I lived at the movies last weekend. The second movie I saw was the new MI:4. Plot: once again some crazy person has the bright idea of killing everyone in order to purify the earth. The bad guy’s mission is to start another world war resulting in mass destruction. They pin the bombing of the Kremlin on Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) team (Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Jeremy Renner). And of course, chaos ensues.
I don’t know what is was but I didn’t like this one as much as before. Yes, there was action, good-looking T.C., his funny sidekicks, intense fight scenes and the oh-so-real stunts but something was still missing for me.
The latest installment even attempted to make Ethan more human and fallible. And I approve of his new team. But I didn’t leave there blown away as in the past. Maybe it will be or was different for you. Let me know.
