Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that Tom Cruise is Box Office gold. Here we have the fifth movie in the franchise that started with a gamble on a live-action film version of a '60s TV show which, by all accounts have been continuing with each iteration to outdo the last. Where the 'Bond' movies seem to get worse and laughable as they continue, the 'M:I' movies seem to hit the mark each and every time as individual hits. This franchise is different in the fact that each movie can stand on its own with little backstory needed to get viewers up to date. Cruise, even in his early 50's, is as good if not better than most action stars half his age. As part of the writing team and the Director of this, his third movie, Christopher McQuarrie knows how to get the audience glued to the screen. With thrills, comedy and edge-of-your-seat action to boot McQuarrie completes the holy grail. This franchise has gone from strength to strength and is all the better for it. Each director has put their own original spin on the franchise. I remember when 'Ghost Protocol' came out, it hit all the right notes and became my favourite movie of the year. MI:5 has accomplished the same thing this year too. Everyone in this film is perfectly cast and kudos to the casting director for casting the actors in believable roles. Special shoutout to Sean Harris who is a perfect villain reminiscent of classic 'Bond'. Each scene is constructed to perfection and even in scenes where Hunt is close to death, I found myself in the theatre, tense and stressed over whether he would make it through or not. This movie is style defined entertainment at its best and Cruise never misses a beat. If this movie does anything, it solidifies the franchise as one of the greatest of them all deserving all the praise it gets. I for one will be front and centre for the premiere of MI:6.
