Screenwriter and director Christopher McQuarrie wanted the film's climactic fight scene to take place on the edge of a cliff, but they could not find such a cliff in New Zealand. Eventually the team found Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) in Norway. It was a very difficult place to film due to the extreme weather shifts. One time when the crew was scouting the location, the wind was so strong that they had to crawl to avoid being blown over the edge. See more »
In the final helicopter chase scene, Hunt and Walker depart from a village in Kashmir and in a few minutes end up in Norwegian fjords (more than 5000 km away), clinging to the cliff of Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), the iconic mountain plateau in Norway. The cliff is one of the country's most popular tourist attractions and has been named one of the world's most spectacular viewpoints by Lonely Planet, therefore can be easily recognized. See more »

This is the strongest instalment in the franchise. The reason for this? It's the first M:I film to become self-aware, taking into account Hunt/Cruise's penchant for dangerous stunts, as well as his advancing age. What we get is a more personal story about the protagonist's 'killer' job, his allies and his life.
