Who would have thought that one of the most reliably entertaining film franchises would end up being Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible series? Well, at least from III on. For the first time, we have a writer/director returning for a second film (Christopher McQuarrie, who also worked with Cruise on five other films) as Tom and the team deal with a former villain (Sean Harris) and the cult that grew up around him trying to start a nuclear apocalypse as well as a brooding, arm cocking, CIA agent (Henry Cavill). But how does it stack up in the franchise? Does it live up to the hype you might be hearing? Listen to Chris, Michael, Aaron, Frank, and George complete their reviewing mission.
