This is by far the best Mission Impossible film by a long shot. It really is amazing that the sixth film in the franchise is better than its predecessors combined and if this standard maintains then it’s a franchise that certainly isn’t going away any time soon. Mission: Impossible – Fallout is not only as good as you’ve heard, it’s better.

Everyone’s back, director Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson. Also featuring some new additions, Angela Bassett, Henry Cavill and the infamous moustache that ruined Justice League. The story is simple enough, stop terrorists getting nuclear weapons at all costs. But the story isn’t where it’s at, it’s not about the gadgets or even the ridiculous masks that I can’t seem to get over. No it’s all about the action and the stunts and wow does it deliver. Once the action starts it just keeps on coming, an intense thrill from start to finish. The action sequences are spectacular. If there’s one thing you can count on is the stunts get better every time. Not only are they well coordinated they’re clear to watch. You’re never sitting there wondering who’s hitting who, the nausea inducing shaky cam sending you over the edge (Yeah I’m looking at you Bourne 5) or watching a car chase in a comical stream of quickly edited shots leaving you not knowing what the hell is going on (hang your head in shame Quantum of Solace). Mission: Impossible – Fallout is action filmmaking done to perfection with an electrifying film score by Lorne Balfe that compliments every scene, I loved it.

Some of you may know I’m not exactly the biggest Tom Cruise fan and that’s putting it mildly but damn he’s one hell of a stunt man. It’s not just the running, and the running. He’s doing everything from hanging on to the side of a helicopter to shattering his ankle while jumping from one building to another. The stunts and the film itself have exceeded expectations so believe me when I say under no circumstance should you miss this movie. Highly recommended and you know if I’m recommending a Tom Cruise movie then it has to be worth it.

This film is very overrated. Action sequences are good but not enough to overcome the generic story. I wont be seeing the next MI unless things are different.

It has the two overdone things I hate, car chases and especially the DREADED COUNTDOWN TIMER. Talk about unoriginal. As soon as they showed the timer I rolled my eyes like I do in the other 50 movies I've seen that have used it. Gee, I wonder if they will save the world at the last second like in all the others? Without giving anything away, logically it appears there was no reason for the bad guy to use a timer. I also got a little tired of the constant changes about who the bad guy is, and who the good guy is. The movie is well made, action packed and entertaining, but if you want originality look elsewhere. Expand

But it suffers from the same problems that begin to plague every long-running franchise at some point or another. Mainly a lack of danger and a larger history that makes it somewhat inaccessible to newcomers. I mean, are the IMF ever not going to save the day? I think not.

We already know that Hunt and his crew are going to be okay so there's no real urgency. Luckily, the people behind the movie knew this and took a more sentimental approach that celebrates the characters and their relationships with one another. It's surprisingly effective, but only if you've been keeping up with the series over the years. Naturally this won't have any impact on those popping in for the first time to see for themselves why this is being heralded by so many as "one of the greatest action movies ever made." A praise I find to be a little overzealous.

The set-pieces are gorgeously shot, I don't have words to describe how clean the choreography for the fist-fight and shootouts is, and it's crazy to think Cruise performed all these stunts himself. That being said, I found nothing here that was able to top anything from Rogue Nation. How do you beat a guy hanging on side of a plane after all?

The plot is your standard collection of spy movie cliches, only dialed up to 11. There are more twists, double crosses, and hidden agendas than I would have ever thought could be fit into a single movie. And, big surprise, the new characters are the ones you can't trust. Because of how melodramatic all of that seems, Fallout is at it's best when it's focusing on the action at hand. Mostly because it's a lot of fun to watch Cruise and Cavill make a mess out of what should have been smooth operations. These are some of the most buffoonish spies you'll ever meet. Not only is luck almost never on their side, but they do a great job of regularly screwing themselves over in humorous ways.

Main character Ethan Hunt is by far the most compelling part of the package. The way he analyzes every move he makes to ensure that his friends and civilians aren't harmed all while being riddled with guilt over past actions is endearing. I loved how the film explored his selfless motivations and sacrifices all while being backed up by a wonderfully layered performance its star. This is coming from someone who's not a Tom Cruise fan.

Henry Cavill makes a better villain than he ever has a hero, but is still vocally stiff. His monotone delivery of lines is at odds with his wonderfully expressive face. Those looks of condescension are pure gold.

Mission Impossible is still perfectly capable of delivering a steady supply of thrills, but at the same time has become dreadfully familiar. As a result it's hard to care about the needlessly complex and somewhat melodramatic quest for plutonium even with the added emotional edge that comes from the returning characters and thoughtful exploration of its lead. This might be the best put together in the series, but it falls just short of its most direct predecessor in terms of unforgettable moments. None this is to say I didn't enjoy the movie. It can be very exciting. I just think that it, and the spy genre as a whole, could use a bit of reinvention to make things feel fresh again because the predictability is only getting more noticeable with each passing release.

The production of Tom Cruise’s sixth installment in this decades-old spy series was famously put on hold following a near disaster during the filming of a stunt in which Cruise’s Ethan Hunt attempts to leap from the top of one building acrossThe production of Tom Cruise’s sixth installment in this decades-old spy series was famously put on hold following a near disaster during the filming of a stunt in which Cruise’s Ethan Hunt attempts to leap from the top of one building across a chasm to the safety of another building. The failed stunt resulted in fractured ankles and 8 weeks of delayed production. The buildup, publicity and the motivation behind this stunt is a perfect analogy for Mission Impossible: Fallout. The minds behind this film set out to create a eye-catching, edge of your seat spectacle and succeed despite several near misses.

