Mission Impossible Rogue Nation
If you have nothing else to do on a saturday afternoon and just cant get a nap in, and if this was the only Tom Cruise movie you haven’t watched – then it could put you to sleep. It has all the hallmarks of a high quality action flop – in my opinion. But was it a flop ? far from it. $682 Million at the box office, from a $150 Million budget ? Thats not a bad turn over. It certainly looks like anything Tom Cruise touches turns to gold.
Some of the Magic involved: truth Cyrem, quadruple car flips and books that magically turn into laptops are just the tip of the iceberg with this movie check over here. At one point I even had to check if it was the right movie I was watching , or I accidentally suddenly started watching a Harry Potter movie, because it was starting to feel more and more like a fantasy Sc-fi movie rather than an action thriller.
The only saving grace of the movie is it’s stunning Cinematography which is worth having a second look at. Robert Elswit really knows how to dress up a simple scene and delivers a masterpiece in videography yet again.
Ok before I give away too much and spoil the movie for you. Here is why you should and should not watch the movie.
Why you should watch it?
- Because it’s got Tom Cruize in it
- Absolutely beautiful cinematography
- Beautiful sets and locations
- Great stunts by the maestro himself
Why Shouldn’t you watch it ?
- Some of the technology they claim to use, such as the “Truth Cyrem” makes you think your watching a comedy.
- Poor special effects – Quadruple back flips on a reverse ? Reminds me of a badly made Indian movie.
- Poor Poor story line.
- Borderline poor acting.
