Title: Mission: Impossible - Fallout
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Starring: Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Henry Cavill, Sean Harris, Alec Baldwin, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby
As seemingly as Tom Cruise appears to age backwards, the Mission: Impossible series has aged well. Very well. With each passing entry, the series seems to get better and better. Mission: Impossible - Fallout, is no different. This may be the strongest entry in the franchise yet. Packed with dynamic action, a quick-moving plot, colorful characters, and edge-of-your-seat thrills, Fallout isn't just one of the best films of the summer. Mission: Impossible - Fallout, IS the best film of the summer. This is what summer movies are supposed to be. Tom Cruise, proves once again, that age isn't a factor. What he's willing to put his body through for our mere enjoyment on screen, is something to witness. There's action scenes in here, that had me gawking and that's hard to do. The surrounding cast, are all great and add to the film nicely. The Mustache- I mean Henry Cavill, does a solid job here. It's nice to see him out of his cape for a brief time. While the story is taught and doesn't meander much, the film's length can be a weakness. However, McQuarrie, keeps the film moving and it never really slows down. This film flows very nicely and with a heavy packed plot, that's a real feat. Mission: Imposible - Fallout, is a fantastic addition to the franchise. I wish I could go back to my younger self watching the first two films in the series, to encourage me to stick it out a few entries. Things got better. And better still.
