Story: A terrorist bombing destroys the Kremlin while IMF agent Ethan Hunt is carrying out an undercover operation in Moscow. The Russian government categorizes the attack as “an undeclared act of war,” prompting United States government to initiate a black operation known as “ghost protocol”, disavowing the entire Impossible Mission Force. Hunt and his four-man team are allowed to escape from the government’s custody as part of a plan to enable them to operate outside of their agency’s command structure. However, when the IMF is ambushed, they are forced to operate without any kind of official support in an attempt to locate an intelligence source connected to the Moscow bombing and the attack on the IMF.
Film Production: Filming was done in different places. It features the Burj Khalifa In Dubai which is the tallest building in the world-829.84 m high (2,723 ft).That is almost 1km tall. Now, Tom Cruise has performed a breathtaking stunt on his own dangling from the world’s tallest building about two-thirds of the way up. See references at the bottom of the page. Sample photos show below.

The movie is yet to be released but one thing for sure this movie is worth it to watch. Tom Cruise is well-known of doing his own stunts even though some of it is extremely dangerous he still have the courage to do it. Another thing is approximately 1/4 of the movie duration was shot using IMAX camera. I expect that I would have a great experience watching this film. Tight competition would be Steven Speielberg’s “war horse” and “The Adventures of Tintin”.
