The high concept “based on a true story” comedy Tag starts off refreshingly like a more genteel and heartfelt reworking of The Hangover, but gradually the film’s manic energy, goodwill, and creativity starts getting chipped away thanks to an emerging mean streak that threatens to derail everything likable.
Ethan Hunt, AKA Tom Cruise in super-stunt mode, is back once again in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, the fifth film in the franchise that now spans 19 years, but this time Hunt has a fresh face helping him kick ass, and she’s ultimately one of the main reasons the film works so incredibly well.

If your jaw doesn’t drop while you’re watching Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, then you’re not really paying attention. Between star Tom Cruise’s unbelievable stunts, including hanging from the tallest building in the world–a dangerous, challenging stunt that most actors would never dream of attempting–and his charm, I would go so far as to say that Cruise rarely gets the praise he deserves for going beyond what should be expected of him.
