The movie opens with Sam the Scientologist, played by Tom Cruise, being ejected bodily from a saloon and hurled onto the dirty streets of Wogtown:
Scene 2: The bad guy “Imonda Internet” emerges from the saloon. A showdown on the dirty streets of Wogtown between Scientology and the Internet shapes up. This powerful metaphor between the forces of good (Scientology) and evil (The Internet) defines the existential struggle for Scientologists:
Message: Sam represents COB. Sam’s gun represents the IAS. The bullets in Sam’s gun and on his gun belt represent donations to the IAS. Thus, the movie’s central message is conveyed in the opening seconds of the film: Have you donated to the IAS to put bullets into Sam’s gun? Or are you a CICS dilettante?
……but the bullets in Tom’s gun turned out to be blanks as the IAS hadn’t raised enough money from the parishioners to buy real ones. And so the forces of evil won the day and a new dark age of drugs, war, crime and insanity engulfed Teegeeack and its thetans spent the next trillion years shivering in agonized darkness.

Aha! Andrew has just covertly admitted that he is the man behind the Tenyaka Memorial! Now we have the WHO behind all of the attacks on Scientology.
As always, Tom Is the consummate professional, he does his own stunts and his leading ladies find him utterly charming. I can’t wait for the sequel. You will note I asked nothing about Scientology or his personal life and he does his own stunts.