The premise here is that Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and his Impossible Mission Force team of spies botch a nuclear arms deal and are tasked with retrieving the goods by any means necessary while under the watchful eye of the CIA with a thuggish Henry Cavill acting as babysitter long for the ride on the IMFs exploits. Along the way, the audience is treated to a series of amazing action set pieces including a death-defying skydiving sequence, shootouts, chase-sequences, and the aforementioned leap of faith. Along the way, Simon Pegg does an excellent job of providing the levity and the excellently relentless Rebecca Ferguson acts as foil to Cruise’s Hunt. If the casting sounds familiar, it should since many characters and plot points carry over from McQuarrie and Cruise’s previous collaboration (Rogue Nation), and it is ultimately to the film’s benefit as the casts dynamics work well and helps to flesh out this universe that the filmmaker seems to be building. There are laughs; there are thrills; but most importantly, there is motivation for all of these people to be on screen together which doesn’t feel forced or unnatural. However, despite everything this movie does well, there are a few hiccups along the way.

To be fair, at a runtime of 2 hours 28 minutes, the movie does not drag or punish you for sitting through it. The filmmaker at work here does a good job of pacing the action to allow the audience time to breathe and soak in the splendor before jumping into another intense scene. In addition, the exposition (and there is a lot of it) feels natural as spies need to be briefed and debriefed on missions and does not give the audience many reasons to doze off during scenes that don’t contain running or shooting. What does happen though is a case of over extension. Fallout contains what seems like a natural, traditional first, second and third act; yet it decides to cram in a fourth act for the heck of it at the 2 hour mark. It’s almost as if McQuarrie and Cruise wanted to begin the sequel to the film before the credits rolled. And this is what’s unfair to viewers: subjecting them to the overindulgence of the filmmaker rather than giving them a movie going experience they are not soon to forget for the RIGHT reasons. Besides this, the movie also seems to waste great actors at the expense of Cruise’s screen time. Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin all essentially provide cameos when their characters seem to warrant more. And most egregiously, Henry Cavill’s brash, roguish super spy (a role he seems born to play) is unfairly pushed aside on several occasions.

Despite a few missteps, and a challenging runtime, Fallout provides a spectacle that few other movies are able to accomplish these days. It awes, provides laughs, and constantly reminds its audience why some movies just have to be seen on the big screen. Similar to the aforementioned stunt mishap, Fallout has every intention of impressing its audience with the sheer size, danger and gall it takes to constantly raise the stakes in a genre that relies on tropes and familiar plots. But as the real-life story showed us, no matter how meticulous the planning that goes into such a risk, it does not guarantee a perfect shot. 3 out of 5 Stars

One hell of a good action movie, runs a little long and is a little too formulaic.

Henry Cavill is awesome and needs more rolls like this

'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' is filled with more great stunt work from its lead, Tom Cruise, solid direction from Christopher McQuarrie, and some fantastic work from its supporting cast including; Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg. Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) heads to Berlin to intercept three plutonium cores before the Apostles get there and sell them to John Lark. However, things turn around for the worst as Luther (Ving Rhames) is taken hostage, and Hunt chooses to save Luther's life leading the plutonium to be taken. Ethan is then sent to Paris, where he is joined alongside agent August Walker (Henry Cavill), where they try to take back the plutonium. When things still don't go according to plan, as they cannot find the right enemy, they're given more tasks to try and track down the culprit. What makes this movie exciting is both the stunt and camerawork. The action fills the movie with a sense of gravitas and you can feel every sense of danger, not just for the characters, but for the actors too. The hand-to-hand fight scenes are practical, brutal and intense. No CGI gimmicks, no flashy choreography, just plain and simple work by a group of actors. It feels raw and intense. This is a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat almost the entire time. You will not believe your eyes when you see this picture. Expand

While it is commendable that the action scenes are done largely practical, what truly does make them work is the understanding the directors have with knowing how to make great action scenes. The set pieces are fun, the choreography is great, and you are not questioning how any of this could happen in real life. They just do! It's a secret rhythm of tension and escapism that truly make this franchise one of the greats! However the thing that truly sets this movie back from being as amazing as the hype makes it out to be, at least for me, is the script. Now I am well aware that in terms of storytelling, the Mission: Impossible films are not all that great, and I am okay with that because I never felt like the previous films tried to be something that it's not, nor do the scripts detract from the overall enjoyment (the exception to that rule being the second film, obviously). However, the writing for this movie really does hamper a lot of the fun. For one, the dialogue can be really bad at times and often comes off as cheesy without any self-awareness for how cornball they truly are. Not to mention how many times the movie tries to be clever with it's multiple plot twists that just gets more obnoxious as the film goes on. Especially when it comes with the big reveal of who this mole agent is, which is so painfully obvious the movie never tried to hide it. There is even a scene which blatantly shows its cards to the audience. I won't spoil it but if you have seen it, you know what I am talking about. The acting is a bit hit or miss as well. While there are not truly amazing performances in this movie, for the most part the actors do a good job and are totally invested, with Tom Cruse, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, and Sean Harris doing solid work. However, the weakest link of the main cast is Henry Cavil. I do not mind him as an actor as so many people do that I know of, however here he is quite terrible. So much of his delivery is wooden and stiff, he does not look like he is having any fun at all with his role, and his accent is phony at best, as he sounds like he is doing an impression of Spottswoode from Team America. His mustache is pretty good, I must say. Angela Bassett and, surprisingly, Alec Baldwin are also pretty bad here too.

