I'm a little sorry to see headlines mourning Tom Cruise's diminished box office for Mission: Impossible 3.

Despite his extracurricular activities, Cruise is still a likeable screen presence , and M:I-3 , as directed by J.J. Abrams , is like a long, exciting Alias episode.

It's definitely better-plotted than the previous two. Things generally seem to happen for a reason and not just to string stunts together, although there are some nice set-pieces.

It's really worth tearing yourself away from the living room TV to see it on the big screen.

Tom Cruise is suddenly on the outs in Hollywood. It happens to every big actor eventually. I remember when Kevin Costner was huge, and then suddenly he could do nothing right. The same is happening to Cruise now, although it's clearly a kind of emotional backlash and not based on any actual rational analysis of his acting.
