Earth has been destroyed and is left lifeless except for the few alien scavs that the humans have defeated. Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a drone repairman that is stationed on earth to repair drones that secures the harvesters from the scavs.  He and his female partner, Victoria, have few weeks left on their mission until they get sent back to Titan, a moon that orbits Saturn where the rest of earth’s survivors have seek refuge.  Harper soon finds out that the scavs are not who they really are and his mission is more than a drone repairman.

The plot in this movie unfolds at a snail’s pace, but it ramps up at the end. This sci fi movie has a great premise but the it fails to get you to the edge of your seat for very long.

Rating: ★★★★★★★½☆☆

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Ethan Hunt and the entire IMF organization has been disavowed by their own government after a bomb blows up the Kremlin.  Now Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, and his rogue team must find the culprit that has framed them for the bombing and to prevent an all out nuclear war with Russia.  Ghost Protocol is action packed and the daring stunts will leave you at the edge of your seats.

It’s also nice to know that with a couple of Apple products and some BMW vehicles you can pretty much save the world.  If you enjoyed the last Mission Impossible movies then you will definitely be pleased with this one.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Knight and Day

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz join up again, this time in a Romantic-Action movie. Cruise plays charming, funny, and well trained Jason Borne-style spy/assassin/Federal Agent who is being chased down by the government agency he works for and an international Black Arms dealer. Diaz is the unsuspecting girls that  gets caught up in the mix and is forced to tag along with Cruise in order to stay alive.

Cruise and Diaz are fun to watch and their chemistry plays out well on screen. Though a little over the top in some scenes this is a fun summer action flick you would expect from a Tom Cruise movie, but I must say that Knight and Day is not as polished as his previous films.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
