The world is in danger yet again, after a mission of the IMF itself has gone terribly wrong. Ethan Hunt decides to repair the damage, no matter how risky his life gets. Unfortunately, CIA also has doubts about his loyalty. His former allies are constantly keeping an eye on him, while he struggles to prevent a catastrophe that could destroy the entire world. Benji trusts him, as they both have worked together for years. This time around, he is sure that Ethan would not let anyone down, and the mission would not remain “impossible”.
After the Burj Khalifa sequence, it’s this helicopter sequence that will definitely bring a shiver to the audience. Apart from it, there are numerous chases and rooftop races which will keep you hooked on your seats. The actor might have aged, but he has pushed his limits once again, for an applaudable performance. The plot is quite cleverly written and Cruise, one of the best actors on this planet, can show his physical and emotional vulnerability between action-packed scenes. However, the downside is that his aging looks won’t justify his stunts and stamina, and it would be shocking to watch him climb a rock and run on the streets of London. You would be reminded repeatedly how his stuntman did a daring job!
The cinematic experience is better than most of the movies in the entire series. Alec Baldwin marks his sharp presence for a brief amount of time. The gritty fist fights which are choreographed skilfully, along with ever-so-brilliant direction by Christopher McQuarrie, make the movie a must watch.
