Slick, technically proficient Hollywood hocus-pocuys delivers thrills aplenty, as Cruise, Hoffman and director JJ Abrams reinvigorate a floundering franchise with this energetic romp. Nice to spot Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul as a (very) minor character (guess we all have to start somewhere) and to see Michelle Monaghan take it to Cruise in the acting department. A ripper.
Like being trapped in an elevator with somebody suffering from UBS, Mission: Impossible II rankles the nose and offends the spirit. Bereft of coherent logic, devoid of passion, and brimming with pompous, gargantuan action that means little, this sequel to DePalma’s sl0w-burn success is borderline unwatchable. If you removed the copious slow-motion in this thing, you’d have a 30 minute travelogue of Australia.
Tense, exciting spy thriller has Tom Cruise in top gear as a superspy, much like James Bond only without the sexy-suave attitude, and although the film plods through some minor talky moments, has more than enough twists and turns to keep this genre fan happy.
Terrific, labyrinthine thriller plays more like a Bond film than any Mission Impossible film we’ve seen to-date, Ghost Protocol might just be the most intelligent of the four entries into the franchise thus far. Cruise plays himself once again, and he’s ably assisted by a terrific cast all delivering the goods in their supporting roles. Brad Bird helms the film like he’s been doing it forever, with plenty of thrills, spills and spy-game activities to keep the John Woo fans at bay once again. A terrific film: most definitely worth your while.
