The movie is pretty good. It's what I came to expect from a good MI movie. Te whole movie is a rolling BMW and Apple commercial, but I had no complaints

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Its a good action flick but see it in IMAX if you can. That way you get to see the opening 6 minute scene of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, which is amazing. Great combo for the inner dork. Batman and BMWs. The BMWs are a bit under used IMHO
