MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 9.10PM, TDT
Tom Cruise’s squinty lead performance in this blockbuster remake of the old ’ 60s TV series remains an acquired taste for some. However, as pure overthe- top escapism, Mission: Impossible really cooks. The hi- tech garnish slapped on everything here – from the bravado of the opening credits to the slick secretagent gadgetry – covers for the more ridiculous moments of plot development. Watch especially for that great scene mid- way through where Cruise penetrates a high security vault armed with nothing but a rope and an acute sense of balance.
