The best intentions often come back to haunt you. Mission: Impossible Fallout finds Ethan Hunt and his IMF team along with some familiar allies in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.
Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.
Like every Mission: Impossible movie, the sequel always tops the stunt department. This latest Ethan Hunt adventure is easily the best not just by the death defying stunts but also the way many of the chase scenes are filmed.
It’s an interesting new “close up” style that makes you feel you’re running along with the character. Watching this in IMAX format will give you the best experience because don’t forget, there are some amazing cities that feature in this film and serve as a perfect canvas for this already highly rated installment of the franchise.
What I like about the most recent installments of Mission: Impossible is that there is now a sense of consistency in supporting cast members. Ving Rhames has been involved in all the movies but now Simon Pegg is a familiar face and of course since the 3rd installment, there’s been a nice continuation of the story that involves Ethans ex-wife played by Michelle Monaghan.
Henry Cavill is the newest addition to the team but this Superman is not quite the blue boy scout hat we are used to. Rebecca Ferguson also returns to develop her character a little more.
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars.
I’ve already said this is the best of the lot. The pace, stunts and a slightly more thrilling theme to it’s soundtrack makes this Mission: Impossible the more exciting ride so far.
