    Migration

    ★★½

    I have to hand to the marketing team at Illumination-they done a real number on me. I had zero interest in seeing Migration but months of being unable to avoid the trailer inevitably resulted in me heading to the cinema with my family on opening weekend.

    “If you build it, they will come”.

    Or if you’re Tom Cruise, if you produce high-octane, no frills entertainment…they will come. In 2020s Hollywood, Cruise seems to be one of the very few people left that seem to grasp that. 

    I’m not even referring to the increasingly daredevil stunt work that Cruise inserts himself front and centre of - though there is no doubt that he does so out a pure passion for his craft. My point was a more general…
