    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Fallout may not be the deepest movie ever, but it definitely one of the most exciting. Not since something like Back to the future has the script and the structure, and the stakes worked so flawlessly together. Always raising the bar, always something new.

    This movie goes hard on the project X aspect of it. The college party stuff, the comedy, and so on are where the movie spends most of its efforts. The characters are cardboard cut outs and the only ones that have some sort of arc is very tangential to the story.

    The horror aspect of it is what the movie is…
