Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One review: Tom Cruise fights the AI in an action thriller

Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Review

Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Review: The charismatic, charming superstar is unbeatable when it comes to delivering big-screen action spectacles with some mind-boggling stunts and indescribable swag. Whether it’s MI or Top Gun, the action superstar has single-handedly delivered franchise blockbusters thanks to his death-defying stunts, which take the cinematic experience to all new level. Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One written-directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

With the world talking about how AI is slowly taking up our jobs, McQuarrie just goes a step further and makes AI, known as The Entity in the film, the main antagonist. While M:I 7 remains true to its franchise and serves a high-octane, thrilling action flick which can seem slightly impractical in reality, it also weirdly gives a reality check to the viewers of what could be in store for the world in the near future thanks to artificial intelligence.

In the pre-credits sequence, this Entity fools a super-advanced Russian submarine into destroying itself following a sequence where an unattended computer monitor is shown, and a giant digital eyeball appears on the screen.

Now, Ethan’s mission is to find the two halves of a physical key, which can control or destroy the Entity. He is joined by tech agents Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) along with Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who returns as sharpshooter along with arms dealer the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby).

So, will this IMF team find the two halves of a physical key to save the world? For that you have to watch Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One on the big screen (and mind you on the big screen).

The deadly combo of director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise has turned out to be a blessing for the MI franchise and with this part, the duo has taken it to the next level with some epic stunts along with a gripping narrative.

Should you be watching Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning? Yes, because it serves Tom Cruise-once again- in all his glory, age, illogical stunts, predictability and CGI notwithstanding. Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One is releasing in theatres on 12 July.
