Mission: Impossible III (2006)
See how Tom runs
Messy, loud, ridiculous and all the other things that the devoted fans
of the genre expect. At least that's what I imagine. Personally, I find
it an indigested soufflé full of heavy duty ingredients that don't seem
to melt all that way together. Fortysomething super star Tom Crusie -
one of my favorites from the 80's and 90's - runs like the wind from
Shanghai to the Vatican (the one in Caserta not the one in Rome)I
didn't know what the rabbit foot was and, quite simply, I didn't care.
In fact I didn't care about any of it. It took a me little while to
realize that the wife in jeopardy wasn't Katie Holmes and I was kind of
embarrassed for Philip Seymour Hoffman and Billy Crudup. To think that
with all the power at Cruise/Wagner's feet, they could be making the
most extraordinary movies. Commercial movies too, but how disappointing
to find out that their ambitions are so basic and pedestrian. MI3 as an
action flick I guess it's okay but, just okay, shouldn't be acceptable
and for what I gather, it wasn't. Come on Tom, you can afford to take
risks, can't you? So what are you waiting for? I know you could still
dazzled us. "Born On The 4th Of July" "Color Of Money" and "Rain Man"
were not that long ago.
