MON­DAY MIS­SION: IM­POS­SI­BLE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, NINE Tom Cruise’s squinty lead per­for­mance in this block­buster re­make of the ’60s TV se­ries is an ac­quired taste. But as over-the-top es­capism, it re­ally cooks. The hi-tech gar­nish is slapped on every­thing, from the blus­ter and bravado of the open­ing cred­its to the slick sec­re­ta­gent gad­getry. Watch for the great scene in which Cruise pen­e­trates a high-se­cu­rity vault with noth­ing but a rope and an acute sense of bal­ance.
