Goofs

During the lab shoot out Ethan throws a black pouch filled with explosives toward the wall, now since he's a "secret agent" we'd have to assume that it's something like c4 (a common military explosive). c4 and other common plastic explosives are very stable a bullet hitting them would not detonate ,only a blasting cap or det cord would cause them to explode there made to withstand things like this so no accidental detonation occurs (atleast in that respect). Now if say he filled the pouch with something like nitroglycerine shooting it would cause it to explode but that's not possible because it's so unstable that him walking with it on him and bouncing around it would have blew up way before the lab shoot out occurred (like him flying down the shaft).

Sets a New High for Stunts
5 September 2000 | by Bob-45See all my reviews

If you sometimes go to the movies to be entertained by unbelievably daring stunts, this is the movie to see. From Cruise's incredible rock climb to nail-biting motorcycle "joist" this movie impresses with the stunts. The plot could be written on the back of a postage stamp. However, that's rarely what audiences go to see films like this for. The performances are above average, particularly Dougray Scott and Thadie Newton. A pity Newton's character is underused during the second half of the film. Besides being beautiful, this woman can ACT! It is also refreshing to see a demonstrably romantic and affectionate interracial relationship portrayed on screen in such a positive manner. Newton's race never comes up in the film. Credit producer Tom Cruise for this one. This is one of those movies I'd rent to give my home theatre system a workout. This movie succeeds on its own level; however, I can understand how others could be disappointed. I gave this one a "7" on the IMDB scale.

By the way, it was a clever touch to have Cruise receive his mission briefing via wrap-around sunglasses. Kind of nice to be reminded of RISKY BUSINESS.
