Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

Mission: Impossible - Fallout is an exercise of constant daring, reaching incredible levels of quality in the saga: it has sequences that will pass to the History of Cinema due to its complexity and its visual finishing. We will highlight several that could be seen in part in the trailers: the fight in the bathrooms, the chase through the streets of Paris, the HALO jump, the pursuit through the rooftops and, of course, the confrontation of the helicopters. There is not a single frame that defrauds the viewer because the film gives everything the viewer expects and more.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), field operations agent for the IMF, an elite espionage agency charged with carrying out dangerous international missions, faces new threats against the clock after a mission goes awry.

Its final objective will be to deactivate two nuclear bombs with which Solomon Lane intends to tear down the world system and establish anarchy. In addition to his usual collaborators: Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) and Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin), we will see the MI6 spy Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) and meet a new director of the CIA (Angela Bassett) and his man his man on the ground.

At the plot level, Mission: Impossible - Secret Nation was a more polished, more serious and credible film, while Fallout is more driven by the sense of spectacle and humor. The good news is that it also works wonderfully, albeit in a different register. The plot of espionage is quite tricky, with many script turns that will require all possible attention from the audience to not get lost. Yes there is a continuity regarding other issues that do a lot of good for the new Mission: Impossible.

One of them is the villain Solomon Lane, played wonderfully by Sean Harris and the voluble Ilsa Faust to which the charismatic Rebecca Ferguson gives life. This sixth installment, as happened in the previous one, is very choral and all the characters have their moment of glory either emotionally or functionally: Benji, Luther, Alan, Julia ... But there is also glorious additions such as Henry Cavill as August Walker who brings new layers to the narrative.

In my opinion, Time flies by watching Mission: Impossible - Fallout and this is due in large part to a montage that does not give up once the movie is sung (we must admit that the beginning is somewhat looser than usual) and a lot of action scenes perfectly rehearsed and filmed with care, giving as much importance to photography as to the excellent soundtrack.

This review was posted on the IMDB page

Throughout the film, the best phrase was the previous one (title). This was much better because they continued their story created in the Phantom Protocol that is not to use the theory of accepting missions and creating all the new movies that never connect with the previous ones (it happened in the first three films). One who watches the movie had some exciting two and a half hours. Many close encounters, the same villain (other than Henry Cavil), funny scenes with Benji, etc.

On the IMDB page, it gets a score of 8.3 / 10 in its ranking, plus you can read some reviews made by fans in the following link:
