    ★★½

    55/100

It was a charming, quiet, funny and mysterious little movie.

    What this sequel does, is take everything…

    ★★★★½

    "I thought this was 150 minutes, where's the rest 60 minutes?"

    That was my first thought when "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" ended, I honestly could not believe this insane ride was already over.

    I'm struggling to remember a more adrenaline-inducing third act in an action film and the closest I got was Mad Max: Fury Road. And, honestly, I dare say Fallout surpassed what was one of the most action-packed movies ever made.

    I saw all previous five Mission Impossible…
