Mission Impossible: Fallout is Best in Tom Cruise Franchise

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Tom Cruise is the true embodiment of a real movie star.  A star, who on name and face recognition, makes audiences excited to see their films no matter what the subject.  Very few are able to command that type of box office cachet and Cruise is definitely at the top of the list.

Mission Impossible: Fallout is by far the best of the franchise, which now includes six films.  Unable to catch my breath from all the thrilling fight scenes, death-defying stunts and just overall adrenaline ride, I can tell you unequivocably that you’ll most definitely need a bubble bath, cocktail, spa, spin class or whatever relaxes you after this one. It was fantabulous!!!!

There is not a weak link the all-star cast that includes Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Henry Cavill, Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan and of course, Tom Cruise.   Sean Harris is perfection as Solomon Lane and Vanessa Kirby is giving me Kim Bassinger “LA Confidential” realness as the White Widow, both making villains look deliciously enticing.

Each and every actor leaves no stone unturned and neither does director Christopher McQuarrie, Cinematographer Rob Hardy and Editor Eddie Hamilton. The film is shot like a beautiful ad for a vacation location and is mesmerizing to view.  Maybe because it is shot primarily in Paris, France.

There are literally no words for how Tom Cruise is STILL doing stunts like helicopter and rock climbing stunts after all these years.  He gets mad respect from me on all levels.

Mission Impossible: Fallout will take your breath away and leave you in an adrenaline coma for days.  Is is worth it?  Hell yeah it is and you can catch it when it drops into a theatre near you on July 27th.
