One of the most notable Cruise titles available on Netflix is the fourth Mission Impossible movie.
Ghost Protocol was released in 2011 and was written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec and directed by Brad Bird. Cruise reprized the role of Impossible Missions Force agent Ethan Hunt for another over-the-top spy thriller. This time, he and a team of experts have tracked down a terrorist with access to Russian nuclear launch codes, but it’s too late to stop him from bombing the Kremlin. Now implicated in the bombing, the US government completely disavows the IMF, enacting a “ghost protocol” that leaves Hunt’s team without resources or backups.
