Wooo….hoo… Mission Impossible made possible by Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise). I totally agree that movies like these are meant for girls to look at handsome guys while the guys drool over the sexy co-stars. Don’t agree? It’s a fact.
Many say they are looking at the effects, storyline and all… but then again…. how different can a Mission Impossible is when since day one… everything mission and stuff they do is like a photostat machine. Yeah yeah.. they got this top secret mission… no one else better to do it but Mr. Ethan… he takes up the job, being set up… caught in some drama…. finally found out the truth, manage to make mission possible and well.. tada… the end credits.
Anyone who have seen the series before know how things works. I mean… actually if talk about the storyline.. do you think it make sense? Like… the IMF force will die without Ethan. Yeah.. true, he might be the best, but what if one day he died… or grow old. Come on… Ethan can’t be there for them all the time.
So yeah, this episode shows that all. Ethan decided to lead a peaceful life with his fiancee, Julia (Michelle Monaghan). Yeah… beautiful and funny girl until some agent decided to pop him a present on his engagement night. Sending him a mission to save his protege, Lindsey (Keri Russell). Well.. a team was assembled for this mission to save her.
Well… of course the mission on the first part was a failure or else the movie would have finish in like 30 mins time. Which also leads to Lindsey’s death. This time around, they are to find the culprit behind everything that has been done… well… which points to Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman).
Okay… Mr. Davian is suppose to be super villian in the movie. But well… I din manage to see any of the characteristics or anything done in the movie to prove he is so. He can’t fight for shit.. and well.. I guess he is best at pressing the bomb activation button which actives the bomb that is being placed in the head. I just felt there was a lack of effort to bring the character to a deeper and higher level.
Not to even mention the person who cast for the role Zhen (Maggie Q). She takes up a role as a team member being recruited to help Ethan. I just think this was the most pathethic character in the movie. No offence… I don’t really dislike Maggie Q. It’s just I think she is better of being a model rather than acting. In my humble opinion… she looked best in the scene where someone open her posh car door and she walked down gracefully showing off her sexy legs. Superb…. *clap clap*. I think her acting was rather wooden and not to mention her cantonese sux to the max. As a chinese myself… I don’t even understand what she is trying to say. In the movie.. she is suppose to say “Dui mm jue, ngor hou lun jhun (I’m sorry, I’m so clumsy)”. Instead, I “think” I heard her say “Dui mm jue, ngor hou LAN jhun” which practically have some foul language in it. *sigh* I would rather cast Josie Ho for this character. But then again… to the americans they would go like “Who? Josie who?” hahahaha…. *rofl*
I didn’t know what others would think.. but the ending was rather crappy and well it’s like we were all in a rush of time. Worst is… there were many scenes… it was supposedly to be in Shanghai.. but well.. it just wasn’t Shanghai at all. I mean… you just don’t con people when they see this Pearl Tower and then just pan to other small states in China and say it is Shanghai assuming no people went to Shanghai before.
But well… what more can I say, at least this installment of the movie was a better than the previous one. What more can we ask from Mr. Cruise now that he is busy with his baby and drama about marrying Katie Holmes or not.
