Flick Pick: M:I III

(Paramount, 2006)

Third entry in the Mission:Impossible franchise. Critics had fun dissing it, and everyone had fun taking potshots at Tom Cruise for his off-screen antics, but the movie actually on the screen was a solid action blockbuster, with one of the best plots in the series, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman one of the best screen villains since Hannibal Lecter. Final revenge was at the box office, where all the gas and venomous ink directed at the movie fell into oblivion, and audiences went to watch to the tune of nearly $400M.
