That Tom Cruise likes to run just a bit, doesn’t he? I’ve taken note of a few instances where he is THE RUNNING MAN. You know the scene; he sets off with that very intense stare, and looks like he’s not going to be able to stop even if he wanted to. Like a man possessed…
THE RUNNING MAN STARRING TOM CRUISE
Let’s start with a quick run through Times Square for Vanilla Sky (2001).
In Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report (2002) everybody runs…
Chased by aliens in War of the Worlds (2005).
Like a grey-haired hound in Collateral (2004).
“If we run, they’d find us…” – Tom Cruise running in The Firm (1993).
It’s a consistent theme for these action packed movies, starting with the first in the series from 1996:
The second film was awful but the third was much-improved. Running from a bridge attack in Mission: Impossible III (2006) opposite the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Escaping the Kremlin in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011).
Catching a plane, as you do, for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015).
The most “Tom Cruise” movie moment ever in Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)?
RUNNING FOR SURVIVAL
It’s all about survival in Oblivion (2013).
And also The Mummy (2017).
But for Edge of Tomorrow (2014) the mantra is “LIVE | DIE | REPEAT”
