Ethan Hunt has retired from IMF fieldwork. He trains recruits and has settled down with his fiancée, nurse Julia Meade, who is unaware of his real job. He is approached by IMF Assistant Director of Operations John Musgrave about a special mission to rescue one of his protégés, Lindsey Farris, who was captured while investigating arms dealer Owen Davian. Musgrave has already prepared a team for Ethan: Declan Gormley, Zhen Lei, and old partner Luther Stickell. The team rescues Lindsey in Berlin and collects two damaged laptops. As they flee, Ethan discovers an explosive pellet implanted in Lindsey's head. Before he can disable it with a defibrillator, it kills her.
IMF Director Theodore Brassel reprimands Ethan and Musgrave. Ethan learns that Lindsey mailed him a postcard before her capture and discovers a magnetic microdot under the stamp. IMF technician Benji Dunn recovers enough data from the laptops to determine Davian will be in Vatican City to obtain a mysterious object codenamed the \"Rabbit's Foot.\" Ethan plans an unofficial mission to capture Davian. Before leaving, he and Julia have an impromptu wedding at her hospital's chapel. The team successfully infiltrates the Vatican and captures Davian. On the return flight to the U.S., Davian is exceedingly calm under Ethan's brutal interrogation. After landing, Ethan learns that Lindsey's microdot contains a warning about Brassel and Davian.
Ethan Hunt has retired from field work for the Impossible Missions Force and instead trains recruits while settling down with his fiancée, Julia Meade, a nurse who is unaware of Ethan's true job. Ethan is approached by fellow IMF agent John Musgrave about a mission to rescue one of Ethan's protégés, Lindsey Farris, who was captured while investigating arms dealer Owen Davian. Musgrave has already prepared a team for Ethan: Declan Gormley, Zhen Lei, and his old partner Luther Stickell, who are waiting in Berlin.

Retired from active duty to train new IMF agents, Ethan Hunt is called back into action to confront sadistic arms dealer, Owen Davian. Hunt must try to protect his girlfriend while working with his new team to complete the mission.
In MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) faces off repeatedly with Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman), seemingly over a very expensive ($850 million) world-killing device they call the Rabbit's Foot, but really, over their boy stuff. They are, after all, hero and villain, and they're destined to duke it out for your viewing pleasure. Now married, Ethan has given up field ops to train new IMF agents, but he's called off on an impossible mission by Musgrave (Billy Crudup) to rescue former student, Lindsey (Keri Russell), who has been kidnapped by the diabolical Davian. Ethan's rushed off to meet with his old partner Luther (Ving Rhames), and the two get help in their series of high-octane action scenes, including a couple of beautiful newbies, Zhen (Maggie Q) and Declan (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), and an aptly twitchy tech, Benji (Simon Pegg).
Julia and a few other women wear dresses and tops that reveal cleavage; a female agent dons a very slinky dress to complete her part of an undercover mission. And as part of her ruse, she suggestively invites Ethan back to her apartment. A joke is made about incest.
Yes, if it wasn't for the ABC action drama Alias, we might not have J.J. Abrams' Mission: Impossible III. After he binged the first two seasons of the drama that asked \"What if Keri Russell's Felicity, but as an international spy on the side\", Cruise called up Abrams and got him and two of his Alias writers, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, to team up on a new script that would send Ethan Hunt on an entirely new mission: a mission to achieve domesticity. The premise of M:I III is that Ethan has retired from field work and is training a new crop of agents for the Impossible Mission Force. But when one of his proteges (played, naturally, by Russell herself) gets captured by mysterious forces, Ethan is lured back into the field by an old friend (Billy Crudup), all while trying to convince his demure and kind fiancee (Michelle Monaghan) that his life, and he, are perfectly normal.
Tramite i resti degli hard disk recuperati nella precedente missione, vengono a scoprire che Davian sarà alla Città del Vaticano per vendere una certa arma dal nome in codice di \"Zampa di Lepre\". La missione sembra andare a buon fine, infatti Davian viene catturato insieme alla sua valigetta contenente le informazioni su dove si trovi la Zampa di Lepre, però quando lo stanno portando nella struttura dell'IMF vengono attaccati da un elicottero guidato da mercenari, che recupererà Davian sotto gli spari di Ethan.
Poco dopo Davian chiamerà Ethan dicendo che per rivedere Julia, che è stata rapita, dovrà recuperare per lui la Zampa di Lepre entro 48 ore, ma proprio in quel momento delle guardie dell'IMF catturano Ethan, ormai considerato un criminale a causa dell'ultima missione a Roma, e così viene portato nella struttura dell'IMF e viene legato. John Musgrave, l'amico di Ethan, riesce a dargli una lametta per liberarlo così Ethan scappa e va a Shanghai dove viene raggiunto dal resto della squadra, e dove sanno che si trova la Zampa di Lepre. Ethan riesce a rubare la Zampa di Lepre da un palazzo di massima sicurezza, stordendo le guardie, e fa in tempo a chiamare Davian per salvare Julia.
Nel frattempo Julia con la beretta M9 di Ethan è costretta a uccidere John Musgrave che intanto stava entrando nell'edificio con la Zampa di Lepre ed era ignaro di chi ci fosse ad aspettarlo, così Julia riesce a rianimare Ethan e salvarlo. Ethan e Julia stanno per partire per la luna di miele, così lei fa conoscenza dei colleghi di lavoro di Ethan, e Brassel assicura a Ethan che per lui è tutto a posto e che la Casa Bianca non vede l'ora di assegnargli altre missioni, ma Ethan fa intendere a Brassel che per lui non ci saranno più missioni, ma solo una tranquilla vita con la donna che ama.
The Beretta 92G Elite 1A is the sidearm of Ethan Hunt during the mission to rescue Agent Ferris (Keri Russell). He passes it to Ferris during their escape and it is fitted with a tactical flashlight. Ethan also appears to carry one when he and the IMF convoy are ambushed on the Bay Bridge by operatives of Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman).
Several Barrett M82A1 sniper rifles are planted by Ethan in front of the warehouse before the rescue mission. Each rifle is mounted on a remote turret and is fed by two ammo drums. The rate of fire in the movie is most likely a rapid semi-automatic rather than a slow automatic rate of fire. The Barrett rifles are fired remotely by Luther (Ving Rhames).
One of the characters in the movie describes the villain Owen Davian as a weed, and points out that even if you pull him out, two more will grow up in his place. Why is it easy to become discouraged about trying to make a positive difference in the world when your efforts seem futile In what ways can losing hope affect your actions How do you react to situations that appear impossible to change
Ethan is in semi-retirement, only training new agents, and is engaged to Julia Meade (Michelle Monaghan), a nurse who thinks he works for the Virginia Department of Transportation. He is convinced to come out of retirement when he learns that one of his students Lindsey Farris (Keri Russell) has been captured. After the simultaneous success and failure of that mission, he takes over the student's case: tracking down the whereabouts of an elusive arms dealer named Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who is looking for an unspecified item known as the \"Rabbits Foot.\" 59ce067264