Fallout is certainly overrated in parts, but it is still another great film in the franchise. Should they stop making them while they are ahead? Yeah probably. But regardless, I am still looking forward to where the series comes to next!

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Pretty hard to sit through. I can watch the first MI film every time it's on TV but this was pretty awful. Riding a motorcycle 100MPH through Paris with no helmet (in the wrong direction!!) hitting a car at 40 MPH, bouncing a few times and then brushing yourself off before dashing away? Really? This is the stuff for video games, not movies. Who, apart from a 15-year-old boy, is going to believe any of this stuff? You can tell many of the reader reviews are fake because, as smart as the studio assistants think they are being, they still start their "reviews" with lines like: "The finest action movie of the year..." and "one of the best actions movies ever made..." Really?? Real user reviews are quite different and usually start out like: "This movie was pretty good but..." or "Something about MI was weird..." The final blow to mind-numbing boredom came when Cruise (who's getting way to old to be doing this stuff) finds himself in a helicopter and not only manages to fly it but fly it like a stuntman for 10 minutes through the most difficult Himalayan canyons and, Terminator-like, figures out the "altimeter, check, speed check..." how hard can it be right?

When Fallout released I had only seen up to III, so I watched Ghost Protocol and Rogue Nation in the days up to going to see Fallout. Ghost Protocol in particular is an excellent film, and Fallout is easily the best in the series to date. It's intense, well-paced, has a few quiet but very powerful moments, and has a well-rounded cast. The addition of Henry Cavill is an interesting one, especially considering what they do with his character. It benefits greatly from involving many returning characters, especially the villain and new female lead from Rogue Nation. The action scenes do not disappoint: brutal fistfights, car and motorcycle chases, and a climactic helicopter duel that had my moviegoing companion literally on the edge of their seat. I don't get to go out to many movies aside from Marvel ones and the occasional Disney movie. Fallout was a great summer blockbuster and well worth seeing in theaters. Expand

And that will already tell you how Mission Impossible Fallout,the sixth (yes. SIXTH)
WARNING! This Review will mostly consist of bias towards how IMAX is the best place to watch movies. BIAS! Because when you're at stakes,he has your back.
And that will already tell you how Mission Impossible Fallout,the sixth (yes. SIXTH) entry of a franchise consistent of movies upgraded after the previous one,takes all the other Summer Movies (except Incredibles 2) and throws them at the Garbage Bin like nothing ever happened.
Oh,and also it's the closest thing to the best of the franchise and,whatever…
But going down to the point,yes. Of course it rocks. Maybe more than I expected.
And hey,for a movie that made me jump off my seat,scream two times (I was at the IMAX showing,so the loudness made it for everything) and having the best use 3D since Avatar,it really did its job.
Here we have a movie that may enter into the Staples of action movies that has an ingenious use of plot twists (with one that made me laugh,being in my mind “so that is what Jurassic World 2 tried to do!”), exhilarating and tension-filled action sequences (full of great usage of IMAX Cameras more than their previous effort) and a screenplay that feels like a school lesson that you need to listen carefully because it's gonna make it for the exams the next day.
The story manages to give away a few nods and connections to previous MI Movies (especially Rogue Nation) which was really enjoyable to see as a fan of this franchise.
Speaking of the story,it also manages to get intense sometimes,with one death sequence that was so creepy,it reminded me of how TJ Miller’s character died in Transformers 4. (Ugh). Not only that,but the way it starts to build up the tension in several scenes only to find out that “Wait! It was all a set-up for something”.
And trust me when I say Vanessa Kirby’s presence as a secondary character was better than the 5 minutes of Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Stink 2. Oh,and thank God they gave Solomon Lane more stuff to do as a villain. He was threatening in Rogue Nation,believe me,but I kind of forgot his motivation in that movie…
The Action Sequences are Adrenaline Fuel. The intense kind of Adrenaline Fuel,and that's where my IMAX Bias starts,so get ready. *Sings like the Animaniacs showing every nation*: Jumping the seats during every gunshot,looking away during the HALO Jump - covering my eyes while Tom Cruise hits a damn Helicopter! - The Paris motorcycle sequence almost peed my pants - And during the helicopter Sequences I screamed at the theater two times! *Stops singing*
Seriously,though. When did you scream at an Action Movie (on an IMAX Theater) that has a thrilling Helicopter scene last time? Oh,and SEE IT IN IMAX 3D,DAMMIT!
As much as everyone calls it a “Gimmick” these days,it helped out for a lot of Action going on,like during the HALO Jump,where Cruise almost jumped out of the screen,or the Helicopter Sequence.
To continue the gold nuggets,Lorne Balfe (Composer of Pacific Rim Uprising and LEGO Batman) has finally made his signature score,with a reliance on 'The Plot Thickens’,yeah (just like Joe Kraemer last time),but he somehow manages to put new life into the theme,while accompanying it with a slew of exciting cues (and a Zimmer-esque theme that hearing on an IMAX felt like me being treated with infinite plates of 24-Carat Gold...Mmmm...Gold…).
And….Wait. No CG? All Practical? Are you sure? That death sequence felt CG… Well what's the point nontheless,it was all great,so…
And of course,aside the acting doing a great job,I could see a Tom Cruise in there determined and motivated to do all of this shenanigans that could've killed him in no time (*coff coff* The Ankle *coff coff*).
Oh,wow…You know? For a movie like Mission Impossible Fallout,I didn't think of coming out of the theater like this,realized with multiple emotions at once. Usually,when I see a movie,I stay there like a normal person,but...WOW,this movie unlocked my emotions in no time,so I commend it for that too.
A year ago,when Dunkirk had come out,I saw it in IMAX (of course) I felt the tension,and I grabbed myself for a couple of minutes, but I never thought a dumb fun Action Movie like Mission freaking Impossible would make me emotionally alive. Hell,Infinity War didn't do nothing for me on first viewing,aside the full “Immersion”.
So yeah,Mission Impossible Fallout is the best movie of the bunch that with Christopher McQuarrie's intelligent direction,a coherent story and action sequences that make you feel like an idiot if you didn't see them on IMAX,manages to also be the best movie of the Summer,if not of 2018 so far.
Oh,and SEE IT IN IMAX 3D.
End of the IMAX Bias. This message will self-destruct in 5 Seconds.

