An average movie

Even though I have never been a huge fan of this franchise, since I kept hearing some really positive things about this movie (some critics even called it the best action flick released during the last 10 years), I was really eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I thought it was eventually a decent installment but not much more than that and, as far as I'm concerned, 'Ghost Protocol' remains by far their best movie. I mean, sure, it was still quite entertaining but it just never blew me away. First of all, even though it was just so easy to figure out who was actually John Larke, the rest of the story was actually pretty murky and, sometimes, I was actually having a rather hard time to really follow the plot. Then, I think it was also a mistake to bring back Julia and Ilsa. Indeed, ever since she has been introduced in 'Mission: Impossible III', Julia has always been such a boring character that they keep bringing back every time they need to mess up Ethan Hunt's mojo. Concerning Ilsa, the only reason she was involved was because Rebecca Ferguson was so good in the previous installment but, in fact, her character was not necessary at all and could and probably should have been removed. In fact, I wish they brought back some other IMF agents like Paula Patton or Jeremy Renner or eve some completely new agents instead of the same team again. Still, I have to admit that it was a lot of fun. Indeed, the realistic stunts were just amazing, so much better than the CGI overdose you get in other modern blockbusters. Furthermore, as Tom Cruise is getting older, he is getting closer to who Ethan Hunt was supposed to be from the very beginning and Cruise gave maybe here his best performance so far in this franchise. I also want to mention that Henry Cavill was completely badass in this movie and he also gave one of his best performances. To conclude, even though I was slightly disappointed, it was still a solid action flick and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
