I was all set to be entertained by brainless action.
JJ Abram's touches to character development and poignant moments are scattered all over the film. The element of humour also gave the action film the push it needed to soar towards greatness.
Tom Cruise looks surrealistically young for his age. The African American agent is kick-ass! And the bomb squad film guy is set to be the next Bond.
I love this high.
On a separate note, my own MI arrived when the polis across asked me for a bribe for a ridiculous traffic incident. Where's Ethan Hunt when you needed him???