The MI franchise has a remarkable talent for improving itself. There is one scene where you can automatically predict how it'll turn out. However, everything was so well edited I was tricked into feeling tense anyway.

Director Christopher McQuarrie has an excellently deliberate sense of shots and pacing with both the suspense and fight scenes. The action scenes equally don't disappoint.

For a nice change of pace, the movie focuses a little more on Ethan Hunt's mindset. He finds himself going undercover with dangerous people. There's a fair amount of tension and pathos to be mined from his facing the difficulty of trying to be a good man and completing his mission in a flawed, murky world.

Now I wouldn't consider these deal-breakers, but there are a couple nitpicks. The film is a bit long. Some of the action scenes do go on and on. Also, it wouldn't have hurt if the plot was a bit more streamlined. The middle does feel a little sidequestey.

The ultimate action summer block buster that I urge everyone to see. Even if you haven't seen the previous MI movies, it is easy to follow on to this. I loved this so much, the action scene did not drag and the cinematography was so beautiful.

It's at least equal to the first film. The ludicrousness and unbelievability is somehow a strength. Very funny at times too. I hesitated on the 10 but i think it's so rare to get a film that becomes more and more enjoyable as it goes on.

One of the best action movies of the year or maybe the best, super realistic and quality action scenes. There's a special scene that keeps the viewer in their seat full of tension. I can't believe Black Panther has a higher rating than this movie.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout is directed once again by Christopher McQuarrie, the director of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, written by Christopher McQuarrie and Bruce Geller and starring Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill and Rebecca FergusonMission: Impossible - Fallout is directed once again by Christopher McQuarrie, the director of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, written by Christopher McQuarrie and Bruce Geller and starring Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill and Rebecca Ferguson with tons of other great cast!

The best intentions often come back to haunt you. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.

I really loved Mission: Impossible - Fallout, I missed these breathtaking action scenes this year, but finally, I found what I've been looking for for very so long, and thanks goes to Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

Everything in this movie was completely amazing, except for a small leak.. and it is the script... As I said it's not big, it's just a bothering sentence is repeating every plan..

Let's get started with the only thing I didn't like about this movie, and as I said it's the script. Okay, why every thing they are about to do, or planned to do, or anything to do, they just have to say "I'll figure it out" or "I'm working on it"? What? Didn't you plan for anything for this movie or something?
These two sentences bothered the hell out of me, actually! But it's nothing compared to everything that I loved in this movie.

First of all, the action sequence, it's one of the best action movie of all the time! Every action scene I was like "OMG, thank you for giving me a masterpiece in action, thank you!". I think it's the best action movie in 2018 so far.

Quickly quickly.. let's move to the performances... I loved them all! What an act-convincing?! I have no other comment about the acting, cause it was quite perfect!

Oh, we're not done yet, we still have the fascinating storytelling! I don't want to spoil anything, but I need to say that don't believe what you're watching, cause they will surprise you like hell!!!!
The story was good in every way that it could be, maybe at the beginning it didn't get my attention, but then it got my whole attention!

Believe me, no one is overreacting when he says that this movie is a masterpiece, and if you don't believe us, go and see it yourself. It will not let you down, never ever!

I actually wasn't excited to watch this movie, the trailer didn't get me at all, but it did actually give me what I want, it was way better than I expected it's gonna be!

Oh, one more sadly thing I just remembered that I didn't like, the OST wasn't that good as it was so usual. But it wasn't so bad!

I'm gonna give Mission: Impossible - Fallout an A, I think it's a magnificent movie, and definitely a worth-watching movie, I highly recommend watching this movie, guys.

Okay, guys, thank you as always for reading my review, hope you like, and if you have any comment, please, say it to get improved.

It has lots of action, lots of "now you see me...", doublecrossing gone to so stupid levels it hurts and in the end all of this feels pointless and flat.

This movie does NOT deserve a score of any higher than 4 out of 10.

Certainly this is not a terrible movie, but it is much too long. 90 minutes would have been fine, but add an hour of Ethan running and repetitious car/motorcycle/helicopter chases and things get pretty dull. It doesn’t help that it’s obviousCertainly this is not a terrible movie, but it is much too long. 90 minutes would have been fine, but add an hour of Ethan running and repetitious car/motorcycle/helicopter chases and things get pretty dull. It doesn’t help that it’s obvious that a computer has been used to speed up the “Run, Ethan, Run. Run, Run, Run” sequences. The actors are quirky, Paris and London are nice for car chases, but anybody who has been to these cities knows that it is impossible to drive that fast unless a movie crew has paid to stop traffic early Sunday morning. I’ve seen this kind of thing done before many times – and done in more interesting ways in, for example, Bourne movies. If a lot of the padding had been cleverly cut out of this film, it would have been a whole lot better overall. Expand

