Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One – Movie Review

The latest Mission: Impossible movie continues to take stunts to new heights.

The Mission: Impossible film series is a beloved collection of action movies starring Tom Cruise. It has captivated audiences worldwide since its birth as a blockbuster in 1996. The franchise is known for its heart-pounding stunts, and Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt. He plays a skilled and resourceful secret agent who faces nearly impossible missions while battling powerful enemies and navigating complex webs of deception in each installment. The franchise blends suspense, adrenaline-fueled action sequences, and unexpected twists to push the boundaries of the spy genre, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats and eagerly anticipating the next thrilling adventure. Now a seventh film, Dead Reckoning Part One, is set to hit theaters on July 12th, 2023.


Ethan Hunt and his IMF team are on their most risky mission yet. Their objective is to locate a new weapon that poses a threat to all of humanity before it lands in the wrong hands. The future is at stake, and the world’s fate rests in their hands. However, dark forces from Ethan’s past are closing in, making the race around the globe even more lethal. In the face of a powerful, enigmatic foe, Ethan must prioritize his mission above all else, even the lives of his loved ones.

The Mission: Impossible series is renowned for its exceptional movies that feature practical effects, impressive action scenes, and stunts. The latest installment is no exception and sets the stage for another thrilling adventure. It’s no secret that Cruise is passionate about creating and performing stunts and always delivers a memorable experience. While I may forget the plot, I’ll never forget the heart-stopping scenes Cruise skillfully pulls off.

Cruise is exceptional as Ethan Hunt in the Mission Impossible franchise. He has a great passion for this series as he delivers yet another successful movie after last year’s Top Gun: Maverick. He has a talent for creating an exciting and thrilling experience for the audience. The story is well-crafted, with a perfect balance of humor and emotional moments, making it a 2-hour and 30-minute adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Hayley Atwell and Pom Klementieff are impressive new additions to this film series, stealing the scene with their strong and resilient performances. They are the true standout of this film, which expertly explores the dangers of AI and ranks among the best installments in the franchise.


I give Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One 4.5 out of 5 stars. It offers a truly exhilarating cinematic experience that you won’t want to miss, especially in IMAX. Tom Cruise once again delivers outstanding blockbuster entertainment, and Hayley Atwell’s performance in this latest installment is simply outstanding. I’m eagerly looking forward to the release of PART TWO!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
