Mission: Impossible - Fallout ★★

Started off well. Took up where the decent previous 2 films left off. Solid action, decent characters, just unbelievable enough. Seems like the writers got tired as the movie goes on. Dialogue becomes more forced and one-liner driven, the concept of dramatic pacing seems to go out the window, and we resort to typical cheap suspense tactics of a literal countdown, and we end up the the predictable feel-good ending the movie kept threatening not to have. It doesn't take away from the series, but it certainly doesn't add to it either.
