MI3: Alias Storytelling At Its Best

I finally saw MI3 this weekend... I won't give away anything as many people have yet to see it, but it was pretty awesome. JJ's Alias-y storytelling really shined through, which of course I loved!

Like many Alias episodes, the movie starts out with an adrenaline-causing torture scene; we the audience have no clue what's going on, but are immediately involved. Then, JJ goes back and tells the story that leads up to the scene, giving us the "oooohhhh" moment. Of course, this only gets us through 4/5 of the movie, with a few great action scenes left.

Another parallel to Alias was how during the missions, Ethan & co. talked about their private lives over their earpieces. It took me right back to the Season 1 Syd/Vaughn flirting.

Finally - Keri Russell was amazing! As one reporter put it - she really channeled her inside Sydney Bristow! She wasn't in a whole lot of the movie (as I'd hoped and expected), but the parts she was in really showed that she is capable of way more than Felicity - can't wait to see her in more action flicks!

Definitely get out to see this one... it's a great way to kick-off the summer blockbusters.
