This exciting addition to the franchise gets a solid 4.5 Icees out of 5. It has action, twists, great fight scenes… everything you’d expect from a Mission Impossible movie. The only thing that knocks it back is that some parts of it are just a little too predictable.
Newcomers Angela Bassett and Henry Cavill, along with Vanessa Kirby add some good depth to the file, but the cool thing about this movie is that it brings back (as shown in the trailers) Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa and Michelle Monaghan as Julia (I think Mr. Hunt has a type… just sayin’). Throw in an ample amount of Ving and Simon, mixing in just a touch of Alec and you have the whole gang. Well, except for Jeremy Renner, which I missed not being a part of this one. I liked his character. Oh well. Interesting side note about Jeremy. He wasn’t in Avenger’s; Infinity War (Hawkeye) and he wasn’t in this. I sure hope he didn’t pass up roles in those two movies to be in Tag. That would just be sad.
Anyways, back to MI6… The stunts in this movie were incredible, and even if some were done in front of a green screen… they were still pretty darn good! There are some obvious “twists” that you see a mile away but some that come as a surprise. Either way, there are twists a-plenty.
If you are a fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise, you will thoroughly love this movie. If not, well I still think you’ll like it.
No scenes during or after the credits.
