Directed by Creator/BrianDePalma, the movie became well known for the interweaving and [[GambitPileup complicated plotting.]] (And the signature image pictured above) This is the least violent Mission Impossible film, by far. And given that you can clearly see an eye gouging for a few frames and that [=DePalma=] is the one helming this one, that's saying something. The film however was (and remains) very divisive among long-time fans of [[Series/MissionImpossible the TV series]] (due to who the villain is, and the fact the story tends to focus on a single character, rather than a team), and was publicly disavowed by at least two cast members of the original series.

-->'''Phelps''': …when you think about it, Ethan, it was inevitable… no more Cold War. No more secrets you keep from everyone but yourself, operations you answer to no one but yourself. Then one morning you wake up and find out the President of the United States is running the country - without your permission. The son-of-a-bitch! How dare he? You realize it’s over; you’re an obsolete piece of hardware not worth upgrading, you’ve got a lousy marriage and sixty-two grand a year.

* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler: Jim Phelps, the main protagonist of the original TV series, is the mole. It seems almost like a deconstruction of what the movie ''thinks'' is the 'idea' of Jim Phelps. He's a Cold War agent who ran his own show, but when the conflict is over he finds himself in a low-paying job without a say in policy and a lousy marriage to a woman he doesn't love, so he throws his morals out the window by selling out his country to work for money. Ethan Hunt works as a reconstructed successor to the antiquated "old spy" Jim Phelps, reaffirming his loyalty to his country after they turn on him and ushering in a new era of espionage.]]
