Elevator Pitch A villain obtains the launch codes for the Russian missile system and blows up the Kremlin, managing to blame Ethan for the event and getting IMF shut down. The four agents, now on their own, must run the criminals to earth and recover the codes to prevent a global conflict taking place.
Content Scenes in a Russian prison, the Kremlin then major set pieces in Dubai and Mumbai. The team make use of really ingenious special (and impossible) equipment and there is lots of tension as the hero hangs from buildings, chases the villains and even has a conflict in an automatic car park. No drinking drugs or nudity.
A View This time they did not resort to the rubber faces, which was a relief, and I really enjoyed it as we went from one tense scene to another. Well liked by the critics for a change and it made a lot of money, so a watch if you like that sort of thing.
