Interesting things about the movie Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1

Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1 is an American action spy film directed, written, and co-produced by Christopher McQuarrie.
With a budget of up to 290 million USD, "Mission Impossible" impresses with breathtaking action scenes through the acting of actor Tom Cruise.

More than 1 billion budget and impressive scenes

According to Deadline, the impressive action sequences staged throughout the 7 Mission Impossible movies cost the producer $1.1 billion in budget. In particular, Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1 took up to 290 million USD to make, nearly 1/3 of the entire series budget.

Compared to part 6, the production team's investment for part 7 has increased by 112 million USD. Along with the growing brand stature, the investment budget for the next movie is always higher than the previous one, which is understandable. Context is also an attractive factor of the film, besides the action part. Through each part of the brand, the audience seems to be traveling through the small screen to beautiful places that they rarely have the opportunity to visit.

In part 7 each action scene of Tom Cruise is associated with Lake Como, Doge's Palace, Saint Mark's Basilica, Ponte dei Conzafelzi bridge, Spanish steps, Preikestolen cliffs (Norway)... The film brings a sense of excitement, full of freedom, bringing the audience to explore a vivid, suspenseful, and dramatic world.

Tom Cruise plays his action scenes in "Mission Impossible"

A special feature of Mission Impossible is that when using a stuntman, Tom Cruise works hard to complete his role, limiting the need for the intervention of special effects or editing techniques.

The most impressive scene in the movie is when Ethan Hunt rides a motorcycle to chase the express train. The character must launch the car from a cliff at high speed, then parachute in the middle of the air. To capture the whole scene, the cameraman also had to parachute after the star to record from behind.

This is the largest action scene ever performed in the history of cinema. The segmentation is done at the cliff with an altitude of over 1.5km. The crew built a model of a 135m long, 10m high slope for Tom Cruise to get the momentum to skydive. If negligence occurs, the actor easily faces the possibility of death.

Tom Cruise once shared that it took him 15 months to come up with the idea and perfect this "top" scene with 536 practice jumps. He also took part in a series of training courses in skydiving and parachuting, learning how to deal with dangerous situations in the air. At the studio, the actor made up to 6 real jumps to get a good shot.

Realism in action sequences is the difference in Mission: Impossible between a series of action movies or superheroes with similar content and dense effects.
