Top 5: Mission Impossible: Fallout vs Infinity War & Deadpool 2

Top 5 Reasons Why Mission Impossible: Fallout is the Best Movie of the Summer and Avengers: Infinity War or Deadpool 2 Were Not Even Close!

Prelude: Just to clarify, this is just my opinion piece and I don't want to offend anyone with my thoughts. If you like Avengers: Infinity War or even Deadpool 2, it's fine, nothing wrong with that. It's just the magic of cinema. Also, I'm well aware that they're many indie films like Hereditary or Won't You Be My Neighbor? which are certainly much better than these summer blockbusters, and I only want to concentrate on Popular Films. So, I hope everyone is on the same page and with that being said, let's get started!

Reason #1: The Breathtaking Stunts

Advertised and been told as the largest practical action film ever shot, I was astounded to see the amount of hard work, courage and dedication Tom Cruise and the entire crew had put through to entertain the audience and make the big-screen experience memorable. Overwhelmed with CGI, I bet you can't point out any impressive action scene from both Infinity War and Deadpool 2 of the top of your mind. In Fallout, to name a few, the HALO jump, the entire Helicopter scene, felt incredibly special to watch cause it is, in fact, Cruise (not Josh Brolin in a suit) doing most of these deadly stunts without the help from a stunt-double.

Reason #2: Mr Tom Cruise

The second reason why this franchise feels very special is that of The Man, The Myth, The Legend, Tom Cruise, who is crazy enough to up the ante every time we see him in these movies. There is a real reason why he's called the Greatest Action Movie Star of our generation and it's because he trains and skillfully performs these awe-inspiring stunt sequences which are theatric, spectacular and at the same time concerning to watch. The guy is 56 years old and still wants to entertain his audience and make their penny's worth, which is applaudable. I even heard him mention in an interview, that he and his team gave a serious thought to do an action sequence in space. Geeeez! How far can you go?

Reason #3: An Intriguing Storyline

Now, I'll not even bring Deadpool 2 into this conversation. What's the plot of Infinity War again? Ohh! Thanos snaps his fingers and half of the population vanishes including our favourite Avengers? So, this was his unpopular option to bring law and order to the world? Sounds very familiar! Because that's the same thing every evil-minded supervillain want to accomplish. Destroy half of the society and take control over the world. Even Fallout explores a similar storyline.

But, continuing as the sixth film in the franchise, Fallout still manages to keep the viewer interesting by taking an ordinary storyline and making it intriguing to watch by adding few twists and turns which didn't feel forced.

Reason #4: The Not-So-Cheesy Jokes

Let me start by saying this, few of the previous MCU films were funny, the first Deadpool movie was a riot. However, the comedic scenes in Deadpool 2 stopped being funny after a while and same goes to Infinity War. They got repetitive, oversaturated and the whole thing became unfunny. I remember Rocket Raccoon cracking a stupid silly joke in the midst of serious fight which spoiled the entire scene and that kept happening in both the films.

On the other side, Fallout, for the most part, deals with a serious tone, but the comedic sequences were short, funny and are not overdone, unlike the previous two mentioned films.

Reason #5: A Cinematic Experience

Now, I agree, watching the Avengers fight against the CGI giant Thanos and Deadpool dodge bullets from Cable is pretty cool on the big screen. But, there's something really special watching Cruise doing these mesmerizing stunts. It's a heart-stopping experience, and it gave me goosebumps even when watching it for the second time. There is a reason why I go to the movies every week and Fallout enthralled me by making it an absolute cinematic experience which I never really came across in recent times.

TOP 5 HOLLYWOOD MOVIES RELEASING THIS SUMMER

5. Christopher McQuarrie's - 'Mission: Impossible – Fallout'

Release Date - July 27 | Starring - Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson

'Mission Impossible' is always exciting and amazing franchise to watch because of its superior quality and the breathtaking action sequences. With Christopher McQuarrie who previously directed 'Rogue Nation' and 'Jack Reacher' returning to the director's chair, 'Fallout' looks promising and will no doubt be another highly successful film in the franchise.

4. J. A. Bayona's - 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'

Release Date - June 22 | Starring - Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard

With the earlier film in the franchise 'Jurassic World' grossing over 1.6 billion worldwide, fans were really excited about the sequel until they've watched the promos which received a mixed reaction. But, Jurassic World has a larger appeal from the worldwide audience and will surely be a blockbuster. But, will it succeed its predecessor in terms of story, screenplay, action, and box-office? We just have to wait and see.

3. Ron Howard's - 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Release Date - May 25 | Starring - Alden Ehrenreich and Emilia Clarke

With numerous rumors, suspicions, and overall a negative vibe surrounding the film, 'Solo' should be a very interesting film to watch primarily because of the difficulties it went through during production. Moreover, Han Solo is the most beloved hero in the Star Wars Universe and his backstory is something I'm excited to watch. Hopefully, the film doesn't disappoint!

2. David Leitch's - 'Deadpool 2'

Release Date - May 18 | Starring - Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin

'Deadpool (2016)' is a game-changer, the Rated R humor, action, and the execution inspired many Comic Book Films like 'Logan' and the audience responded to the film remarkably as it wreaked havoc at the box-office grossing over 780 million worldwide. 'Deadpool 2' already started to make a mark in the film community with its amusing promos and trailers with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Josh Brolin as Cable. Even though Tim Miller didn't return to direct the second installment, this film still looks fun and will surely be an entertaining ride.

1. The Russo Brothers' - 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Release Date - April 27 | Starring - Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans

Here comes the big dog, the mothership of all Comic Book / Superhero films, 'Infinity War' is tracking to make over 200 million dollars in its opening weekend and with all the hype 'Black Panther' is carrying right now, 'Infinity War' will no-doubt become the biggest Superhero film of all time with major developments in its storyline and characters. Let's hope the film delivers the way we anticipated.
