Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is back. And looking a lot older – for someone who’s coming close to 55, he looks almost forty. He needs to relax and let himself age – so long as the cartlidge is all holding together, he can still do his awesome Tom Cruise running. Oh, sorry, so sidetracked, back to the film.
So, there are a bunch of bad guys in a kind of alliance, only no-one really believes they exist, but they do. Hunt and his mates William(Jeremy Renner), Benji (Simon Pegg) and Luther (Ving Rhames) need to prove it is real and then beat it. And there are a whole bunch of cool explosions and some gadgets, and the wonderful Simon Pegg gets to do a whole heap more. One big problem (well, two, but why the hell should this film have any decent female characters? They almost got close with one, almost) – it really is a cinema movie. I was a bit too busy having a life (or perhaps not having a life, as the case may be) and missed it, and watching it on a little screen in the loungeroom just don’t cut it.
