Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is on yet another mission to save the world (should he choose to accept it) for the seventh time (movie time, that is) in Mission Impossible: Fallout; the good news is he does, because this latest installment in the franchise is undeniably (go ahead, try to deny it) exciting and suspenseful, with more than enough double-crosses, triple-crosses, and well-choreographed action to make this one of the best films in the series—and one of the two most enjoyable films out at your multiplexes at this moment. (More on the other one in a bit.)
Before telling you how much I enjoyed City Island, I should tell you that I have never been a big Andy Garcia fan. He’s always seemed to be a little uncomfortable, especially in scenes where he emoted, or should I say over-emoted. However I started liking him, believe it or not, in the Ocean’s 11-13 movies—Garcia’s appearances as the powerful casino owner exhibited menace as a well as a welcome sense of humor. Now with his role as a prison guard who dreams of being an actor, Garcia has finally turned me into a full fan.
