Last night I was excited to attend the premiere of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (the fifth MI installment) at the Scotiabank Cineplex Theatre in Toronto.
Even better: Tom Cruise and director Chris McQuarrie were there, and did Q & A after the movie! (Yes, I know there are Cruise naysayers out there, but Scientology isn’t contagious and doesn’t seem to affect his ability to make great movies. I thought it was pretty cool to be in the same – very large – room with him.)
As for the film itself, I’m not an action fan, per se, but it was a great movie, with enough humour to make it more than just a car chase/motorcycle chase/underwater-danger picture, and the international locales added interest for me, too.
Thanks to my wonderful
stalker long lens camera, I got a few good shots of Tom, Chris and ET Canada’s Rick Campanelli, who did a great job moderating the Q & A.
If you’re an action fan – or a fan of any of the cast members (shown below; I particularly like Jeremy Renner) – you should definitely see the movie. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is in theatres Friday, July 31st.
