"Insane action", "Nail-biting suspense", "The best movie of the summer", "Best Trailer of 2018". Critics are already raving about #MissionImpossible.

Prepare for the biggest, boldest stunts yet, as Oscar nominee Tom Cruise doubles down in a series of death-defying stunts as the IMF action man. No green screens are used, this is intense, delirious action like never before - the downward spiral, the motorcycle chase, the rooftop chase, the halo jump and more.

Tom Cruise is regarded as the greatest living movie star, a term hardly used in today's Hollywood, but he remains unrivalled as "a larger-than-life performer" and "an icon of the silver screen".

As Mission: Impossible Fallout rolls out across the Palace Amusement circuit this week, Jamaica and Jamaicans can certifiably lay claim to an up close and personal relationship with Tom Cruise, who has shot at least one movie on location here on the rock and who continues to return to the island for quality R&R.

Collectively, the Mission: Impossible franchise, which is based on the 1960s television show of the same name, has grossed more than $2.7 billion. This is the sixth instalment and the second film to be directed by Academy Award winner Christopher McQuarrie after Rogue Nation (2015), making him the first person to direct more than one film in the franchise.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout finds Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his IMF team - Academy Award nominee Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Golden Globe Award winner Ving Rhames, along with some familiar allies Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan - in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Arms dealer John Lark and a group of terrorists known as the Apostles plan to use three plutonium cores for a simultaneous nuclear attack on the Vatican, Jerusalem and Mecca and Saudi Arabia. When the weapons go missing, Ethan and his crew find themselves in a desperate race against time to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast.
