A mayor in Norway, who is said to have destroyed the motorcycles used in the latest Mission: Impossible movie, has admitted that he has taken on a cheeky mission of his own – that is keep the bicycles as mementos.
Mayor Jan Ove Tryggestad kept two of the overturned bicycles a secret for almost three years, after they were used in a death-defying stunt in New York City. death calculation involves franchise star Tom Cruise riding his motorcycle off a cliff, jumping off his bike and parachuting to the ground.
The stunt was filmed on Mount Helsetkopen in Stranda in September 2020 and used a total of eight motorcycles.
Tryggestad intended to destroy the bicycles after the scene, but he never did.
“A mayor in Stranda doesn’t always follow the rules and regulations,” he explained mischievously in an interview.
Cruise takes on the role of ace spy Ethan Hunt in the blockbuster sequel, now in theaters starring Hayley Atwell and Vanessa Kirby.
In a four-star review of the film for independenceCritic Clarisse Loughrey referred to the cliff stunt, writing: “The action sequences are always dynamic and always adapt to their environment: a gunfight in a sandstorm focused on possibility stealth and precision, while a Vespa chasing the many stairs of Rome is just cartoon chaos.
“It all culminates in a completely insane stunt in which Cruise rides a motorcycle off a cliff and then parachutes onto a moving train.
“You will leave” death calculation the same way you always do: wonder how Cruise could outdo himself in the sequel – until, inevitably, he does.”
Talking to independence about working with Cruise and director Chris McQuarrie in a recent interview, Atwell described the creation of her character – a master thief named Grace – as a real collaborative process.
“Even the way they phrased it: ‘We’re looking for an actor to work with’ instead of ‘We wrote this character,'” she said.
“You say, ‘Your language has always given me power and agency. You want everything for me and not me?’ That’s great parenting!”
She said that Cruise and McQuarrie like “to be surrounded by really strong, smart women,” adding that they “love to see women grow and have self-control, so if I ever try to play the game.” flirting or flirting, or playing hooker, they’ll probably be like, ‘What are you doing? That’s not you!'”
