Quick Verdict: Mission: Again
This Mission: Impossible is one that I have now only seen twice, and before the second viewing last week, I had quite low opinions on it. I have to say I was positively entertained. Lots better than I remember.
Ethan Hunt is back, and this time they are in trouble for all their risky work from the past. The IMF is disbanded and Ethan is on the run.
So I remember enjoying it the first time round, but it just wasn’t very memorable. I think the reason for this is the format of the film is so similar to Ghost Protocol that it didn’t stand out. Obviously what happens is different, but the structure is the same.
On second viewing though, I have to say it’s much better than I remember. The action is great, the storyline is really good. It is very similar to Spectre’s storyline but actually better. That’s a whole discussion for another time though. A good solid film that is probably better than you remember.
So how does it rank in my Mission: Impossible leader board?
