The third entry in Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible film series involves super Impossible Mission Forces (IMF) agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) being forced back into the field just when he was planning on marrying his girlfriend, Julia (Michelle Monaghan). The agency asks Hunt to save an operative (Keri Russell) he trained after weapons dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman) kidnaps her. With the help of his field team -- played by Ving Rhames, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, and Maggie Q -- Hunt achieves his goal, but becomes involved in a web of double-crosses that leave him wondering if he can trust his superiors (Billy Crudup and Laurence Fishburne). Eventually Davian threatens Julia's life in order to get away with his evil plan. Simon Pegg appears as an IMF tech expert. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Special Agent Ethan Hunt returns but this time he has withdrawn from active duty to focus on his personal life. Still involved with IMF as an instructor, Ethan is drawn back into the field when one of his former students is captured. When the extraction doesn't go as smoothly as planned, Ethan becomes the target of an investigation when it becomes clear that a mole is working deep within IMF. On the run and cut off from his agency, Ethan and rag tag group of IMF agents must get to the bottom of the conspiracy before a new technology codenamed Rabbit's Foot falls into the wrong hands.
