Mission: Impossible- Fallout

I doubt I'll see it at a theater, but I will definitely watch it at some point. I think I've seen them all, a couple better than the others.

This one looks over the top in terms of stunts and special effects, but that's pretty much what we've always expected from these movies. At some point Cruise is going to reach the Harrison Ford stage, where folks begin to wonder when he'll start incorporating a high tech walker into his little bag of tricks.

I just Googled this:

does scientology make money if I watch a tom cruise movie on netflix

No definitive answer.

You can try substituting John Travolta or some other Hollyweird's if you want.

While I don't condone breaking US law, I hear former members who've left, BitTorrent all his movies

I went to the premier in DC. Met the cast (to include Tom Cruise) as well as the Director (my wife and I were invited by a Veterans org).

The movie was okay. Typical Mission Impossible movie of high action and crazy stunts. It wasn't terrible as there are some good plot twists and whatnot. I think it's worth seeing on the big screen for all the action, but I wouldn't wait in any lines to see it. I hope that helps.

It's really good, if you are a fan of the others. They've refined the stunts, and because he's actually doing it, it looks better than the competition (007 for example). The plot was really tightly woven, it ties the last few together, and the stakes are high, making it super suspenseful. Scenery is top notch.

All the others have been good entertaining escapism action flicks, and Tom Cruise is a decent actor usually putting ou a good movie, so I expect none the less with this one. Look forward to seeing it with my nephews.

Saw it today. Pretty decent all-around. Good action sequences and stunts, though you can guess what it going to happen with regards to who the villain really is.

Saw it the day it came out here. Liked it, Cruise is a decent actor and he does all the motorcycle stuff so I do like that aspect. Was worth the money IMO.

Saw it in IMAX and I think worth the price. Amazing visuals, great hand-to-hand combat scenes and as others said, the stunts are great. May be my favorite in the series with only the first one winning because..well, first one.

My daughter's stepson is named Ethan Hunt. He and seven other Ethan Hunts were invited to the studio as a promotion for the movie. They participated in replicating some of the stunts. He had a ball riding in helicopters and boats provided by the studio.

Do you need to have seen the others to make this one make sense?
