    Predictably entertaining
    This is not a bad movie, in the sense that none of the movies in the series are bad. But aren't they all sort of the same? Like - almost EXACTLY the same? Plenty of action, maybe too much. Nice to see Esai Morales and Cary Elwes getting 2020's work, as both are quality actors. But Hollywood, for the love of God, can you stop forcing the "tough chick" character on every action movie??? It's just not realistic to watch these 110 pound ladies taking out men twice their size or more. It wouldn't happen and it makes the film lose a lot of credibility. Trained or not it wouldn't help against men who are also trained and physically a LOT stronger. That's just fact and observation. Having stated that this is all fiction and there are plenty of other ridiculous things in the movie, but for the most part it works (or is at least slightly north of watchable). Could and probably should have been 15-20 minutes shorter.

    Guess I'm Dumb
    Uh, what did you want?

    More stunts? More bloodshed? More stars?

    Not enough action?

    Obviously it's not a 10, but come on.

    To be upset about a movie that began by upsetting everyone with it not 'being Mission: Impossible'- to having so many saying that 'This Is Not Mission: Impossible'! I, unfortunately, have to agree with how spoiled we've become.

    If you didn't, couldn't or just refused to have fun here- and couldn't get over the showing of a little bit of the motorcycle stunt, you are beyond me. Thankfully. I am a stickler for films, but not like these.

    To take a fine comb to something like this is to not just misunderstand what the movie is supposed to be, but to misinterpret what the comb is for.

    I'd ask for you to take a break or lighten up a bit, but I realize you won't, though I hope you can.

    My only gripe? Why didn't Lady Jessica use The Voice?
