Matt forgot to mention plot struggles for the characters with MI vs. Hobbs & Shaw:  the MI film series has become infamous with difficult entry/espionage, usually with setbacks that are exciting to watch & wonder how they'll recover. While Michael Giacchino has done extraordinary things with the MI theme, Balfe really excels in this one!
