Mission: Impossible - Fallout
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Seems others are raving about the action, which I found long, repetitive fill for a flimsy plot. No surprises either -- both mask uses were well telegraphed as was the identity of Lark from the moment he appeared on screen. Was so excited to see this film, and then (yawn) disappointed.

Completely baffled by both the RT and audience ratings for this clunker. Okay, thumbs up form the effects of making it look like Margot Robbie was skating. But this style (interviews, faux reality) doesn't ever work for me. The language, added to story, creates no sympathy for the main character or those that surround her -- making them all appear as stupid, trashy and despicable people (actually people are God's children, and should be loved; but these people represent debased humanity). Cannot beleive I sat and watched this entire movie; glad it wasn't a paying seat in a theater.

Delightful, insightful, relevant movie with people you care about played by talented actors including the lead/writer/director. Watched twice in row and imagine seeing several times again, sharing with family and friends, and quoting from extensively. And yes, the slap in the face to Stephanie Meyer is loud and hilarious (because it is so true!)

Watched with high expectations, given the Oscar buzz. 99% RT rating? Fresh insights? About check the box with cliches? Entertaining? Bored -- kept waiting for something to happen, for an ending with resolution. As this was not fantasy, realism -- zilch! No message, no uplift and no purpose to watch this film. Like seeing Saoirse Ronan movies? This made me hate her and her character. Totally love watching Greta Gerwig and was excited to see her supposed directoral masterpiece. Badly directed? No. but nothing special. Thoroughly disappointed.
