Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) - Official Trailer
Tom Cruise and Co. deliver one of the best action movies in recent memory with incredible action sequences, an entertaining story, and fun characters that will keep you engaged for most, if not all, of your time in the theater.
"The Mission: Impossible franchise never disappoints, and Fallout is no exception."
The action and plot were both entertaining and well thought out, although at times the film felt a bit flat. In addition, Alec Baldwin’s acting was mediocre, and despite the Secretary’s importance to both the franchise and Fallout, the character didn’t do much. On the other hand, Henry Cavill definitely impressed me - it was refreshing to see him succeed in a role that’s very different from the clean-shaved superheroes we usually see him play. Overall, the interesting settings, seat-gripping action scenes, plot twists that weren’t over the top, and depth of plot prompt me to give this movie an A-, but some moments of over-acting and cheesiness keep me from awarding an A+. I probably wouldn’t recommend this film if you’re really not a fan of action films, but if you’re in the mood for an entertaining movie that will keep you interested without making you think too hard, MI Fallout is definitely a great choice for this summer.
"A thoroughly entertaining movie"
B+: Tom Cruise is ganna kill himself in one of these movies some day,but until then he’s among the best stunt/actors working. Check it out for a fun action movie in theaters, but watch 👻 Protocol for the good kush.
"a pleasant movie that made me feel the urge to snag myself a Fallout poster by the theater entrance so I could hang it up on my wall
Tom Cruise has captivated us with his role as Ethan Hunt along with his phenomenal stunt work yet again. Fallout is definitely the adrenaline rush we needed after following Ghost Protocol. While this film had an exciting dynamic storyline that tugs on your chest and few moderate plot twists, I expected a bit more to come out of some of the new roles that were introduced. Henry Cavill was quite impressive (ESPECIALLY during that one scene) but I would have enjoyed more scenes with the characters played by Vanessa Kirby and Angela Bassett. This startling, action-packed motion picture goes out with a tremendous bang and leaves me wondering whether another sequel awaits or if this is truly the end of a sensational franchise. Overall, it was a pleasant movie that made me feel the urge to snag myself a Fallout poster by the theater entrance so I could hang it up on my wall. To all the people I know who doubted this film, jokes on you!
"Same old, same old"
pros: good action scenes (tom cruises’s stunts!) & some funny moments
cons: again fails in the department of representation. four female characters and the VAST majority of, if not all, background agents are still male? right. part of this movie literally takes place in south asia yet there is not a single south asian with a speaking role that i can recall.
"Tom Cruise, please play Ethan Hunt for as long as your legs will allow"
In the latest installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, Christopher McQuarrie delivers one of the best action films in years. Tom Cruise outdoes his last effort as Ethan Hunt, as he delivers amazing stunt work that leads to top of the line chase sequences (both foot and vehicle), fight scenes, and breathtaking stunts.
"MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT is the best action film of 2018."
Some people claim that FALLOUT is one of the greatest action films of all time. I personally don’t think that is the case. The action sequences in FALLOUT alone are in the ranks as some of the best shown on the silver screen, but the film overall doesn’t.
"I really enjoyed this film"
This is the first Mission Impossible film that I have seen. There hasn’t been a solid action film in a while so this film was rather refreshing. The stunts were thrilling and I was at the edge of my seat for a large portion of the movie. I also appreciated the Mission Impossible theme subtly throughout the film. It was a nice touch. I look forward to watching the other Mission Impossible films
"The fact that the 6th film in this movie series is the best may be the most impossible mission of them all"
Mission: Impossible - Fallout sees Tom Cruise return as Ethan Hunt to do battle against clandestine forces that seek to something something something, do some bad things. Ultimately, the plot to Fallout services as an excuse to deliver the best action sequences of this year. These spectacles are certainly the biggest draw, but the more intrigue-filled, double-crosses remain some of the tensest the series has seen.
"Shatters all expectations with game changing action"
Remember that feeling you had while watching THE DARK KNIGHT that this was transcendent blockbuster entertainment? Yeah, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT (written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie) is here to bring back that feeling and crush all expectations with a blockbuster that fully delivers in spades.
3.5/5: Mission: Impossible Fallout was one of those movies where you can either choose to turn your brain off and take in the incredible number of action pieces that are filmed in such an engaging way or invest into a somewhat complicated plot with enough turns that keep the movie interesting but may leave some viewers confused.
"Low bar, but one of the most consistent franchises right now"
What I am impressed with is this film’s effort. A lot of films, even with big budgets, limit the scope of their action because too many filmmakers see action set pieces simply as genre requirements rather than opportunities for creativity and exploration.
"Full of incredible action sequences, but fails to live up to the 4th or 5th installments"
Very few moments on film have caused my heart to beat quite as the Burj Khalifa climbing scene from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Four years later, Rogue Nation put forth a valiant effort in trying to one up its predecessors and, while I think it came close, I would still place Ghost Protocol at the top of my MI ranking. Which brings me to this summer's Mission Impossible: Fallout, a film that is full of incredible action sequences but fails to live up to the fourth and fifth installments that came before it.
“These action scenes made me FALLOUT of my chair”
Fantastic action scenes that were very well directed with a relatively engaging plot pushes this movie past mediocre performances. I wish it ended a little different but it doesn’t change my grade of an 8/10
"I can never get tired of the tried and true tropes of the Mission Impossible series"
As classic as James Bond is, the crazy stunts and high stakes action continually keeps you on the edge of your seat regardless of how "predictable" a spy movie can be. Tom Cruise and his team are not only entertaining, but they made me believe they are trying to save the day and not just another action flick hero. A fantastic addition to an outstanding series, and I highly recommend even to those weary of staple movie series like this one.
"Great movie to see with friends or even by yourself"
Mission Impossible: Fallout brings in some of the best action scenes I've ever seen put to film (I may be 19 but I've seen a lot of action movies, trust me). My first concern about this film was that I hadn't seen all the Mission Impossible films, so I might be lost on some of the characters. Thankfully it's not too much of an issue, the characters that are in the film have their motivations clearly given and the plot and nicely written so no confusion occurred, and hardly any backstory was used. All the action scenes were well shot and were expertly crafted, looking 100% AWESOME, especially with the Helicopter chase scene during the final act which was phenomenal and worth the price of admission alone. The most I can say about the film was that it was fun, very entertaining, little downtime between each set piece, and each one was enthralling. The movie also did some narrative 180s that I was really happy that it did because they threw me for a loop at the direction the film was going.
Now to be pretentious: I love how these movies are so charming in the midst of the action. I also love how unglamorous the stunts can be--a reflection of the realism that the movies try to reflect (thematically, not necessarily with plot.) Anywho, I bought into the film completely until Henry Cavill's not-so-subtle revelation of character (a writing issue more than anything). On top of that was Alec Baldwin. Thankfully, the final act restored my faith. Even in laughable moments (and I did laugh), it seemed to add only to the charm. However, despite the long action shots and stunts, the most notable achievement in the latest Mission Impossible has to be its score.
