There's no denying that the Mission: Impossible franchise continues to deliver, film after film, with the three best films in the Tom Cruise-fronted series coming in this decade. That's no small feat for a franchise that started 22 years ago with Brian De Palma at the helm.
Screen Junkies take their potshots at the latest entry in the series, Fallout, with a pretty fantastic Honest Trailer. They obviously handle the film's many balls jokes with the deep voiced reading of the word "balls," which never gets old. None of this is to mention this film's many callbacks to the previous films in the franchise that you've likely forgotten all about.
If I've any complaint about Fallout, it seems to be the same one they raise, which is that it's all a bunch of gobbledygook when there's not an action sequence happening. No one in the movies understands the plot, and the audience is similarly left baffled by it all. But none of that matters when there's another smash 'em up, bang 'em up, kill 'em with fire action chase scene to be had.
I imagine this will play better at home where you can fast forward through the boring stuff and just focus on the cool, amazing, totally awesome stunt work and action sequences. Mission: Impossible—Fallout is available now on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray, and Digital HD.
