Mission Impossible Fallout is an American action spy film written, produced and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. The cast includes Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin.
Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt receives an information about Plutonium weapons loaded to create massive destructions, and he accepts the impossible mission as always and how he saves the world forms the remaining story.
Tom Cruise is high on energy and has taken truck load of efforts to make things real, be it the stunts or his reactions, everything looks lively. Henry Cavill is super impressive as the menacing villain on the other side, but the place where his character flips is inappropriate and it was an highly predictable moment.
Supporting artists have done a great job and they have also got enough scope to prove their point. Ving Rhames scores in a fruitful emotional scene towards the end. Simon Pegg hits it out of the park with couple facial twists. Whereas Rebecca Ferguson has made a very strong re-entry to the franchise with a powerful role and decent acting.
Other small characters were also fine, but Michelle Monaghan’s presence seemed artificial and the dreams which Tom Cruise gets before her portion might also be the reason for it. Few comedies do work out through dialogues, the serious ones are also sensible and delivers the rightful informations.
Christopher McQuarrie’s vision is outstanding, making it a bit dark and realistic is an extremely clever decision taken by his team. His writing has a lot of depth and detailing with respect to the script and the concept that is dealt. Screenplay is gripping and manages to hold us at most of the areas, the commercial quotient is well etched and hence there’s no shortage for entertainment and excitement during the watch.
Kudos to the production managers for getting permission to shoot in certain places, real locations elevate the experience. Technology usage has been done well and some modern ideas have been nicely brought in to give goosebumps to the audience. But the cinematic liberty has taken for granted in some portions to move forward the script.
Couple of places miss out on logic during the action mode, or it can also be said as beyond the believability metre. Answers for some question were kept silent just to increase the curiosity. Downside, the base takes time to firm up, there are little dull moments in the first hour and also forceful trouble moments exist in one or two places to show up heroism.
Lorne Balfe’s music is amazing, his phenomenal work gets easily identified in every scene. Rob Hardy’s camera work is absolutely epic, the amount of pressure he has transformed to the audience is remarkable. Sameway, the editor Eddie Hamilton has struck gold with his job, his cuts are merely flawless. Visual effects team has achieved something great, nowhere VFX and realism could be differentiated in this movie.
The intensity of the action choreography is on the top most level. Be it the raw fights or the breathtaking bike chase sequences or the nail-biting helicopter scene, everything is perfectly clubbed. The sound effect was at its best during all the action moments. Indian censor board’s work is found to be silly, as they have chopped off several second-long dialogues and visuals that lead up to Kashmir where the climax actually takes place as per the story.
The twists penned along with the script and the way they have been executed on screen are refreshing to view. Filmmaker and team have smartly incorporated certain new-age ideas to attract the fans. But on the whole, 150mins gives a bit lengthy feel and some usual template elements pop-out.
Verdict :An intriguing content driven action thriller loaded with Tom Cruise and some crazy stunts
