MIS­SION: IM­POS­SI­BLE 9.10PM, TDT

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

Tom Cruise’s squinty lead per­for­mance in this block­buster re­make of the old ’ 60s TV se­ries re­mains an ac­quired taste for some. How­ever, as pure over­the- top es­capism, Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble re­ally cooks. The hi- tech gar­nish slapped on ev­ery­thing here – from the bravado of the open­ing cred­its to the slick sec­re­ta­gent gad­getry – cov­ers for the more ridicu­lous mo­ments of plot de­vel­op­ment. Watch es­pe­cially for that great scene mid- way through where Cruise pen­e­trates a high se­cu­rity vault armed with noth­ing but a rope and an acute sense of bal­ance.
