Has anyone seen this?

62% on RT. Tom Cruise action movie from months ago.

Theater in town has this and The Last Stand (59%) starring Arnold. Trying to determine which movie to see tomorrow. I'm thinking Jack Reacher.

Just left the movie. I liked it. It was 75% mystery and trying to solve a case and 25% action, and 100% corny jokes. Tom Cruise is so awesome for being 50.

I'll watch this sequel, but not in theaters. I remember the basic beats of the first one and it was a fun movie.

2011 - Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol ---- best MI movie?
2010 - Knight and Day --- I actually thought it was fun
2008 - Valkyrie

Mission Impossible is just action, not Tom Cruise really. They are fine, fun movies, but its just like you and Fast and the Furious. They could paint a refrigerator box red and put vin diesel in it, and you'd still eat it up.

Oblivion, Knight and Day were terrible. Tropic thunder was funny, but not because of Tom Cruise. He just had like a funny few minutes.

Rock of Ages was awesome as hell, but its been a long time since we've had a truly original Cruise movie.

Mission Impossible is literally Tom Cruise. That whole franchise is built on his shoulders.

They used to have really intricate plot lines and good dialogue, but it seems anymore, they just focus the whole movies around a certain stunt or series of stunts and thats it. Like...yeah, you can hold your breath for like 8000 minutes, neat.

Don't get me wrong, I like it, just not what I liked about them originally.

It has a really good plot as far as just being in the forest for survival until Tom Cruise got his hands on the script and made it about space and friggin aliens.
