After the Ghost Protocol debacle, the team has stuck to the safe formula from its predecessors, entertaining with good action and decent stunts. It however, does not have any overtly tense moments or cliffhangers as is customary for such films.
Tom Cruise has aged well, carrying the franchise on his shoulders with the help of Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg who provides the laughs and Sean Harris who provides the creeps. Rebecca Ferguson displays the rare combination of being a fatal feminine, with endearing looks and lethal moves.
The film explores several cities and has some very well crafted scenes, showing us different challenges and landscapes. Director Christopher McQuarrie has resuscitated a franchise and left room for a part six as well.
