Hey everybody! Been a little while since I posted a review. I'd been thinking about the reviews in general and wanted to try a new format. Maybe it'll be the new hip thing that all the kids will get into. Anyways, here's the plan–I'm going to attempt a TL;DR review. To anyone that isn't aware of the term, TL;DR is internet speak for "too long; didn't read" and is a summation of what's going on in a thread, etc. I don't know how much time people actually dedicate to reading the lengthy reviews on here, so I thought I'd work with that and make the reviews cleaner, crisper, and less weighty. Feel free to drop a line on Twitter (@timtheyeti or @borderlessyeti) about the change. We'll see how it goes!
Another impossible mission, this time involving the fallout (see what I did there) of the previous entry into the MI series.
Action scenes are intense, insane. The motorcycle chase had me genuinely fearful for Cruise's safety.
Tom Cruise is still doing his own stunts.
A continuity in the MI series which gets a little more interesting as it moves forward.
Seeing Cruise and Cavill duke it out.
Nice to see Ethan and his first wife catch some screen time together.
Theme song is still awesome
Plot is predictable.
The MI schtick is getting tired.
Mission Impossible: Fallout is a decent summer action movie. It does the job to keep the series going and inevitably we'll see another in a year or two.
