“Mission Impossible: Fallout” is one of the most intense thrillers in recent times

From the start, the sixth film in the Mission Impossible franchise put the pedal to the metal. Tom Cruise’s likeability and reputation for dangerous stunts are in full display in this action extravaganza. The shootouts, explosions, running and speeding cars that are expected in a movie like this are delivered amazingly. However, this time “Fallout” […]
