Where it stands in the series: first one was okay, second was awful, third was quite good, fourth was okay, this one is lame. Some idiot critic is claiming this better than Bond and Bourne. On the whole these movies are not nearly as good as the best Bonds but better made overall than the Bournes which in my book were very sloppy after the first one.
It has much of the signature style, clock ticking set pieces, trick identities, etc., but this time it's all so very, very tired! I've seen this movie before a hundred times! The plot is typically convoluted and silly. Jeremy Renner is useless and annoying. Alec Baldwin doesn't seem to know if he's in a serious movie or an SNL sketch. The audience seemed to be laughing at the movie not with it over some of the silly dialogue exchanges (Then again the audience partially applauded at the end, it was made up of at least half morons I'd say judging for some of the wasteoids sitting near me, probably professional critics looking to have a bright day and cut this dud a break. That's how they roll, it's all in the release timing, they were ready for a more serious non-superhero movie so they unjustifiably praise this no matter how lackluster it actually is. What stupid idiots! They should be all sued in class action for incompetent financial advisement.)
This whole Cruise did it for real stunt thing with the plane (makes no difference whatsoever in a pretend story, this isn't sports where the outcome is unknown, we know he was fine in real life), the underwater bit (that he actually held his breath for 6 minutes making that scene is such an absurdly preposterous account being told to the press and it's not even questioned as an outright lie is it? Michael Phelps couldn't do that on his best day.) Another is that he did all his own stunt driving, fine but then the scene goes so obviously CGI by the end that it calls the integrity of everything they are saying into question! The whole gimmick of his doing his own stunts to sell this movie is so passé nowadays. It meant something when Ford did it on "Raiders", but it just doesn't matter now. The problem was way back when you could see the stuntman actually in the frame, or you didn't show faces for that reason. Now with actors' faces digitally painted onto stuntmen or with outright digital doubles being used it's irrelevant.
I still think Tom Cruise is a great movie star and a very good actor. He should do more serious movies at this point and not this kind of big expensive junk just to stay popular and land box office. A trend amongst all older super stars and the other older ones are even more guilty of it.… Full Review »

It manages to twist all characters from good to evil, careless and dumb. It is another try to justify evil, and to portrait the victims as the real villains. The only good part is that Disney seems to be learning from its mistakes (this one), as the new Cinderella movie (2015) is perfect.… Full Review »

Ok to start things off Ted 2 is really funny and better then A Million Ways to Die in the West, the movie does do a couple movie spoofs which are fun. But the Jurassic Park spoof was funny but they completely repeat word for word what they say in JP, they also spoof Planes, Trains and Automobiles. There a lot of moments were l laughed out loud which is a big win for the movie but, they're two problems, the first Ted is obsolete compared to Ted 2 because Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are divorced which just shows all that John (Mark Wahlberg) goes through is for nothing, and Donnie is back just to do what he did in the first Ted movie. But it's still a funny movie, almost as funny as Spy. Ted 2 is defiantly worth watching and is a really enjoyable movie.… Full Review »

Director Christopher McQuarrie has another amazing team up with Tom Cruise after Edge of Tomorrow, not only delivering an exciting thriller well balanced by suspense, actions and humors at the right moment, but also the fun, shrewd and metaphorical dialogues throughout the entire film. The well structured plot helps a lot in full character developments of all the cast while the chemistry between Cruise and Ferguson is excellent which enables the audiences to feel the interpersonal engagement and teamwork spirit in completing the impossible mission. Joe Kraemer does well in composing the scores by mixing the MI theme into different style of musics while the action sequences are captured in great cinematography angle and in a variety of shootings, hand combats and vehicles chasing. The twisting at climax and the surprising way to end the fate of the impossible villain are presented at a perfect pacing, leading this installment as the bridge connection to potentially expand further and deeper.… Full Review »
