With six action-packed installments, what do you think is the best Mission: Impossible movie? The film series got started back in 1996, and with the release of 2018's Mission: Impossible - Fallout, that's over 20 years of Ethan Hunt fighting off rogue agents and performing thrilling, death-defying stunts. While Hunt may have plenty of fight left in him for another mission, the list below features all the Mission: Impossible movies ranked by you fans.

Though the first Mission: Impossible started what's become one of the top movie franchises, the installments to follow always take things up a notch—bringing even more action and suspense than the last. However, scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat don't make or break a film. Did Tom Cruise outdo himself with Ghost Protocol, getting himself imprisoned, only to slyly slip away as we expect Ethan Hunt would? Or was 2015's Rogue Nation the greatest Mission: Impossible film? That's up to you decide.

Vote up your favorites from the list of Mission: Impossible movies below to help decide just which film is best of the series. If you still can't get enough of the franchise, check out some Mission: Impossible trivia.
