Expect the Impossible.
When Ethan Hunt, the leader of a crack espionage team whose perilous operation has gone awry with no explanation, discovers that a mole has penetrated the CIA, he's surprised to learn that he's the No. 1 suspect. To clear his name, Hunt now must ferret out the real double agent and, in the process, even the score.

A suberb movie based on the hit 1988 - 1990 TV Show, director Brian De Palma (Carrie, Carlito's Way, Casualties of War, Rising Cain) gives us a suspense filled action thriller, that really captures the original TV series. Tom Cruise was well chosen to play the lead Ethan Hunt. Great film with the usual twists and turns one comes to expect from a Brian De Palma film. Original and best of the MI movies, although Ghost Protocol comes damn close.
