"MOVE over Bond, you’re being upstaged. With heart-thumping chills and adrenaline-pumping thrills, the latest Mission Impossible is almost perfect...
...The franchise’s commitment to practical effects and stunning real-life locations, rather than copiously using CGI and green screen like its contemporaries, isn’t some movie star’s vanity project. It creates a real sense of jeopardy for the audience. You’re constantly catching your breath."

"God damn that movie was intense!"
"Every high-speed chase was sandwiched between Tom Cruise leaping across rooftops or casually dropping out of a helicopter, or just free-climbing a skyscraper....
The story-line itself is also really well executed and the cinematography is great too which just goes to show despite being a big beefy blockbuster you and still do something really well made and considered"

"Three female characters play a role in Fallout alongside Ilsa and Julia. There’s Erica Sloan (Angela Bassett), the decisive new head of the CIA, who wants to put the brakes on the Impossible Mission Force; there is a character known as the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby), a wealthy philanthropist with a shady agenda; and there is, fleetingly, a French police officer (Alix Benezech), whose unexpected intervention in one of Hunt’s operations provides him with a significant dilemma.
“They all own the scenes they’re in, not Ethan Hunt,” McQuarrie says. “The thing I’m most proud of in his movie is that they don’t exist to serve Ethan’s agenda.”"

"...One of Fallout’s strengths is its ability to weave in many of the storylines from previous films to create depth but not confusion (you don’t need to have seen all five earlier films to piece the narrative together).
Rebecca Ferguson, reprising her role as M16 agent Isla Faust, again stands out — this character deserves her own franchise..."

"There’s a wow-first mentality at the heart of both the movie’s love of high-octane antics and McQuarrie’s handling of his leading man; however Fallout is also a character and performance-driven effort in a perhaps surprisingly satisfying manner. Cruise makes Hunt seem flesh-and-blood physically and emotionally, even when he also feels superhuman, in what’s become his career-defining role. Ferguson and Harris demonstrate not just why they were the highlights of Rogue Nation, but why they’re back this time around."

"Yes, Cruise jumps out of planes, scales cliff edges and partakes in nail-biting chase scenes, but the action sequences feel sparkling fresh and take us to new heights of daring. Highlights include an extraordinary motorbike chase sequence through the streets of Paris and a chilling denouement in a designer white men's room. The parachute landing on the ornate glass dome roof of the Grand Palais is anything but ordinary, but nothing tops the spectacle of the Kashmir sequences amid the snowy peaks. The helicopter chase and its ramifications will have you checking your Fitbit for your pulse rate."
