I'm not a Cruise fan, but I found him tolerable in this.  And he's in nearly every minute of the film's two and one-half hours.  This is so over the top with our hero in constant peril, constant chases, multiple shootouts, double crossings, disguises, literal cliff hanging, the fate of one-third of the world at stake.  But the actors do a nice job of hamming it up delivering arch dialogue.  Alec Baldwin is good in this regard.  Angela Bassett is wasted.  It's fun to watch the way the director and cinematographer try to frame shots to make Cruise (allegedly 5'7") appear nearly as tall as Henry Cavill (6'1").


Then that happened.

I can't tolerate Cruise, but I enjoy James Corden, and this was funny...

Forgot to mention you also get a bit in which Wolf Blitzer plays himself.  Don't quit your day job, Wolf.

If we're going to wish for retirements, my candidate would be Matthews.

If the director could have framed shots to make Henry Cavill look like he had a moustache, it would have saved the DCU a lot of grief.

But Matthews is the one guy who destroyed you know who in a face to face interview; terrified him. But yeah that comes along once every decade.
