Mission Impossible III may feature the finest opening (re-enacted above, presumably in jest) of a Tom Cruise film ever, in which a tired, contemptuous actor kills the superstar's wife as punishment for his inability to give a convincing performance. We learn later that all is not as it seems, but J.J. Abrams knew we would enjoy the out-of-context implications. Two montages of the Cruise ouvre (incorporating every film except Losin' It and Legend, as far as I noticed) are included on the DVD as ancillary evidence.
