CHICAGO – By any reasonable account, Tom Cruise should be entering into a phase in the “Mission Impossible” series not unlike the latter James Bond films of Roger Moore… appearing in closeups and letting the stuntmen do the rest. However, Cruise continues to outrun the ravages of time, and his stunts only seem to get crazier in the sixth film, “Mission Impossible: Fallout.”

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 4.0/5.0
Rating: 4.0/5.0

The latter installments of the series – four, five and now six – are for my money the superior ones. The sixth film of this reliably entertaining franchise doesn’t have the immediate “WTF” factor of the last installment where Cruise clung to the outside of a cargo plane during takeoff in the opening scene, but after the relatively slow start it picks up the pace and never lets up.

“Mission Impossible: Fallout” opens everywhere in on July 27th in IMAX, 3D, RPX and regular screenings. See local listings for specialty theater and show time options. Featuring Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin and Angela Bassett. Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. Rated “PG-13”

    CHICAGO – He was America’s sidekick in TV’s golden decades of the 1960s and ‘70s, and was a proud Chicago-born-and-bred performer. Bill Daily, better known as Major Roger Healey (“I Dream of Jeannie”) and the wacky neighbor Howard Borden (“The Bob Newhart Show”) died at his New Mexico home at the age of 91 on September 4th, 2018.
