Tom Cruise stars in the sixth instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise working alongside familiar faces and new foes.
Ethan Hunt returns after taking down Solomon Lane in Rogue Nation, only to face the threat of a potential nuclear fallout at the hands of The Apostles.
All I can say after watching Fallout is that the Mission Impossible movies are now rated above that of any James Bond or Espionage related franchises out there.
Christopher McQuarrie takes the helm again as we jump between London, Paris and Kashmir in this film.
As always, the cinematography is spectacular with beautiful locations and well-choreographed fight scenes.
The Mission Impossible franchise has always set the bar high when it comes to amazing the audience with breathtaking sequences.
Cruise has proven that age is just a number as he looks younger than ever coordinating in some of the best pieces of cinema gold in recent years.
Simon Pegg returns as Benji while Ving Rhames and Rebecca Ferguson reprise their roles as Luther and Ilsa.
Sean Harris also makes a come back as one of the antagonists, Solomon Lane.
The main focus of the IMF is trying to bring down the Apostles in possession of Plutonium cores and under the control of the mysterious John Lark.
We see a hairy Henry Cavill making his debut in the Impossible franchise as CIA agent August Walker.
After the complaints of his CGI moustache removal in 2017’s Justice League, many flocked to theatres to see whether keeping the facial hair was worth the mess made by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon.
With his stocky build and previous experience in action movies, Cavill really held his own during fight scenes inFallout. Every punch he landed felt like a ton of brick hitting someone.
Overall the movie was well thought out in terms of its continuity and delivers where other franchises fail in making a better sequel.
Rating – 8/10
