How does one beat a thrilling stunt like scaling the outside of the Burj Khalifa? Well naturally they decide to hold onto the side of a military plane as it takes off and then continue to hold on and try to access a door while in flight. Hello Tom Cruise and his ability to not only do these stunts but have them totally and utterly work with the Ethan Hunt character and the Mission Impossible series. Also…..what a brilliant way to start off Rogue Nation.
I mean yes it turned into the kidnapping of Ethan Hunt, a valiant escape, the shutting down (again) of the IMF which meant the introduction of Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin who you know is going to be great in any movie) which then led to a trip to the Opera for an explosive performance….see what I did there 😉.

And then there were 6. Hello Mission Impossible: Fallout! Hands down my #1 favourite Mission Impossible film to date, and yes I dare say it, by far one of the best actions movies I have ever seen. I love love loved this movie so damn much and I have and will continue to tell anyone and everyone that will listen that they need to see it. Pro Tip…..watch Rogue Nation first if you haven’t seen it because they are the first of all the films to directly link to each other. Though, because the way the story goes, you could still watch it as a stand alone film if you had never seen any of the others. I would judge you, of course, for watching something out of sequence and not treating yourself to all the other great ones that are available but each to their own…..just go watch it dammit!!
