Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

Although most of the "Mission: Impossible" films have avoided references to their predecessors in the series, this one either directly or indirectly references all four of them (aside from each of Ethan's IMF team members having been in at least one earlier film). During the scene early on with Hunley and Brandt speaking to a U.S. Senate subcommittee, Hunley mentions the IMF's break-in at the CIA's Langley headquarters (from the first film) as well as the destruction of the Kremlin (from "Ghost Protocol"). In the following scene, where Ethan is prepped for what appears to be a grisly torture, his rescuer Ilsa palms a handcuff key attached to a rabbit's foot, an apparent reference to the MacGuffin in "M:I-3," which was never shown on screen but referred to as the Rabbit's Foot. Finally, a major scene in the film's third act is set inside a London train station; the first "M:I" movie included a long scene filmed at London's Liverpool Street Station. Read More
