Mission Impossible (1996)

Our seasonal survey of "3 Non Bonds" kicks off with Josh's selection, 1996's "Mission Impossible". The teaser poster forewarned audiences to "expect the impossible"... which is another way of saying "suspend your disbelief, a whole lot of crazy is on the way"! And yet, the production confidently came in under budget and ahead of time. Most critics warmed to the performances and the ambitious vision of De Palma's slick, complex thriller but veteran fans and cast members of the original TV show stood aghast. Hold on to your facemasks, everyone, "Mission Impossible" is about to get some BBN treatment.
