Mission: Impossible - Fallout

My pop and I were able to take in Mission: Impossible - Fallout when it came out and we both really enjoyed the movie.  It is a ton of action and while it comes in at 2 hours and 27 minutes it really didn't feel like it.  Haven't seen a Mission Impossible movie in years (I think this is my third overall) and I thought they did a great job.  All the different players, the action, the plot, they all worked for me.  My understanding is they either referenced or used many elements from previous installments of the franchise but I was never confused or wondering what I missed.  Tom Cruise is of course the star and deservedly so.  He not only acted well but also looked great in all the action scenes.  Reading about how many of his own stunts he does, it is amazing.  Just a fun movie to watch.  If this kind of action flick is your thing don't hesitate to give it a try.  
I loved Vanessa Kirby as The White Widow.


  1. Super jealous. I haven't seen a movie with my pops in years. Next time I'm in Vegas, I'm gonna see if he wants to go.

    1. It is a fairly rare treat for us as well so I definitely enjoy it when we get the chance.
