Henry Hill’s review published on Letterboxd:
“There cannot be peace without first, a great suffering. The greater the suffering, the greater the peace. The end you’ve always feared is coming, and the blood will be on your hands.”
Mission Impossible Fallout is a movie I haven’t seen in years. Don’t know why it took me so long to revisit it but i’m so glad I did. This was such a fun rewatch. Easily bumped it to five stars, it’s just so good. Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie created a masterpiece of an action film. The action is non stop and we’ll choreographed, there are some incredible stunt work thanks to Cruise himself, and the story is easy to follow but epic in scale. There’s so many movie parts to the story but you never get lost. The movie moves at breakneck speed and they always keep your attention. Cruise nails his role and action but bringing in Superman himself added so much to the movie. That bathroom fight has to be one of my favorite hand to hand combat fight scenes.
The returning cast is just as good though. I love that we got a returning cast in each film since Ghost Protocol and they always have great chemistry. The movie also looks insanely good for an action film. It’s a slick modern production with constantly changing vibrant settings make for beautiful backdrops for the action taking place. The cinematographer deserves just as much credit for this film. My only nitpick is the twist was predictable but it didn’t hinder my enjoyment at all. Mission Impossible Fallout is a quick movie action spectacle that has everything I love from the genre. The action is badass, it looks amazing, the score is the best of the franchise, and I love all of these characters. Never been more excited for a seventh film in a franchise.
