On Thursday The Orlando Millennial readers were invited to an advanced screening of Tom Cruise's new movie, "MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING PART ONE."
John and I attended the screening --he had seen all of the other Mission: Impossible movies but to be very honest, I had not seen any of the other movies before this one.
We saw the movie in Dolby Cinema, which is always a great experience and something I highly recommend for this film. The movie is pretty long at about 2 hours and 40 minutes, however, there was never a moment where I felt like "is it over yet?" or noticed the time going dragging - each moment was used well.
The movie was full of action packed scenes, gorgeous locations, and some humor. For someone like me that had not seen any of the previous movies, I still could easily follow along and be invested in the movie, without feeling lost or like I was missing anything. I really liked the diversity of the different characters in the movie and that there were a lot of leading women in the movie as well. It was pretty amazing to me that in his 60s, Cruise is still doing all of this stunt too - very impressive. There were some moments I got some Thanos vibes from the "villain" of the movie, but that could have just been me.
As this was a part one, I think it is without spoilers to say that the movie left off with a slight cliffhanger, but one that leaves you excited for more. I am looking forward to the next one and to see where this story leads.
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING PART ONE is only in theaters starting July 12th, 2023 and will be available in Dolby Cinema, Premium large formats, and IMAX. For more information regarding the film, check out my previous post HERE.
