I loved this latest chapter in the Mission Impossible series. I didn't know what to expect when Ethan (Cruise) had to fight his way out of prison at the very beginning, but the movie was hard-hitting in every way. The stunts were unbelievable, especially the one where Ethan leaps out of a window without a parachute in the tallest building in the world! Not only was Cruise superb, but the cast was great also. I think Cruise and Brad Bird found the right mix with Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, and Simon Pegg. I expected Ving Rhames to show up in the heat of the action, but he didn't come until the end. The team had Ethan's back though. Great film!
