Mission: Impossible 3

New this month Question: In the bridge attack scene, a missile hits a vehicle, and throws it a several yards. Look at how close Ethan is to the blast. Shouldn't that kind of explosion have seriously injured, if not killed him?

Question: Maybe I didn't pay attention when I last saw this film, but when the IMF traitor reveals to Ethan that the Julia in front of him is Davian's translator disguised as her, he says that she (the translator) failed Davian at the Vatican. How exactly did she fail him? Did I miss something?

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: It's stated that she's not just a translator, she's actually Davian's head of security. Given that he was snatched by Ethan's team on her watch, the depth of her failure is quite clear.

Question: What is the Rabbit Foot? It was never really explained in the movie or did I miss something?

Chosen answer: It's never explained. This is what's known in the film industry as a McGuffin, a term popularised by Alfred Hitchcock, which is an item that's crucial to the plot, but the exact nature of which is never revealed because it actually doesn't matter in the slightest.

Question: When Benji Dunn is guiding Ethan through the streets via satellite to find his wife at the end of the film, Ethan is on a silver phone. Does anyone know the make and model it was? I've been told that it is a Bang and Olufsen but I can't find it.

Chosen answer: It's a Nokia N92. Nokia had promotional tie-ins with the film, and all the phones in the film were made by them.

Question: When the IMF-team fake the DHL-van breaking down, some drivers from other cars join in on the shouting that ensues. Ethan looks at a man shouting something, and he responds by raising his arm at the man with his handpalm up. What exactly does it mean in Italy when you make that kind of gesture?

Chosen answer: Pretty much what it looks like, enraged annoyance.

Owen Davian: We've implanted an explosive charge in your head. Does that sound familiar?

Mistakes

Bare shoulders are forbidden in the Vatican premises, so the sexy dresses in the party would not be allowed.

Trivia

The scene in which Julia brings Ethan back to life is copied almost identically from the scene in "Lost" (Director JJ Abrams' hit TV show) where Charlie is brought back to life. Incidentally, you can hear the "Lost" music played throughout the show, most noticeable when Davian is about to pick up the gun to kill Julia.
