I liked the movie very much, but I kept telling myself several times during the movie, "this movies is so long." Maybe because I was sleep deprived when I watched it, so perhaps I had a short attention span.

You never know what the outcome is, this applies to both the missions of these films, and the films themselves. These are not textbook action films; even if they do seem like it at times, it's because they're attempting to challenge those conventions and give them a nice twist. There's plenty of predictable moments in this film, but there are moments when you glued to the screen because you have no idea what'll be next.
In comparison to the previous films, I will need to admit that I have not watched the first two. I tried watching the first one years ago, but found myself feeling bored as batshit, and I have never even tried putting the second one on. Mission: Impossible 3 is a completely harmless action film, made better by a startling performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman and an early indication of JJ Abrams' visual talent. Ghost Protocol has some of the most incredibly shot action sequences of all-time, that still make my jaw drop everytime I watch it. When it came to this, only one question was on my mind; Is Cruise still watchable? Why I even asked myself that question I will never know, because this is Tom Cruise at his most action-packed. He still has the charm, wit, determination and persistence to do the right thing in any way possible, unorthodox or not.
Most of the sequences in this film are driven completely by tension rather than out of this world stunts. Yes, Cruise hangs off the side of a plane, yes there is a cool motorcycle chase, but those are a necessity for these films. When you realize what is going on and what is at stake, that is more important than any cool stunt that the crew can pull off. The last 30 minutes of the film has some of the most tense action scenes I've ever sat through in recent memory. Even during the Opera scene, the only thing you can hear is the singing, and the thrill came from the characters decisions, not actions. Honestly, it's more suitable to label this film a Thriller than an Action.
Is it the best film in the Series? No, that title still goes to Ghost Protocol, but it has the claws to scratch it from its place. This has been the most fun I've had with a film in a while, and I'm just glad these films are enjoying their own renaissance, and I just hope it'll last for a while.
“Fantastic Four” is struggling to find its footing at the box office this weekend, suggesting that not even superheroes are immune to poor reviews.
Early estimates show the 20th Century Fox release struggling to hit $30 million for the weekend, which is well below the anticipated mid-$40 million mark. Should the estimates keep plummeting, the opening could prove disastrous for the studio, which spent $120 million on the pic.
In addition to “Fantastic Four’s” not-so-fantastic 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a damning tweet from the film’s own director, Josh Trank, suggested that even he was disappointed with the final cut. Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller star in the reboot.
Last weekend’s champ, “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” is tracking close behind “Fantastic Four” with an estimated $27 million weekend. The fifth installment in Paramount’s Tom Cruise franchise should reach $100 million domestically by Monday.
