“Mission: Impossible 6” Begins Filming




With McQuarrie again on writer & director duty, this should hopefully be as enjoyable as Rogue Nation

Ignoring 2, which does have some good points, MI has out Bond'ed Craig's Bond. And that comes from a huge fan of what Craig has done.

Agreed that 2 is the worst perhaps partly due to the poor villain that is Dougray Scott (Thank God he never became Wolverine, he is just a bad actor who always comes across as smug in his roles.)

The first one is still the best for me; now that Mr Cruise is getting older its time to consider ending his run on a high and stop at Mission 6 then reboot the series back to the team based dynamic of the Mission Impossible series and not the Ethan Hunt show. My primary reason for this is I cannot think of any actor who could replace Cruise if the series was to continue as is.

Looks fantastic with mostly practical effects on view. So much more exciting looking than recent Bond fare...

MI:6 does look very good but ... IMHO, you seem to have totally misunderstood what Craig's Bond films are all about.

None of which you get from MI films; no one has any idea who any of IMF people are, why they do what they, what drives, them, etc. It is one set piece after another. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, it just means it is not really comparable to the Mendes/Craig Bonds. Though one of the scenes in MI:6 looks like a thinly veiled copy of one the scenes from SPECTRE.

The Bond films are as thinly veiled as cinema gets, and completely lacking anything exciting or cinematic. The character is a parody and feels old fashioned to me. Overcooked and overdone.

I do not understand why they are so successful.

The M.I films have delivered the goods recently for this sort of genre.

The new M.I trailer is guilty though of blasting its money shots.

I find myself somewhat in the middle. It's clear that Craig's Bond was a reinvention and a far more successful one than, at least in retrospect, Goldeneye looked at the time. I've not misunderstood that, I just don't think that it works anywhere near as well as it could have. Of course, had it done so we'd be bemoaning angsty arthouse Bond as not being very Bond, so a balance has to be created.

So, we got an attempt at making it more serious, more backstory, but it was still Bond. Casino Royale remains as one of my top 5 films to watch, ever.

Here's the thing though, my view is that CR and QOS have more development of Bond as a character, weaknesses, cracks etc than Skyfall and Spectre. And it's perhaps ironic that Mendes, better known for being able to draw that stuff out, isn't quite as successful at doing that as he could have been.

There is an obvious riff on Spectre in MI6 though. Deliberate? Let's see how that plays on a human level. I doubt it will be much other than action. But if there is a human element here it will be interesting to see that comparison.

Love the Mission Impossible films bar the first one.

Surely you mean 'bar the second one'?? The first was ok, but No 2 was a stinker, bar the last 10 minutes. However, loved 3, 4 and 5 also.

Only slight sour note I have with this is the complete love-fest for Tom Cruise whenever the press gets rolling - case in point being the Graham Norton show where they all turned up. Excruciating.

There's a great behind-the-scenes video on Youtube looking at the helicopter flying that Cruise does solo in the movie. Damn impressive (and scary) flying for someone just fresh to chopper-piloting!

(I'd post a link but currently at work & don't have access to YT.)

Can't view from work but if its the one that shows them setting up the cameras on Cruise's chopper (ooo err!) to prove he is the only one onboard, then yes!
