Hey guys, just finished marathoning all 5 MI movies in one sitting and for the most part they were pretty good. I mean people may think I'm a pleb but I don't care I had a fun time I get it's not high art but still entertaining, wondering how everyone ranks them.
Rouge nation = Ghost Protocol (Ghost may be a bit better but damnnn Rebecca Ferguson is hot as hell in Rouge) > 1 > 3 >> 2
Anyone else agree or dispute? I really hated 2 and 3 had 2 of my waifu's but a lot of dumb moments. Particularly 4 and 5 are just normal silly stories to hang great action sequences on, what is your guys takes?
1 = Boring
2 = Tried to over compensate 1's boring by having John Woo go Full Woo
3 = Awkward in many ways, who things a fist fight between Tom Cruise and PSH would be a proper movie Boss fight.
4 = Pretty good, act 4 feels tagged on.
5 = They finally got it right, too bad Tom Cruise is way old now
>talking shit about paula patton
Literally kill yourself
1 = Old Guy disappeared for most of the movie
2 = Could be Wolverine guy is supposed to be Hunt's equal in every way but not really
3 = The only way Phillip Seymore Hoffman can win the fight is when Tom Cruise tire himself out punching his tired head, then he got taken out by Chinese driver, by accident
4 = Holy shit the old guy is actually kicking Tom Cruises' ass! Then he jumped off a building for no reason
5 = Creepy whispering man is creepy.
I like your list. Although 2 is pretty fun for the cheesiness alone, it really isnt a mission impossible movie. 3 was an adrenaline rush from start to finish while 1 was more clever with its plot and style.
4 and 5 just feels like a mash up of every idea the previous movies had and adds more, which makes them great in my eyes.
Last 30 minutes of 3 is pretty terrible, didn't even show how he stole the mcguffin, then the whole team got shipped back, then Tom Cruise running for 10 minutes, then main villain got ran over by a van by accident, then mary sue shot every remaining bad guy dead.
it was good up to that point
1, 4, and 5 seem somewhat interchangeable in rankings, it really comes down to whether you prefer more spy elements or more action elements. 2 was outright terrible, as was most of 3, but at least 2 had Woo going full Woo at parts.
Still, can't go wrong with any of them. Or frankly any Cruise movie
It was ridiculous when she took out 2 or 3 special forces guy after holding a gun for the first time in her life for 90 seconds and resurrects Cruise, I wouldn't say Mary Sue but definatly unbelivable
>For the "knife-in-the-eye" scene, Tom Cruise insisted that a real knife be used, and that it stop exactly one quarter-inch from his eyeball, instead of somewhere vaguely near his eye, as John Woo suggested. The knife itself was connected to a cable that was measured carefully in order to achieve the effect and Cruise insisted that Dougray Scott use all his strength in the ensuing struggle.
Whilst I disagree I can understand why people would think this / agree with this ranking (also fucking checked son)
you are 100% right 3 had GOAT villain for me but i don't like the starting at the end thing. Also watching the end of 3 I assumed that Mary Sue was an undercover agent because she fucked up those spec ops guys, but nope just really lucky, so dumb...
