I can’t say I loved it, though I found it sociologically interesting. They are still drawing on George Lucas for influence and inspiration? The movie is not so much anti-Woke as pre-Woke, with cliched ethnic characters and adoring women waiting for the heroic men to come back from mission. Little offends me, but what was interesting here was how uninteresting and un-self-aware the treatment was. There are bar scenes and mentor scenes where the same comment would apply. The visuals and aero scenes were very good, but I thought not spectacular. The ending should have been the opposite of what it was. Perhaps most notably, Tom Cruise wears a Taiwanese flag on his jacket. But it seems only for the Taiwanese release.
