episode 229: The Personal Stakes

Mission: Impossible III.

The second Mission: Impossible movie might have been a hit but it was not to be smooth sailing for the third installment as it would see two directors leave because of creative differences before Tom Cruise would hire JJ Abrams of Alias fame to direct his first major motion picture.

In this episode of The 602 Club hosts Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris welcome John Champion to talk about Mission: Impossible III. We discuss the new mission, going with Abrams, a cold open, the story, villains above us, something old and new, Julia, action, music and our ratings.
