10. "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (2011)

The right to watch the biggest movie star in the world scale the tallest skyscraper in the world should be enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. The most recent Mission: Impossible movie is the most Mission: Impossible-iest of them all: Over the top beyond your wildest dreams, and yet somehow strangely nonchalant. Cruise reprises his role as super-agent Ethan Hunt, but there's a compelling jadedness to him this time, which sort of adds to the lunacy of this film. It's the closest any Tom Cruise film has come to being a cartoon – quite appropriate, as this was the first live-action film made by veteran animation director Brad Bird (The Incredibles).
