Continuity? Impossible!

  • May 27, 2000
  • by
Pros: Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Anthony Hopkins

Cons: Do we know what continuity is??? Let's get original here, people.

Good morning, Agent Hunt. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is as follows:

Director John Woo has decided to display a sequel to Tom Cruise's blockbuster, Mission: Impossible. For two hours, you will be required to sit in a crowded theater and watch good actors perform a poorly written script, stunts that only include explosions with or without car chases, and scenes done in a style that have been ripped off of other well-known films.

Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, and even Anthony Hopkins can't do anything to salvage this film. You must try to overlook all of the obvious continuity flaws (such as make up mistakes, camera mistakes, and even cast mistakes) and attempt to enjoy the movie.

Difficult? Very. But, this is not Mission: Difficult. It's Mission: Impossible.

During these two hours, you will also have to make sense of the Matrix-esque cinematography and decipher who is supposed to be alive, who is sick, who is dead, and who is whom. Don't worry if you feel like you're in the middle of a Scooby Doo episode. That is to be expected.

You may think that your ears are playing tricks on you. Don't worry. They're not. The foley artists seem to have taken a break, so you'll have to make the neck-snapping sound in your mind.

Hopefully, like myself, you'll be able to score free passes to this film. Should you care to put off this mission until you can watch in the comfort of your own home, you won't be mission much.

This Epinion will self-destruct in five seconds.
