As students at the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
Super-spy Ethan Hunt has retired from active duty to train new IMF agents. But he is called back into action to confront the toughest villain he's ever faced - Owen Davian, an international weapons and information provider with no remorse and no conscience. Hunt assembles his team: his old friend Luther Strickell, transportation expert Declan, and background operative Zhen. They are to rescue one of his very own trainees, Lindsey who was kidnapped while on a surveillance detail of Davian. It soon becomes evident that Davian is well-protected, well-connected, and downright malicious. This forces Hunt to extend his journey back into the field in order to rescue his wife, Julia, and uncover IMF double agents in the process. Written by
During Brassel's debrief, he says that Owen Davian is invisible in terms of "Wells, not Ellison." H.G. Wells wrote "The Invisible Man" (1897) in which the title character is a scientist who can make himself physically invisible. Ralph Ellison wrote "Invisible Man" (1952) in which the main character, an African-American, considers himself a member of a socially invisible minority. See more »
When Ethan is in China to retrieve the Rabbit's Foot, the four guards on top of the roof clearly communicate and visually see each other. When sliding down the roof he only shoots two of the guards, leaving the other two alone. These guards would clearly see the two fallen guards and set off the alarm right away. See more »
We put an explosive charge in your head. Does that sound familiar?

Well, this was straight to the point. Finally Hollywood seems to be over their boring (hoping for Oscar) drama movies. Good old Cruise returning as Ethan Hunt is what you will see here. Action consisting of explosions, clever bombs, helicopter chases, flashbacks to True Lies without spoiling too much, evil villains, heartbreaking stunts and a pretty okay script is what you can expect.
Some predictable scenes, but the fast paced action made the effort worth it with some very welcome ideas. You also got to love the scenery. Berlin, Vatikan and China is refreshing to see.
007 look out, hard to match this one!
Long time since I had such fun at the cinema. 9/10!
