Moustache Trailer Reactions | Mile 22 | Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

It appears that Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) isn't done causing trouble for Ethan Hunt and the IMF. His escape re-ignites the rivalry between the Impossible Mission Force and their sister agency, the CIA. A matter only made worse by Hunt's determination to be the one to bring Lane in. Fallout is said to focus more on Hunt's personal life, which might explain said determination. Michelle Monaghan returns as Ethan's wife Julia. There's a shot in the trailer of the two of them taking part in some sort of wedding ceremony, only for what appears to be a nuclear explosion to be seen in the distance. Now, the Mission: Impossible movies aren't known for their dream sequences but there's a chance that's what this is.

All of the team are back bar Jeremy Renner's William Brandt, Renner was busy working on the Avengers sequels. Alec Baldwin is back as the newly crowned Secretary of the IMF and we're introduced to his opposite number in the CIA, played by Angela Bassett. But it's her right hand man - August Walker (a moustachioed Henry Cavill) that I find most interesting. And it's not because of the moustache! Walker is more than a bit intense, he's the CIA's "bull in a china shop". Other than that we know nothing about him or his allegiances. Is he good? Is he bad? Or is he just a man on a mission? Maybe he has a grudge against Hunt or The IMF. Who knows?

The trailer shows some beautiful locations as well as some breath taking action sequences. Including a cliff-side fight, more of the epic helicopter chase and the famous building jump in which Cruise broke his ankle. But it's alright because Benji (Simon Pegg) is on hand to provide support in the only way he knows how.

Having not been blown away by Rogue Nation - the series peaked for me with Ghost Protocol - I wasn't all that bothered about a follow up. But so far the trailers have really impressed me. I am  really interested to learn more about who Ethan Hunt is and how Julia will re-enter the story.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout hits cinemas on 26/07/18

Mile 22

In the latest from Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg, a specialist team known as "Overwatch" - operating out of the US Embassy in Bogota - must escort a Police Officer (Iko Uwais) in possession of sensitive information out of the country. Mile 22 is rumoured to be the first in a trilogy of movies featuring the Overwatch team.

Nothing is known of the information he holds, but it's clear there are several interested parties. A fact made clear by an attack on Iko Uwais' Li Noor from within the US Embassy. It's a brutal scene, but one in which we get a glimpse of Uwais' considerable skill as a martial artist. From there we are introduced to Wahlberg and his team, including Ronda Rousey and Lauren Cohan as their mission begins to go pear-shaped. John Malkovich - sporting the worst hair piece since "Rug-Rat" in The Wolf of Wall Street - also stars as Bishop, the boss monitoring things from the embassy.

The trailer doesn't give too much away, it's the usual snapshot of story, characters and action. I get the feeling that this could be a fun action movie, Wahlberg and Berg definitely have a good track record. Whether it will be a surprise summer blockbuster, only time will tell. But hopefully, Mile 22 will mark the beginning of a brilliant Hollywood career for Iko Uwais.

Mile 22 is in cinemas from 10/08/18

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!

Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.

From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism.

Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles.

This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a su…
