Henry Cavill: ‘Mission’s’ Mission Is To Please ‘Impossible’ Audiences

With each new film in the Mission: Impossible series, it seems like the bar is raised, in terms of the action, the stakes, and the stunts. When we spoke to Henry Cavill, who stars in Mission: Impossible – Fallout with Tom Cruise, about the movie, he told us that yes, everything’s gotten bigger and better, but he doesn’t think it’s because audiences won’t be interested otherwise.

Henry Cavill Relished Practical Stunt Opportunities With ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’

Henry Cavill stars in Mission: Impossible – Fallout as August Walker, a CIA operative who ends up butting heads with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and the IMF team on their latest job. Thanks to his work as Superman, Henry Cavill knows a thing or two about doing action scenes, but he relished working on practical stunts with his latest film.

“I was excited about going to everywhere in the world, not just Paris, and doing these things for real,” said Cavill. “It was more of an opportunity. I got to meet the stunt team and work with them on building and developing stuff and then do it. I take pride in that.”

Mission: Impossible – Fallout, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, opens nationwide July 27.

Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Is Ethan Hunt’s Crowning Moment

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF mates (Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin) are back with Mission: Impossible – Fallout. the great news is Director/writer Christopher McQuarrie, who helmed Cruise in the first rate Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Jack Reacher, is behind the camera, and his top notch skills are on full display. Years ago McQuarrie penned the script for The Usual Suspects, and his adept touch at crafting twisty narratives is well suited for the M:I franchise.

Hunt’s nemesis Solomon Lane (Sean Harris), though imprisoned, continues to hold power thanks to three plutonium bombs that need to be retrieved. The IMF’s goal is to retrieve the bombs before they detonate, and as usual their mission has friction from the government, as CIA operative August Walker (a buff and ready to slug it out Henry Cavill) joins the team with his own agenda at the insistence of his boss (Angela Bassett). Scene stealer Rebecca Ferguson returns as Ilsa, and like before her true motivations are unclear. The Crown actress Vanessa Kirby is thrown in for good measure as the White Widow, a powerful middle person who may hold the key to the IMF’s ultimate success or doom. 

The Paris and London locales are the backdrops from several of the movie’s stunning and immersive action sequences, while the climactic sequence serves as a slight nod to the second M:I flick. At 56, Cruise doesn’t look any worse for wear, even if he was seriously injured during the London building to building jump. To give away any other plot details would lead us into spoiler territory, and the only clue I’ll share is that Hunt’s personal life, and not just the actual mission, is given a ton of attention this go round.

While Brian De Palma’s Mission: Impossible was wonderful at delivering the double cross and intrigue (plus who could forget that train sequence?), Fallout is actually the most well rounded of the series. It’s great to see Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg fully engaged in the mission, and this time around Hunt is not just the star of the show, he’s really part of the team. Hunt’s taped messages may destruct in several seconds, but the franchise is currently at its peak, with no “fallout” in sight.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout opens July 27.

Henry Cavill: We Need A ‘Super’ Role Model These Days

Dark times call for bright lights, and that’s why some of our best-known superheroes were created during America’s most difficult days. For example, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman in 1938, while the USA was still in the depths of The Great Depression and the events that would cause World War II were unfolding. So, as America struggles with polarizing political and social issues, Henry Cavill — who plays Superman in the new Justice League movie — says we need our superheroes more than ever.

Justice League — which also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck as Batman — opens in theaters this Friday.
