International Writers Magazine: M: I.111
Starring Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman
Director J.J. Abrams
the unstoppable addiction that we had to Lost and
Alias what more could director J.J. Abrams do for
us thrill-seeking viewers? Well he has directed the latest adventures
of Ethan Hunt for starters.
At first glance
it appears that Mr Hunt has no intention of supplying us with the show-stopping
stunts that we have grown to love. It seems that he has left the force
for good but when his old recruit Lindsey is discovered to be in trouble
he jumps back in action.
Old favourite, Luther Strickell, (Ving Rhame) returns as the technical
expert at his side, and soon they attempt a rescue. With Declan, (Jonathan
Rhys Meyers; Bend It Like Beckham) and Zhen, (Maggie Q) by their sides
they start to realise who they are really up against. It is a master
mind in the form of Owen Davian, (Philip Seymour Hoffman; Cold Mountain,
It takes a lot to stop an international weapons supplier when your bosses
are against you. John Brassel, (Laurence Fishburne; The Matrix) is not
what he seems and with Musgraves, (Billy Crudup) help they have
some amazing adventures along the way. The special effects have a no-expense-spared
quality and the action comes thick and fast. For those who are not interested
in the action aspect, there is still a love-story sub-plot.
Monaghan (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) plays the beautiful girlfriend Julia.
But whether you go to drawl over Toms good looks or to watch
some amazing action, no one will be disappointed. This is definitely
one film where the squeal is as good, if not better, than the original.
