Mission Impossible III – the secret of the rabbit’s foot NOT REVEALED HERE!


Though NOT to be confused with the superb TV series which had a sophistication and charm notoriously lacking in all 3 Mission films, MI III is fun and fairly clever with one excellent plot twist I won't reveal here.

Calling it "action packed" would be an understatement. It's a (PG 13!) orgy of torture, murders, extrajudicial killings, bombings, explosions, implanted head detonators, defibrillators, and …..  Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise marriage references.

I could certainly believe Seymour Hoffman as an evil international bad guy, and Lawrence Fishburn as IMF spymaster, and even Tom Cruise as super spy, but what was HARD TO BELIEVE was how close Tom's real life beau Katie Holmes looks to his movie beau Michelle Monaghan.

Scary, right?

Which brings me back to the film. Outtakes have revealed that the China made "Rabbits Foot" which was the subject of great interest to bad and good guys alike is a super sensitive biometric identification device that can help Tom determine if the girl he's with is actually Katie or Michelle. Without it Tom's pending marriage would be at risk. Given the multi billion success of the Cruise film empire palimony is incredibly expensive, helping to set the Rabbit's Foot's price tag, which WAS mentioned in the film, at $680 million.

Money well spent I'd say.

    the rabbit foot is a MacGuffin , its like a plot or a device in a film which advances the story basically the Rabbits Foot is a code name for a secret bio chemical device which could pollute a certain area and make a big impact by killing people, whoever has it is known to have luck thats what the rabbits foot is ‘Luck’ its just a code name

    If I choose to live in a world where with everything there are gifts. For example your Rabbit’s Foot answer, then I wonder if Tom cruise’s marriage to Katie Holmes (whom I’ve seen in person up close: very cute- plus my room mate met her & they danced together) perhaps that marriage is a contract so that the masses believe their beloved movie star is not a homosexual. Imagine how many religious straight to the book anti gay movie ticket dollars would change hoe they feel about TC. What if there are underlines like a code about their personal situation. If there is such a contract then when it’s done the marriage should be off. Some say Kim Kardashian did something similar. The Rabbit’s Foot could be the secret information that would ruin Tom Cruise and effect the business if Scientology.
    Again this could be what is behind the secret curtain sort of speaking. Disguised in all this action story.

    I also think that the gentleman’s referrence of the MacGuff is a great answer. Now if I just choose to have a closed kind of mind then I would feel ripped off from our host’s answer & think it’s a bunch of crap but is it? How do we know 4 sure? We are not the pupet masters on that project. Others are. Others who we don not know up close & personal plus on an everyday basis.

    Personally I think MI 1 & 4 are the best with 3 then 2.

    I must say I still really want tot know what truly is the Rabbit’s foot? Lawrence Fishburn’s character tells ethan to find out he has to come back to the IMF, In MI4 he does. Does that mean he was told & is the answer in #4?

  6. It is called a red herring in a movie you moron. Think Pulp Fiction and what is in the brief case. It DOES NOT MATTER. The screenwriters do not care what it is and neither do the film makers. Take a film class. The rabbit’s foot is a simple example of a movie’s red herring. What it actually is, means nothing.

  7. Benji says:

    Watch the film again and everyone listen to Benji (Pegg knows a lot about this kind of stuff) when he explains what he thinks it is to Ethan & Luther. When Ethan asks Brassel what is Rabbits foot at the end, it was just an annoying directors/script writers effort at cliff hanging/grab the audience to come back for Mi4 with a clever little play on dialogue “if I tell you will you stay…” that is all.

  8. Nate Lee says:

    The rabbits foot, when you open the container, the splinter in your mind dissolves and so you can then skate through the kingdom on Earth without confusion or conflict-like a fish in water.. just like how Lawrence “Fishburn” moved when Ethen asked what the rabbits foot was… watch him closely moving from side to side.. that is a real rabbits foot secret… that dern “Matrix” of splinters… nevermind… lol…

    • Randomisity says:

      funny. Should i say “Not helpful at all?”
      I agree that the rabbit’s foot is just a fad that made people want to make people watch mi4. A stupid fad, i would say, that made a lot of people like me extremely annoyed.
