“Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (⋆⋆⋆⋆, PG-13) has Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team facing a nuclear threat at the hands of an old enemy. The film is wall-to-wall action with Cruise at the heart of each scene, doing his own stunts. He spent a year learning to fly a helicopter so he could make the final chase scene as realistic as possible. The same goes for the high-speed motorcycle chases and high-altitude parachute jump. “Fallout” is the best action movie of the year.
