Another film that I got the chance to watch a while back now was ‘Mission Impossible – Fallout’. Right, so a little backstory, this was and still is the only MI movie I’ve seen so far, so if that’s got to do with anything I mention, please do excuse.
So right, sixth in the series, the film sort of revolves around Tom Cruise AKA Ethan Hunt, an IMF special agent. Colossal action sequences from across the globe essentially summarize the film. But of course, considering that this is exactly what is expected from an MI film, the film certainly delivers action.
For about two and a half hour you’ve got some beautiful scenery shown with great cinematography packed with action, impressive stunts, and quite a lot of fun. Here and there, of course, there’s the factor of emotion that’s brought into play and Ethan reminiscence about his old love.
The story plot is very basic and clean. Ethan’s got to get the 3 platinum cores back, no matter what the price to pay.
Christopher McQuarrie, essentially, has managed to direct yet another MI film that fits the bill and delivers what the viewers come in looking for. Cinematography by Rob Hardy stands out with the picturesque locations shown beautifully and perfected with editing by Eddie Hamilton.
Acting by Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris and the entire cast delivers as expected, giving us an almost believable film. That is of course if you ignore the impossible feats and stunts and well, the story.
So, not much of a review but more of a summary. This is yet another typical MI film that I’d say you can definitely go and watch once.
I’d give it a 3/5.
P.S. If you’re Indian, trust me, you’re going to see you’re favorite Indian Actor in that climax sequence in what feels like a very very typical Indian commercial hit from the superstars of the nation! (P.P.S. I say Tamil Actor Vijay in it).