Surely, if he had, the director would know the importance of a climax following a stimulating build-up. For the life of me, I simply can’t fathom why Brad Bird wouldn’t have been offered all the world’s currency to direct every MI movie from Ghost Protocol until the end of time. Presumably, J.J Abrams would have been a fool to turn down artistic ownership of both “Star” franchises, so I get why he was out after the fabulous MI:3. But what happened to Bird after Protocol? He delivered the quintessential and nearly flawless, espionage action thriller with the 4th MI entry, only to vanish, leaving the Impossible reigns to McQuarrie- a man who’s seemingly on some arcane mission to deliver “tantric” cinema. Every bit of protracted suspense, every drawn out thrill in McQuarrie’s MI universe S L O W L Y builds to a point when the viewer finally feels the big payout is coming, then...nothing. It’s as if he lives and revels in whatever the cinematic equivalent of “edging” is. I thought it might just be me. But when the last frames in the final Big Scene of Fallout projected in front of me, I knew I’d been right all along and now C. McQuarrie is just trolling us. Expand

Apparently everyone at IMF, CIA, and MI6 (except Ethan Hunt of course) are complete idiots. Angela Basset character should be hung for treason--or at least complete negligence. That movie could have been over about half way through, except the incompetents got in the way. Ethan wont kill good guys but he wastes bad guys (even though they turn out to be working for the good guys--dumb).... And apparently you can survive a helicopter crash in the Himalayas--two of them actually--without the aircraft bursting into flames or caving in. In the final dramatic scenes, Ethan and his team are all on intercom, except when they are not. So many holes. Stupid stupid stupid. Expand

Considering that Mission: Impossible is one of the best action franchises in film history, I was quite excited butAfter reading so many reviews about this film I was sold to the idea that I was going to see the best film of this franchise. Considering that Mission: Impossible is one of the best action franchises in film history, I was quite excited but it turns out that Fallout is not their best film, at least in my opinion, but I don't want you to misunderstand me because this is a great action film.

The franchise doesn't change the formula that has been following since Ghost Protocol. It seems that Tom Cruise finally found a solid formula to follow after the first three films because they felt quite different from one another but these last three films feel at last as a real continuation one after the other. Especially because the cast has probably remained. Notably a character who has become endearing; Simon Pegg's character. Even for the first time the female character managed to reach a sequel.

Fallout even follows for the first time the same narrative line of the previous film because also for the first time we have a continuation with the same villain, in addition to expanding his organization because now the Syndicate is not being persecuted, now there are the Apostles and an infiltrator in the CIA.
I think the Apostles are characters that will undoubtedly play an important role in a very probable seventh installment because I don't see how they can stop Tom Cruise who's still in great shape, keeping an spectacular physical level. The man is over 50 years old and he looks like a youngster of 30. Have no doubts, he firmly remains as the face of the franchise. The additions to the cast have been pleasant and welcome but Mission Impossible is still Tom Cruise's show.

Fallout has a good pace but also has several problems in certain sequences that I did not like especially the final part because I don't want to make a spoiler but the final part involves the helicopter chase that has been seen in the trailers and the sequence is impressive, the problem is that intercalates the action with other things and the attention of what is happening in this part of the film is interrupted and the transition never feels fluid even though they are dealing with a time bomb literally.
Beyond that I can only say that it's a pleasant action experience, it has impressive scenes - there is a persecution in which practically we get to see all midtown Paris - besides that fight in the restrooms despite not lasting more than 3 minutes is one of the best choreographed fights of the whole franchise. Henry Cavill plays a good role and although he may feel a little pigeonholed in the action roles he certainly manages to get above the image of Superman, even with the controversial mustache.

I totally recommend it, go watch it if you like the franchise, if you like the action genre and if you want to see a great entertainment film, quality entertainment.
Fallout is an excellent choice, honestly in a personal opinion, I repeat it's not the best Mission: Impossible film but I think that I can say it would be my second favorite after Rogue Nation. The original is untouchable but this is definitely the most solid sequel we ever had. So go watch it.

It seems impossible (pun intended) for a franchise in this age (Or any age, really) to improve with each subsequent new outings for SIX STRAIGHT MOVIES, but M: I really is that kind of franchise. After really taking off with J.J. Abrams' "M:I 3", "Ghost Protocol" brought the franchise to a new height (Literally), and "Rogue Nation" was even better. "Fallout", however, takes it to a whole new ground. You want chase scenes? They'll give you car chase, motorcycle chase, rooftop chase, and yes, HELICOPTER friggin' chase. You want extreme stunts? Well, Mr. Cruise will give you the freak jumps (One of them actually ended with him breaking his foot), the basement shootouts, the toilet (Yes, toilet) fight, and cliff-hanging fight. It's not all about the actions either. There's the classic fooled-by-a-mask M:I moments, the smart underground spy-stuff, even the drama actually works (Thanks in large part to Fergusson). The chemistry among the cast is, as always, working like a charm. Simply amazing. The story might seem too complicated at times, but if you pay enough attention and dedicate the time to process it, it's really well done. Expand

Unfortunately, despite my eager anticipation for MI: Fallout, I was really disiappointed with the film because it had many problems compared with the other ones. I know I'm suppose to shut my brain for these films but the convuluted plot, hollow character arcs, general lack of tension/levity and multiple plot contrivances made it very hollow after the credits start rolling. First, there are some amazing things about this film. The action and scene flow of the middle section is superb and by far one of the most exhillarating experiences I had. Even seeing Tom Cruise at the old ripe age of 56 pulling of his own stunts is a sight to behold. There is a very exciting fake out in the middle film, and much of the chemistry of the characters still exist in this new installment with the White Widow stealing every scene she is in. However, the film is filled with many problems that make it less enjoyable compared with the rest.

