Mission Impossible - Fallout - Tom Cruise on the bike

Mission Impossible – Fallout – Tom Cruise on the bike

I had the opportunity to watch the premiere of Mission Impossible – Fallout.  Thanks to my friend, he arranged the Tickets for the premiere at the Festival Center at #NovoCinemas.

The Indestructible, ageless Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise)

Mission Impossible – Fallout – Tom Cruise in police chase

As this is the Sixth Mission Impossible movie of the series, Tom Cruise is old but young at heart and action like a young fighter. He is indestructible and his bones are like made of Vibranium, he falls from a high-speed chase bike accident, gets up and walks away, Police can’t catch as if they are waiting for him to get up and run but for the camera, they are always close by.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) hangs from the helicopter, falls from it and lands on the payload which at least 100meters hanging below but nothing happens to him and again he has the strength to climb into the helicopter and fight with the pilot and a passenger. Takes over the Helicopter (of course been Ethan Hunt, he knows to fly the Helicopter too). His Helicopter gets hit by bullets and all the warning panel lights up in the cockpit but just like him, the helicopter also flys till it takes down the villain’s copter. But even after helicopters crash and break into pieces nothing happens to Ethan Hunt. Hangs on the cliff and saves the millions of lives as usual at 1 second to destruction.

Now about the Movie . . .

Mission Impossible - Fallout - Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise & Rebecca Ferguson

Mission Impossible – Fallout – Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise & Rebecca Ferguson

“Fallout” brings back the bad-guy Syndicate but with a more extremist terrorist splinter group that wants to nab three spheres of plutonium, ostensibly bringing the world to its knees. Ethan and his core IMF (Impossible Mission Force) team – cool hack master Luther (Ving Rhames) and high-strung tech specialist Benji (Simon Pegg) – are tasked with getting the plutonium themselves, but when Ethan literally takes his eyes off the ball to help a pal, the villains run off with radioactive treasure.

Mission Impossible - Fallout - Angela Bassett & Henry Cavill

Mission Impossible – Fallout – Angela Bassett & Henry Cavill

The CIA has some serious trust issues with the IMF, a new CIA chief (Angela Bassett) sticks her own guy (Henry Cavill) with the crew. The moustached Cavill is more comfortable tearing into the biggest movie star of the past 35 years than he is donning Superman’s Man of Steel cape. Meanwhile, former foe Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson) has her own agenda with Solomon Lane (Sean Harris).

Mission Impossible - Fallout - Vanessa Kirby as White Widow

Mission Impossible – Fallout – Vanessa Kirby as White Widow

Ethan Hunt has to recover the 3 Plutonium, he meets a broker White Widow (Vanessa Kirby) who wants Ethan Hunt to get another job done which is breaking out of Solomon Lane (Sean Harris). Very good stunts and car and bike chase but as I have said earlier police can’t catch Ethan Hunt. The Lane is rescued and he escapes and Ethan hunt pursues after them to Kashmir (India)

The bad guys decide to use the 2 Plutonium bombs in the northern area of kashmir ( I am not sure they shot any shots in Kashmir or nearby as the mountains and people – extras didn’t make it look like Kashmir but who cares . . )

My take on the movie

Mission Impossible - Fallout - Tom Cruise hanging on the cliff

Mission Impossible – Fallout – Tom Cruise hanging on the cliff

Mission Impossible – Fallout movie is a good movie to watch and there are very few moments which can surprise you or get an effect like the Mission Impossible – 1. Director Christopher McQuarrie has done a great job with Tom Cruise and got his best out of him. I hope script could have been more strong and create interesting moments. If you remove Tom Cruise from the movie then it just another movie. The movie ending was predictable and especially the 15 mins Plutonium bomb timer. it was quite long compared to the action and scenes in the movie.

If there is going to be Mission Impossible 7 or 8, Tom Cruise should take a step back and bring in some young blood and should be more shown as the prime operative of the team like classic James Bond – Sean Connery (Stylish, classic, only fight when action required).
