Latest installment of ‘Mission: Impossible’ is easily predictable, but never dull

“Mission: Impossible—Fallout” released in the United States on July 27 to critical acclaim, but its biggest twist was also its least surprising. “Mission: Impossible” follows Ethan Hunt, the leader of a fictional intelligence agency called the Impossible Mission Force (IMF).
