Mission Impossible 7 just set another record for Tom Cruise movies

Tom Cruise can't move without setting some sort of record these days, and Mission Impossible 7 has given the action movie icon yet another career milestone.

Chalk it up, Tom Cruise has another impressive record under his belt. The latest installment of Mission: Impossible has netted the star, responsible for several of the best action movies, his highest Rotten Tomatoes score to date.

At time of writing, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One has an incredible 98% on the review aggregate, based on 190 reviews. You can add The Digital Fix’s own Mission: Impossible 7 review to that mix, where our Jess Cullen writes that “Mission: Impossible has proven itself again as one of the most enjoyable franchises around.”

That’s an impressive peak for Cruise, who seemed to set a career peak last year in Top Gun: Maverick, one of the best movies of 2022 that was a box office success and hit critically. Alas, there’s always another mountain to climb, and Cruise’s need for speed apparently knows no bounds.

As the title says, Mission: Impossible 7 is the first of a two-parter. To what end, we’re not entirely sure. Our breakdown of the Mission: Impossible 7 ending might help you theorize about what’s coming.

The sequel brings in some old favorites and a few new faces to the Mission: Impossible cast. Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Rebecca Ferguson are back helping Cruise’s Ethan Hunt, joined by Pom Klementieff of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast, and MCU icon Hayley Atwell.

Christopher McQuarrie directs, just like several previous sequels. He also produced Top Gun: Maverick, so him and Cruise must both be delighted. You can catch Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One in cinemas now in the UK, and July 12 in the US.
