The one thing fans keep coming up for the Mission: Impossible
series since 1996 is its pure entertainment value which the movie
offers to its audience, and if we personify all MI successes to one
man, then it has to be Tom Cruise all the way.
Tom Cruise, who is already in the early 50s likes to perform all
the death defying stunts by his own without any technological
support or body double. And likewise, or the Mission: Impossible 6,
Tom Cruise has gone all the way by training for almost a year to
pull off a particular stunt in the film.
CEO of Skydance Media David Ellison, has praised Tom's effort
and said Tom wants to keep the stunts original as far as
"Tom's entire mantra for hanging on the side of the Burj Khalifa
or the A380 or literally holding your breath for six minutes
underwater to do the Taurus sequence is, in a world of massive
visual effects, (is doing it live)." Said Ellison.
"He said the audience can tell when it's you on a green screen
or when you're actually doing it live. And the tension, because the
stunt is real, actually puts the audience where Ethan Hunt is where
they are in the movie." Added Ellison.
"He said that's why he does it; it's all about entertaining an
audience and it makes the movie better." Ellison concluded.
