Parts of it are every bit as world-class as everyone's saying, but Fallout is, in the end, only a good M:I movie. That means it's great by regular movie standards, and it does amazing things the series has never done before (which itself is in the best tradition of its best forebears); but it's also a Mission: Impossible that sometimes almost drops down to "boring," and that's a sin this franchise has never committed.
