As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
Two years after Ethan Hunt had successfully captured Solomon Lane, the remnants of the Syndicate have reformed into another organization called the Apostles. Under the leadership of a mysterious fundamentalist known only as John Lark, the organization is planning on acquiring three plutonium cores. Ethan and his team are sent to Berlin to intercept them, but the mission fails when Ethan saves Luther and the Apostles escape with the plutonium. With CIA agent August Walker joining the team, Ethan and his allies must now find the plutonium cores before it's too late.Written by
Another scene that was featured in the trailer but is missing from the theatrical cut of the film, is a scene that takes place in a snowy setting, showing Ethan Hunt and his team discovering abandoned trucks with dead soldiers inside and around them, it then shows Ethan approaching a bunker door, about to enter with his gun drawn.

It doesn't deserve THIS MUCH positiveness, both from the critics and the audience
Don't get me wrong, the movie is not bad. But it's not as good as critics claimed to be either.
Metacritic critics gave this movie 86/100 score(based on 59 critics). RT critics gave this movie 8.4 rating(with 263 reviews, 7 of them rotten = %97). Metacritic critics gave TDK 82/100 score(based on 39 critics). RT critics gave TDK 8.6 rating(with 329 reviews, 20 of them rotten = %94). I know i look like a random dude who criticizes these so called critics. But how can they rate TDK so low, and this movie so high?
First of all, there are needless plot twists that you can not understand. Why did Erica Sloan(Angela Bassett) turn against IMF? What triggered her? Her reasons is just not enough. How did August Walker's(Henry Cavill) men infiltrate Sloan's team? We don't know much about it. They don't tell us. Sure, It was pretty cool, but my immersion was ruined, and it could have been written more subtle. Second of all, the elevator scene. Okay, that scene was pretty essential for the movie. August Walker(Cavill) pulls a picture of Ethan's ex-wife to him(clearly he carries it all the time) and says this and that will happen, but the reason why he didn't kill Ethan is his evil friend got some pointless plan for him after more than half of the population is dead. But wait, 30 minutes after that scene, Walker shoots to kill Ethan with a machine gun without thinking his friend's plan. They tucked a weak reason in the movie so that they could just ignore it and make a fool of the audience. Thirdly, Solomon Lane, a pretty genius guy, pulls his enemies to their objective and fights with them face to face. That's very cool but why? Why did he aggro'd them? This writing could have been much much better. They could have given him more clever things to do. They could have portrayed him more clever. Fourthly, a countdown. Suprise, surprise. I really wonder why evil people put a countdown on these things. Just to tense the audience? I really don't know. Guess what happened in the end. The good guys lost and the bad guys win. Billions are dead. That was totally unexpected and hard to guessed. But let's look on the bright side. They executed that last shot perfectly. The sunset almost had me for a second there. Finally, the ending. You don't leave the theater with ''wow'', ''holy jesus'' expressions. Because they've already ended the movie before the end. Sure, it has a deserved and a great dark/grim ending which every plot and dialogue constantly instigated throughout the movie. But you didn't get a big feeling like you did get after the TDK ended, you didn't carried away. Or, you didn't sit like you did sit after the Infinity War ended.
Overall the movie is not bad. Some cliches -other than that countdown thing- were involved but you really don't care that much. Stunts were unreal, Tom Cruise really killed it this time. There was no forced romantic subplot, which was nice for me. Action scenes holds up. Set-pieces were great. The cinematography was very satisfying at times. The sound editing was good. The acting was good. The pace was good. It's just that the writing could have been much more in-depth. Or maybe it's just me. After seeing that god tier reviews from the critics, i expected something perfect. Of course I'm not saying it was bad. I'm just trying to point it out that this movie doesn't deserve to be this close to ''The Dark Knight'' at the rating or on the praising matters. The dialogues are not even close to the TDK's level. I guess critics don't care about these small points.
