Mission: Impossible - Fallout ★★★½

I was deeply UNinvested for the first 30 minutes, but eventually it found traction and I dug in. Once it gets going, it's a great action film: crazy set-pieces with a real sense of thrust and intensity, and some great long camera work to really show off what's going on. It builds and builds, and there's definite payoff. The score sounds like the Mission: Impossible theme run through Inception's "Mombasa" and that's not entirely a bad thing, and serves the film well.
