Archant

Unbelievable in every sense of the word, Mission Impossible: Fallout is the series highlight and, ultimately, it deserves to be hailed as one of the best action movies ever made.

Full of death-defying, edge-of-your-seat set pieces - car chases through Paris, roof-jumping across London, helicopter hopping over the Kashmir mountains and everything else imaginable, the latest instalment of the high-octane series is everything that you hope for from a movie like this.

The ultimate escape from reality, within minutes you’re lost in the film as the tension ramps up and the thrill ride proves to be the summer blockbuster we’ve been waiting for.

With Tom Cruise (somehow now 56-years-old) returning as Ethan Hunt, still doing his own stunts of course, it’s an unrelenting rollercoaster of brilliantly shot set pieces and breathtaking real-life superhero world-saving.

Fallout finds Ethan and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time to save the world from nuclear disaster after a mission gone wrong, with Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby joining the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm as director.

Though Fallout clocks in at just under two and a half hours, and packs in countless genuinely unexpected twists and turns, it never feels overly stretched; rather the time seems to fly by... a constant adrenaline rush.

Mission Impossible: Fallout is now showing at the Light Cinema in Wisbech.
