MONDAY MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE
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.
