Mission Impossible Fallout Review At Grand Lake Theater Oakland


Oakland News Now – In Mission Impossible Fallout, Tom Cruise manages to do what James Bond would never do: make being a secret agent look like a thankless job. In the process he made the best mission impossible movie of the series.

In paring with Superman Henry Cavill (who can’t quite make you think he is someone other than Clark Kent) Cruise always has to watch his back. And then there is Alec Baldwin. In playing Tom Cruise boss in the Impossible Mission Force, Alec Baldwin communicates that while he says he is supporting Tom Cruise who is Ethan Hunt, he also makes it clear he is willing to turn him in to suit his own purposes.

And then there is Rebecca Thompson. The amazing action actress appears throughout the film. But it’s not clear why she is in the movie until near the end.

The only two people Tom Cruise can trust are Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. Cruise can’t even trust CIA Director Angela Bassett.

All of that combined with incredible special effects, Makes for an edge-of-your-seat movie. In fact Mission Impossible: Fallout has so many special effects it might as well be a science-fiction movie.

Not less than eight special effects houses were employed to pull off some incredible scenes and stunts. If it’s not in the running for an Oscar for visual effects, something is wrong with Hollywood.

Overall, it’s an incredible summer movie, well worth the price of admission.

But before I conclude I have to say that Sean Harris plays one of the scariest action movie villains ever.

Stay tuned.
