Mission Impossible: Fallout - 3.5 Stars

Mission Impossible is a fun franchise that just keeps upping the anti on its incredible stunts.

Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, along with some familiar allies, race against time after a mission gone wrong.

From a story point of view this film has leaned heavily into its TV show roots. The clichés are all there and are incredibly fun. The “twist” is exceptionally predictable, but the fun nature of the film prevents it from being a monotonous watch. Tom Cruise is excellent as Ethan and the crazy stunts in this film include crashing helicopters (that Cruise actually flew) and jumping across buildings. Henry Cavill is sadly not up to par acting wise, but his physicality suits his role well. Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Rebeccas Ferguson and Ving Rhames all play their returning characters with ease.

Overall a fun, mindless adventure film - exactly what you’d expect!

3.5 Stars
