    Good for the 12-16 year old age group, who are probably less put off by (a) the dumbed-down way plot and backstory are spoon fed during the first 15 minutes, and (b) the bottomless bag "divine knowledge" tech devices at the disposal of the IMF team (I turned it off for good when Ving Rhames blurted out that one of key halves being transported at the airport was counterfeit based on some magical remote chemical composition analyzer).

    I'm sure many were wowed by the special effects, which are probably awesome, but I'll never know, since to hold my interest, a film needs to make at least an attempt not to insult me every 5 minutes or less.

    This movie was pants!
    I loved most of the MI series. This one dropped the ball in the fact that an assassin woman with a sword loses against a geezzer with a switch-blade? WTF ??

    Almost a 3 hour movie that never seems to get a focus. It's just a downward spiral th whole time

    Which country still runs steam trains?? How doe the killer now how to operate a steam train?? What are the chances of that?

    This film is the usual end to a series of good sequels only end up to sending out a last hurrah that is a bucket of coal from China, IE far fetched.

    The whole idea of AI is IMHO very scary. I fear that too many entities will jump onboard with it.

    Trust no one is my caption

    600 words is a bit of a push IMHO.