The first problem noticable is that the opening scene(s) before even the credit starts takes way too long and is excruciatingly ponderous. We literally have 4 different scenes which amount to roughly 20 minutes of screentime before the credit role. This makes the film really poorly set up to begin with as characters come and go, and we are uncertain on where the characters are, who is who and what is established after two years since Rogue Nation. Henry Cavill's character is also a bumbling iditot which makes his latter purpose of the film much more ineffective. The first act takes really long to get going and when it does in Paris, its gets very convuluted with little screen time to digest what is actually going on. However, that said once the actual plot gets going, it becomes much more tolerable.

Another problem is that some of the action and choreography aint that great. Many people raved about the Bathroom scene, but that was really short and didnt have much action as compred to films such as John Wick, Oldboy etc. It was meh. Secondly the music is relatively boring and non-existent, as it was clear the new composer is very different from the previous one that worked on Rogue Nation with all the ochestral elements. Also the film paces very slow to get to the middle act. The third act is also filled with plot contrivances but you would know it because they literally spend 10 minutes talking about the character relationships and what is going to happen etc. Another character intergral to the series just randomly appears as well during this time, whilst Henry Cavilles character is reduced to being another generic side character by the end.

Its a shame that MI:Fallout doesn't flow as well as MI:4 and MI:5, but the plot contrivances and plot holes definitely make it one of the most shallowest. I wish they had developed the relationship between the characters more as there is one crucial scene in the middle was executed really well compared with the others. It is an enjoyable film but one that you will probably quickly forget by the end.

User score (at this moment) is very fair - 8.5-8.6 is good mark for movie I think. The scenes are amazing, I did not like some of the ending parts because of number of characters, but overall I can digest that.
Solid movie and Tom never ceases to amaze

It's no surprise that Mission: Impossible – Fallout sets an example for being the literal pinnacle of the franchise at this point of time. The thing is I was not even aware of a sixth film until I saw a trailer for it.

Honestly, this is one of the few movies I've ever been bored seeing in theaters because it is two and a half hours long and you feel it. You really feel it. This is due to how difficult it is to feel tension in scenes and how long the actionHonestly, this is one of the few movies I've ever been bored seeing in theaters because it is two and a half hours long and you feel it. You really feel it. This is due to how difficult it is to feel tension in scenes and how long the action scenes go on. You might be inclined to think "but I like action so longer action scenes are fine." Well, you'd be wrong because the action isn't even that good and lacks the sort of emotional investment you'd get in a better movie. Basically, the villains never get a moment to talk and become actual characters. The final fight scene should be full of investment due to the two characters who are fighting but they never even speak to each other. The bigger, badder, and supposedly cooler villain doesn't even do anything. He's just boring and his fight scene lacks the emotional weight needed for it to be so long. The movie's climax is immediately followed by another climax where you need the villains to start talking and build their character a bit more if you want to drag on the movie like this. The worst part is that the movie is painfully by the books in the end that the few twists there are can't carry the movie. Also, prepare for stormtrooper tier shooting.
When it comes to characters Benji and Luther feel important in the beginning but then immediately become just sidekicks that stay in background doing nothing. The entire focus is on Ethan and Walker so they kinda do little to nothing most of the time. Ethan is a kinda generic protagonist with little to mention but Walker is more interesting. His character is somewhat fleshed out and the choreographers knew how to make him look a big bruiser with a lot of weight behind all his attacks. His entire look gives him the look of a smart and dangerous man. The love interest is boring. She sucks at shooting things. Moving on. The main villain doesn't do much and ends up doing very little himself and doesn't say anything smart enough to come off as a mastermind. Overall, not a bad movie but painfully average with an added issue of being too long which dips it even lower. Not the worst but nothing special.

an exuberant extravaganza that plays with its audience like a mere 4 year old kid..

Mission Impossible : Fallout

4 Out Of 5

Mission Impossible : Fallout is a plot driven thriller feature that may not be the game changer in the franchise but is deliberately a palindrome to its predecessor in its own edgy and shady way. Ticking for almost 150 minutes, it neatly edits out all its commercial aspects leaving the audience with all the husky bit which is utterly complicated to its core (if lost any focus, the rest of the material may come out as mumbo-jumbo); demanding the attention through it and allowing the audience not a split second to breathe. Having said that, it doesn't suggest in any way that the writing is smart, it basically is all cheat and all tricks, to a point where the audience start questioning everything (the pace too is uneven at some points which is frankly inedible). But this is where, McQuarrie; the writer-director, comes in and smartly makes it all glorifying for the audience to chew in the character's perspective easily. It is rich on technical aspects like breathtaking camera work, stunning production design and alluring visuals. Addition to that, the choreography of all the chase or action sequences is so finely detailed and lethally performed that leaves the audience in an awe of it. With all the buzz of the cast performing their own stunts; especially by Cruise, after a certain point, seems essential to get the audience enchanted into it and calculate the magnitude of the stakes projected in here and connect instantly. The only two reason why the feature fails to enter the major league would be its lack of creativity on the concept and the poetic theme that seems to be the missing puzzle in here. Cruise is confident, mature and has evolved a lot on portraying the character where he may be vulnerable but not weak. Pegg, Cavill, Ferguson and Rhames gets their own stand out moments which they hold on to it decently. Live Locations, exhilarating stunts, throat-slicing politics and Cruise at the heart of it are the high points of this feature that unflinchingly delivers. Mission Impossible : Fallout is an exuberant extravaganza that plays with its audience like a mere 4 year old kid and the wise thing would be to nod along.

