After emerging from the U-Bahn station, Benji crosses the Kärntner Ring to get to the Opera House. Not only is that impractical - the correct exit emerges on the same side as the Opera House - it would be impossible to cross the street on foot at that point without provoking a vigorous response from motorists and very likely an arrest.

Ahh, what a recovery.
26 July 2020 | by ansharora-12638See all my reviews

Ethan Hunt is a character that is at times confusing, chaotic and charming but is a good friend all the time. He doesn't know his boundaries sure, but that's why he is a part of "Impossible Mission Force". After the debacle of MI 2 and a so so MI3, MI4 and MI5 really surprised me. The action in the movie was smooth and not over the top. The score was appropriate and not overly loud at places and the chase sequences were exceptional.

I am not a fan of action genre, I prefer the minimal action in movies and I am also not a great fan of movie series but somwhere along the line something comes that makes you forget about your notions that you had for a specific thing. I prefer Daniel Craig's James Bond because it is not JUST action. Mission Impossible is more action but it is justified. And also, american movies have to have the spice of a good action if the movie is sold under"Action" genre.

Enough said, Tom Cruise is a great actor and though these movies are not Oscar-worthy, he still deserves an oscar once in his lifetime. Simon pegg, love him. Rebecca Ferguson is talented and beautiful. Jeremy Renner- no comment. I am forgetting the name but Marcellus Wallace is apt.

A good watch. Cheers.
