Mission: Impossible III [AKA M: i: III] (2006, dir. J. J. Abrams)

Ethan Hunt is called out of retirement to track down an arms dealer. Slick third instalment that delivers in terms of action, lead actor stunts, and popcorn flick shenanigans, establishing a template for later series entries.

Another review needed? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s POV.

Sleepless (2017, dir. Baran bo Odar)

A rogue cop has his son kidnapped by drug dealers. A day-from-hell thriller which lifts from Die Hard and Snake Eyes (it’s a remake of Nuit Blanch) in working to sustain momentum; for the most part it holds itself together.