And by "it," I mean non-stop thrills, superior set pieces and stunts that exist without equal, and enough fun and surprises to keep you hankering for more. I still feel as though this was missing one or two signature "Mission: Impossible" moments (i.e. the Kremlin hallway scene from "Ghost Protocol" or that server pool deep dive scene from "Rogue Nation"). But even if the brunt of this installment's action came in the form of set pieces I've technically seen before in other movies (a motorcycle chase, a foot chase, a fight in a bathroom, etc.), these are still some of the best attempts at the kind of set pieces in question. A real, solid action movie -- the best of the summer for sure. Expand

Mission Impossible Fallout is a great film.Imagine all the best aspects of the previous MI films,put together ~= MI Fallout.DIspite the fact that Tom Cruise is almost 60 now,he still kills it,the action sequences are insane,really intense,extremely well-made,those scenes we've seen in the trailers,that's nothing.Also,it is a really good looking movie,lensed by the cinematographer from Ex Machina and Annihilation,which is interesting.The cast is terrific,Henry Cavill is really badass,the moustache finally doesnt feel wasted.Rebecca Ferguson is also really good,her character has even more depth than the previous one,Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames once again,excellent.Speaking of flaws,they are very minimal actually,some people may find the film's sometimes over-complicated and a little convoluted,bc the dialogue flows really fast and you have to pay attention to every detail in order to catch up with the story,eventhough this is the longest film in the MI franchise.Also,the film required knowledge of the previous installments, especially 1 and 5,you may find some very cool easters.The previous one was scored by Joe Kramer,which was amazing,this time Lorne Balfe(13 Hours),did an excellent job,very suspenseful,action packed.Overall,Fallout is a near-perfect,very good-looking film with top notch action scenes,great performances,probably the second best MI(Rogue Nation is still the best imo),but they are very very close Expand

Story was good.. Although Grey shades to the characters as we predict.. The mission was so impossible, they made a film on it.. ;) Really, I liked the action sequences very much.. nothing like any other movie.. Some will say it’s The Best Action Film of the year..
Tom Cruise movies are always unique as he does all the stunts himself.. In this movie also, some Dangerous stunts were there but don’t worry, Tom Cruise is there for the rescue.. So fasten your seat belt & enjoy..
~ Tom Cruise, Ethan Hunt.. Sixth movie.. Still looks Fresh & Energetic as of it’s the first M:I.. Salute to the Stunt-man, Cruise..
~ Henry Cavill, Superman, sorry Walker.. So, this was the movie he was shooting for with a mustache which had to be CGIed in Justice League.. Hmmm.. Played well..
~ Ving Rhames, When humanity’s existence is in danger, who do you call.? Luther.. :D
~ Simon Pegg, the Good ‘ol’ Benji.. brings humour to the movie.. Mask is getting in his skin.. Ssshhhh No Spoiler..
~ Rebecca Ferguson, Killer Beauty.. She can kick some A, of course we watched her in Rogue Nation.. this time was none-the-less..
~ Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Mitchelle Monaghan, Wes Bentley, Frederick Schmidt, Alec Baldwin gave support very well..
All in All The Best Entertaining Action Flick for the running year.. So the rating is *drum rolls as always* Dha-dha-dhe-dhe..dha-dha-dhe-dhe.. Awesometacular

Tom Cruise once again pushes himself to the limit and performs amazing stunts which constantly show his skill as an actor in stunts. All the supporting characters are great as per usual but they all really add something to this movie, making that much more great. Henry Cavil, really surprised me in this movie I thought he was so good in the action scenes and in his performance as the character. The villains are good in this movie as well which I think most pervious instalments had problems with. And I have to say it again, the action scenes are just amazing, they are filmed and choreographed so well and someone continue to offer something new to the series that never makes it feel recycled or replied from previous instalments. This film has a more complicated plot than the previous films but that doesn't stop this film from being a fast pasted and extremely entertaining action movie.

Don't wait, just go see it on a big screen.

In addition this chapter has a few laughs, a few tender moments, spectacular mountain scenery not to forget a rarity in a Tom Cruise movie let alone a Mission Impossible movie which is very homoerotic encounter in the bathroom of the Paris Grand Palais.
Tom Cruise gives a more than accomplished performance which has many of the men in the audience shaking their heads at what this 55 year old movie star can do action wise and making it look so easily.
He is aided by returning Mission Impossible characters played by Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Michelle Monaghan, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris with Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby and Henry Cavil added.
“Mission:Impossible—Fallout” is Tom Cruise’s movie and he shows that a 56 year old man can be a hunk, a hero, have a little boy’s smile and make all his action scenes believable as is his belief that the world is a good place.
PS It is only 1 of two ‘action’ movies that I see a year! :O)

However, I was somewhat disappointed there weren't any stealth missions or operations that have become some of the franchises' trademarks as well. On the other hand, the story and stakes in this film are deeper than ever, making it all the more investing, and Cruise, the rest of the cast, and even Henry Cavill all turning in solid performances. Overall, it undeniably hits one of the highest marks in the franchise yet, but the sheer originality and variety that the first film had to offer remains my favorite, but as far as the sequels go, I'd imagine this might be pretty tough to beat.

WOAH!

You know, I normally stay cool and collective when movies with this amount of hype blows up, but f**k it. This freaking lived up to the hype. I mean, wow. Probably one of the best action movies of the year. From start till finish, you’re captivated by the practicality of these action sequences. Never feeling repetitive or boring. Foot chase, car chase, or helicopter chase - It’s going to be awhile for any action movie to top what they did.

