Movie night with Iris.
This is rip-roaring fun, and an unashamed gem. The Mission: Impossible films don't have any hang-up's about cannon. It's spectacular action pieces, that seem rooted in realism. I remember nowt about the previous five, and it just doesn't matter. The plot's wafer thin, but it doesn't matter. You get the gist.
Henry Cavill is a great love-hate bromance, then evil foe. Indeed it's one of those films in which heroes and villains are continually blurred. We are never sure who is trying to kill Ethan, who is trying to help him and who is simply there for the money.
So chill and enjoy the set pieces, there are too many to mention. The stand-off in a car park, brutal fight sequence in the gents, a riveting motorbike chase through the streets of Paris, a rooftop chase from St Paul's Cathedral to the Tate Modern, helicopter battle; and a clifftop climax.
Invigorating viewing, just wish we'd had more of the theme tune.
