“Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” is Now Available to Stream
The globe-trotting pyrotechnics and death-defying stunts of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One are now available for your viewing pleasure while seated comfortably on your couch. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie and star Tom Cruise’s latest lunatic mission is available to stream on Prime Video ($19.99). Dead Reckoning Part One finds Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and his IMF team tracking an A.I.-powered weapon called “The Entity” that could lead to global chaos if it ends up in the wrong hands. The film includes a desert shootout in Abu Dhabi, a thrilling car chase in a redoubtable yellow Fiat in Rome, and that wild motorcycle stunt in which Cruise launched himself off a 4,000-foot cliff, while on a motorcycle, into a ravine before opening a parachute to land atop a moving train. He did this seven times while filming the movie.
For those of you who not only missed the latest installment but find yourself hopelessly out of date with the entire franchise, you can stream all previous six Mission: Impossible movies on Paramount+.
Dead Reckoning Part One features Cruise and his usual band of merry pranksters/world savers—Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, and Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust. Vanessa Kirby also returns as the mysterious, morally flexible White Widow. Newcomers include Hayley Atwell as Grace, Esai Morales as Gabriel, Pom Klementieff as Paris, Henry Czenry as Kittridge, Greg Tarzan Davis as Degas, and Shea Whigham as Briggs.
Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One is, as its title makes clear, one part of a two-part epic. Part Two was shot concurrently and is due in theaters on June 28, 2024.
