The Mission Impossible franchise unveils a heart-pounding new chapter. Film critic Reggie Ponder shares his thoughts.

Tom Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt in the thrilling first installment of the epic conclusion to the Mission Impossible franchise: Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1.

The cast includes Hayley Atwell as Grace, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, Ving Rhames as Luther Stickwell, Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Pom Klementieff as Paris, and Esai Morales as Gabriel.
