Cue the Lalo Schifrin theme music. “Mission Impossible” is back.
The name within the sixth installment, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, is “Fallout.” Therefore far the fallout is just good.
Early mentions (full comments are still embargoed) on Twitter are superior to excellent. Virtually everybody in the press who saw the show tonight or yesterday has raved about it. (I’m going to notice it in the near future, as a consequence of American Airlines screwing up my flight home from Detroit today.)
David Ehrlich from Indie Wire: “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT is definitely the perfect action movie since Fury Road. just god-level stuff. the top praise I can make a movie: That’s not me even mad it’s making me late to Radiohead.”
Bilge Ebiri, Village Gloice: “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT. This movie is sex.”
Mike Ryan of Uproxx: “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT would be the rare true direct sequel during this series. Therefore we educate yourself on the most about Ethan Hunt. It is the SKYFALL of M:I movies. Also, yes, it’s insanely exhilarating.”
So it feels like Paramount incorporates a big hit, that’s nice because they stood a bad, bad year a year ago and get been anticipating this. Also best for Tom Cruise who struck out with “The Mummy” is actually “American Made,” along with the second “Jack Reacher” movie in 2016.
Cruise currently is pretty much relying on the “Mission Impossible” franchise to maintain him relevant. His only movies that leave $100 million are classified as the “MI” films. The remaining are strike outs. Cruise has provided by means of getting awards. His next release is definitely the “Top Gun” sequel.
