CIA chief Hunley (Baldwin) convinces a Senate committee to disband the IMF (Impossible Mission Force), of which Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is a key member. Hunley argues that the IMF is too reckless. Now on his own, Hunt goes after a shadowy and deadly rogue organization called the Syndicate.
The A400M scenes were shot at RAF Wittering in the UK. See more »
When entering the building with the cooling system, Ethan breaks a glass window with a vibration or sound device. In the close-up before, metal wires for reinforcement are visible in the glass, which also creates the checkerboard pattern. This wire is not destructible in that way. See more »
Low-key the weirdest MI movie simply because of the dialogue and the fact that Ethan Hunt goes completely insane.
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.
