MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – DEAD RECKONING PART ONE
With Tom Cruise and Haley Atwell
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
This movie’s name should really just be “TOM!” been, because no soul refers to the full title. It’s just too long and complicated.
Abroad, it has been written about audiences becoming “sequel-weary”, and that the long title counts against the extroverted and breathtaking action movie. Therefore, it did not perform quite as well at the box office as expected.
However, this does not take away from the fact that the seventh Mission: Impossible is not exceptionally entertaining. Some of the daredevil stunts, which Tom Cruise of course, especially after the tremendous advertising, performed himself, you have never seen.
The fact that one is aware that Cruise himself drove off a cliff, and is running himself, serves as a further adrenaline injection. It’s supersonic fun and has the power of 20 testosterone treatments.
It is about the daring spy Ethan Hunt, who this time has to fight against artificial intelligence, also known as AI or AI. How do you fight something that is invisible?
The movie functions as an action extravaganza where the audience gets a breather between daring stunts, only to be confronted anew by the impossible, where one roller coaster ride is worse and bigger than the other.
Tired of a monotonous life characterized by load shedding and a water shortage between the potholes and horrible traffic? Then will Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One shoot you past the stars.
(9/10) In theaters only.
