed at and even less so in 1996.

The last one, Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation, got a thumbs up from ManlyMovie.  And so we look forward to the next one…
