Mission: Impossible

Not only is this spy/thriller confusing as heck, it's both classy and exciting; a feat that only James Bond flicks ever seem to accomplish. Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt, the elite member of a team on a mission to stop bad guys from stealing the "NOC List," which is the names, addresses, serial numbers, whatever on each and every member of their intelligence agency. Okay, the first go around watching this flick, many will wonder "What the hay just went on here?" The plot is very involved and it's actually worth viewing it multiple times to try and get a firm grasp on it. Followed by a sequel in 2000 that many hail to be better (but I don't think so).
