Care Impossible

Any movie fan understands how hard it’s to enjoy the third or even the second installment of your favorite movie. The same goes with “Mission Impossible”, especially when we talk about the sixth part of the franchise. We’ve already seen our favorite characters nearly die, we’ve seen all the possible solution to the hardest situations Tom Cruise’s character was put into. So now what?

“Ethan’s buddies keep telling us what a good man Ethan is, and McQuarrie gives him some bad dreams to assure us that he has an inner life. But even after six films, it’s hard to warm to this invincible robot as much as you might warm to James Bond or Jason Bourne. Can you enjoy his knockabout adventures? Definitely. But can you care about them? Impossible,” writes Nicholas Barber for BBC.

Make it simpler, but more exciting

Instead of showing the thrilling scene, the characters go to the disco in Paris using the parachute to get to the place: “So was a parachute jump really the most surreptitious and practical way for our super spies to get there? Of course not, but Christopher McQuarrie, the film’s writer-director, must have realised that if Ethan had taken the Metro to the club there might have been a gap of more than five minutes between action sequences – and there was no way he was going to let that happen.”

That’s why it might be wiser to just cut off the parachute stuff and maybe show us a few scenes where characters get to know each other more.

Insane stunts

Before the premiere of the sixth part of the franchise, the question remains: how will Tom Cruise outdo himself this time? The fans obviously remember the best stuns performed by Tom Cruise’s character in the previous parts: Burj Khalifa leap, dangling off a plane, Jack Reacher chase and many more.

However, it’s been almost 3 years after Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation release and nowadays it’s hard to beat VFX like Avengers series or any other modern superhero film at the box office. So, it’s actually really hard to create something completely new taking into account what an insane year was for the movie industry.

Abundance of almost everything

The plot of Mission: Impossible – Fallout is clear and quite easy to understand, but why exactly there are so many stunts and actions? The problem of the movie is that scenes “so abundant as to become monotonous. There’s barely a second to breathe in between the Halo jumping, the motorcycle crashing, the helicopter ramming, and, in the tedious countdown-clock climax, the frenetic frame-toggling between widescreen 2.39 and IMAX 1.90 aspect ratios,” writes Keith Uhlich for Slant Magazine.

Hard to fight Tom Cruise

The previous parts were more about finding a way to outsmart the antagonists, be cleverer than them and amaze the audience with various tricky things, but “this one is principally about being tougher and more determined. The main theme is that if you grit your teeth and stare so intently at your target that your eyes almost pop out of your skull, then you can somehow will yourself to victory – assuming, of course, you are as indestructible as Ethan.”
