Mission: Impossible – Fallout

After re-watching the entire Mission: Impossible series last week, I was primed to watch Fallout, especially because of the incredible critical acclaim it was getting. I was not disappointed, and I’m so glad I went to see it in IMAX, because the jaw-dropping stunts and action sequences were an absolute joy to see on a screen that big. It’s maybe too early to say where I would rank it with the other films, but it’s certainly tops for me (equal to the first one and third one), and has the best and most exciting action sequences of the series. And man, no one runs in a movie like Tom Cruise, you gotta hand that to him. Exciting, thrilling, great characters, beautiful and complex set pieces to take in, this had it all. I also really liked how it tied into so many story threads from the previous movies. It really does wrap things up nicely, but at the same time, seeing as how good this was, I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing Cruise do a few more of these.
