Speaking of Hollywood’s favorite parlor game, I’d say right now that Tom Cruise is against the ropes and has a cut over his left eye, and that the industry crowd is starting to get a little bit excited at the possibility of seeing him hit the canvas, or at least watching him get slugged so many times he goes all wobbly in the knees. And yet Mission Impossible III (Paramount, 5.5) is paradoxically hanging in there , if for no other reason than the fact that people are hot for Phillip Seymour Hoffman‘ s bad-guy performance and, to a lesser extent, are up for what might happen with J.J. Abrams at the helm.
