    Alright PTA. I was slightly wrong. 

    It’s rambling, a little slow and very very hazy. I’ll stand by my original statement that this movie feels like trying to listen Darwin’s on the origin of species while you have a migraine. And then being tested on it. 

    But... this film is about a nice man. Doc’s a great guy with a lot of heart. And kinda smart in his way. And watching him stumble his way through his cases is kinda…

    Is this mission impossible zero? It really sort of is!

    Also the plane scene is better than you remember it. I assure you!

    I'm very conflicted.

    It's terrible.... Not really. It's just a bit meh. But then again it's brilliant there. 

    Howard Hawks once said a good movie had three good scenes and no bad ones. 

    So what's a movie that's got three great scenes, two good ones, a host of mehs, some bad and one deplorably terrible. 

    Especially if all of it looks pretty and sounds fantastic. 

    But then your also dealing with his eyes... Ugh.

    Somehow I think this one will grow on me. Like Rogue Nation did...

    McQ oddly succeeded in feeling like a different director entirely, for this film.

    Rogue Nation is slick and precise, like Cruise. This movie is muscly and robust like Cavill.

    My metaphors will end there.
