The Mission Impossible series is one that many are well versed in. Now, the sixth instalment in the series was released recently. This series is known for the action-adventures of Ethan Hunt, who has been played consistently by Tom Cruise since the first film. This film starts off with the Ethan getting new instructions via a tape recorder that would be commonly seen decades ago – which was a pleasant and smooth reference from the original series that the franchise has taken inspiration from. While the movies are popular, it is undeniable that one of the strange appeals is the simple ridiculousness of the missions that can take some people out of the film while also drawing others in.
Mission Impossible: Fallout Highly Anticipated
While the film was highly anticipated by fans and movie-goers who just enjoys actions – the plot, on one hand, is a tad bit on the nonsensical side while the actual action itself, such as the stream of explosions and fight seems were eye-catching but nothing that stands out with what has been seen with the previous films. Though even with the small handful of faults, the movie did deliver an engaging spectacle of Tom Cruise portrayal of Ethan Hunt with the skillfully performed stunts that can be likened to be more reality-adjacent than overly realistic.
Once Mission Impossible: Fallout begins with Ethan Hunt brooding over his past mistakes, mainly the guilt relating to the divorce with his wife – while waiting to receive new mission instructions from his agency, which is conveniently named Impossible Mission Force. Though he is soon tasked with the exciting and dangerous job of finding and taking down the leader of a terrorist group who also doubles as his longstanding enemy, Solomon Lane.
While the mission itself is filled with mystery and a serious flare, a mistake lands Ethan a more lighthearted partner to help complete the assignment – Walker, who is played by Henry Cavill. His role gives the film a bit more humour that counteracts the seriousness and gave the movie-goes a few chuckles before slapping them with more thrills. This tripped with helicopter scenes, cliffhangers, and gunfights that are not light on the bloody side is one of the main reasons why the film is doing so well since its recent release days ago.
Though what makes Mission Impossible: Fallout such a hit is the well-done action scenes and plot that has the perfect mix of reality as well as impossible. Plus, the film has reminiscent of a James Bond movie, just with a more modern and humorous touch. The scenery which is set in London, Kashmir, and Paris gives the movie a foreign and familiar feeling that can catch the eyes of anyone who plans on watching. While Mission Impossible pulls out some of the classic Hollywood cheesiness – the brashness and action is a good source of entertainment for anyone who doesn’t mind watching a 2hr and 30-minute film that is filled with new laughs and old references from the franchise.
