Star Performance

 Tom Cruise is excellent in action and emotional scenes. The rest of the stars have done their job perfectly.


The film starts at a slow pace, but picks up the speed after the intro scenes are over. The action choreography is okay; however, the stunt scenes are less, while compared with Tom’s previous films. However, the fighter plane scenes are fantastically shot, and they impress the audience. The visuals are breathtaking, especially the flight shots. The audience will definitely feel that as if they are in a fighter plane. The editing is perfect, and the BGM is decent.
