Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2/2 Hats)

Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” – Hunt for the Killer People. Conclusion: 9/10. It’s tough to argue against “Mission: Impossible” currently being the best running franchise. Like the previous two installments, the action scenes and practical stunts are spectacular and carry the proper intensity. Tom Cruise shows few signs of aging and it’s obvious that he puts his all into these movies. That spirit shows and only charges up the movie even more. I say it every time, but it bears repeating: no one puts more into their work than Tom Cruise. He is an absolute blast. The story picks up not too long after the last movie ended and the same cast, less Jeremy Renner, is back together again. Renner’s absence is one I missed a bit, and that’s more so a testament to how much I enjoyed what he brought in the previous two films than anything else. However, Henry Cavill and Angela Bassett more than filled his shadow – the two of them playing a shifty CIA agent and his superior. It’s a studded cast and the writing does them every bit of justice. It’s a smart story that explores and develops several of the emotional relationships established in the previous movie. The patented twists and turns are of course present but they’re not overdone or unnecessarily convoluted. Refreshingly, the humor is subtle and quipping is thankfully non-existent. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the cinematography and score, which both are exceptionally tailored to the action sequences. No doubt, “Mission: Impossible” has become a preeminent force in Hollywood, and like it’s star, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. #ActsOfTerrorismOfTheApostles #TwoFace #BelfastAndTheFurious #MissSloan #PlutoniumsNotAPlanet #TheLarkKnight #FalloutBoys #WhatsDoneIsDunn #CloudBenign

I wasn’t super excited that they were releasing another Mission Impossible movie. Is this 6 now? I thought they’d probably run out of good ideas, but I was wrong. Tom Cruise continues to demonstrate why he is an elite actor and worth every penny. This movie had some amazing scenes most notably the bathroom fight scene. It was so intense and incredibly well done. It featured many of the signature MI moves including the “good guy disguised as a bad guy move” that made for some nice twists. The movie kept pushing to see how much they could get away with before you started rolling your eyes. They reached that point at the very end with some major eye-rolly action, but overall I had very few complaints. It was definitely worth seeing in theaters and I’d highly recommend seeing it on the big screen.
