Fallout was directed Christopher McQuarrie and stars Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Fergunson and Sean Harris. After a mission gone wrong, Ethan Hunt and his IMF team are against the clock to correct their mistakes.
Being the 6th movie of a franchise, it could easily fall into the trap of a lazy story telling and generic action sequences. But i’m here to tell you this movie does not. I’m amazed how after 6 movies, this franchise still manages to make unique movies like this.
Going to start talking about the action scenes. Completely amazing, purposefully, well thought out and well choreographed action sequences. This is what Fallout gives us, there was a scene, where Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and Walker (Henri Cavill) are fighting someone in a bathroom. The punches feel so real, the sequences was awesome, and brutal. The cinematography was amazing, more than what i was expecting from a Mission: Impossible movie. And that is because they use practical effects instead of CGI or green screen. That makes the experience as real as possible.
Performances, were great from everyone. Not only Tom Cruise, with amazing acting and stunts, but the supporting cast did a great job. Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames were incredible as always, Rabecca Ferguson also did a great job. And this has to be Henry Cavill’s best performance. He was great in the action scenes and his character felt intimidating like it should be.
Talking about the story is where i have my first minor issue with this movie. It seems a bit recycled, and to make it completely original after 6 movies, is a bit of a stretch. The big twist is a bit obvious, you can really see it coming. But this doesn’t make the story less mesmerizing, the script was great and the director did a great work into moving the story along in such a way that every scene, every shot and every line of dialogue is extremely important, because it really is.
The characters are great too. Ethan Hunt is incredibly charming, and the length he goes to not kill innocent people just makes him more of a compelling character. The villains where great, although i did want to see more from the main villain, as a character.
This movie is gonna be in a lot of peoples top lists for 2018, i’m 100% sure it’s gonna be on my top movie list for 2018, and you don’t really want to miss, what i can safely say, is one of the best action movies i’ve ever watched.
