Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023)

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie

Starring Tom Cruise, Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames


Same formula as the other Mission Impossible films, and it’s a formula that doesn’t excite me. Hunt is a rogue government agent who is smarter and more noble and more daring than both the good guys and the bad guys. How different is this from the Bourne or Bond franchises?

Action is pretty good, especially the fight scene shot in extremely narrow alley and the bonus train sequence at the end. Cruise does well for a man in his 60’s. How many more action movies can Cruise make? Perhaps Atwell is being positioned to take over the franchise?
