Cruise: Wacky? Yes. Legitimate action hero? Also, yes.
Mission Impossible III :
I just got back from the movies. Guess what I saw? I know Tom Cruise is a bit of a lunatic and has a tendency to make a spectacle of himself when not on the movie screen, but I have to tell you, this movie is incredibly enjoyable. For the third movie in the series I was sufficiently impressed. The action sequences were excellently choreographed and there was just enough story to keep the whole premise plausible. Since J.J. Abrams wrote it (also the writer of Lost and Alias) there were sufficient turns and some mystery. Definitely a fine way to spend a 95 degree afternoon.
