Please Note: The Following May Contain Spoilers (But I Tried Hard Not To)
And then there were 6. Hello Mission Impossible: Fallout! Hands down my #1 favourite Mission Impossible film to date, and yes I dare say it, by far one of the best actions movies I have ever seen. I love love loved this movie so damn much and I have and will continue to tell anyone and everyone that will listen that they need to see it. Pro Tip…..watch Rogue Nation first if you haven’t seen it because they are the first of all the films to directly link to each other. Though, because the way the story goes, you could still watch it as a stand alone film if you had never seen any of the others. I would judge you, of course, for watching something out of sequence and not treating yourself to all the other great ones that are available but each to their own…..just go watch it dammit!!
So where do I start with what I loved about this? How about the returning cast….Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhimes, Alec Baldwin (no Jeremey Renner because Avengers which I’m torn about because he was great in this series but also AVENGERS!), Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle (yessss she’s back) Monaghan. Oh but oh Sean Harris is back people….that’s right Solomon Lane in all his evil goodness is gracing the Mission Impossible screens again and I couldn’t be happier about this. As for new people we have Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett & Vanessa Kirby I mean would you look at that cast, just wow!
Then there are the stunts…..I’m trying really hard not to give away any spoilers in this because firstly spoilers are the worst but also GO AND SEE THE MOVIE…..anyway stunts, we have a HALO drop (High Altitude Low Oxygen Skydive), an amazing epic awesome bathroom fight scene, a motorbike chase and a helicopter chase. You are literally on the edge of your seat from the moment the movie starts right through to the end with each stunt just getting better and more amazing and more fun to watch. Top that all off with a brilliant story-line it is hands down a brilliant, fantastic, amazing movie. Yes yes I’ll stop gushing over it now don’t worry.
So until the next Mission comes out, yes I’m already hoping for a #7, I am officially IMF’d out……hahahaha who am I kidding. I could easily watch them all again tomorrow proven by the fact I’m now upgrading my collection to BD/UHD boxsets because I need that ultra-high quality for my next viewing 😊
My Score: 9.5/10
Watch If You Like: Action movies or anything with incredible stunts and story-line, this is definitely the movie for you. Also….Mission Impossible, Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill….the list could go on.
