The Guardian’s reviewer said that this movie made him a believer in the franchise while he was “agnostic and a nay-sayer about M: I”.

Check out some of the reviews:

That McQuarrie and Cruise are eventually able to get this hurtling, heavy plane level and pull off a rewarding climax is a testament to the fierceness of their commitment to these projects.

What better mission could there be this summer other than witnessing our perpetual cinematic maverick deliver yet another full-scale cinematic experience? Should you choose to accept it, of course.


Dead Reckoning Part One may not be the best movie in the Mission: Impossible franchise. but this extravagantly entertaining Dolby soap opera nails what the Mission: Impossible franchise does best.


While it can’t eclipse what came before… McQuarrie delivers a formidable concept and several hall-of-fame set-pieces while somehow also managing to tie the storylines back into these movies’ core mythology.


The strong cast, high-gloss production values and constant wow factor of the action offer plenty of distraction from the storytelling deficiencies.
