Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 hits cinemas next month, and now we have the first reactions to the highly anticipated news Impossible mission movie.
The film is the first in a two-part story that sees Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team head out on their most dangerous mission yet. A terrifying new weapon threatens all of humanity, and Ethan must seize it before it falls into the wrong hands.
Mission: Impossible 7 held its world premiere tonight (June 19) in Rome, where part of the film was shot, and the lucky few who have already seen the film have taken to social media to share their first reactions.
So, is this another successful mission for Ethan Hunt?
Collider Perri Nemiroff said: “Dead Reckoning Part One is another winner for the franchise. be in the middle of the act.”
While Screening Joseph Deckelmeier added: “The action got my heart rate up. That train scene is breathtaking!”
As x fast And Through the Spider-Verse before her, the news Impossible mission the movie is in two parts, so you can (probably) expect a major cliffhanger, and you should settle for a long watch as well.
It was confirmed last month that Dead Reckoning part one is the longest film in the series to date, clocking in at 156 minutes before the credits and 163 minutes overall.
Will it include a credit scene? We will have to wait and see.
We thought this two-parter would end Tom Cruise’s time as Ethan Hunt. However, writer-director Christopher McQuarrie suggested that this may not be the end.
“There’s always a plan, the plan always changes, everything goes completely wrong and I hope everything will always turn out well in the end,” he explained. “But you never really fully understand, or trust where you’re going, until you get there.”
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 hits UK cinemas on July 11 and US cinemas on July 12.
