The action sequences are decent - that infamous "hacking a computer in mid-air" scene still holds up, as does the admittedly rather ludicrous climax on top of a bullet train (though that might just be amusement at the less-than-spectacular quality of the special effects).
So overall Mission Impossible is a fun action film with a very interesting plot that keeps you on your feet, great cast overall and very well done special effects.
After that, he meets the CIA officer, Eugene Kittridge, and he tells Ethan the whole operation was actually a test to find a mole inside the secret agent service.
