Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join us as we revisit the previous films in the Mission: Impossible series leading up to the release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Along the way we examine the franchise’s ties to the trajectory of Tom Cruise’s career and the various directors that he has worked with over the years. Topics of discussion include Tom Cruise performing his own stunts, John Woo’s so-called ballet of bullets, early on-screen depictions of the internet plus the various gadgets of the series and their real-world practicality. So is M:I 2 just a thinly-veiled rip-off of The Mask of Zorro? Is the introduction of Ethan Hunt’s wife in M:I 3 a brilliant move or a real bummer? Does the plot of the first movie actually make any sense? Grab the latest premium podcast below before it self-destructs.
