Fast, sleek, and fun, Mission: Impossible - Fallout lives up to the "impossible" part of its name by setting yet another high mark for insane set pieces in a franchise full of them.

  • 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?

Audience Reviews for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Director/writer Christopher McQuarrie helms this big Hollywood effort like a pro-boxer in his prime on the attack, and he's not pulling any punches. In a world of big CGI superhero productions he presents a response that effectively embraces old-school actioners, and everyone onscreen gets their shot in the ring. From the streets of Paris to the mountains of Kashmir we get crash, boom, bang, movie style thrills, bigger-than-life...and yet, somehow w/o a connection to it. That's the only drawback. This is a rollicking big fun movie.

Another solid installment of a classic action franchise. Many parts of this film are very traditional are predictable, but this film embodies simple summer blockbuster fun, not anything groundbreaking. It's not my favorite movie franchise, but you know what you're getting, which is a solid action flick, so I will definitely be in line for the next one.

With each new film, the Mission: Impossible franchise keeps finding ways to exhilarate us more and more with insanely amazing action scenes, and in this sixth chapter we are offered a large number of mind-blowing, explosive moments that should be remembered for their audacity.

Another fantastic entry to the best action franchise, putting James Bond films to shame once again. While the beginning is still a little bumpy, by the middle of the movie it is developing into a maelstrom of excitement and wonder about how action scenes are thought of, directed and performed. The Paris chase is already pretty fantastic but the last 30 minutes top it all off, pushing the envelope with every minute and twist. Cruise keeps risking his health for his audience, I know I am on board. Perfect action entertainment.
