Review:
Not sure why this movie got shit on like it did in the day, but I thought that it actually went down "okay" on video. Kilmer had a blast changing costumes and trying on different characters (and unlike the MI2 standard, he didn't have to wear a rubber mask at all times), and the story was allright also.

Sure, Shue seems to have forgotten her acting chops at home, and the whole Russian "cold fusion" story line was a bit, well, uninteresting, but there was enough in the movie for me to watch and somewhat enjoy it the whole way through.

Definitely not crap and maybe even worthy of a sequel, which HOPEFULLY would add some more action and some better secondary characters.

Although Rade Sherbedgia was great as the Russian leader dude with the swooping hair!
