Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One: The Reviews
Ethan Hunt is returning our screens in the seventh instalment of the edge of your seat franchise. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie and starring of course Tom Cruise as Hunt, and co-starring Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Esai Morales, Vanessa Kirby, Pom Klementieff, and Henry Czerny, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One has Hunt and the IMF team tracking down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity if it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than the mission -- not even the lives of those he cares about most.
It is one of the most anticipated films of the year and here is a look at the early reviews:
“The big chase in the little Fiat puts you so shudderingly close to the action, you feel like you’re being constantly smashed up. Have you ever had whiplash from watching a film before? Brace yourself.” Alex Godfrey, Empire Magazine
“This new entry ramps up the excitement and sheer flat-out impressiveness to a new level.” Todd McCarthy, Deadline Hollywood
“This outing may be one-half of a two-part finale, but it gives audiences enough closure to stand on its own, and every reason to expect the last instalment will be a corker.” Peter Debruge, Variety magazine
“Tom Cruise scales the heights of movie heroism…Christopher McQuarrie crafts a delirious thrill-ride of intricate action, villainous AI and thoughtful reinvention.” Danny Leigh, The Financial Times
“Tom Cruise does it better...Seven films in and nothing about M:I, from the star’s incredible stunt skills to the silly-serious tone, is showing any sign of slowing down.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“As muscular, extravagant and old school as its star.” Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
“…the most important thing is this: “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” is just incredibly fun. It feels half its length and contains enough memorable action sequences for some entire franchises.” Brian Tallerico, Roger Ebert
“In the climax, Ethan pursues a train, attempting to climb aboard while it's in motion. This necessitates that he ride a motorcycle off an extremely high cliff to free fall until he pulls his parachute. To say it's anything short of miraculous would be a lie. It's quite literally jaw-dropping. It's hard to know whether to gape or to grab one's face in abject terror as we watch the moment unfold. Only Cruise would try something so perilous for the sake of our entertainment — and it's hard not to be impressed by the foolhardiness and bravery of such a move.” Maureen Lee Lenker, Entertainment Weekly
“Part One of what promises to be an epic M:I story has thrills, chills, life-threatening stunts, a deep hatred of A.I. and whole lotta Tom.” David Fear, Rolling Stone Magazine
“Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One’ review: Summer’s best movie” Johnny Oleksinski, The New York post
“Bottom line, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One is sleek, heart-pounding and incredibly grand in scale. Even after six previous films, its gripping storyline and on-screen performances remain as strong as ever, with fortunately more to come.” Jeff Conway, Forbes
“Tom Cruise and the series itself are in rude health as this indecently exciting instalment shows.” Donald Clarke, The Irish Times
So pretty universal praise for Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One! We cannot wait to see the film on our big screens at Showcase from July 10.
