Two years after Ethan Hunt had successfully captured Solomon Lane, the remnants of the Syndicate have reformed into another organization called the Apostles. Under the leadership of a mysterious fundamentalist known only as John Lark, the organization is planning on acquiring three plutonium cores. Ethan and his team are sent to Berlin to intercept them, but the mission fails when Ethan saves Luther and the Apostles escape with the plutonium. With CIA agent August Walker joining the team, Ethan and his allies must now find the plutonium cores before it's too late.Written by
While the specifications for the bomb were being revealed, an explosive yield of five megatons was mentioned. This would be impossible since a Plutonium core alone would only be capable of a fission reaction measured in kilotons of TNT. A second or even third stage involving a fusion reaction would be necessary to achieve an explosive yield in the multi-megaton range. This would require fuels such as lithium-6 deuteride and tritium and a much more complex design than what was shown in the movie. See more »

Another great entry in this epic franchise but, this time, with something different. Sure, the MI formula is still there, but there are so many characters, locations and interests that, somehow, all add up to a very simple plot.
This should be a complex movie, but it never feels like that. It is always clear what is happening, who is doing what and why. When something feels odd, it is because it is. Maybe it is simply a side effect of having so much baggage or maybe it is intentional, but it is a clear characteristic throughout the movie.
Cavill's acting can appear poor, but, at the same time, it seems like that is his character. Even the addition of another huge star can't shift the focus from Cruise, who completely dominates the screen, leaving gaps only to be perfectly filled by his co-stars.
The action is, as always, insane. Not much to be said about it, just MI level of epic. It is one of the best action movies of the decade and certainly of 2018.
