On a dangerous assignment to recover stolen plutonium, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) chooses to save his team over completing the mission, allowing nuclear weapons to fall into the hands of a deadly network of highly-skilled operatives intent on destroying civilization. Now, with the world at risk, Ethan and his IMF team (Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson) are forced to become reluctant partners with a hard-hitting CIA agent (Henry Cavill) as they race against time to stop the nuclear fallout. There’s never been a threat more destructive, stunts so jaw-dropping or a mission so impossible!
Some Missions Are Not A Choice. When an IMF mission ends badly, the world is faced with dire consequences. As Ethan Hunt takes it upon himself to fulfill his original briefing, the CIA begin to question his loyalty and his motives. The IMF team find themselves in a race against time, hunted by assassins while trying to prevent a global catastrophe.. Mission: Impossible - Fallout Wiki
Same old plot and storyline, same action nonsense that is highly unbelievable, and using an old man (Cruise) as the lead character is just plain wrong. Cruise is far past the prime of an action hero. Bring in the fresh actors and actresses who would make for more believable action heroes and/or heroines. Cruise was great in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s, but now he looks like a senior citizen who could not possibly do any of the action-based scenes as a real hero would. Time to hang up your spurs on action movies, Cruise. I hope you do not waste more good movie time trying to surpass your has-been, wannabe-young, dream of being youthful again. Sorry, but Father Time keeps on a Truckin’ and you cannot beat him buddy. Cheers
Smart, suspenseful, top notch acting, impressive stunts, ambitious set pieces and locations around the world. This is how all blockbuster thrillers should aspire to.
I thought this was the best installment in awhile. Fun to watch.
I liked previous two MI movies very much. They are packed with action and awesome stunts, good humour and interesting locations. They are entertaining. MI - Fallout is not. I mean it still has a lot of action and filming crew did a very good job making this movie, but now it just tries to be too serious and fails all the time. Too predictable, too stupid and lots of cliches. Don't be fooled by its high rating, in my opinion it's not worh it.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Amazing action, great story line for those who actually can follow the amazing story line, and did I say amazing action? Un freaking believable! Tom Cruise is the greatest action star ever, not only he does the death defying stunts but he is also a great actor. The complete package! With great supporting cast, especially Henry Cavill who doesn’t just chew the scenery but chomps on it. Making the movie pure joy to watch! This is my generation’s James Bond and so much more. No Marvel blue screen CGI here. It’s pure adrenaline rushed stunts done on the spot. I watched it twice in one day! Can’t wait for the next installment!
As you’d expect from a Tom Cruise movie, it’s an amazing, action packed movie, and unlike the other two that I’ve watched, the plot was actually somewhat understandable this time! Best one yet, that’s for sure! Super cool to the max!
This is definitely one you watch for the action rather than anything else. The plot elements are very confusing. Glad I only paid 99¢. Hopefully the franchise will now stop so the producers can move onto something more interesting and creative.
Tom Cruise always delivers. Loved every minute of it!
Film seems to be an over-filtered, complicated, grandiose 2+ hour ad for BMW. Complete with overacting, stilted dialogue and over-choreographed action. And like most ads, zero emotional impact and major plot holes.
This film had a lot of lengthy action and chase scenes, but lacked much of what makes the Mission: Impossible franchise unique. It lacked the team feel of the prior movies, and did not make much use of the tech and complex deception scenarios that are the hallmark of the movies. The numerous chase sequences were longer than they needed to be, and the plot became convoluted around who was the real villain. While better than the disasterous Mission: Impossible 3, it falls short of the other films in the series.
Tired MI packaging, scatterbrained plot, and pretty much a stunt vehicle with lengthy fight scenes. Quite boring.
Just plain fun.
This movie is very re watchable! in my opinion
The incredible Tom Cruise makes this thrilling work of massive effort and creativity, so worth watching it over and over !! Brilliant 🙌🙌🙌
Pas compliqué...juste une question me vient à l’esprit: Quand est-ce le prochain?
A complete waste of time, lots of social effects but no story lie and bad acting!!
This is by far my faveorite MI movie with crazy practical stunts done by Tom Cruise in front of a multitude of stunning backdrops with fantastic camera work. If National geographic had a baby with Die Hard this would be it. Well done!
Have I become jaded? I give this one a 3 1/2 stars. It just did not keep me intensely interested during the entire movie. I can't put my finger on what it is that left me wanting. I guess I'll give myself some time and I will try again in a few months. Maybe...
No logic inside the story telling, but good acting
This is the best mission impossible since the 2nd one all those years ago. Would have been nice to see Paula Patton join the cast again. Maybe the next one.
Is it possible that that’s the best one yet? Thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end.
The best MIP yet, Tom Cruise gets better with age and great cast as always with strong female lead-Something for everyone!
Omg reading the reviews below for the people who are giving this film a 1 star you are delusional and pathetic don’t have taste in movies. This movie was one of the best action movies I’ve seen 5stars from me definitely one of Tom cruises best film
97% on Rotten Tomtoes...86% on Metacritic...7.9/10 on IMDb. WOW, money buys anyone these days. Really liked the last one, but this is a stinker - too long, too much pointless dialog, too many peripheral characters getting too much screentime. I could go on, but its late. I even started wrapping xmas presents near the end. Great action, but a deeply flawed movie. You'll watch it anyway, but i paid 7 bucks to rent, please do yourself a favour and wait until its on Netflix. As for Rotten Tomatoes/Metacritic/IMDb...shame on the lot of you.
I actually want my money back. This movie borders on stupidity. Who writes this stuff? I won’t be watching anymore MI movies as they just have run out of ideas.
do not waste your money, this was rubbish
As extension of an old sixties franchise it is what it is, so enjoy! BUT At some stage someone will have to tell ageless the Tom C (coz it's showing with all the other characters) that it is ok to let go and his acting career now lies in a different direction. He doesnt have to be so real in is acting or I forsee an expensive fatality on the set. Tom also needs to give the premise and material it's own life as this film definitely is Tomcentric and the deep dive into the psycho-emotional mental state of Ethan (possibly Tom himself) is a bit...hm. Still the villians are suitably nasty (they all look like Beardy home brewers from Seattle) and there is more than enough impossibility as befits the Title.
A true action movie, bring on the next one!
The cast felt like thay were just going through the motions. It did not engage me at any level really.
Strap yourself in for one helluva ride! So many twists and turns that you’ll fall out of your seat otherwise! In this movie, we see a more believable Ethan Hunt I think than in previous MI movies.
One of the best action movies ever made!
