    I found the movie to be surprisingly entertaining. Enjoyed it as much as the first one. Very engaging and surprising plot. I had expected it to be eye-rollingly predictable but it actually had some clever ideas and twists.

    The score, on the other hand...epic fail.

    Apparently, Balfe will be composing the score for the next Mission: Impossible film.

    That's incredibly disappointing news.

    He's had one of the worst years I can think of for a major film composer. I'm not expecting much from his Mission Impossible work.

    Balfe's work on the Penguins of Madagascar movie assures me he can knock this one out of the park. Every mission impossible score so far has been excellent, keep it up Lorne!
    Bach's music is heartless and robotic.

    Soul-destroying news, but not unexpected.

    I'll be surprised. He's yet to show any ability to compose anything beyond a catchy tune. The previous Mission Impossible scores, minus (unsurprisingly) the Zimmer/MV one, have all worked beyond catchy tunes; they're expertly and intricately constructed scores. To go from Elfman to Giacchino to Kraemer to Balfe is a stupendously short-sited decision on the part of the producers.

    My thoughts exactly. The series has maintained an impressively high level in terms of music. Okay, so the Zimmer score may not go down in the annals of film music history, but it's a guilty pleasure of mine.

    But the Elfman, Giacchino and Kraemer scores are top notch! I'd been looking so much forward to another Kraemer score, and now this.

    I can't express how bummed out I am over this...
