(film review) - Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One




Perhaps the longest Mission Impossible name title, maybe...but I'd be lying if I told you I was not hyped for this movie. Are you kidding me? I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, Ethan Hunt is THAT GUY! He is one of my favourite characters in film and I don't have many. I would need to sit down and think about my characters, but the Mission Impossible franchise has been going on since 1996, the film franchise anyway, as it was a TV show in the 80's. The films just seem to get better and better. And maybe part of the excellence of this franchise is the sheer dedication of Tom Cruise and his stunts and what he puts into this franchise. The story is never dull. The action is always great. The drama is thick with tension and...and whilst gadgets are minimal, with everything working together with synergy, the Mission Impossible movies just deliver for the espionage action spy seeker like me...and others, of course.


This trailer, just like the music, gradually climbs to where we leave off at the end, Tom Cruise performing a real stunt. At first I didn't like the music choice, but as the visuals and scenes were getting better and the music's seeps into the Mission Impossible theme, we gradually get to see more in these quick cuts, such as the regular characters returning with some added new ones like Hayley Atwell and the guy from Ozark, Elsia...I think. A Mission Impossible movie would not be a Mission Impossible movie if we didn't see Tom Cruise Sprinting to save the world or riding a motorcycle to save the world. These are his "go-to's". Oh, and also, there has been a few films with car chases and doors not attached to the cars, hurtling down small European roads. Imagine this is just the teaser and it is exhilarating enough as it is. Definitely something I am looking forward to.
