In this episode of the podcast, we ask – is Mission Impossible III a triumph or… just okay? Is it a glorious high or an uninspiring return to form? While Karri struggles to locate the movie’s identity or anything truly worthwhile, Henrik takes a more generous view but admits that time has dulled some of its luster.
As they dive deeper, the hosts explore the film’s influence on the subsequent ‘Mission’ movies and whether they surpassed its achievements. The episode raises the question: where does Mission: Impossible III stand in the franchise’s evolution, and how has its legacy been impacted by the later films? With the benefit of hindsight, can we now fully appreciate MI3’s place in the larger context of the Mission: Impossible series?
While the hosts may not always agree on the film’s merits, one thing is certain: Mission: Impossible III is a movie.
