    Nothing of what made the original tv show cool and weird is on display in these films.

    These are just second hand 007 films made to feed the ego and fulfill the fantasies of its aging lead action star.

    I watched one of them last night, i think it was the one before this one but i shouldn't think it matters. It was entertaining enough but nothing to write home about, i expect this to just be another solid action movie.

    Same. Kinda in that mood for one. Plus I generally like Cruise

    Watching either 4 or 5 in half an hour. It's too hot to sleep anyway.

    As for Cavill and his infamous moustache, he clearly made the right choice... or Paramount made it for him, whatever.

    Really wish they had done something more interesting with the story. I must have watched another +30 films, with the same 'we must stop terrorists with nukes' plot. It literally was the plot in in the fourth Mission Impossible film.

    The promise in the prologue was great; Hunt having nightmares about the demise of his ex-wife and then the failed mission, resulting in three cities being destroyed and Hunt looking like a ghost of regret. But it was all a hoax, similar to the prologue of the very first MI film.

    Get better writers for the next one, please.
