Regardless of your opinion of Tom Cruise as a person, the dude is one hell of an action star.
For one thing, he does his own stunts. You might hear that and think “yeah it’s easy to do that on a green screen”. Sure, that’s easy, but Cruise doesn’t do easy. That scene where he grabs a rope to a helicopter and climbs up onto it? Yeah, he probably actually did that. Jumping from roof to roof? He broke his ankle on that… and kept going so not to ruin the shot.
The actual movie of ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ looks like it’s going to be great. Ethan (Cruise) fails at a mission to keep his team alive, despite the Alan Hunley (Alex Baldwin) and the CIA (lead by Angela Bassett) wishes. Now Ethan is questioning everything, and he teams up with allies old and new (Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, more) to take on whoever it takes. Henry Cavil and Cruise have an awesome battle and Cavil’s Justice League ruining mustache looks great.
‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ releases July 27, 2018.
