Remember the episode of the Simpsons where Homer makes his own Hell's Angles gang, then the real gang shows up and Homer has to fight the leader with Motorcycles (literally lifting them up using them like swords)?
that sums up the most of Mission Impossible II, especially the end fight scene.
Misson Impossible: Ghost Protocol is the only one I've taken the time to see. I did enjoy it. Won't top Bond flicks for me. Don't have much desire to watch the other MI movies. Besides, I'm an advocate the "bad" Bond movies. So I lean pretty hard to the British secret agent here.
What a crazy situation. I had never heard of this before.
As I was watching it, I thought it was a ridiculous work of fiction. I knew it couldn't be real because the actors seemed so over the top, it seemed like a story that could not be true, the music and production of it all and then... BAM! It's real. They aren't actors. The twist of the knife where The Imposter comes to believe the reason he got away with it was because the family killed the boy is startling. As a work of fiction, it's too much, but as fact it's incredibly interesting.
He even tried to do it again afterward.
What does anybody else think about this movie? Was it real or not?
Yeah it's brilliant. There was already a movie (as in a proper thriller) made about it a couple years ago, haven't seen it but apparently it wasn't very good. The Imposter was the real story told by the real people. Yeah, it played out like a thriller, but that was the directors choice to reveal the information to us in that manner. I think the whole point was for the viewer to question it after watching it, the way it's told makes us believe something and then completely be swayed the other way by this 'Imposter', which in turns makes you wonder if you've just been dragged along for the ride and conned just like the family were. It's amazing. One of the best of the year.
