08.11.12Netflix I rented this for a few reasons: Tom Cruise usually makes movies that are at least watchable, James Mangold usually makes movies that are at least watchable, and I'd heard it was so bad I thought maybe... again... everybody in the world was wrong and I would somehow be the only one to recognize the greatness.

Well, it wasn't that good.

However, I don't think it was really that horrible either. The problem is tone. This fits firmly in the Last Action Hero / Mr. and Mrs. Smith niche of goofy action films that try to be both comedy and action but usually fail by not really excelling at either. As that kind of movie it wasn't too bad. Cruise playing off his Mission: Impossible tropes is kind of cute. I guess it's confusing why this movie got made because these movies never ever work. Especially when you have a female lead written to do consistently idiotic things. Like annoyingly idiotic. Cameron Diaz completely does not work for me any more.

So oh well. A semi-interesting failure.
