It’s been reported in the media that the actor Tom Cruise has a proclivity to do himself stunts. The actor is known for putting himself into his roles full of his energy, including flying his own F-18 fighter jet in “Maverick: Top Gun 2,” as reported by IndieWire. According to Men’s Journal, in the “Mission Impossible” series of films, Cruise is the only actor. The cruise was for a climb up the formation of Dead Horse Point, Utah in the film “Mission Impossible 2” and also for “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” with the help of the harness he used to hang off his side on Burj Khalifa. Burj Khalifa is a Dubai building that, according to Skyscraper Center it is the world’s highest structure. These stunts are only two of the numerous thrilling feats of death Cruise has been involved in throughout his lengthy career.
The experience gained from stunts certainly has given Cruise the ability to deal with potential dangers. Even the most prepared actor could be faced with unanticipated dangers on the scene. While filming the forthcoming “Mission Impossible” sequel, “Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One,” Cruise was required to do a stunt that put him close to danger than he’s seen in a long time. The stunt that nearly cost him his life? out?
One risky Dead Reckoning stunt had Cruised in a state of anxiety
In an interview in Empire Online, Cruise, when in character as Ethan Hunt, was required to steer a motorbike over a cliff to perform the stunt in “Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1.” Hunt, as well as Cruise alike, were protected from a long hard fall with the parachute. The actor told the publication that he had been practicing the stunt for several many months but had been anxious about whether the stunt was executed properly.
“If the wind were too strong enough, it might cause me to fall out of the way,” He explained. “The helicopter that was filming the stunt] created an issue because I wanted to avoid crashing down the ramp at the top of my speed only to be struck by stones. In the event that I exited in a strange manner, we didn’t know what would transpire with the bike. I was given about six seconds when I left the ramp to go to the chute. I didn’t want to be stuck on the bike. If I do, it’s not going well.”
The incident is called by Empire as being among the riskiest stunts that Cruise has ever done as well as among the most hazardous ever performed within “Mission Impossible” film history. For everyone that was involved, Cruise clearly survived to share the story of the extremely dangerous incident which viewers can view briefly in the “Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One” trailer.
He hasn’t emerged from his MI-related stunts without injury.
Cruise hasn’t always been fortunate enough to leave the “Mission Impossible” stunts unharmed. Although he’s not suffered any serious illness, however, he’s probably injured in the name of authenticity on screen.
In the Daily Mail’s report of the episode from April 2021 on “The Graham Norton Show,” Cruise spoke about breaking his ankle during the stunt for “Mission Impossible Fallout” in the year 2018. The actor’s bones broke when it was slammed into the wall of a building. According to Men’s Journal, he also suffered a ruptured labrum during the filming of the cliff-climbing scene for “Mission Impossible 2.”
Despite this injury, Cruise has not been discouraged from doing himself in his stunts. Cruise continued to perform all the stunts for “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.” It’s apparent that he’s carried out certain of his own stunts in “Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One,” but there’s no word about how much he contributed to the film. Fans of the series will need to check out the movie when it debuts in 2023 to learn more.
