The film also stars Henry Cavill with his legendary mustache as August Walker, a CIA assassin working for the Special Activities Division tasked with monitoring Ethan and his team.
The film is a full package of high-octane action sequences, chase sequences, and breathtaking stunts. Apart from its action, the film’s direction and the story is very crisp and to the point. The story never loses its pace, and chunks of exciting and thrilling moments keep on happening which keeps the audience engaged. The film is shot really well, especially the action and the stunt scenes, with a slightly shaky but impressive effect to make it feel real. Acting wise, the film is fair enough, and especially the comedy moments blends really well with film’s thrilling tone. Many critics hailed it as the best installment in the series, with some considering it one of the greatest action films of all-time.
Verdict : A fully action-packed film and totally worth a watch.
