The stunts are bigger, and the story is the best yet in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which arrives on Blu-ray December 4, and you could win a copy right here.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout finds the high octane and high risk Tom Cruise action franchise on assured, familiar footing, further establishing this now six film long series as one of the most dependable and lovingly crafted bits of Hollywood entertainment in the process.
The unimpressive big budget rebooting of The Mummy – which is set to kick off a “Dark Universe” franchise that brings together some of the silver screen’s most iconic movie monsters – is one of the laziest summer blockbusters in recent memory.
Ethan Hunt, AKA Tom Cruise in super-stunt mode, is back once again in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, the fifth film in the franchise that now spans 19 years, but this time Hunt has a fresh face helping him kick ass, and she’s ultimately one of the main reasons the film works so incredibly well.
If your jaw doesn’t drop while you’re watching Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, then you’re not really paying attention. Between star Tom Cruise’s unbelievable stunts, including hanging from the tallest building in the world–a dangerous, challenging stunt that most actors would never dream of attempting–and his charm, I would go so far as to say that Cruise rarely gets the praise he deserves for going beyond what should be expected of him.
