Tom Cruise is one of the few remaining last true action heroes. He will stop at nothing to get the perfect shot, but some of his stunts are far too dangerous.

Love him or hate him you cannot deny that when it comes to action movies there’s no one better than Tom Cruise. Almost 60 years old and the Top Gun actor is still doing his own literal death defying stunts.

If you’ve ever watched a Mission: Impossible movie you’d know that some of the action set pieces are quite epic and very dangerous. You might also know that Tom Cruise insists on doing his own stunts.

The scene where the actor is traversing the outside of a skyscraper with nothing but a single harness keeping him from falling to his death was not CGI, nor did Cruise use a stunt double; he did it himself. Tom Cruise’s crazy stunt caused some commotion with his insurance company as they were unwilling to insure the actor or the film. Cruise criticised the agency for wrongfully terminating their contract.

In spite of the controversy Cruise continues to do his own stunts. A video surfaced a while ago showing how they shot one crazy stunt Mission: Impossible – Fallout movie… and it is truly insane and very awesome.

The 57-year-old actor launches himself over a camera man and out of a cargo plane, known as the Halo jump, wearing nothing but a wing-suit. The side by side video comparison shows the before and after footage with the only difference being the added lightening effects. Everything else was real.

Fortunately for the action movie buffs out there the actor was not harmed during the stunt scene despite a scare earlier this month when we thought Tom Cruise was dead after Stan Australia uploaded his entire film catalogue to their VOD streaming service.

2 more Mission Impossible Movies in production

Not a heck of a lot is known about the upcoming Mission: Impossible movies except for that Tom Cruise will definitely return as Ethan Hunt, that is to say he doesn’t get hurt in the meantime.

Tom Cruise has been a busy little be and has 8 movies releasing in the next few years which include two new Mission: Impossible movies and the highly anticipated Top Gun: Maverick which will hit cinemas June 2020.
