Mission Impossible-Fallout Review

In Movies by Ent Dem TeamLeave a Comment

The Mission Impossible franchise has been quietly hard at work, building mind-blowing action sequences and clever characters, slowly increasing critical credibility and box-office taking at the same time.

I know it’s almost cheating but we talk about Black Panther and have a conversation about how they portray race (especially ironic given the very caucasian appearance of us), we deal with the stealth delivery of The Cloverfield Paradox and we fret about Solo after seeing the Superbowl …
