No stone left unturned. They are the absolute best available. And they are loyal. In the MI series there would be NO betrayals. Yet all the MI movies are based on an insider betrayal. Like the people selecting these MI agents are going to miss the "will betray team for personal gain" part? Doubtful. Which is why I say they are great action movies, but horrible MI titles.
I wouldn't say there would be no betrayals...but I would say Jim Phelps never would have been a traitor. That killed the first movie for me.
The second one was poor too, what happens when you let John Woo direct what ought to be a plot-oriented flick.
