We know of many movies that should have never continued such as, Mission Impossible, Rocky, and some others. “Scorcher 6” definitely seems like a new Tom Cruise movie where he comes in and saves the world, against all odds, and becomes a hero.

The gore is much more extravigant and he can afford some special appearences like the 5,6,7,8s playing in kill bill vol.1. Ref.The cinema book 2nd edition p100 "Tarantinos films mix violence with intertextual homage. He wants an audience to notice the way his films relate to a history of earlier film, fiction, t.v., thus combining movie fiction and movie criticism by playfully referring to movie history and mini history contained in his stars."
