Trailer Review: Mission: Impossible - Fallout
You either love or hate Tom Cruise, but one thing's for sure, when it comes to actors doing their own stunts, he has pushed the boundaries again and again, which seems to be exactly what he is doing for Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
With the global event that is the Super Bowl taking place the Sunday just gone, we were treated to a boat load of new trailers; one being for Mission: Impossible 6. Each Mission: Impossible has changed in style, with the first one being more of a thriller, the second instalment being an outright action film, and the rest slowly finding a balance between the two genres. I have always been a huge fan of this franchise as they’ve alway pushed limits when building suspense, so when I saw the trailer for Mission: Impossible 6 drop, I was eager to check it out, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The trailer seems to give us a good glimpse of what to expect, and that is some ridiculous stunts and a lot of double crossing agents, leaving our hero Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, to fend for himself. What I love about these films, and Cruise, is that he does all these stunts himself, which allows the director to get some incredible close-up shots of the action as they don’t have to worry about revealing a stunt double. I also love that this makes them stay away from CGI, making the films timeless.
From the looks of the trailer, Ethan will be joined by some familiar faces, such as Simon Pegg as Benji and Ving Rhames as Luthor, which I found weird, as they both have never crossed films before as both of them are kind of Ethan’s gadget men, so it’ll be interesting to see how that works. We also get a glimpse of Michelle Monaghan’s character, Julia, who is Ethan’s wife. I’m curious to see how she is brought back into it, as the last we saw of her was in MI:4, where Ethan was watching over her as they can no longer be together, due to his life being too dangerous. There are also some new faces, one being Superman himself, Henry Cavill, playing what seems to be a CIA agent, who, in some clips seems to be against Hunt, but working with him in others. There’s a cool bit in this trailer where we see Cavill really kicking ass, which I am looking forward to see. I also hope that his mustache is worth it, after it was a glaring fault in his previous film, Justice League, due to it having to be CGI’d out after reshoots!
The trailer for Mission Impossible 6: Fallout doesn’t give much away, but it certainly has got me excited for it, even if the music for this preview was a really bad rehash of the iconic theme. I will choose to accept watching this film on July 27th...
