Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning (2023)

Nominated at this year’s Oscars for both its Visual Effects and Sound, the eighth-biggest box office hit of 2023, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One returns four-time Oscar nominee Tom Cruise to his death-defying role as Impossible Mission Force agent Ethan Hunt. 

His mission, should he choose to accept it, may be his most dangerous yet – to track down a terrifying, all-powerful weapon before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, a deadly race around the globe begins, and Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most.

Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie (Top Gun: Maverick, The Usual Suspects) is once again at the helm of an all-star cast that includes Emmy nominee Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), BAFTA nominee Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead), Critics Choice nominee Rebecca Ferguson (Silo, Dune), Oscar nominee Vanessa Kirby (Napoleon, The Crown) and Golden Globe nominee Hayley Atwell (aka Marvel’s Agent Peggy Carter).

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One has a 94% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is up for Action Movie of the Year at this year’s People’s Choice Awards, with Cruise nominated for both Male Movie Star of the Year and Action Movie Star of the Year.

As Empire Magazine says, “27 (!) years and seven films in, this saga — like its star — looks set to run and run, barely stopping for breath… An endlessly thrilling, continuously propulsive beast, tense from the start: even the quieter, conversational scenes have you on edge. Mission, once again, accomplished.”
