Mission: Impossible III

Overall Rating: # # # (3 Buckets o' Popcorn)
Merlin's Grade: # # # (3 Buckets o' Popcorn)
Michele's Grade: (? Buckets o' Popcorn)
(Merlin) An all right movie, but I was disappointed. I felt the story had no continuity with the other two movies and went in a weird direction that didn't really work for me. I felt the whole idea of Ethan Hunt having a desk job training newbies just seemed ridiculous. I didn't really feel the chemistry between Ethan and his wife, especially compared to the love interest in the second film. The movie also skirted the edge of cheesy-ness (Much like Alias, which isn't surprising considering the director is JJ Abrams... don't get me wrong, I love Alias, but it does have some cheezyness.) I did LOVE the baddie in this one... He just was so totally and unrepentantly Evil with a capital E. Overall, a good-bordering-excellent movie if taken alone, and good-bordering-so-so if compared to the other two.
