It is quite amazing that after 22 years and six films the Mission Impossible franchise is still going strong, and the movies are getting better all the time. This is another edge-of-your seat. nail biting, action flick that will have you holding your breath and squirming in your seat trying to avoid the things flying at you.
The cast is incredible with several past characters making dramatic returns as well as a strong role for Henry Cavill. They all bring a dynamic to the film that could not be achieved by lesser actors.
There are only two things that I didn't like about this film. First, the twist was way to easy to figure out. I had it nailed in the first few minutes of the movie, then it was just a matter of waiting around for the film to catch up with what I already knew. I'm sure you'll figure it out early as well. Second, the movie is way too long. It is just shy of 2 1/2 hours. At that length, the truly impossible mission is trying to watch the whole movie without going to the bathroom.
Aside from those minor annoyances, this is a fun, fast-paced, action-packed film that is a great popcorn flick from beginning to end. It has all of the old tricks and gimmicks that made the original TV show fun to watch, but it also keeps itself current with all of the high tech gadgets.
If you are looking for a good action flick, this may be the best one of the Summer.
