* HilariousInHindsight: In "Encore," William Shatner plays a 60-year-old gangster who's de-aged by the IMF for several hours. The show's idea of an old William Shatner is a bit at odds with how he really turned out...

* ValuesDissonance: Originally, the IMF were a group of people choosing to use their specific talents in spy work purely for the good of their nation. (Starting in 1966, still the era of "[[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country]].") This wouldn't have worked in the 1996 movie, so it made the IMF a deeply covert part of the US intelligence services. Even in the time of RichardNixon, the idea of American agents covertly manipulating foreign countries as heroes was going out of fashion, and in later seasons the IMF spent most of their time working their wiles on organised crime at home. (Although in the revival and the movies they got to travel around the world again.)

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The UsefulNotes/NintendoSixtyFour game. It was a stealth adventure that very loosely followed the movie's plot. Though a [[SoOkayItsAverage fairly decent]] game with some neat ideas, it suffered from bland (and often OffModel) graphics, [[ObviousBeta numerous bugs and glitches]], and frustrating TrialAndError gameplay.

* SophomoreSlump: While some moviegoers appreciated the easier-to-follow storyline, the second movie is considered inferior despite the flashy action. The third film was seen as much better and getting things back on track. Fourth and fifth are the best reviewed films in the series.

** Once you get beyond the theme tune, the films's scores are pretty awesome as well (DannyElfman did the first one, HansZimmer the second and Creator/MichaelGiacchino the third and fourth). Of particular note is "Kremlin with Anticipation" from ''Ghost Protocol'', with the Ominous Russian Chanting.

* EvenBetterSequel: An unusual case where each film has (bar Creator/JohnWoo's entry, see below) received better critical reviews than the last one, with many calling ''Ghost Protocol'' the best installment.
