And now, Tom Cruise not being Ethan Hunt.
I can kind of see how there was such a lukewarm reception to this. I don’t care. It’s kinetic, packed with locations, humor, and shady CIA politics which I fell for hook, line, and sinker.
I don’t think film buffs are aware of how well Cruise can act. I haven’t seen him in a turn like this. The audience connection is still based on charisma, sure, but he adds an ilk to this character that makes us a little weary of him. Is this acting? I don’t know.
Whatever. I liked this.
