The action sequences in Fallout are impressive, well-choreographed physical feats. You know, because it’s a Tom Cruise movie. Yet there was one moment at the beginning in the scene with the plutonium that felt too obvious as an action movie plot device – due to the way it was executed. It was unfortunately a moment that made me feel that little bit less enthused about the rest of the film.
As the story progressed, I was adequately engaged but whilst also simultaneously concluding that I probably need to give this franchise a break. That way when I return in some years, it will all feel kind of fresh and new again.
Even though I definitely had more fun with Rogue Nation, Fallout is still a good movie. It’s just unfortunate that for me personally, more than any specific action sequence or scene, the most memorable thing about director Christopher McQuarrie’s film is that it helped me realise what a truly great face Rebecca Ferguson actually has. A totally random observation, I know. Yet I’m quite sure, thoroughly accurate.
Watch Mission Impossible – Fallout because it’s good. Who knows, it may even be your favourite.
Happy Film Loving
