Mission: Impossible - Fallout is the sixth outing for Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt from the film's US government organisation the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), joined by regular returning team members Simon Pegg as Benjamin "Benji" Dunn and Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell.
Also returning from the previous film Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation are Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, a former MI6 agent. Sean Harris as Solomon Lane the anarchist leader of a secret organisation known as The Syndicate in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Alec Balwin as Alan Hunley now the new director of the IMF.
Additions to this film are Henry Cavill as August Walker - a CIA black ops assassin and Angela Bassett as Erica Sloane, the new Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout basically follows on from the previous film - Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. After the capture of Solomon Lane (Harris) previously and the collapse of the shadowy organisation known as The Syndicate we now find that Solomon's remaining follower's have risen to form an organisation called The Apostles.
During an arms deal that goes wrong at which Hunt (Tom Cruise), Benji (Simon Pegg) and Luther (Ving Rhames) are involved in, The Apostles manage to acquire three nuclear bombs. As suspicion falls on Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team because of their failure, the director of the CIA Sloane (Angela Bassett) brings in CIA black ops operative Walker (Henry Cavill) to shadow the IMF and aid in the recovery of the nuclear devices, using whatever means necessary.
Hunt (Tom Cruise) together with his team and Walker (Henry Cavill) set off to Paris to meet with an arms broker known as the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby) whilst Hunt (Tom Cruise) is impersonating the leader of The Apostles John Lark.
The White Widow (Vanessa Kirby) explains to Hunt/Lark (Tom Cruise) that the only way she will give him the nuclear devices is in exchange for Solomon Lane (Sean Harris), reluctantly Hunt (Tom Cruise) and the IMF team set out to capture Lane (Sean Harris).........
With it's multiple plot twists, the introduction of old and new characters combined with nods to the previous films in the franchise and of course the spectacular set piece action stunt sequences, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is an entertaining and enjoyable movie addition in this now 22 year old film franchise. Mission accomplished: a worthy four stars.
