My head is telling me we’re at a point where the quote about politicians not understanding the reasons to do good is his most relevant line of dialogue. But because Bird’s movies are all about being positive, my heart says that there is hope and we can and will do better.
It isn’t often that the sixth movie in a franchise is the best installment. But it’s now the case with Mission: Impossible. Fallout is exhilarating and keeps your heart pounding the whole way through. When Brad Bird showed audiences what was possible with the M:I franchise in Ghost Protocol, it seemed like that was the best we would get. But Christopher McQuarrie debatably outdid him with Rogue Nation, and now has outdone himself with Fallout.
