Mission: Impossible - Fallout Reviews

August 7, 2018
Mission: Impossible - Fallout is an unrelentingly consistent action movie, with not a single sequence wasted before the next big stunt.
July 30, 2018
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?
July 30, 2018
You can scoff at the antics and still be swept away.
July 27, 2018
The most thrilling, entertaining, stand-on-your-feet-this-is-bananas blockbuster in recent memory.

Bless this franchise, we're truly not worthy.

The McDonald's hamburger of action movies. Well, maybe that's not entirely fair. Maybe the Wendy's.

As summer franchise movies go, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is near the top of the heap... If the film has one overriding flaw, it's that it's about 20 minutes too long.

July 27, 2018
The sixth movie in the Mission: Impossible series is a truly maximalist work of art. The plot is stupid but the stunts are terrifying, the tension vibratory, the muscles rippling. In short, it's a masterpiece.
July 27, 2018
Say what you will about "Avengers: Infinity War," but at least its story took risks. "Fallout" offers a highly predictable form of fun -- although it's still fun.

Mission: Impossible has become the blue-chip action franchise of the 21st century. Choose to accept it.
July 26, 2018
Fallout is thrilling in a way that is out of sync with blockbuster fashions. It doesn't try for any sort of political resonance, and while it's a more direct sequel than past installments, there's still nothing you really need to know in advance.
July 26, 2018
Plenty of pleasures apart from pure action turn up in the film, which, like the previous episode, "Rogue Nation," was written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

Mission : Impossible-Fallout knocks itself out to keep you awake and entertained. The result is a film that won't make a dent in cinema history but, with an ebullient gusto, it is impossible to resist.

Whether you're a hardcore fan of these films or not, there's more than enough wow factor to leave a lasting impression.

"Mission: Impossible - Fallout" is absolutely, positively everything you want in a superspy action adventure with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Manages to score a place as one of the best M:I outings yet.

July 26, 2018
With his partner, returning director-writer Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise delivers all the above in the ridiculously entertaining Fallout, his sixth outing as Ethan Hunt.
July 26, 2018
It is jaw-dropping. See it on the biggest screen you can find.

This is one of the most entertaining movies of the summer.

July 26, 2018
Cruise is an unhinged stickman, outrunning the devil, the aging process, time itself. He will outrun us all.
July 26, 2018
At its best, an exercise in pure action-movie propulsion and an essay in how to get from Point A to Point B in the most ingenious and exhausting way imaginable.

A breathlessly exciting action spectacular: the blockbuster spy thriller as sustained endorphin rush.

July 25, 2018
It's a strong, engaging spy thriller with plenty of action and a convoluted storyline.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 25, 2018
The movie is propelled by action scenes that transmit a little something about the characters while nudging the story forward, much like the song-and-dance numbers in a musical.
July 25, 2018
Mission: Impossible-Fallout doubles as a manifesto for the ridiculous spy thriller, pitting Hunt's boundless optimism against Walker's cold-blooded realism.
July 25, 2018
It's got that finely-tuned, perfect blend of every technical element that it takes to make a great action film, all in service of a fantastic script and anchored by great action performances to not just work within the genre but to transcend it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
July 25, 2018
"Fallout" plays like a kind of "Mission: Impossible" greatest-hits album. If you like the franchise, you'll love it. If you don't ... well, you still might.

July 25, 2018
Cruise once again shows that being 56-years-old is no barrier to being an action hero while the movie itself proves that being a summer blockbuster cash cow that doesn't veer wildly from the unexpected doesn't have to be uninspired.

Even its most irritating parts don't fatally damage a whole that works amazingly well, despite its own excesses.

July 24, 2018
While younger, more generic action stars pop up every year in paint-by-numbers, explosion-heavy drudgery, it's Cruise who remains top gun.

"Mission: Impossible - Fallout" is definitely everything we expected, and more. You might need to go lie down afterward, in a good way.

July 24, 2018
this is the kind of action filmmaking that proves to be an effective antidote for superhero fatigue, with a sense of realism baked into every shot.

July 24, 2018
With its combination of spycraft, intrigue and insane physicality, "Fallout" again proves "Mission: Impossible" is the gold standard for international action-adventure and that Cruise is this generation's James Bond.

Tom Cruise is still at the top of his game - not to mention the top a Paris skyscraper and a snow-capped mountain in Kashmir.
July 23, 2018
A cinematic centrifuge of acrobatic stunt work, breakneck chases and immersive action, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is a perfectly calibrated piece of filmmaking that plays the viewer like a drum right from the start.
July 23, 2018
Fallout... isn't the best of the bunch (that would be number four, Brad Bird's Ghost Protocol), but it's easily the second-best and certainly the Cruise-iest, meaning it's nearly as entertaining as it is strenuous. Which is a mighty high bar!
July 23, 2018
It's not just "Impossible," it's irresistible.
July 18, 2018
Cruise commits to an insane degree, and in mainstream entertainment terms, 'Fallout' is up there with his best work.

McQuarrie piles on the mayhem like a boss. His "M:I" films exude class, intelligent expense and giddy expansiveness in equal measure.

July 17, 2018
Mission: Impossible - Fallout is that sequel in spades. It elevates the franchise to next-level status - and then some.
July 16, 2018
A dream come true for action junkies. At 56, and so not looking it, Tom Cruise is in the running, jumping, climbing, diving, flipping, fighting shape of his life. Off-the-charts spectacular.

The thriller version of comfort film. It's something we can return to with complete confidence in what we're getting into.
July 12, 2018
Cruise is back to the chase, a star on a mission, and summer suddenly feels fun again.

Here is Cruise, 56, performing some of the most impressive feats of derring-do ever captured on screen.

It delivers. More than that, it's become the rare franchise that seems to just get better, twistier, and more deliriously fun with each installment.

Fallout's pleasures are gratifyingly straightforward, direct without being dumbed-down. It's a meat-and-potatoes banquet, one that doesn't need to be interesting to be satisfying.
July 12, 2018
Not since Fury Road have such viscerally practical effects been put to better use by such deliriously impractical people.

Here, with everything that he's ever cared about on the line, Hunt proves why he's summer's most valuable action hero.
July 12, 2018
The action here represents the mainstream cinema's version of extreme sports and these guys have staked their claim at the summit.
