As unlikely as producer and star Tom Cruise might seem as the leader of the plot – wearing an eye patch, no less – he does a credible job and surrounds himself with expert co-stars including Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp, Bill Nighy and Eddie Izzard. Singer reunites with co-writer Christopher McQuarrie, who won an Oscar for his script for "The Usual Suspects."
DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Cruise, Singer, McQuarrie and co-writer Nathan Alexander. digital copy of the movie. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
