By now you've seen the trailer which has once again put Tom Cruise squarely in the drivers seat of action movies. At one commenter pointed out, Tom is now older than Wilford Brimley was when he did Cocoon. In case you think he's phoning it in, consider this:
That last scene with him hanging off the plane: He did that stunt. Live. Just as you see it minus safety gear. EIGHT TIMES before he got it right.
So Tom, well done. you've got my respect!
