We’re a few days later in sharing this but, as always, it’s better to be late than never!
Say what you will about Tom Cruise. He’s definitely an actor who I have mixed feelings about. On the one hand, he’s got undeniable talent and, whenever I watch him in a good movie (like Edge of Tomorrow), I’m surprised to be reminded of just how compelling he can be onscreen. (Hell, I’d even defend his performance in The Mummy.) On the other hand, I have some friends who flat-out refuse to watch anything that feature Cruise, specifically because they find the whole Scientology thing to just be too creepy.
But, with all that in mind, the Mission: Impossible films have consistently been exciting and entertaining. While Daniel Craig’s James Bond spends all of his time drowning in self-pity, Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt reminds us of why we love spy films in the first place.
Here’s the trailer for Mission Impossible — Fallout! This film will be in theaters on July 17th.
