I am tired of people trying to sink Tom Cruise!  Despite Scientology, if you are a fan of this franchise like me, then you should see this film before it’s too late.  This is one of those “go big or go home” movies, and won’t work nearly as well as a rental.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is trying to neutralize “The Syndicate,” a terrorist organization consisting of former international rogue operatives and agents presumed dead. The CIA Director, Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin), wants to dismantle the IMF (Impossible Missions Force) because he doesn’t think the Syndicate even exists.   He is convinced that Ethan has fabricated this organization to justify his impulsive exploits.

Solomon Lane (Sean Harris), the evil head of the Syndicate, wants to take Ethan out!  He has plans to take over the world (what else is new for an evil genius), but, in order to do so, he needs a file that is being safely stored in an underwater computer, with about 10 levels of security protecting it.

To stop Lane, Hunt enlists help from his pals in the IMF, primarily William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and the tech-savvy Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg). The beautiful agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) offers to help, but she may be secretly working for Lane or the British, and could double-cross him! (Regardless of her ultimate allegiance, sparks fly between her and Ethan.)

Will Ethan and the IMF be able to bring down “The Syndicate”?  Will the IMF remain, or will Hunley be able to stop their funding? Will Ilsa wind up an ally or betray Ethan?  (It will be a Mission: Impossible to drag this information out of me!)

The movie is fast-paced, has great action scenes, an interesting plot, and is consistently entertaining.  If you are in the mood for a Mission: Impossible movie, this is one of the better ones of the series.

A Fun Summer Movie!

Tom Cruise at his best!

I have loved the movies ever since I saw “The Wizard of Oz” as a young boy. When Beatle-mania hit the USA, Rock-N-Roll was my greatest passion, but I haven’t enjoyed the current music scene nearly as much over the past 15 years, so that void has been filled by film. In college and med school, I would see movies with my friends and we would stay up late into the night chatting about them. I still love seeing movies with friends and then having dinner to discuss them. This blog evolved out of my desire to tell my movie-loving friends about movies I thought they would enjoy. The blog allows me to do this in a fun way and to reach movie fans everywhere.
