I’ve something of a soft spot for the Mission Impossible features (this is the fifth) – even if that largesse does not extend to include Tom Cruise (far from it). And the latest is one of the better ones.
Formulaic it may be as the action flits from London to Morocco to Vienna to Kuala Lumpur but there’s more than a hint of sardonic, tongue-in-cheek humour. Lots of high energy ‘situations’ – from motorcycle chases in Casablanca to fisticuffs on the gantries of the Vienna Opera House. And British agent Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules) is more than a match for old Tom.
Enjoyable if forgettable.
