  • Ironically, the most entertaining element of all may be the star's advancing age; Cruise, well into his 50s, scores numerous laughs as the increasingly confused CIA agent, leaping into one spectacular stunt after another and then wishing he hadn't.

  • The thought crosses the mind: Where can it go from here? The answer is pretty much everywhere. It keeps on going and going, following one exciting sequence with another and then another.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout is an unrelentingly consistent action movie, with not a single sequence wasted before the next big stunt.

  • With the Resident Evil saga apparently complete and no further Mad Max adventures on the immediate horizon, Mission: Impossible must qualify as the best Hollywood action series now going.

  • Cruise will never win an Oscar for playing Hunt, but what he does in Mission: Impossible - Fallout is surely at least as taxing as, say, Leonardo DiCaprio's role in The Revenant, with the added obligation of making it look like fun.

    Jul 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The problem with constructing a movie as one long making-of sequence is that, if it's a movie as inert as this one, it doesn't so much answer the question "How was it made?" as pose another one altogether: Why?

    Action moviemaking at its best. One of the more impressive aspects (of several) is the filmmaker's use of locations. This MI actually has me looking forward to the next installment of the franchise.

    Fallout is a great action film and you would be crazy to attempt another film in the MI series after this. McQuarrie has just signed on for 7 and 8, which is a bad move in my opinion, good for McQuarrie in the money sense, but bad to attempt more after Rogue Nation and Fallout. Cruise once again brings us insane stunt work and some of these will have you looking away. You have to give it to him, he can really entertain. This sequel is a great follow-up to Rogue Nation, a direct sequel and it delivers on the action, but not a good ending. I was hoping they might return to a more espionage style film for the sequels, but that won't be the case with McQuarrie. This was a nice closure to number 3, and it leaves the door open for more development. MI can only fail from here, that is the sad reality, but McQuarrie might throw us another two film curve ball. 19/01/2019.

    They just keep getting better, but they never get good.
