We wreck Tom Cruise’s “Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning part 1” and discuss:

- Action, consequential chases;
- and other such stuff and things and stuff.
“Sequels are generally done in a rush. They’re done with a sense of urgency. The first time, you spend a long time developing to get it over the line. The second time, you don’t. Your expectations are different, and your motivations are different.“ – Alex Garland
