The Best Highbrow Review of a Lowbrow Movie.

Remember Roger Ebert? Of course, you do. He was the best. Luckily for us they got Matt Zoller Seitz to lead RogerEbert.com after Roger left us. And even though he isn't Roger Ebert, I'm sure Roger would approve of him a full 200%. Check out this zinger from his Mission Impossible V review.

 If American films have proved anything, it's that Tom Cruise is The Best: at pool, at flying jets, at mixing cocktails, at racing cars, at building an airtight legal case against brutal Marine colonels and southern gangsters, at whipping sexist bros into a frenzy, at representing football players in contract negotiations, at defending Earth against invasion by extra-dimensional monsters and, in the "Mission: Impossible" series, at battling heavily armed bad guys while running and jumping and fighting and driving and hacking and playing “Flight of the Bumblebee” on the violin if need be.
