Rotten: The sad truth is that Ethan will always be better at saving the world than saving his marriage and fans of the first two films are likely to find the agent's journey of the heart an unwelcome distraction

A wholly entertaining action movie, but who here is really afraid of Philip Seymour Hoffman? Dude looks more like he'd bake you some cookies before he'd threaten to kill your wife. I think my biggest disappointment with this movie is how far it moved the series away from actual espionage and into the "a lot of shit is exploding" category. Granted, I haven't seen the second film, and the first one wasn't 100% subtle either, but it was at least a bit more subdued. What sets this apart from God-awful pyrotechnic abortions like Transformers is that it manages to do its fiery business without insulting your intelligence. J.J. Abrams plays with the plot in some neat ways, like keeping the exposition lean to focus on the good stuff. When it comes right down to it, we really didn't need to know what the Rabbit's Foot did exactly...we could fill it in with our imaginations, and that granted Abrams five more minutes to put together one of his nifty set pieces. Some probably consider it lazy writing; I call it progressive. Strong performances and film-making all around. Good, but just not unique.
