AQ and PQ is stupendous and great demo material. But as time goes on, I really hated this movie despite a deep respect for Brad Bird and what he did with the Incredibles. Technically it looked the most modern and flashy but as far as story, character, and entertainment I give it an F and IMO the worst of the series. It is incredibly shallow and never took anything serious. Esp the opening act in the prison break out where Cruise keeps looking at the camara and horsing around and this seem to go on and on and on it was a precursor to what's to come.
Same with that scene where Renner in that floating chamber where he does this 3 stooges imitation act it was ridiculous. Look, there's a fine line between adding humor to action film but to the point where they goof off and go over board is really poor film making. Another example is with Cruise in the wall climbing with the gloves, again too much goofing off.
