Mission: Impossible - Fallout is in theaters on July 27th, 2018.

Ethan Hunt is back & better than ever… Mission Impossible: Fallout was AWESOME! Tom Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt, secret agent of the IMF on his latest mission to save the world. Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg, the clear fan favorites of the franchise, also reprise their roles on Hunt’s team, along with Rebecca Ferguson back as Ilsa Faust. Since we’re all still talking about #MustacheGate, we finally get to see Henry Cavill and THE mustache meant for this movie. He sort of joins the team as CIA assassin August Walker, mainly because both the CIA and the IMF are out to reclaim stolen plutonium from a terrorist group that could lead to yet another pending nuclear attack on the world. Angela Bassett (the queen of stealing all scenes) plays Walker’s boss, the head of the CIA who isn’t drinking the IMF Kool Aid. She sends Walker, her best agent out to shadow the IMF mission.

If you’re a Mission Impossible fan (minus MI2 because that was just awful), you love the crazy gadgets, the endless action, the almost impossible storylines, but most importantly, you love the facemasks! Fallout has ALL of those things and more. It fits perfectly in the franchise, with missions and secret meetings across the globe, and twisty turns throughout the plot. As usual, you spend the movie trying to figure out who’s good, who’s bad and who’s got the drop on Ethan Hunt and his team (the answer to that is NO ONE). Can Ethan Hunt and crew save the world…again?

I don’t want to spoil anything for all you MI fans out there, so I’ll just say, get ready for some awesome surprises, endless action – endless shots of Tom Cruise running, and some amazing stunts. This franchise is showing no signs of slowing down, and as long as Tom Cruise is at the helm, I’ll be strapping in with some popcorn and watching the madness unfold. My only complaint was that I wish Jeremy Renner had been able to reprise his role (he had Avengers scheduling conflicts) – so hopefully he’s back for the next one. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to RUN out to theaters and see this ASAP!

Rating: 4.8 out of 5
