And it was only after putting it all together that he realized just how huge and utterly insane this film was. For Christopher McQuarrie, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is his second Mission: Impossible film. Previously, he worked on Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. McQuarrie was also listed as the only director who gushed the Mission: Impossible franchise twice. Other directors, such as Brian De Palma, John Woo, JJ Abrams, and Brad Bird, have only been there once each.
Since it was first launched in 1996, Mission: Impossible has been one of the most successful franchises in the world of cinema. Of the five series that have been released, able to generate revenue of USD 2.7 billion.
In addition, in terms of quality, Mission: Impossible films also continue to improve. The first and second films are mediocre, while the third film is quite decent. However, the fourth and fifth films managed to get a positive response from critics. Which, usually, is sarcastic about those action films.
And, it seems, Mission: Impossible – Fallout will be even more successful. After holding its world premiere in Paris (on July 12, 2018, this 147 minute film received a very positive response from critics. In fact, it is not only touted as the best Mission: Impossible film, but also considered one of the best action films of all time. !
Critics said that Mission: Impossible – Fallout was fun to watch. With its plot that flows fast and twists. In addition, the action scenes are also very crazy. Director Christopher McQuarrie is considered to have managed to set high standards. Which will be difficult to be matched by other action films.
In working on Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Christopher McQuarrie really prefers to use practical effects rather than applying CGI (computer-generated imagery) technology. And, as a result, the film released by Paramount Pictures looks very real. Practical effects without a computer touch at all do make a big difference. Viewers will see the characters as fully human. Not just digital engineering.
Besides Christopher McQuarrie, who also received a lot of praise is Tom Cruise. His boundless passion will satisfy any action movie addict. At the age of 56, he is still able to run, jump, climb, dive, fight on steep cliffs at an altitude of 610 meters, and jump from planes at an altitude of more than 7,000 meters.
Tom Cruise’s free fall from the plane is the most iconic scene in the Mission: Impossible – Fallout film. The preparation was no joke. Very heavy. It’s harder than holding back longing for an ex that already belongs to someone else. Dylan will not be strong either.
In order to perform the HALO (high altitude, low opening) jump, the Mission: Impossible – Fallout production team modified the oxygen mask worn by Tom Cruise. So that his face is clearly visible when he is freefalling from the plane. With a speed of 321.9 km/h!
And, what makes it very difficult, to get a super cool scene that is very dangerous, it is not enough to just do it once or twice. Just imagine. Tom Cruise had to repeat it 106 times. Yes, 106 times. For perfect results. Absolutely spectacular!
