I did see the first Cruise MI movie, but I have no intention of watching this one. So he does all the stunts himself? Interesting. So did Gene Kelley, to go from the ridiculous to the sublime. I am reminded of the old and excellent film Mr. Roberts, in which there is a scene where somebody jumps a motorcycle from the mooring onto the ship after a wild night of liberty. Incredibly, they could not find any stunt man who would attempt something so dangerous, so they just brought in someone off the street.

I saw MI-Fallout a couple of days ago. I've only seen one other MI film (the first one) and I'm not a fan of "action" movies in general, but this film is undeniably spectacular. It's two and a half hours long but holds your attention for every minute.

Thanks. Haven't seen any of the others. But the clips in the NYT story I provided above blew me away. Now your rec. seals the deal. I gotta see it!
