Agree with all other reviewers that this is not the best MI film. For me the plots are predictable and Cruse comes across too "theatrical" for his character but that's my opinion as one who was never a Cruise fan to begin with anyway. Still, the movie does take you for a ride and there is some suspension of reality in watching it. Like others, I say if you want a mindless action flick this can be one...not the best one however. #ShiftvW8

Probably not the best of the MI movies, but being a John Woo fan since I saw his Hong Kong movies A Better Tomorrow (1986) and The Killer (1989) both in 1991, I've been a fan ever since. This time out the movie is mainly focused on Woo's stylised action sequences, the car chase with Thandie Newton, the motorbike stunts, the gun play. The problem lies in the way the movie plays out and with the homage it pays to Alfred Hitchock's 1946 film Notorious starrring the late great Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, the core story, some scenes and even some of MI:2's dialogue even are directly taken from the Hitchcock classic. But all in all, as I don't think this is up there with Mission Impossible and Ghost Protocol it is darker and more stylised and in truth, little OTT but if your looking for 2hrs of leave brain at door (as we do with any Michael Bay movie, lol), then you should sit back and enjoy the ride, then watch Ghost Protocol for a more real MI experience.
