As always, thanks for the review Jon!

I actually do not own any of the MI movies on BR - I think I will pick them all up and do an MI marathon ending with this one!

I enjoyed this one in the theaters and can't wait to give it a run at home. Unfortunately, it most likely won't happen until this weekend.

I do not own any of the MI films either. I also think this was the best of the series.

This was probably one of the most entertaining movies I've ever seen in the theater, and this Blu-Ray recreates it well (minus the 70 ft screen). The visuals are still impressive and the sound mix is exceptional. Personally I think the LFE is a bit overdone in a few places, but it still put a smile on my face. Rydstrom sure picked a good movie to end his 8 year retirement from sound design

I read elsewhere that it really was Tom Cruise scaling the tallest building in the world in the movie, and not a stunt double. Secured by cables or not, that's pretty amazing in of itself if true.

Ozar, it was definitely him. If you watch the extras accompanying this release, they talk about it quite a bit. Definitely is amazing!

jdent, I don't think the LFE was anymore overdone than a movie like 'The Incredibles'. Certainly catches your attention!

Yeah, thanks... I've not seen the extras yet but hope to watch them soon. Cruise seems like he may be getting a little old for some of these stunts, but he might be in better shape than he appears to be. I've also read that Jeremy Renner was put in the movie so that he can take Cruise's place as the lead agent in the MI films once Cruise decides he's had enough. From what I saw of Renner's work in this movie, he should do fine as the lead.

Watched it and will soon own it. Excellent movie and by far the best of the franchise. Jeremy Renner was an excellent addition to the cast.
