Okay, here we go to the un-numbered M:I sequels. This one was directed by The Iron Giant's Brad Bird. The intro credits are the only clue as to Bird's animation roots. The rest is high energy chases, escapes and heists. The plot and characterization are irrelevant and the real reason to watch is the crazy, non-apparent-CGI stuntwork. Tom Cruise hanging from Burj Khalifa is this installment's crazy Tom Cruise moment.
