Well…the team is at it again! This time they are trying to save themselves! After getting shut down, the team goes on a mission (pun) to clear their name and take the Syndicate DOWN!

I have been excited since watching the trailer. I know, I shouldn’t do that, but I did. I am glad! There was so much action in this one. Within the first five minutes you are digging your nails into arm of your seat. Well, I was. This one meshed, smoothly. It wasn’t all over the place (if you felt like that with the last film). The action was great.
My favorite scene through the whole film, obviously the motorcycle chase. SO AWESOME. Being a novice rider, OMG! I walked out of there wanting to get on my bike more (and get a new one!)! I sat in my seat and literally was saying out loud, “Lean!” and “Knee Scraping…Activate!” I like the lean concept, I just don’t see myself doing it. It was AWESOME!
I also like how they incorporated more comedy in this one. I think that is what made it better, for me. In this day, we come to the movie theaters to watch action or comedy. It’s nice to see a little of both. I am the awkward kind, I don’t really see Tom Cruise as comedic or funny, but then when was he in a comedy? Stacy Jaxx, anyone? lol.
The cars, BMW of course, so sweet! Sweet as in, whoa, yes I’ll take one please!
Sean Harris, was great villain in this movie. He can keep a straight face, after pulling the trigger. It takes a calm person to do that (I know it takes several takes to get the right facial expression), especially at the range.
Rebecca Ferguson, I don’t know why I had to think so hard to remember what other films I have seen her in…however, it came to me the other day. The White Queen. She looks great as a brunette and a swift ass kicker in this film!
Well choreographed fight scenes. Like Ethan and Ilsa knew each other.

This one is out July 31st. I’ll see it again! #whatareyouwatching
