Storyline

Two years after Ethan Hunt had successfully captured Solomon Lane, the remnants of the Syndicate have reformed into another organization called the Apostles. Under the leadership of a mysterious fundamentalist known only as John Lark, the organization is planning on acquiring three plutonium cores. Ethan and his team are sent to Berlin to intercept them, but the mission fails when Ethan saves Luther and the Apostles escape with the plutonium. With CIA agent August Walker joining the team, Ethan and his allies must now find the plutonium cores before it's too late. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Strongest instalment in the franchise
8 November 2020 | by sidneyleeberthierSee all my reviews

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.
