Why “Mission: Impossible - Fallout” is the best Tom Cruise movie yet, according to HuffPost’s resident Tom Cruise superfan.
In this crazy world, the only constant is Tom Cruise, the Herculean golden retriever of cinema, who will never stop playing fetch.
The actor broke his ankle seven months ago doing a stunt for the film.
At 53, a rather perilous age for an action star, Cruise shows no sign of slowing down. If anything, he's doubled down on the spectacular and daring-looking personal stunts.
Okay, so this "update" about MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE -- ROGUE NATION is a little late, but lateness isn't really an issue here, and there's a reason for that.
Nearly two decades out, Ethan Hunt has become the star's signature role, and at 53, the indefatigable action hero hasn't lost a step as he runs, jumps, rides and drives from eye-popping set piece to the next with both will and skill.
Introducing the latest in the franchise, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, to an East Hampton audience that included Rudy Giuliani, Lorne Michaels, Matt Lauer, Gayle King, Dan Abrams, Christie Brinkley, Alec Baldwin, who plays it straight as CIA boss Allen Hunley.
"I am thrilled to reunite with Chris for the latest installment in the 'Mission' series," Cruise said in a press release
Warts and all, Jack Reacher is a winner and Tom Cruise once again proves why he's still a movie star. Still, the best thing I can say about Jack Reacher is that I kinda hope we get a sequel.
There's nothing wrong with Jack Reacher that couldn't be helped by losing 15 or 20 minutes of exposition and other kinds of explaining.
