Tom Cruise is a terrorist, arms dealer, and Ruthless AI An action-packed but long and somewhat predictable sequel. Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 It’s not quite as high as the helicopters in the great finale circling. This time we have submarine warfare, Venice, and an unstoppable train setting, with lots of running around in between. IMF teams face their biggest challenge with an adversary that can literally calculate every move. I’m a little tired. The lack of surprises and a few questionable plot holes are detrimental, but Cruise is a guaranteed commodity in delivering blockbuster popcorn movies.
A Russian nuclear attack submarine navigates the icy Arctic deep waters in a secret exercise. Carry special cargo with terrifying abilities. Entity is the world’s most advanced artificial intelligence. The officers gloated about their superiority when an unexpected signal appeared on their radar.
Ethan Hunt (Cruise) Wait for the tense courier in the dark. He receives a suicidal package containing a memorable refrain. CIA Director Eugene Kittredge (Henry Czerny) needs the IMF urgently. A former colleague of Hunt’s has half the stuff that must be salvaged at any cost. The equivalent is equally important, but its location remains unknown. Hunt must secure this first vital piece before he can find the other. There is another interesting wrinkle. No one knows the purpose of the finished device.
Reformation of the IMF
Ethan ventures into the Arabian desert in search of Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson). A $50 million bounty is on her neck. What was she into? She also tracks an army of the most fearsome mercenaries in the world. The relationship between Ethan and Ilsa is complicated. Are they friends or are they lovers?
Kittredge has a high-stakes meeting with the President’s National Security Advisor (Cary Elwes). Intelligence agencies discovered a black market money changer at Abu Dhabi airport. Kittredge was the first to acknowledge the existence of the IMF. Ethan, Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) are dispatched immediately. Things get complicated when a cunning thief (Hayley Atwell) plays duplicitous. The IMF adapts, but one glimpse of a new player can change the game completely. Ethan has not seen the villainous Gabriel (Esai Morales) since he brutally changed his life decades ago.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 What Happens When You Prey on Familiar Fear AI gains perception and ceases to take orders from its human master. The entity depicted by the cube of blue light in the algorithmic process is supremely terrifying. Nothing electronically connected can be trusted. Audio in earbuds and security monitors is easily faked. However, it is psychological manipulation that has proven to be most effective. The entity knows what Ethan values most.
Are you friends or are you lovers?
Director/Co-Writer Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher “Edge of Tomorrow”) visually unsatisfactory even the third time Mission Impossible Go out. The action scenes are great and worth the price of admission. From the underwater opening to the train climax of the masterpiece, it is beautifully shot. Practical CGI effects blend seamlessly with fluid editing. It’s clear that McQuarrie wants to transcend the scope and scale of his previous films.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 10 pages and ripped from bang scriptism. McQuarrie imagines action scenes for monsters and creates paths that tie them together. It is understandable that this entity is almost omniscient. What makes little sense is how the IFM and everyone in its tail keep bumping into each other. They don’t have the Entity’s abilities, but they continually show up to thwart its plans. This is especially noticeable in the headache-inducing second act. A logical problem arises in connecting many dots.
Ethan spends a ton of time running at top speed like a gazelle. Against a backdrop of smoky silhouettes, speed through rooftops, airports, and the streets of Venice. I love chasing my feet, but unfortunately sprinting is getting old in a 2:45 movie. McQuarrie’s goal is to show that Cruz is still fine as a fiddler at 61. It is already understood from the fact that he punches the bad guys. We didn’t need an actual marathon as part of the story.
A welcome addition to Mission Impossible
The addition of Hayley Atwell and villain Pom Klementieff, who plays a French assassin working with Gabriel, is a welcome addition. Atwell nailed the moment I was hooked. She is very sharp and tough, but at the same time she understands the depth of her own predicament. Working with Ethan is the only way she can survive. Klementieff mocks and laughs like a barbarian while inflicting evil punishments. They are the funniest characters.
part 1 I agree with the cliffhanger ending. The IMF’s purpose, easily guessed at first, will finally be revealed in next summer’s finale. This movie could have achieved the same goal if it was shorter. The filler isn’t invisible, but it does make it thinner, to be honest. The good news is that Cruz and McCurry haven’t lost a key entertainment factor. Action scenes dominate.they are not equal Mission: Impossible – Fallout But it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 A work by Tom Cruise and Skydance. Coming to theaters on July 12th paramount movies.
