No. German actor Andreas Wisniewski starred in both franchises (and in Die Hard!). He is best known for his portrayal of Necros in the 1987 Bond film The Living Daylights and as Max's henchman in the 1996 blockbuster Mission: Impossible, and as one of Hans Gruber's (Alan Rickman) henchmen, Tony, in the 1988 blockbuster Die Hard. Update: Actress ...

"He relies on luck", might not be the right choice of words here. I would like to put as "He takes huge risks and he is not afraid of taking on these insanely difficult tasks" In other words, he attempts things, which seem impossible. Hence the name Mission Impossible. In MI 2, we have the rock climbing scene, where he slips and almost falls, but he ...

Well, the bible is not just from Chicago, but especially from the Drake Hotel in Chicago, where Jim lived as he said earlier. This is quite a coincidence, considering that Jim wouldn't have any reason to steal a bible from the hotel. On the other hand Job surely needs a bible for the communication cypher with Max based on bible quotes. So it is the mere ...

From the script online: KITTRIDGE (CONT'D) I want to show you something, Ethan. He now shoves the papers across the table. They're xeroxed copies of a Wisconsin bank account in the name of DONALD and MARGARET ETHAN HUNT. It shows a balance of $127, 000. KITTRIDGE (CONT'D) Since your ...

The only valid explanation that comes to mind is that Jim Phelps wanted to frame someone so the file could be closed instead of an open-end investigation that could lead to his capture ultimately!

Jack's basically warning him that's it's dangerous with a playful schoolyard phrase. Originally, this is supposed to be a play on Spanish goodbye phrases Hasta la vista, Hasta luego and Hasta manana ('Goodbye', 'till we meet again' and 'until tomorrow') with the childish twist of turning it into a food item and tacking a rhyme on in the end. It's similar to ...

Ethan works at the Impossible Mission Force (IMF), which in the movie is a US government office that use the services when even the CIA can't interfere in black ops. Why the IMF isn't public like the CIA? The IMF is a specialized group of expert agents that remain hidden from the public eyes. If the IMF were revealed to exist, the United States would be ...

I am pretty sure the asker is asking about the Mission Impossible film series because there was no character named Ethan Hunt in the the TV series. Ethan hunt was the name of the IMF operative in the film series. The films feature Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, an IMF agent. And in the film series, he never refused a mission, we know that.

It's not part of the elevator, it's some kind of folding blade thing. The point (sorry) is just to show that it is actually a trap, and Jack just hasn't lost control of the elevator by chance.

TLDR: Jack needed access to the circuity of the elevator to be able to upload Sarah's thumbprint and ID picture into the embassy's security system. From the script: JACK, wearing black coveralls and slightly odd-looking eyeglasses (they're called Visco glasses), enters an elevator shaft through a small door at the base of the wall. He ...

Well, I'd dare to say their relationship was never that strong and it certainly didn't get better from her engagement with Ethan, may that have been staged at the beginning. When she approaches Jim (or rather Ethan in the Jim costume, with the real Jim eavesdropping from behind) at the start of that scene, she pledges for him to leave Ethan alive, although ...

Jim just wanted to leave as soon as possible after taking the money. He had killed his wife because she was ordering him to not kill Ethan and also because it seemed she was soft/ taking a liking to Ethan.
