While I've never been a Tom Cruise fan I can admit he never backs down from challenge. Wow some of the things he did in this movie were insane. Simon Pegg is enjoyable and Jeremy Renner is fine but both prove more useless in this film than the previous. The real star is Rebecca Ferguson who's elegant mysteriousness is entrancing. Overall, you might not have a more fun time at the movies this summer than with this latest MI installment that actually has me excited for the prospect of a sixth. Rating: 88

Amy Adams delivers an all-time great performance and the music and humor is perfect. Rating: 95

Perhaps the real emotional impact of the film becomes more evident when one ponders it for a while after watching it. The two main characters are so likable that when their world literally crumbles around them, one feels their loss. With a riveting final image, Grave of the Fireflies presents itself as a sad but necessary film. Rating: 88
