After more than 20 years and five movies, you'd begin to wonder if there are actually any impossible missions.
But just to remind you that it doesn't get any easier, Tom Cruise and Co. are back to take another crack at saving the world in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
Without further ado, let's light this fuse and find out if this mission is one worth accepting:
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE — FALLOUT is easily the best action movie since Fury Road. just god-level stuff. the highest praise I can give a movie: I’m not even mad it’s making me late to Radiohead.— david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) July 12, 2018
#MissionImpossibleFallout: There needs to be a new MI movie every summer, because no other blockbuster franchise is, pound for pound, as entertaining and engrossing as this one has become.— Kate Erbland (@katerbland) July 12, 2018
#MissionImpossibleFallout best action movie in YEARS! Cruise & Cavill rule, stunts crazier than ever. Can’t decide which was cooler - the HALO jump or scene where Cruise intentionally contracts tetanus and commands the stunt crew to amputate his leg. Easily the best MISSION yet!— ben mekler (@benmekler) July 12, 2018
#MissionImpossibleFallout is so good, I’m going to have problems getting to sleep tonight. The best since the first, and maybe ever? I think that might actually be true?— Adam B. Vary (@adambvary) July 12, 2018
After sleeping on it, I’m jumping out of the helicopter and declaring #MissionImpossibleFallout the best action movie of the century. I was struck by lightning y’all and I’m still smiling from it’s beauty and ludicrous intensity. What a feat.— Brian Formo (@BrianFormo) July 12, 2018

How does this series just keep getting better and better?
Much like its evergreen star, the Mission: Impossible franchise is not only showing no signs of slowing down, it's perpetually raising the bar with each instalment.
In terms of cinematic spectacle, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is even earning effusive comparisons to Mad Max: Fury Road, Skyfall and The Dark Knight, with many outlets highlighting the action sequences and stunt work as some of the greatest ever produced.
Watch out Avengers: Infinity War, you've got some serious competition for blockbuster of the year!
