Mission Impossible Fallout review:
Ethan and his friends are trapped in an alley. Benji is scared and worried for his life. Ethan’s words “I won’t let anything happen to you Benji”. The opening scene says it all. Ethan the man who values people than his mission yet again lands himself in trouble. Off course this mission is not a choice.
It’s been 22 years since the first Mission Impossible film hit the theatres, Tom Cruise hasn’t changed. He is ready to risk his life for the entertainment of his fans and movie lovers. Every time he takes the risk meter a notch above the earlier one. Be it hanging the cliff, leaping between buildings, boarding a flying helicopter he is the man of action.
Fallout is the recent addition to Tom Cruise’s best ever franchise. Right from the word go Fallout is a treat. The movie never wasted a minute to suit up. The 148 minutes of entertainment is rich in action, marvel in stunts and brilliant in execution.
Unlike other MI movies Fallout is a direct sequel to its predecessor Rough Nation. Off course this is a first time that a director has directed two movies in this franchise. Though the movie is a sequel, one doesn’t need to know the story of Rough Nation to watch Fallout, the movie is clear in implying the plot even to someone new to the franchise.
When Christopher McQuarrie was announced the director of Fallout, it surprised everyone, as this is the first time a director has directed two movies in Mission Impossible franchise. But, he proved to be the perfect man to direct Fallout. His direction has made Fallout the best in the franchise (According to my opinion).
Technically the movie is brilliant, especially the locations where the stunts were performed, like the climax in Kashmir (Though not mentioned in the movie). Fallout stands out the best in the franchise. Music by Lorne Balfe is too good during stunts, his music has elevated the stunts a step higher through his music. Rob Hardy’s camera speaks for itself. His work during the stunt scenes are exceptional.
Above all the casting is perfect as a bullet. From Ving Rhames to Alec Baldwin, the cast has done justification to their roles. Roping Henry Cavil as Walker is the high point of the movie. Though we miss his action till the climax, he adds perfect flavour to the cast.
Mission Impossible Fallout is the best in the franchise so far. Don’t miss the action packed 148 minutes. The best action movie of the year.
