Mission Impossible- Fallout (Yeah)
OPENS: July 27, 2018 LENGTH: 2 hours, 27 minutes
One thing you must understand about Mission Impossible- Fallout: the star of this movie is Tom Cruise. He's the Big Fish in the Big Pond. All of the other actors are smaller fish of various sizes. There are:
- 4 loyal teammates
- 2 beautiful love interests
- 2 surly bosses
- a bunch of scary villains
And, a partridge in a pear tree. Just kidding.
Once I accepted that Mission Impossible- Fallout is first and foremost a vehicle for Tom Cruise, it was much easier to be happy about the roles that Ving Rhames and Angela Bassett played.
Ving Rhames is one of the 4 teammates, and Angela Bassett is one of the bosses. They both play supporting roles to Tom, but I have no real problem with either character. Ving is funny as hell, and can I ask you one question?
How sharp is Angela Bassett?!?!?
Also, check out English actor Joey Ansah, who plays a henchman.
This is an action movie with lots of edge-of-your-seat chases (car, boat, helicopter), incredible explosions and fighting (hand-to-hand and with weapons).
Mission Impossible- Fallout is fun, fast and violent.
It that's your thing, go see it.
