When the first trailer for this was released, we had a bit of a discussion about it on Fxhome, and I was one of the folks who said, "Psh, whatever this looks like crap." Maybe I was the only one... I loved the first M:I movie, and the second one was just terrible, so I never bothered with the third one. I still haven't seen that one, and frankly, kinda forgot about it until today. Gonna watch it soon, I promise.
Anyway, I was extremely surprised to see that right now this has a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes
(With only 19 reviews in, but still, that's pretty good.) I completely expected this to end up being a standard action movie with nothing particularly interesting about it, despite Brad Bird directing, but I think I'm going to have to change my viewpoint on it now.
I figured there's probably bound to be some discussion about this, since it releases this Friday, so I may as well jump the gun on starting a thread. Think of it as my way of apologizing for almost certainly being wrong about this movie.
