Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Premiere Rome: The immense anticipation surrounding the franchise’s seventh installment, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, is a clear testament to its enduring popularity. Following several delays due to the pandemic, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, helmed by Christopher McQuarrie, finally had its global premiere in Rome on Monday evening (June 19), setting the stage for its theatrical release on July 12.

The seventh film in the Mission: Impossible franchise sees Cruise join forces with Hayley Atwell – who plays a mysterious and “destructive” new character named Grace – to track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens humanity.
It was the first major Hollywood film to resume production during the pandemic in 2020.

Variety reports that the gala screening at the Auditorium della Conciliazione was delayed by more than 90 minutes as Cruise was apparently holding an impromptu meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

Eventually, Cruise arrived onstage joined by director Christopher McQuarrie and his costars including Hayley Atwell; Rebecca Ferguson; Simon Pegg; Vanessa Kirby; Pom Klementieff, Esai Morales, Shea Whigham and Greg Tarzan Davis.

According to Variety, the extensive wait for the film has proven to be worthwhile, as it dazzled audiences and critics with its remarkable stunts and thrilling stakes. Here are some early reactions to the movie.

‘Dead Reckoning Part One is another winner for the franchise. Yet again, the production value is THROUGH THE ROOF with some of the most well-defined and exhilarating set pieces photographed in ways that truly make you feel like you’re in the middle of the action. The emphasis on capturing things on camera makes a HUGE difference, and you can feel it. Also really dug the mission this time around and how the technology they’re after factors into the characters’ individual arcs,’ Collider’s Perri Nemiroff wrote.

‘Tom Cruise is A+ as always and Rebecca Ferguson continues to be a favourite, but franchise newcomer Hayley Atwell wound up being the MAJOR standout for me. She can do it all. Action, comedy, a capable hero in many respects while trying to get her sea legs in others. One of the most captivating performances/arcs, and just a hugely enjoyable character to watch. She’s got a scene with Tom that involves a Fiat 500 that truly had me in tears I was laughing so much. One more set piece shoutout — there’s a particular scene within the sequence on the train that had my jaw on the floor. 2 hours and 43 minutes that I will happily watch over and over,’ the critic added.

Calling Dead Reckoning Part One ‘phenomenal’, Screenrant’s Joe Deckelmeier said: ‘Hayley Atwell steals every scene she’s in.’

Collider’s Perri Nemiroff tweeted: “Dead Reckoning Part One is another winner for the franchise.

Fandango’s Erik Davis called Dead Reckoning “an impeccably made action film that does not stop entertaining”. “The story is big & sprawling, but I like how it both felt complete & left you dying for what comes next,” he added.

TheWrap’s Scott Mendelson had the most negative take, saying the film was “a big letdown. Wonky dialogue, oddly broad acting, and narrative contrivances/shortcuts that (being generous) seemed like COVID-related issues. Felt ‘off’ in a way akin to Saw 3-D after Saw VI. For the sake of the industry, I hope I’m in the minority.”

Film is releasing on July 12, 2023. Critics response is good for the movie, let’s see what will be the audience reaction for the movie, when it will finally release in theaters.
