Review: Mission:Impossible-Fallout (2018)

During the 1990s there was a trend in Hollywood that consisted of making feature films based on old television shows. Some were successful, others not so much. We got a great fucking movie like “The Fugitive”

But we also got movies like “McHale’s Navy” starring “The still talkin about Roseanne after all these years” Tom Arnold

& this other thing

In the summer of 1996 it was Tom Cruise’s turn to headline one of these movies and his vehicle was “Mission: Impossible”.

A lot has changed in the 22 years since the first “Mission: Impossible” movie came out but at the same time other things have remained the same. I’m still the same asshole I was 22 years ago & Tom Cruise is still making movies in which he’s running like a madman trying to prevent the world from ending.

Tom Cruise’s latest motion picture is the  sixth installment of the “Mission:Impossible” franchise, “Mission: Impossible- Fallout”. Surprisingly this series in 22 years has not replaced it’s main character, has not being remade , rebooted  or refucked. If we were to go by history, this franchise should have ran out of gas by now and we should have been on the “Let’s reboot the franchise with an all female cast playing characters that work for the “Nasty Women Government Agency” who are working tirelessly to bring down those Evil Sexists Corporate Bastards.”

But instead the sixth installment of this franchise is the best action movie I’ve seen all year. “Mission: Impossible- Fallout” kicks fucking ass!

 

Once again Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt & this time around Hunt leads his  IMF team who are forced to work with CIA assassin August Walker played by Henry Cavill to find 3 plutonium cores that went missing at the beginning of the movie on a undercover assignment gone wrong. The story is a continuation mainly of the previous “Mission: Impossible” film that was directed by the only returning director of the franchise Christopher McQuarrie. Cruise & McQuarrie have definitely become an amazing duo cause I have enjoyed all their collaborations.

This film is an incredibly well-made action picture. From the car chases, to the helicopter chase, to the foot chase to the fight sequences, this film delivers. This film works because McQuarrie still thankfully has not been infected completely by the “Shaky-Cam Virus” & him & Cruise insist on doing a lot of great stunts the old-fashioned way, meaning doing them for real and not shoot an entire action movie on a studio in front of a green screen.

And I must give Tom Cruise all the respect in the world. The guy is doing stunts that make you question his sanity but not his balls. We often make fun of guys here on this site ( cough cough Bruce Willis cough cough) for looking completely uninterested and bored on extended cameos in their so-called films. That is not to say that we don’t know that this is a job to the actors and they don’t enjoy getting paid, our critique falls on how they go about it mostly. If you did a project for the money fine, but at least use the money as motivation to put some effort into the fucking thing. Truthfully I don’t recall watching a Tom Cruise movie in which Tom Cruise was not trying. Sure some are better than others but that’s why he has avoided being in films that were considered complete disasters because the guy puts a lot of effort into his work and I respect that as a fan.

This is a film that deserves to be seen on the big screen I happened to watch it in IMAX and it was well worth the money. The “Mission : Impossible” franchise in my book is 6 out of 6 and even though this chapter might be hard to top I say bring on the next.

9/10

    I don’t know how McQuarrie does it, but he did it – there’s genuine craft to the action sequences and I must applaud McQuarrie and Cruise by sticking to their guns and showing em all how it’s done. Miles better than Rogue Nation – hell it’s the best one in my book.
    Great review Mucho, I can’t wait to see this again in an IMAX hall

      Thanx my friend. I’m glad Cruise broke the tradition of having different directors for each movie & brought McQuarrie back.They definitely have a great working relationship & it shows. That Helicopter chase was great in IMAX. Definitely worth it

      Rogue nation was also good as well as Jack Reacher that Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie also did together.

    It amazes me how far Tom Cruise has come between making mission impossible in the 90s to now. And they haven’t let us down. They’re all good. Thank goodness Tom Cruise didn’t get politically liberal unlike Alec Baldwin and Jim Carrey and the rest of the Hollywood slime, or sellout to direct to video shit unlike his pal John Travolta and Nicolas Cage cause that would make him lose his fans. Tom Cruise has never failed to amaze me with any action movie except the Mummy which we can agree was lousy, and deserved better than that. I think other than mission impossible, and top gun sequels, he should do another Jack Reacher sequel and maybe a Expendables sequel or ask to appear in a John Wick movie with Keanu Reeves. Other than that, I love the mission impossible movies.

    I liked the car chases in Paris, and I haven’t seen good movie car chases in Paris since Bourne identity, and ronin. Great car chase from both Christopher mcquarrie and Tom Cruise, along with the Morocco car chase in mission impossible 5 and the Chevrolet chevelle car chase in Jack Reacher.

    I rate this along with the sequels and the original on a scale of 1-10 a ten being awesome in every way shape or form. This is how the Expendables franchise should be like this. Stallone should watch these movies to get an idea.

    Great action movie from both Tom Cruise and Christopher mcquarrie besides mission impossible 5 rogue nation and Jack Reacher. Great sequel to the mission impossible franchise. Hope they make more. Didn’t understand why Julia got remarried to someone else even though she was married to Ethan since the third and you didn’t see much of her in the fourth till the very end when it was revealed that her supposed death was faked by ethan and she didn’t appear in the fifth one. But now I know, she still believes in her former husband Ethan Hunt and she’s happy doing what she’s doing.

      It’s address very well when Ving Rhames is talking to the other chick Rebecca Ferguson. He explains to her what went on between them. How he didn’t want his enemies to go after her because of him like they did in chapter 3 and she felt that if something bad happened in the world is because Ethan was with her and not saving the world like he wanted to or needed to.

      in the end they decided to call it off and every now and again she sends him a signal to let him know she’s alright. She did seem happy and at least the dude was not an asshole..lol

            It really is a cool movie. rare for a franchise to be on it’s 6th chapter & that is doing what is doing. I think you’ll dig it too.

            Careful while moving your things dont get misplaced or broken😡

            When men move sometimes the women in our lives take advantage of the situation to get rid of the manly things they don’t like cuz according to them it doesn’t go with their bullshit decor and they blame the “misplacement” on the movers..lol

    I knew this was going to be fantastic after The Mummy disappointed last summer, since it meant Cruise would feel additional pressure to deliver.

    And he definitely did. For my money, this series has now overtaken Bond as the best modern spy franchise. Not only has it become the new standard for practical stunts, but it also boasts several qualities 007 has been trying to achieve for years such as good continuity, an ensemble cast of likeable heroes, and strong female characters.

    Not to mention consistency. It’s slightly ironic that the most divisive entry in Mission Impossible is also the only one where Ethan Hunt just goes on a mission. He isn’t disavowed or suspected or being a terrorist in Mission Impossible 2, yet that’s the one most people cite as the lone misfire. I think it still works as a slick, over-the-top action flick though and agree this franchise is now 6 for 6.

    Hopefully the success of Fallout will result in Cruise and McQuarrie returning to the franchise sooner rather than later.
