There are priceless moments in one’s life where a plate of ravioli, a glass of Sangiovese, and neorealist cinematic masterpieces by Vittorio De Sica and Luchino Visconti mean the world.
This isn’t one of them moments. After watching “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”, I read some mixed reviews which got me thinking… What the actual f@!# is wrong with some people?! Well, it’s a long list and it’s beside the point. Is it a classic film? No. Will one encounter Shakespearean acting? Nope. In a production wrapped in 161 shooting days, let me shed some light on what you’ll encounter:
- Phenomenal action by water, land, and air with every possible vehicle available.
- Dynamic hand-to-hand combats.
- Tom Cruise doing all of his stunts himself and all actors delivering stupendous performances.
- Rebecca Ferguson being as jaw-dropping as always.
- Twists and turns with everyone switching sides.
- Amazingly unnoticeable VFX.
Trust that writer/director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise have collaborated on 9 films together. It is a duo that works and gets results. Tom Cruise characterized it as an epic personal tale with enormous emotional stakes for the characters.
So, it’s one of them moments…
