    One of the best opening ten minutes ever, just great stuff. Visually beautiful film with a great Tangerine Dream score and two awesome heist scenes. I just wish there was more music and I feel like it could be a little bit tighter.

    I think this is now my favorite MI film. Great set pieces, balls to the walls action and great performances by Tom Cruise, as usual, and Rebecca Ferguson. And they really shot the hell out of her, she looks better than ever in this. That turtleneck on Sean Harris, nice touch.

    Liked it even more now on a rewatch. Damn, this is good and it obviously reminds me of some really good movies from the glorious 80s. Two really great performances from Dan Stevens with his steely azure blue eyes and Maika Monroe, who I'm sure we'll see more of in the near future. Always good to see Lance Reddick. Love the climax, the setting of it and the music, the music is on the whole right on the money. Stevens is damn near unrecognizable from Downton Abbey, it's almost uncanny.

    I like this movie a lot. I prefer the first group of girls, I think the writing is stronger in this part, and we get a little bit of Eli Roth who I think is quite funny in his short appearance. The lap dance is impressive I have to say. Then in the second half of the movie we get the awesome car chase, which is one of the best that I've seen. Kurt Russell is good and his hair looks quite nice too. All is good.
