    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I did not expect a 1:1 ratio of action sequences to faces peeled off by Tom Cruise.

    I can finally life the five-year subconscious weight of annoyance at myself for not seeing this right when it came out.

    ★★★★½

    I just realized that this is the first completely original film I've seen this year. Not only is the story 100% adaptation-free, but the technical components all work in harmony to give it a confident, unique feel.

    I guess this is the final release in the 10-year anniversary of the MCU, right? It truly is insane how little variation there is at this point, but even more insane that I still generally enjoy each of these movies every time they come out.

    With the exception of Black Panther (and to an extent GotG), it seems we probably can't ever expect much straying from:
    Virtually no distinguishable directing from movie to movie
    Some very good one-liners
    Almost no…
