Metal detectors would only prevent infiltrators from using oxygen tanks made of metal. All they'd have to do would be manufacture some that were made of plastic. They'd only need to last a few minutes, so they would not have to contain a lot of overpressure, hence they would not need to be very strong. See more »
Quite predictable, pretty unrealistic and still very enjoyable.
Quite predictable, pretty unrealistic and still very enjoyable. That being said, this movie is everything you can expect it to be. Quick and interesting action and even if you can predict what's gonna happen next (sometimes precisely to a second) you still will enjoy seeing how they made it happen. As for acting: Rebecca Ferguson's lovely, Simon Pegg'g good, Ving Rhames Jeremy Renner and Simon McBurney are adequate for their characters, and Tom Cruise... well he's the way he is, if you love him you'll love him here and if he annoys you... ;) All in all it's an action movie and if that's what you expect than you surely won't be disappointed.
