Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Saturday afternoon, Sharon, Jack and I saw Mission: Impossible - Fallout at the Palladio Luxe in Folsom. This is the sixth installment of the film series. The three of us saw fifth installment (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) in Boston in 2015 during our east coast college tour. While Sharon, Jack and I saw the third film in 2012, I don't think that we ever saw the fourth film...

The cast includes Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin. They are all reprising their roles from previous films. Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team must track down stolen plutonium while being monitored by a CIA agent (Henry Cavill) after a mission goes awry. The movie builds on the events of the previous film.

Jumping between buildings in the chase set in London, Cruise broken his ankle. This halted production for about seven weeks.

As a kid, I loved watching the old television series. The theme song for the series is part of the soundtrack for my life.

I enjoyed the movie. It was solid mindless entertainment.
