Mission: Impossible is an American film starring Tom Cruise, where a agent suspected of spying on his own organisation sets out to find the real rat alone.

This is the possibly the coolest film that I have ever seen. Firstly, the theme tune is amazing and catchy, which makes it very exciting, and although many of the scenes and battles in the movie were completely preposterous, it was great fun to watch.

The film involves numerous spy gadgets that can easily outdo anything that James Bond has ever done, especially the face mask thing, which is brilliant! At first glimpse, this film seems to be just the action movie stereotype, which it is, however it is actually the film which caused everyone else to copy the format, so this is really genesis.

Also, the story was not at all predictable, so it was very exciting to watch throughout, so that’s why I’ll give it an 8, for being seriously cool as well as exciting and very entertaining for me.
