Film: Mission: Impossible III

[New sign at The Riverside]

Hard to believe: it's been two months since I was last at the cinema. And in that time The Riverside Theatre has put a new dress on: check out the modern, elegant sign above the door.

Emma suggested the reason for my absence is that I'm being more selective about the films I watch. It's a good theory, utterly destroyed by tonight's choice.

I can see how Mission: Impossible III ticks all the right boxes of its genre, but ultimately it left me far from satisfied. It's a horribly violent film. I can cope with a depiction of violence that is comical or way over-the-top but this was on the wrong side of mercenary for my liking.
