Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning:Part One

5 December 2023: 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

2022 – Certificate 12

– Mission Impossible:Dead Reckoning Part One –

Mainstream Action Film

Is the past catching up with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise)?

“Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning” returns former IMF director Eugene Kittridge to Ethan’s life with a new mission. Kittridge informs Hunt that there’s essentially a rogue A.I. in the world that superpowers are battling to control. The A.I. can be manipulated with a key split into two halves. One of those halves is about to be sold on the black market, and so Ethan and his team—including returning characters Luther(Ving Rhames) and Benji (Simon Pegg)—have to not just intercept the key but discern its purpose. The key only matters if IMF can figure out where and how to use it.

But all sorts of pesky do-gooders and do-badders are on Ethan’s tail and so begins a sprawling cat and mouse game, with some ingenious twists on the series’ tropes.

Cruise, credited by Stephen Spielberg with “saving Hollywood’s ass” after Covid, with Top Gun: Maverick, has pulled off another miracle.

Rotten Tomatoes

With world-threatening stakes and epic set pieces to match that massive title, “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” proves this is still a franchise you should choose to accept.  With a terrific cast and some beautifully shot stunts, “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” might be the best action movie of the year.

Roger Ebert

Some of the overcooked dialogue about the importance of this particular mission gets repetitive, but then McQuarrie and his team will reveal some stunningly conceived action sequence that makes all the spy-speak tolerable.

“Dead Reckoning Part One” prioritizes movement—trains, cars, Ethan’s legs-. and McQuarrie knows how to use it sparingly to make an action film that both feels modern and old-fashioned at the same time. ,,,,,,,,,,. The action here is so wonderfully choreographed.

“Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” is just incredibly fun. It feels half its length and contains enough memorable action sequences for some entire franchises. Will Cruise save the blockbuster experience again? Maybe.


Seven films in and nothing about MI, from the star’s incredible stunt skills to the silly-serious tone, is showing any sign of slowing down

In the past I have been agnostic and a naysayer about M:I, but the pure fun involved in this film, its silly-serious alchemy, and the way the franchise seems to strain at something crazily bigger with every film, as opposed to just winding down, is something to wonder at.


“Dead Reckoning Part One” is further testament to just how much director and star are in tune, travelling the world together in search of bigger thrills, egging each other on with kamikaze nerve………….

This one’s an endlessly thrilling, continuously propulsive beast, tense from the start: even the quieter, conversational scenes have you on edge. Mission, once again, accomplished.

The Independent

You will leave “Dead Reckoning” the same way you always do: wondering how Cruise could possibly outdo himself in the next one – until, inevitably, he does.
