Mission Impossible Fallout is the sixth film installment of the Mission Impossible franchise, and has so far been met with nothing but rave reviews across the board. The film is directed, written, and produced by Christopher Mcquarrie. Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt returns as lead and producer along with returning cast members starring Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, Ving Rhames as Luther Stickwell, Alec Baldwin as Alan Hunley, and Sean Harris as Solomon Lane. New additional cast members include Henry Cavill as August Walker, Angela Bassett as Erica Sloan, and Vanessa Kirby as the White Widow.
In this installment Ethan Hunt and his IMF team join forces with CIA Director Erica Sloane, and CIA agent August Walker to obtain three plutonium cores from a arms dealer that goes by the name John Lark and a group of terrorists known as the Apostles who plan on setting up a nuclear attack on Vatican, Jerusalem, and Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Ethan and his group race against time to prevent this disaster before it’s too late.
Mission Impossible Fallout is an incredible installment of the franchise. Christopher Mcquirre does an amazing job of putting you right into the scenes with the characters giving you a rush of intensity, and having you experience everything through their eyes in the exact same moment. Everything in this film is done with practical effects. No green screen. The action in the film is made to feel as real as possible. The stunts Tom Cruise is able to pull off in this film is downright incredible, and jaw dropping. It’s not just great. It’s beyond that. It sets a new bar for other action films to follow going forward.
The musical score for this film is done by composer Lorne Balfe, and it is fantastic. Lorne Balfe does an amazing job of actually allowing you to feel out the scene as it’s happening. Not to give away too much spoilers, but there is a scene where Rebecca Ferguson’s character Ilsa Faust follows Ethan Hunt in a park, and the two eventually make eye contact and slowly begin to walk towards each other with no dialogue being shared and as that is happening you’re able to not only see how strong the chemistry between Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson is on screen, but you’re able to feel all the emotions they both are sharing throughout that sequence. No words. Just eye contact and a beautiful score playing in the background. It’s amazing and a work of art. Not only are you able to see all the action taking place in this movie, but thanks to this amazing soundtrack you’re almost put into the mindset of these characters, and you start to have almost the same reactions they’re having as if you’re actually right there with them. That is what movies are all about. A film that can draw you in not just through plot, but through emotions, and can have you engaged the entire time. This is definitely a film that is a must see.
The plot of this film starts off simple, but as it goes on the story gets bigger, and isn’t one note as you may think. All the plot twists are effective and are delivered very well. Even when you think you know what’s going to happen, it’s all done in a way that is still able to keep you shocked the entire time. Nothing about this film is done with half effort. It’s clear as day Tom Cruise, Christopher Mcquirre, and the rest of the cast and crew have gone out of their way to make sure our experience watching this film would be one of the best experiences we ever had, and they not only succeeded in doing that, they went above that, and gave us a film that is able to stand on its own. You don’t need to watch other past installments to enjoy this one, but I recommend you do, so that you can have more of an insight on certain characters. It helps, and makes the movie much more worthwhile. Mission Impossible Fallout is a thrill ride from start to finish. You’ll never want it to end, and it will leave you speechless way before the film is over. This movie is one of the best action films of our time, and everyone should go see it.
