A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
CIA chief Hunley (Baldwin) convinces a Senate committee to disband the IMF (Impossible Mission Force), of which Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is a key member. Hunley argues that the IMF is too reckless. Now on his own, Hunt goes after a shadowy and deadly rogue organization called the Syndicate.
Series trademark: Almost every movie in the series has a scene with Ethan Hunt descending by wires in some form: during the break-in scenes of the first three movies, he is suspended by wires, and in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011) he ties himself to a fire hose in order to climb down the sky scraper. Although Hunt isn't suspended by wires in this movie, he does use a rope to slide down from the Vienna Opera House. See more »
In the movie Ethan shows Benji photos from a car crash in Istanbul allegedly involving Lane, where the visiting president of Malawi was killed. In reality, the photos are from an accident in Norway involving prominent cross country skier, Petter Northug Jr. See more »
Quite predictable, pretty unrealistic and still very enjoyable.
Quite predictable, pretty unrealistic and still very enjoyable. That being said, this movie is everything you can expect it to be. Quick and interesting action and even if you can predict what's gonna happen next (sometimes precisely to a second) you still will enjoy seeing how they made it happen. As for acting: Rebecca Ferguson's lovely, Simon Pegg'g good, Ving Rhames Jeremy Renner and Simon McBurney are adequate for their characters, and Tom Cruise... well he's the way he is, if you love him you'll love him here and if he annoys you... ;) All in all it's an action movie and if that's what you expect than you surely won't be disappointed.
