At Last!
At last, We've already watched Mission: Impossible III. Yesterday, after my friday shift Rain & I went to Glorietta 4. Rain had been eyeing on this since last week. We haven't got the chance to watch it the 1st week ng opening nung movie, because of the different work schedule! We're planning to watch two movies (hindi naman kami atat manood noh?!) dapat kaya lang mukhang hindi ko na kakayanin dahil galing pa ako sa work that day! Baka makatulog lang ako hehe =)
We had so much fun watching the movie! I didn't expect na mawawala ang antok ko. There's no dull moment. Breath-taking stunts. It was definitally intense, with that extremely emotional flash-forward in the beginning. It was the best one yet. I would highly recommend it. Everyone was great; and the plot twists were very well concealed. Kakabitin nga lang!
What's a rabbit's foot? hmmmm =p Mission:Impossible IV for sure! hehehe! =)
Super-spy Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) has retired from active duty to train new IMF agents. But he is called back into action to confront the toughest villain he's ever faced - Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman), an international weapons and information provider with no remorse and no conscience. Hunt assembles his team - his old friend Luther Strickell (Ving Rhames), transportation expert Declan (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), background operative Zhen (Maggie Q), and fresh recruit Lindsey (Keri Russell) - to travel the globe pursuing Davian and rescue Hunt's love, Julia (Michelle Monaghan).
Critics Review:
This sequel is, like its star and his two previous Missions, ridiculous. There are helicopter chases through wind farms, tiny bombs injected into eyeballs, briefcases stolen from bad guys during swank European parties, aerial assaults on freeway traffic, double-crossing secret agents, bad guys with hidden lairs, a multiethnic team of superspies, infallible gadgets for any task and a mask of Philip Seymour Hoffman's face made, for whatever reason, in the catacombs of the Vatican. But the movie's unbound ridiculousness, like Cruise's, creates its own logic and momentum: It doesn't matter why our hero is scribbling trigonometry equations in grease pencil on a Shanghai slum window. Soon enough, he's parachuting off a skyscraper and chasing a bioweapon canister through traffic and on and on. It's all so vaguely exciting that you forget, for split second after split second, that nothing adds up. (Wait, what is this weapon everybody's scrambling over? Who is Hoffman's huffing villain, anyway, and why is he such a prick?) Director JJ Abrams pulls a fast one around every turn, with one slick diversion after another, and the entire movie becomes a giant, empty MacGuffin. Now, this being summer and Tom Cruise being the star and these being the times, why would we expect anything more?
