|05.10.20||Internet|| Recommended by a friend. Solid action movie but for some reason the third act still bored me a little. Weird to say considering it was, like, helicopter chase scenes and nuclear bombs and shit... and Cruise is one dude who's like "no, put hanging from the helicopter for real" but... still. I kind of marvel at how technically difficult all this stuff is, but part of me rejects anything once it gets to fate of the world stakes. Might as well be Captain America fighting Thanos or whatever. Mostly I feel like this just fuels Tom Cruise's weird superhero real life even more. Climbing mountains and jumping out of planes and... running... real fast... Like, I get it... the world is your playground. Cool for you. Ving Rhames continues to have the best part in these movies because he gets to go to all the places then sit in a van or stare at some prop talking to himself. Even Simon Pegg had a fight scene in this one. Meanwhile Ving's chilling at craft services.|
Propably the best part was the various car chases in London. Always love a good car chase. And that weird arm-cocking thing that Henry Cavill does in the bathroom fight scene. Loved that.
