Film Review: “Mission: Impossible – FALLOUT”

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT
Starring:  Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill and Ving Rhames
Directed by:  Christopher McQuarrie
Rated:  PG 13
Running time:  2 hrs 27 mins
Paramount

I’m curious if Tom Cruise has in his contracts a clause that says he must run in his films.  In early films like “Taps” and “The Outsiders” he ran with others.  He was constantly running to school in “Risky Business.”  “Legend.”  “The Firm.”  He raced Robert Duval at the end of “Days of Thunder.”  Hell, even though he spends most of the film in a wheelchair, he found time to run in “Born on the Fourth of July.”  But none of these films can prepare you for the mileage he covers in his latest adventure as Ethan Hunt: “Mission: Impossible – FALLOUT.”

The film begins with Hunt (Cruise) and his Impossible Mission Force (IMF) attempting to retrieve three pieces of hardware needed to outfit nuclear bombs.  However, when one of his force-mate’s life is put in jeopardy, Ethan chooses them over the success of the mission and the hardware is absconded with.  Cue the music!

Not only the best of the “Mission: Impossible” films, “FALLOUT” is also one of the best films of the year.  After an introductory scene that would have made the opening moments of most James Bond films seem tame, Hunt and company are soon introduced to CIA Agent August Walker (Cavill, out of his Superman uniform but just as bad-assed), a no-nonsense kind of guy who certainly would have let a member of his team die and not give it a second thought.

There are so many twists and turns here that to go into too much detail about the rest of the film would give away some nice plot points.  Suffice it to say that Cruise easily covers a few miles by way of his fleet feet.  Run, Ethan, run.

Media Mikes would like to give our fans a chance to win a Fallout 4 Special Edition Vinyl Soundtrack. If you want to win this great prize, please leave a comment below with your favorite weapon in Fallout 4. This giveaway will remain open until November 18th at Noon, Eastern Time.

Maybe you don’t need 3 and a half hours of Fallout soundtrack. Or maybe you don’t have $125 to spend right now. We’ve all been in a place in life where we didn’t have two bottlecaps to rub together, and that’s why we decided to pick up this Fallout 4 Special Edition Vinyl Soundtrack, pressed especially for ThinkGeek and GameStop.

In this special edition, the soundtrack from Fallout 4 has been stripped down to just 8 tracks, including the main theme, and both sides of the vinyl are images featuring the ambience of Fallout 4. Surprising for a vinyl album, it’s as pretty to look at as it is to listen to. We predict you’ll end up framing it if you manage to get yourself one of these.
