Just walked out of #MissionImpossibleFallout, which is absolutely fantastic. This movie entertains you in every which way - incredible action sequences, nail-biting suspense & hands down the series best finale yet. My favorite movie of the summer right there - loved every second pic.twitter.com/hWUnI7P2jQ— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) July 9, 2018
Keep your eyes peeled - if you are a fan of this franchise, they scatter great nods to the other films throughout. And I can’t gush enough about the finale - it is wild, to say the least— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) July 9, 2018
Happy to report #MissionImpossibleFallout is a fantastic movie that's absolutely loaded with *insane* action and edge of your seat holy shit moments. Not sure how @TomCruise keeps raising the bar but I'm so happy he does. The bathroom fight scene alone is worth price of admission pic.twitter.com/FPhnz37VCK— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) July 9, 2018
Before the #MissionImpossibleFallout screening @chrismcquarrie said they only finished the movie 5 days ago & @TomCruise saw the finished film last night. We were 1st audience to see finished film. Theater was made up of reporters & a lot of people that worked on film in Paris. pic.twitter.com/EnPED2i6VF— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) July 9, 2018
#MissionImpossible FALLOUT is exactly as thrilling as you hope it will be! Amazing action, but it never overshadows the high stakes.— Daniel Howat (@howatdk) July 10, 2018
We don’t see stunt-work like this much anymore. A breath of fresh air amidst the CGI-fueled summer. Mission: Impossible is as strong as ever. pic.twitter.com/GbG8QpFHHG
Just saw #MissionImpossibleFallout - it was the very 1st screening of the film with lots of the cast and team in the room. @chrismcquarrie said it was finished 5 days ago. I'm not sure how he keeps upping his game but @TomCruise is fantastic. Stuntman, action hero extraordinaire.— Eve Jackson (@evelinginparis) July 10, 2018
Oh man the action in #MissionImpossibleFallout is unbelievable! 💪— Chris Van Vliet (@ChrisVanVliet) July 10, 2018
I’m not sure that @TomCruise is human. The amount of stunts he pulls off in this is mind blowing... especially with a broken freaking leg! pic.twitter.com/Fchu5LtfyA
