Let’s start with addressing the question: How many Mission Impossible movies are there? The answer is six. ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ is the most recent addition to the MI series. And guess what? It has achieved a feat that’s very rare in movie business. Despite being sixth film in the series, it is by all accounts, the best (more on this later). It is being hailed as an insta-classic blockbuster (like “Dark Knight” or “Fury Road”) that only comes along only once in a while.
As you all know, it has been more than two decade since the first Mission: Impossible released back in 1996. Since then it has been one of the most successful franchises ever.
Tom Cruise, a bona-fide movie star, carries the weight of Ethan Hunt, film’s lead, with chutzpah and bravery. The most smooth spy on the West side of the Atlantic, Hunt works for an American spy agency called the IMF. It’s got the same ingredients as a Bond film- girls, guns, goons and cars except perhaps Tom Cruise does stunts better. Some of the most memorable stunts in action movie history appears in this franchise — not to mention is difficult to get the catchy the theme music out of your head.
So, while, we hope that Cruise continues making MI series of films, today, we decided to rank all Mission Impossible movies in order from good to best. Which movie is at the top of your list? What Mission Impossible movie is the best? Here you go..
6. Mission: Impossible II (2000)
