Trivia

Goofs

When the helicopter brings Luther Stickell to Washington DC the "Tail Number" on the Eurocopter 130 does not fit within the US tail number standards. In the US, tail numbers start with a the letter N and then followed by 1 to 5 numbers. In this case the Eurocopter starts with a N and is followed by a dash and an all letter sequence. the United States (N), South Korea (HL), and Japan (JA), the prefix and suffix are connected without a dash and must always have at least 1 number. The BMW SUV also was missing its registration plate. The scene was most likely filmed in the UK. See more »

Low-key the weirdest MI movie simply because of the dialogue and the fact that Ethan Hunt goes completely insane.
15 September 2020 | by mahmusSee all my reviews

I love how it builds upon the event of the previous one and introduces a lot personal stakes for the team, especially with the character of Benji towards the end. Simon Pegg was great comic relief in Ghost Protocol, but here he's the heart and soul of the movie (God I love Benji!).

Rebecca Ferguson is also great, though I will admit it was very frustrating how despite the fact that she kept betraying everyone, Lane just kept giving her more chances. You'd think he'd just kill her by now.

Speaking of Lane, I like him. He's no Philip Seymour Hoffman, but Sean Harris is still one of the most interesting MI villains if solely for the choices he makes with his performance.

Not much else say other than it's a badass action movie and probably the entry where I most care about the story. Not as slickly directed or well paced as the previous one, but it makes up for it. Boy does it make up for it.

Also, the opera scene. Just... the opera scene. Wow.
