Tom Cruise blockbuster has taken Netflix by storm – exactly one year after suffering a serious flop at the box office. 

Despite receiving positive reviews following its release in June 2023, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning was branded as the ‘least commercially successful Mission: Impossible film over the past decade’ by MovieWeb.com at the time.

But now, the flick has had a surprising resurgence on Netflix, landing on the streaming platform’s Global Top 10 list last week.

According to Screenrant, the movie was viewed 5.6 million times from June 10 to June 16, earning it the third spot on the chart, under Four Brothers and Hit Man.

The action film – which also starred Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Vanessa Kirby – follows agent Ethan Hunt on a new adventure throughout the Arabian desert.

While it grossed $567 million at the box office, Variety estimated five weeks after it premiered that it was set to lose around $100 million thanks to high production costs and marketing expenditures.

It had a reported budget of $291.6 million, making it one of the most expensive films ever made. 

In comparison, Barbie, which was out around the same time, made $1.4 billion at the box office, while Oppenheimer earned $953.8 million.

In addition, the previous Mission: Impossible film, entitled Fallout, took home $786 million in ticket sales when it came out in 2018. 

Even so, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning received raving reviews from fans and critics alike.

It has a high score of 96 per cent from critics and 94 per cent from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes

‘It’s an unforgettable cinematic experience that will leave you breathless,’ wrote one reviewer on the site. ‘This is why we go to the movies.’

‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning is the summer blockbuster you’ve been waiting on,’ said someone else.

‘Once again, Cruise delivers a great cast to real locations, amid beautifully crafted action sets.’

‘Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie continue to push the boundaries of daredevil blockbuster filmmaking,’ gushed another person. 

Tom, 61, is currently in the midst of filming the eighth instalment to the Mission: Impossible franchise, which will directly follow the events of Dead Reckoning.
