Tom Cruise continues as Ethan Hunt, a secret agent whose last mission went wrong and set in motion a sequence of events that will lead to nuclear catastrophe if he doesn’t correct his wrong. This installment is completely entertaining even if the plot is a bit ridiculously predictable. The action scenes are long and harrowing – it seems that Hunt finds himself in one extremely precarious situation after another, with nary a pause, and the director shoots the film in a way that keeps the suspense going from the beginning to the very end. I was never bored and completely caught up in what was going on with him onscreen. It was also fun to see a 50-something agent still managing to successfully battle the forces of evil; however, you leave wondering if he still has it in him for one more mission (and I am sure he does!) Thumbs up for an old fashion action movie that never lets up and yields old fashioned big-screen action entertainment. I only watched one of the early Mission Impossible movies; I wasn’t a huge fan of the film or the actor, but after watching this, I need to rethink my decision and watch the earlier films if they are anything like this one.
