Not only being a romantic face, actor Tom Cruise has proven Hollywood class with a series of successful action movie projects.
1. Mission: Impossible – Fallout
In addition to the perfect performance of Tom Cruise, Mission: Impossible – Fallout also owns a “terrible” cast including Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby and Angela Basset. Although Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation with Tom Cruise and director and screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie received much praise, the next Mission Impossible they created was even more successful. Fallout is considered the best Mission: Impossible movie, with the scale and action choreography pushed to the maximum.
Meanwhile, the audience discovers Ethan Hunt’s complex inner self: for the first time, viewers get an inside look at the person of the seemingly impregnable hero. Thereby, emotions resonate with action effects to create a rare experience.
2. Edge of Tomorrow
One of Tom Cruise’s admirable qualities is the way he consistently chooses ambitious original projects. Although Edge of Tomorrow is based on the comic book All You Need Is Kill, the work still brings a new breath to the sci-fi genre. Combining elements of the success of Groundhog Day and Independence Day, Edge of Tomorrow revolves around a time loop set in the midst of an alien invasion.
Not only is the movie special in terms of plot, but Cruise himself is playing a character unlike any he’s played before: a coward and one-sided. Powered by the talent of Emily Blunt, Edge of Tomorrow proves the action legend still has the ability to surprise even when audiences have known him for decades.
3. Knight And Day
The 2010 action-comedy work marked a turning point in Tom Cruise’s career from challenging, serious projects to entertaining choices. The juggling act between Cruise and Cameron Diaz is extremely convincing, attracting the audience with humorous lines and beautiful action scenes. Director James Mangold handles the film’s pacing firmly, while Patrick O’Neil’s script contains interesting moments that viewers don’t want to miss.
4. Top Gun and Top Gun Maverick series (Vietnamese title: Super Pilot Maverick)
The work that brought Tom Cruise’s name from a potential face to stardom was the 1986 blockbuster Top Gun. A chronicle of elite fighter pilots from late director Tony Scott was a huge hit at its release, cementing its place in American culture for generations to come and still to this day. It is a classic that cannot be ignored.
Top Gun displays many hallmarks of Scott’s acumen as a filmmaker, particularly his adept at capturing flashy action moments. Tom Cruise’s character Maverick is not only charismatic, but most importantly, his leadership qualities, determination, courage and respect make him the epitome of the American hero. The film celebrates healthy masculinity while addressing the emotional aspects of men sincerely.
For Super Pilot Maverick, it can be said that this is Tom Cruise’s extended dream since the 1986 blockbuster. “All my life, I’ve wanted to make movies, or fly an airplane, or go into space. I I want to jump off buildings, race big bikes. My life is filled with stories: whether it’s telling or creating characters.”
The dedication of the star and the direction of Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun Maverick offers impressive footage from the point of view of fighter pilots, aerobatics and combat lessons, teamwork. … It was Tom Cruise who created the content of flight training for the actors in the crew, in order to bring the work as realistic as possible.
Super Pilot Maverick officially opens on May 27, 2022.
