Movie Diary 7/25/2018

Mission: Impossible – Fallout (Christopher McQuarrie, 2018). A difference between this film and its predecessor: In the enjoyable Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise frequently adopted a “can you believe what I’m going to do now?” expression, which lightened his presence and gave the film an engagingly comic feel. In Fallout, there’s quite a bit less of that, but what you get in exchange is a strong throughline about morality on an individual and global scale. That’s a pretty big leap, but it works. All the other big leaps work rather well, too.