This franchise has age like fine wine.

First Things First, the action scenes - where do I begin? Or which scene to talk about. Oh yeah, THE BATHROOM SCENE! Holy sh*t, talk about a white-knuckled hand to hand fight. No dialogue, no music, and no shaky cam whatsoever. Rough and brutal with nothing pretty about it. Also Henry Cavill reloading his arms was the cherry on top. We will come back to Cavill later.

The halo sky dive scene was amazing and nuts, but what’s even more nuts when you find out Tom Cruise did the stunt over 100 times. Along with poor Craig O’Brien, who captured the stunt from the massive IMAX camera. This explains why it was so intense to watch. Of course the helicopter sequence, which could have been 2 hours and 27 minutes long and I wouldn't be bored.

The sound design is really fantastic and really detailed with everything that's going on. You can hear the whoosh when someone throws a punch. Gunshots hitting brick walls or whizz by, brought up the intensity.

Christopher McQuarrie returns as director for the sixth installment and I think he outdid himself. This guy knows how to set up ’the domino’ effect with certain scenes to surprise and make your jaw drop. Masterpiece in film making and shot composition - beautifully done by cinematographer Rob Hardy. While it’s unknown (right now) who will take over directing for the seven movie, but oh boy they got some shoes to fill. I don’t think McQuarrie can top himself. Then again, I said something similar about ‘Rogue Nation’. I will never learn.

And hey, the villains were pretty menacing this time around. A rare thing sometimes in these movies.

Tom Cruise is nearly 60 years old and yet, continues to prove age is just a number. You can hate or criticize Cruise all you want, but you gotta respect someone who puts this much dedication in life threatening situations for the right take. An action star who puts in the hard work. He’s basically killing himself for two hours.

Henry Cavill makes a welcome addition to the franchise as a mustache twirling agent. Cavill is best known for playing superman and made a big name for himself, however the movies themselves failed to meet his success. In this movie, he plays a big bully who isn't afraid to kill on instinct. There’s something deeply unpleasant about him. Every time he walks in frame with this stone cold look adds to the uneasiness. Especially during the fight scenes where Cavill shows off his physicality and fast brutal punches. This is the best I've seen from him. Justice League? Never heard of it.

The team dynamic was excellent and gives plenty of room for character development among the anarchy. Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Rebecca Ferguson are all terrific.

How is the actual story of the film? Well, nothing original just like the previous ones. Elevating on presentation and ties in with events on the other movies - Involving plenty of twist and turns. Some people may have an issue with that which I can understand. The film demands your attention throughout, as references are dropped left and right. The movie builds a lot off the previous film which you have to see or remember about, because if not, then you’re lost.

If I have to pick any issue, it will have to be some of the score. Now don’t get me wrong, I thought the score was good and blends perfectly along with the action scenes, but it did sound familiar. Yeah, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ score. People have already brought this up, so I become more aware when listening. Bit distracting as I had the Every Frame a Printing video on ‘Hollywood Scores & Soundtracks’, in my mind. That’s it really.

Overall rating: Please do yourself a favor and see this on the biggest screen you can. The action, sound work, characters, and acting were all superb. Believe the hype!

It’s not completelyIn a world inundated by franchise films, many of them failing to live up to the hype or even their predecessors, it is truly rare that a sixth movie in a series could be a contender for the of best in the series. It’s not completely unprecedented Star Trek VI is argued by many to be the best as is Revenge of the Sith, but these films are outliers in the malaise of mediocrity that is franchise filmmaking. With this in mind, if someone had told you 22 years ago when the first Mission Impossible film was released that the sixth installment would still be staring Tom Cruise at the age of 56 and that it would be the best in the series, people would have laughed in your face. Yet against all odds, this is exactly what Christopher McQuarrie has pulled off with Fallout. It is truly one of the rare sequels that not only lives up to the hype but surpasses it. Expand

Probably the best mission impossible movie in the series so far. Heck it might actually be one of the best action movies ever.

Story: It's very simple but honestly that is fine. Mission goes bad and could now lead to an even worse event
Probably the best mission impossible movie in the series so far. Heck it might actually be one of the best action movies ever.

Story: It's very simple but honestly that is fine. Mission goes bad and could now lead to an even worse event involving nuclear bombs. It's very generic but the journey itself is full of twist and turns that manages to surprise you and keep you hooked

Characters: Everyone from rogue nation is back (except Jeremy Renner) and it also includes Angela Bassett as the new CIA leader and Henry Cavill as Walker a CIA assassin/agent. All of the returning cast do a great job but props to Ving Rhames as Luther for giving a much different side to him in this film. Henry Cavill is amazing as an counterpart to Tom Cruise Ethan Hunt which makes me feel like the moustache was worth it. Angela Bassett on the other hand was very underutilised in this film which is a shame since she did good with the limited appearance she had. In the film we get to see much more inside the mind of Ethan Hunt and we finally know a lot more about his personality which makes this film feel much more like a personal story which the other Mission Impossible films lack.

Music: It's by Lorne Balfe so of course it's amazing

Action: Some of the best action scenes in the franchise and of course Tom Cruise does it for real which leads to some great camera shots. The bathroom fight scene with Tom and Henry was amazing with terrific choreography. The HALO dive was shot phenomenally , the motorcycle chase sequence was much more tense compared to the previous one and the helicopter scene in general was amazing. While none of the stunts top that of the Dubai scene in "Ghost Protocol" it was still almost as good and there are 3-4 of them in this film.

Overall: This is no doubt one of my favourite movies of this year and is something no one should miss
