The first screening of Mission: Impossible – Fallout has just let out, and folks are eagerly tweeting their reactions to Ethan Hunt’s latest adventure. Fallout sees the return of Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation writer-director Christopher McQuarrie — the first time in the franchise a director has returned for a sequel — and follows Hunt and his team of familiar faces in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout opens July 27th and stars Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, Wes Bentley, and Frederick Schmidt. Here’s what folks are saying after the first screening:
Happy to report #MissionImpossibleFallout is a fantastic movie that’s absolutely loaded with *insane* action and edge of your seat holy shit moments. Not sure how @TomCruise keeps raising the bar but I’m so happy he does. The bathroom fight scene alone is worth price of admission pic.twitter.com/FPhnz37VCK

Before the #MissionImpossibleFallout screening @chrismcquarrie said they only finished the movie 5 days ago & @TomCruise saw the finished film last night. We were 1st audience to see finished film. Theater was made up of reporters & a lot of people that worked on film in Paris. pic.twitter.com/EnPED2i6VF — Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) July 9, 2018
Keep your eyes peeled – if you are a fan of this franchise, they scatter great nods to the other films throughout. And I can’t gush enough about the finale – it is wild, to say the least

#MissionImpossibleFallout: There needs to be a new MI movie every summer, because no other blockbuster franchise is, pound for pound, as entertaining and engrossing as this one has become.

Turning my twitter into a #MissionImpossible fan page. Goddamn. “Fallout” is an A+ action movie. The movie has the momentum of a freight train going off the rails, and when it does it’s exhilarating. Each action scene is breathles/engrossing in intensity and execution.

The acting Rebecca Ferguson can do through a fucking motorcycle helmet is amazing. The CGI justice league mustache was worth it because Cavill’s “Fallout” bathroom fight is legendary. Tom Cruise you’re a psycho, never change. #MissionImpossibleFallout

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE may be @TomCruise & @ChrisMcQuarrie’s THE DARK KNIGHT. This is EASILY the best active film franchise, the best action movie of the summer, and between 10 & 100 times better than ANY Marvel movie. Cruise is the greatest movie star there is, was, & EVER will be.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE — FALLOUT is a masterpiece?
— Richard Lawson (@rilaws) July 12, 2018
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT is the rare true direct sequel in this series. And we learn the most about Ethan Hunt. It’s the SKYFALL of M:I movies. Also, yes, it’s insanely exhilarating.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout is like tiptoeing across a sky-high tightrope for 2.5 hours. Flawless momentum, genuinely jaw-dropping setpieces. Henry Cavill is a fantastic addition. The best action movie since Fury Road.

Mission: Impossible Fallout is relentless. It’s intense and so flat out exciting that you laugh because you can’t believe what you’re seeing. It’s incredible.
