Ethan Hunt is back, and the IMF must join forces with CIA agent August Walker to prevent a nuclear disaster. The Apostles plan to detonate three plutonium cores on the Vatican, Jerusalem, Mecca and Saudi Arabia, Ethan and Co need to find them before the fallout begins.
What is the ungodly fascination with Tom Cruise running? Every film he’s in! And this film is no different, but this time, I’ve got to admit that age might be catching up to him a little bit – his run doesn’t look as natural as it has done before. Anywho, enough of him, onto the important stuff.
Mission Impossible – Fallout is a what it says on the tin. It’s a very strong action film that offers an excellent plot and is filled with punches, guns, a plot twist and a win at the very very last second. If it’s not a close call, is it even a fun or exciting action film?
Henry Cavill’s character, August, is brutal. Acting as the tank of the group, he’s really putting those Superman workouts to good use as he throws people through mirrors, sinks gives Cruise a run for his money as movie front runner.
As usual, Simon Pegg, is ever the genius and provides the comedic relief throughout the film – giving you the chance to relax a bit between almost life threatening situations. The plot twist involving him is extremely well done and is somewhat unpredictable in comparison to some of the others that are scattered throughout the film.
Thinking back on it, there are a lot of surprises throughout the film, enough to keep you guessing on what’s going to happen next – but they act more as a development for Ethan and the story.
Fallout is a great action film, regardless of whether you’ve seen the others or not (I haven’t seen the last two and it still made perfect sense!). If you’re in the mood for some mindless violence, some very extra stunts and a film filled with a very strong cast, then Mission Impossible is definitely worth a watch.
