Setting a new bar for exhilarating escapist adventure, the best and most thrilling of the IMF movies finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) posing as a terrorist to buy plutonium before MI6 rogue agent Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) can enact his psycho doomsday scenario. The densely plotted story interconnects with several past plot threads, with myriad assassins and former allies jostling for attention, while events speed towards the nuclear-countdown climax. But what audiences really want to see is Cruise's sensational stuntwork, and the veteran action man doesn't disappoint, leading car and motorbike chases through Paris, racing over London rooftops and, in what must be one of the most spectacular cliffhangers ever, a helicopter battle over mountain terrain - an extraordinary sequence that ratchets tension into the stratosphere. This sixth episode in the series is an explosive and awe-inspiringly ambitious espionage extravaganza that you'll find impossible to resist.

Summary
