Awesome over-the-top stunts dominate the most intense, but best M:I yet.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout is amazing! It has some of the best stunts I have ever seen in a movie and a really entertaining and colorful story. However, while many older tweens of the series may be eager to see it, this is definitely the most intense one yet, and certainly isn’t for tweens.
Educational Value: 0/5. Intended to entertain rather than to educate.
Positive Messages: 2/5. There’s some messages about teamwork, friendship and courage, but this movie is all about the action.
Positive Role Models: 3/5. Ethan Hunt is still courageous and determined to do good, and doesn’t hurt anyone unless he has to. His teammates seem more useful and helpful in this one than in the previous one and highlight friendship and teamwork more. There are also a few strong female leads who kick some serious butt.
Violence: 4/5. This film is definitely the most intense one yet. There’s lots of hand-to-hand combat, but not as many guns or weapons than in the previous films. A cop gets shot and gets a somewhat bloody wound. There’s also wild and over-the-top stunts, but none are ever too scary. A character’s face gets burned in the final fight, which may gross out younger kids. (Spoiler Alert: A key character dies non-gorily.) (Spoiler Alert: The villain is stabbed in the head with a hook, but it happens fast.)
Sex: 1/5. One unexpected kiss. Drunk men make suggestive comments about other men who are stuck in a bathroom stall.
Language: 3/5. There’s one use of “f**king”, as well as infrequent uses of “s**t”, “a**”, “b**ch”, “b***ard”, “hell” and “damn”.
Consumerism: 1/5. BMW.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking: 1/5. A somewhat long scene takes place in a bar. Drunk men say suggestive comments to other men stuck in a bathroom stall.
Overall, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is a great and action-packed addition to the M:I franchise. Many fans will love it, and parents should definitely let them if their child is 13 or older.
