I ended up seeing the new Tom Cruise movie TWICE this week (it just opened on Thursday)! I was traveling in Boulder, Colorado, and had so much extra time! I didn’t know what else to do but see a movie. The movie theater (Century) in Boulder was a little weird – you reserve your seat when you buy your ticket. I don’t really like this, because you never know you are going to sit by or if a lot of people are going to buy seats by you. I like having some space around me in the movie theater, especially if people are going to be talking during the movie or even the promos.
Mission Impossible: Fallout Gets 4 Stars
I give the newest Mission Impossible movie 4 stars (not 5). I LOVE these kinds of action movies and I LOVE all Tom Cruise movies (minus that weird sex one). But the movie is VERY LONG (almost 3 hours once you sit thru all the promos, 2.5 hours if you watch it at home). And it’s not as funny as the last one! I thought that was a big selling point of the Mission Impossible movies over the James Bond movies: more joking and not taking itself so seriously.
The movie name, Fallout, refers to nuclear fallout from nuclear bombs.
More Tom Cruise Chase Scenes
There’s lots of great chase scenes, including a motorcycle chase through the narrow streets of Paris and a Star Wars-type helicopter chase through narrow mountain canyons. Plus lots of running and fist-fight scenes.
I thought the story line had way too many things going on. It could’ve been divided into 2 movies.
Tom Cruise still looks good 🙂 I read afterwards that he did some of the crazy stunts in the movie, like dangling from a helicopter and leaping between buildings in London (he broke his ankle).
