I’m starting to just get frustrated now. Three movies into this series and Tom Cruise has yet to fight a bear. I realize that Cruise’s habit of doing his own stunts would mean he would probably try to actually fight a real bear (an ill-advised venture for any man or beast), but you’d think the people behind this series would at least realize that having Ethan Hunt running away from a bear would be riveting cinema. Then again, this movie was written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, so the bear would probably be after Hunt’s magic blood.
But there is a bright side to all of this! It’s only for a brief moment, but in one of the scenes in Italy we see the bare ass of a statue in a museum. And since Bear Reviews is both homophone friendly and pro-nude art, Mission Impossible III finally gets this series on the Bear Board.
