When a movie starts with Tom Cruise hanging outside a plane, one expects the movie to be a bat-shit crazy, out-of-the-world action filled roller-coaster (NOT A SPOILER BTW)! Sadly, this movie does that, only in parts.
Tom Cruise, as usual, is an action god. Simon Pegg is hilarious as the sarcastic nerd, Renner and Baldwin are good in their respective roles. Special mention to Rebecca Ferguson. She is the perfect partner for Tom Cruise. She is the perfect Bond girl Bond movies never had!
Love it for Tom, Rebecca and those 3 action sequences. Everything besides that is all mediocre. Not worthy of all the hype!
To conclude, this is how I’d rate the MI series: 1 > 2 > 3 > 5 > 4
