An explosion rips across the screen, everyone gasps as Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) runs through the smoke carrying a brief case, two enemies chasing closely behind. Shots are fired over and over, will Ethan and his two team members, Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), make it out alive? This question can be asked multiple times throughout the movie “Mission: Impossible-Fallout”. Ethan Hunt and his two team members, as well as Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), work together to fix a decision that Ethan made. This decision may spell the end of 1.7billion people, unless they can pull off the mission impossible. But to save 1.7billion people Ethan and his team have to learn who they can and cannot trust when everyone they’ve ever known and trusted turns on them. Two nuclear bombs loaded with multiple mega tons of destruction will spell the end. With no way to disarm the bombs once remotely triggered, the mission to stop them is impossible. But Ethan, Benji, and Luther always find a way. Will this be the first time the mission is failed? Possibly, you’ll have to buy a ticket to Mission: Impossible- Fallout, to find out.
Mission: Impossible-Fallout is the sixth part to a long and action-packed series. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, it’s not a surprise the movie is action packed with explosions, intense gun standoffs, and on edge scenes. Cruiz and McQuarrie have had a rather long past with hit movies such as “The Mummy”, “The Edge of Tomorrow”, and of course all of the other Mission: Impossible movies. So, it’s no wonder this movie was a great as the rest. The movie stuffs all the action into 2hr 27min, which is on the longer side but it’s worth it. After the beginning/intro there is a rather long stretch of the movie that goes on and on rambling about the setup of the mission. It just seems like too much detail was added into this pocket of neutral action. This pocket may be a good chance to get up, use the bathroom, eat your loud snacks, etc. As the movie is the sixth part to the long chain of Mission: Impossible series, it would be a good idea to catch up with at least the last two movies if you want the main story line to make sense. If you want the entire movie to speak to you clearly, the other five movies should be watched. The movie is rated PG-13 as a result of profanity, violence and gore, nudity, as well as frightening and intense scenes. There are definitely some really gory death scenes that would remind you of “Final Destination”. My suggestion is maybe don’t bring the whole family, stick to adults and older teens. The movie is a great addition to the Mission: Impossible series, I’d highly suggest it if you’re into adventure and action type movies. As mentioned earlier the previous movies will provide some insight on the story line, and the younger kids in the family might have to skip this one. If you choose to see the movie, enjoy.
