That bit in Mission: Impossible - Fallout where Henry Cavill reloads his arms in the middle of a frenzied punch-up? That’s also Christopher McQuarrie, on the first day of production, preparing to lay waste to whatever memory you have of Hollywood action filmmaking in the last couple of years.... More

Fallout is a resounding anomaly: the dizzying high of a 20-year-old blockbuster franchise coming into its own at film #6 — and it’s a glorious thing. McQuarrie is the only director in the franchise who’s returned for a second go, and at this point, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Rogue Nation, then a series’ best, now looks like a warm-up to this wild 2.5 hour whirling dervish of stunt-craft delirium that frequently dangles Tom Cruise over the precipice of death with seemingly reckless glee.

If the terrorist/nuclear bomb plot is somewhat recycled, Fallout contains a fair share of subtle surprises to neutralise its more familiar trappings. Like, who would have thought Ving Rhames, generally relegated to computer-whiz sidekick, would deliver the most sincere and emotional moment the series has ever had? There’s a compelling, sharply defined arc for Rebecca Ferguson, whose slippery operative Ilsa Faust continues to be a fierce match for Cruise. Cavill’s pain-in-the-ass CIA babysitter is a terrific addition, and Simon Pegg gets to do shit!

Cruise, the dauntless pro that he is, looks hilariously at home with each death-defying spectacle, of which the finale, a breakneck helicopter chase optimised for vertiginous IMAX perfection, is surely one for the ages. And with Fallout, the rubber mask has finally come off Ethan Hunt: he no longer feels like an action-hero cypher with a charismatic smile, but a genuine beacon of goodness whom we can always count on.Hide

It's half an hour too long but, hell, it delivers the expected goods with unexpected confidence and impact. The over-abundance of (mostly-familiar) plot still rarely slows things down, and the action sequences are so good you might have forgiven it being even longer yet. Convoluted hokum that any sensible grownup will laugh at, of course (with political subtext best ignored completely), but even a sensible grownup will have to admit it's also lots of thrilling fun.

BY PercyM superstar

Its acton-packed, thrilling and explosive; entertaining from start to finish with its fast-pace and suspenseful plot.

How to make the perfect action film.

BY Karalou superstar

Really enjoyed this movie. While I had seen the other Mission Impossibles, I was expecting it to be entertaining but I didn't expect it to be so much more. The action scenes were amazing, and either love him or hate him, there is no denying that Tom Cruise is amazing in this and all the action scenes he does himself, like the helicopter scene. Would highly recommend this anyone who wants to be entertained.

Finally a quality Mission so good that the Bond Movies start to place 2nd. I don't think I have ever given a movie 5 stars so easily. Take all the great past Mission scenes, add a gripping story and just go and see it, the bigger the screen, the more bang for your buck. The minus to this movie is it will likely show us how boring our lives are compared to Tom's daily work schedule.

The Press Reviews

  • The action here represents the mainstream cinema's version of extreme sports and these guys have staked their claim at the summit. Full Review

  • Crashes and petrolhead spills are what this franchise is reasonably expected to deliver. And this is what it cheerfully does. Full Review

  • OK, McQuarrie may not have De Palma's sweat-drop precision, John Woo's craziness or the impish wit of Brad Bird, but his mastery of logistics here is easily sufficient to make it the blockbuster of the summer. Full Review

  • McQuarrie's film is the most fun you're likely to have at the movies this season, a riot mounted with precision, a melee in which every punch and crunch is considered. Full Review

  • Here, with everything that he's ever cared about on the line, Hunt proves why he's summer's most valuable action hero. Full Review

  • Ageless, riveting and seemingly unstoppable, Tom Cruise remains a force of nature. "Fallout" delivers a near-exhausting amount of stupendous action sequences paired with deft character drama and the requisite life-or-death stakes. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review
