Mission Impossible Stunts

Tom Cruise loves risking his life for our entertainment, and no film series has awarded him the opportunity to do this more than Mission: Impossible. In each new Mission, Cruise increases the chances of premature death by throwing himself into dangerous situations. A new Mission: Impossible stunts highlight reel showcases all the crazy stuff Cruise did for Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Bumblebee Decepticons

Bumblebee is being sold as a sweet coming of age story of a teen girl mechanic and a cute yellow car/alien, but make no mistake: the first Transformers spin-off has its fair share of action and conflict. Wherever there’s an Autobot, you know a Decepticon isn’t far behind, and now we have a new image of two of the film’s three robotic baddies sprinting across an open field in all their glory.

Check out the two Bumblebee Decepticons in the photo below. Read More »

About halfway through Mission: Impossible – Fallout, I found myself thinking that I’d happily watch Tom Cruise run for the film’s entire duration. In fairness, that’s pretty much what he does as he reprises the role of Ethan Hunt, but I mean it literally. Tom Cruise runs with the kind of mania that means it’s unsurprising he broke his ankle leaping from building to building while filming Fallout — and then kept running in order to save the take — or that he actually jumped out of a plane at 25,000 feet for another sequence in the movie. He runs so fast that it’s impossible not to go along with him. (And he knows it, too. His Twitter and Instagram bios read: “Running in movies since 1981.”)

That energy sustains almost the entirety of Fallout. Directed by Rogue Nation’s Christopher McQuarrie, Fallout does nothing if not cement Mission: Impossible as the greatest franchise we currently have, and manages it by leaning fully into the near-demented earnestness given tangible shape in Cruise’s running. It hurtles along at such a breakneck speed that it might as well combust, and that even talking about it almost feels like spoiling it, as the temptation is to name every insane set piece in simple awe.

Mission: Impossible Franchise

Talk about impossible: somehow, Mission: Impossible has blossomed into the best modern-day action franchise. Since 1996, Tom Cruise has been inviting audiences along as he defies the odds, risks his life, runs like hell, and delivers increasingly entertaining adventures. Unlike most franchises, Mission: Impossible has generally improved with each subsequent entry. Now, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is ready to draw us in once again.

Before the film arrives, we’ve decided to accept the most dangerous mission of all: a journey through the entire Mission: Impossible franchise in an attempt to learn what makes it tick.
