- the emotional through line really worked for me. Since these movies are always free floating I liked how they used Monaghan for connective tissue without compromising the Hunt character in the long term. Not easy to do.

I agree. A lot of this movie is about guilt and atonement -- characters are constantly saying "if it hadn't been for me..." or "I got us into this mess". That scene near the end felt like a very real and poignant resolution to this running theme

Based on all the insane praise everyone everywhere is heaping on this, I’m guessing I will think it is just okay at best. Sigh.

At best you’ll outright hate it.

i think you'll dig it LV. There's an elemental quality to it that i bet you'll appreciate, and McQuarrie does his best directing work to date.

Saw this tonight, and yeah it's probably a franchise best. They outdid themselves on this one; super tense at times! Humour was perfectly judged, and I don't even know how to describe Mr. Cruise at this point. At 56, he's a damn force of nature. He's just relentless. What a hero!

Yeah I definitely need to see this one, the last few MI's were really enjoyable. I honestly prefer these over the Bond and Bourne films these days by far. Aalso excited to hear that Doug Liman is redoing the Edge of Tomorrow sequel and that Cruise and Blunt are supposedly on board...

it's great that he's starting to lean in to his age a bit. some of the best scenes -- dramatic, comedic, and action scenes -- were orchestrated around Ethan's getting older.

Math determines that the more Tom Cruise runs, the better his movies are

Yeah, this. For example, his expressions during the bathroom fight were on point. Same with the fight at the end.

I don't many 56 yr olds who run as relentlessly as he does in this movie.

i like that too, and the stunt work is just astonishing. But at the top of that, i love his acting. Loved everything that happens with his ex wife, with his pals, with Isla...how he communicates a felling with just a look. The guy is brilliant.
