Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)
Preceeded by: Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015)
If you decide to watch this film, you’ve probably already seen at least a few of the five previous entries in the series. In that case, you’ll know what to expect, and you’ll probably also like what you see in Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Tom Cruise definitely likes what he does, because although he might threaten to outstay his welcome in the part of Ethan Hunt (or as an action-hero in general), his physical work is more impressive than ever and he now also resorts to breaking bones doing his own stunts. Cruise certainly aims to please. Fallout is tighter and more suspenseful than its predecessor, and there are some fresh ideas in here as well, more in the form of a few great action set-pieces than with the storyline. There are also a couple of interesting supporting characters who liven this up, notably villain Solomon Lane from Rogue Nation who is back with a vengeance and played with vigour by Sean Harris. And let’s not forget my Norwegian friend Kristoffer Joner, who has fun with his part as a rogue nuclear weapons expert.
