Your mission should you decide to accept it is to watch and be entertained by this installment of the Mission Impossible series. The stunts are outlandish and unbelievable but that is the point. It is a Mission Impossible movie. The scenes with Ethan Hunt scaling the world's tallest building in Dubai were great. The ending leaves open the possibility of future movies.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

My favorite MI of them all. Just when you thought it would be impossible to top Mission Impossible, Tom Cruise and his team do it again. Great action sequences, a climbing shot you have to see -- gripping, edge of your seat videography -- and an interesting story line too.

Ok, usually I don't think of myself as an action movie kind of soul, but I knew I wanted to see this as soon as I saw the preview, and I wasn't let down. The action sequences, already inventive (the chase scene through the dust storm was especially well-done) are made even more amazing by the knowledge that Mr. Tom Cruise does his own stunts. I'm assuming they didn't just let him loose on the side of a skyscraper without some sort of unseen rigging, but even so... very fun to watch. A fast story, definitely to be watched on the biggest screen you can. Good humor by Simon Pegg thrown in from time to time, a very likeable cast with all their own backstories, and even a hint or two of romance. Like many others have commented before me, whatever Tom Cruise's personal life may be, he's still an impressive actor. I'm just going to go ahead and add here that he's still quite handsome, as well.

It's entertainment, no more no less, but it certainly does entertain. Yes, I'd like more story, more suspense, more depth. I'll have to find all that elsewhere. We know Tom Cruise won't plunge to his death (in a completed and released movie) from that 160-story building; but it is fun to watch, knowing that Cruise does his own stunts. More, please.

Casting was good, Happy to see other parts of the globe, especially since they are way out of my price range, but the story line? There was no suspense, no mystery, great stunts but hardly any flash. I miss the original IMF.

Just a very well written, acted, and directed action movie with some amazing chase, fight, and spy scenes. Certainly you have to suspend your disbelief in some of the crazy gadgets and such (like having that train car available) but that's most of the fun for the MI movies. Great cast too. Good mix of humor and action and ties well into the other movies but is still great as a stand alone. Can't wait for another one now!

Tom Cruise is getting a little long in the tooth for this kind of foolishness.

Okay, so Tom Cruise has a bad reputation as being some radical Church of Scientology nutjob. So knowing that, why do some negative commenters who insult him ("boring", "demented") watch his movies? I mean, seriously, lol, if you don't like the man, why? I don't like the Kardashian creatures, so, --duh-- I. Don't. Watch. Them. WHATEVER his personal beliefs are, I don't care. I give credit where credit is due. He's a hell of an entertainer, as is courageously displayed here, in the sequence where Ethan Hunt scales the outside of the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai. Cruise performed the stunt HIMSELF, without the use of a stunt double. The Burj Khalifa tower is the tallest building in the world, at 2716.5 feet, more than 160 stories. This movie, as many in the spy/thriller genre are, is heavy on action, light on deep thought, and somewhat predictable. But it also made $693 million at the box office worldwide, so "Mr. Boring and Demented" must be doing something right. For the dedication Cruise exhibits to his craft, and just plain b*lls, (and also the hotness of Paula Patton - rrRROWWRR!!), I give this flick FIVE STARS.

Benji Dunn (explaining Ethan's 'skyscraper climbing' gloves): "Okay, now remember, it's a rollllling off motion that disengages the bond. When the meter is blue, that's full adhesion. Easy way to remember: 'blue is glue'." Ethan Hunt: "And when it's red?" Benji Dunn: "Dead."
