Yesterday I went to the cinema to enjoy Mission: Impossible – Fallout. All Mission Impossible fans know that the movies are crazy. You’ll spend all your time glued to your seat with your mouth open staring at the impossible Tom Cruise. He’s in his fifties and kicking ass in the movie. Plus, you get a great villain: the evil Superman. Yup, Supes is just a villain with a nasty attitude. You also get sexy crazy girls, another impossible villain, incredible achievements, and a heart attack. Oh, and lots of laughs. Because, let’s be clear: some stuff is so unbelievable, so fantastical, that you have to laugh.
SPOILERS: this review is not spoiler free. I’m not giving away massively, but in a sense I am. With Mission Impossible, you have to watch the movie to effectively enjoy the ride. Not a single review will make it justice.
Although you know that Supes is the villain, our hero Ethan Hunt doesn’t. Well, at least at the beginning. They give him an impossible mission, and he chooses to save a member of his team instead of retrieving nuclear bombs. The IMF, the agency he works for, is in jeopardy because he failed in his mission. So, the CIA sends an assassin to assist him in preventing a disaster of epic proportions. The killer is our beloved evil Supes, August Walker. He shows having a horrible attitude and no manners at all from the very best beginning. In the beginning, they team up in Paris. They have to find an assassin. But they don’t know his face.
Things go astray, and an MI6 agent friend of Hunt ends up killing the villain. So, Walker and Ethan need to improvise. As usual, Ethan takes the lead and takes the place of the villain hoping no one will notice. Because no one knows who he was, he’s lucky, and they can keep up with the plan.
Their contact wants them to kidnap a terrorist called Solomon Lane as payment for the nuclear heads. However, when they take the guy, things go even more astray. Lane is the leader of The Apostles, a terrorist organization that wants to blow up critical places in the world to create chaos and changes the world. No one knows who all the Apostles are, and as the movie progresses, you see that evil Supes is one of them.
The problem is that the CIA believes Ethan has gone rogue. Walker convinces the CIA feeding them lies, and now Ethan has to clean up all the mess. So, he needs to play the terrorists and the CIA at the same time.
They travel from Paris to London to the middle of nowhere in the frontier of Pakistan and India. The Apostles want to blast two bombs there creating the worst hit in history. They’ll starve a whole nation by cutting and polluting the water. Ethan finds his ex-wife working in the NGO that has their headquarters there. The terrorists have used them to place all the bombs there. And Walker, our evil Supes, is there to make sure the bombs blast. He has a remote with a connector. Ethan needs to disable that remote to save everyone. And, as you can imagine, Walker has it, and we’re going to witness the most epic battle ever. Because this is Mission Impossible, and because Ethan Hunt can do the impossible.
I’ve been a fan of all Mission Impossible movies because they’re so insane they get my butt glued to the seat. Also, Tom Cruise is the best for the franchise. Although I’m not a Tom Cruise fan, I happen to like his action movies. He’s pretty good at making you believe that he’s impossibly strong. So, if you’re in search of some good entertainment, and you don’t mind having your heart racing for two hours, be my guest and watch this film. It’s so dope, you’ll enjoy every second of it. And, you’ll find yourself giggling with some of the impossible scenes.
Have you seen it? What do you think about Supes Super-Moustache?
