Mission Impossible or Missing in Action?
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is back for his 6th outing as the agent out to save the world.
This time it’s nuclear. A cell has hold of three plutonium cores which are ready to be popped inside a bomb and detonated causing carnage.
It’s up to Hunt and his team (Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg) to hunt down an elusive terrorist behind the plot and bring them down before they can set the bombs off.
The team are joined by an MI6 agent (Henry Cavill, complete with THAT moustache which was CGI’d out of Justice League) and there’s a few familiar faces that pop up along the way.
I mentioned Cavill’s moustache then for a good reason. Remember the disappointment that was Justice League? There needed to be extensive reshoots for the movie, but Henry Cavill had moved onto filming Mission Impossible where he had to keep and maintain a moustache. He was allowed to go back to film the JL reshoot as long as he didn’t have a shave…so they CGI’d his moustache out to hilarious effect…
But back to Fallout.
I’m going to say it….strongest entry in the entire Mission Impossible series. It’s big and loud throughout, exactly what is needed. I saw it on IMAX 3D and it genuinely benefited from the sheer size and sound of the IMAX screen. The 3D is wonderful and definitely one I would highly recommend donning the glasses for.
Cruise doing his own stunts is phenomenal, the story is pretty good, every single set piece from a bathroom fight to Parisian car/bike chases are absolutely nailed.
Its so much fun.
