Mission: Impossible – Fallout
First screened in August 2018
Director: Christopher McQuarrie. Cast: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Alec Baldwin, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Michelle Monaghan, Frederick Schmidt, Kristoffer Joner, Liang Yang, Wes Bentley. Screenplay: Christopher McQuarrie (based on the except, you know what, it's so utterly not at this point).

Twitter Capsule: Little facility for linking convoluted story to over-extended action scenes. Cruise not an asset.

VOR:   Interesting dossier on Cruise's shaky yet superconfident star image. I appreciate the emphasis on real stunts. But M:I has become a bland mill.
