An Official Ranking of Every ‘Mission: Impossible’ Movie

Following secret agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team into a world of nonstop intrigue and espionage, these films are known for their incredible stunt work.  

However, the Mission: Impossible franchise is more than just its action sequences. With each film, the stakes get higher and the action more intense. 

With at least two more films on the horizon, it's a great time to either re-familiarize yourself or explore the franchise for the first time. 

Mission: Impossible II (2000)

The film suffers from odd direction choices, including overuse of slow motion and a drawn-out motorcycle chase. That's not to say it is without its charm. 

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

It feels like a shame to rank the 5th film in the series so low because it is an exciting and stylish installment filled with twists and turns and some incredible action sequences. 

Mission: Impossible III (2006)

The only entry in the franchise directed by J.J. Abrams, the acclaimed director kicks the series into high gear with his own distinct form of storytelling.
