How Tom Cruise Pulled Off 8 Amazing Stunts | Movies Insider

Tom Cruise is perhaps most famous for doing almost all of his own stunts, which have intensified throughout his career. In the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, he climbed part of a 2,000-foot cliff in "Mission: Impossible 2" and then climbed 1,700 feet up the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, in "Ghost Protocol." In "Rogue Nation," Cruise did not one, but two dangerous stunts. First, he hung off the side of a plane that took him up 1,000 feet in the air. He then had to hold his breath underwater for about six minutes, a stunt that required military-style preparation. In "Fallout," he jumped 25,000 feet out of a plane and filmed a helicopter stunt that required him to get 2,000 hours of training and learn how to do a 360-degree corkscrew dive. Outside the "Mission" franchise, he filmed a scene on a real zero-gravity plane instead of a soundstage in "The Mummy" and learned how to do action in an 85-pound suit in "Edge of Tomorrow." He is soon set to return to one of his most iconic roles in "Top Gun: Maverick."

“The Mummy” Is Now Available On Demand.

Tom cruise is not an actor, he's an adventurerer. Movies are just an excuse he uses for doing the crazy things he wants to do.
Can we talk

I used to think that Tom Cruise was just another one of those pretty boy actors that got by because of his looks. This guy does stuff that would make Navy SEALs proud. My respect for him has grown a hundredfold He truly is one of my favorite actors and deserves all the money and acclaim that he has earned

Lets face it Cruise has some of the biggest balls when it comes to action flicks and doing his own stunts. Respect. Cant wait for Top Gun...
Tom Cruise's physical abilities give me the impression that most other actors aren't really actors anymore. This is probably why star power fades for most of them after just a couple of years, but in Tom's case his longevity says it all. His movies also build a good case against the excessive CGI fests polluting so many modern films.

Tom Cruise: it's either I die or I did it

Just finished watching Mission Impossible 6 last night. That final sequence with the helicopters and mountain ledge was unbelievable. I kept saying to myself this crap is impossible, then I reminded myself that the word impossible is actually in the movie title. He is obviously in some sort of marvelous condition to be able to do the stuff he does.
I really respect Tom Cruise. The way he just does everything in the movie is a legend. When all the actors usually use CG only "pretend" that they are doing a stunt, Tom does it himself. Not only his courage, but his acting skills are awesome. I'm really happy that we got to see him in all these movies and films.
Jackie Chan: "Finally a worthy opponent!"
Young Skywalker
Young Skywalker:
It's really awesome seeing companies help each other out to make great movies. Like NASA for example, letting them readjust the plane to a cargo plane in the ZERO-G aircraft

I was wondering all this days and asking my self why is this gentleman so extremely famous and loved by million’s.

Now I came and realized that he really deserved to be on top of all time…

My 10000 likes to him.

Real hero a real actor a real man.
Everyone: Wow Tom Cruise is so cool, he jumps out of planes and holds onto them!
The Cameraman: aight
Mahbub Memories
Mahbub Memories:
The quote "Thanks to the cameraman who risked his life to get the shot" is perfectly true for Tom Cruise's movie.
so. what i am getting from this is that if the world was actually threatened by a Super Villain. Tom Cruise would absolutely be able to save the day.

Tom Cruise is without doubt the greatest action star of the last 30 years. Hats off to him for his unparalleled efforts to deliver authentic and outstanding performances. Bravo Mr. Cruise! 👏🏼👍🏼

Tom Cruise is one of a kind for real, amazing talent and commitment to his craft, hopefully the younger generations of new actors will learn from him

La escena del avión cargo despegando es aterradora, especialmente recordando a los afganos que se treparon al avión del mismo tipo y uno de ellos cayó desde lo alto y de seguro que perió la vida. Tom Cruise...... uno de los mejores ACTORES en Hollywood!!.
I tend to not want to like Tom Cruise, but you gotta respect his dedication to his craft.
Robert DeKiero
Robert DeKiero:
Some props for the cameramen. The guy skydiving AND filming Tom Cruise mid flight....madness!
now I'm starting to wonder if mission impossible is just based of tom cruise's life experiences
Devin Minar
Devin Minar:
Let's get this correct, Insider. Tom Cruise got a back seat ride in a Tomcat in Top Gun and in a Super Hornet for the new movie. And in the original Top gun all the up close shots of the pilots and Rios were just a fuselage in a soundstage.
Bruce Poindexter
Bruce Poindexter:
This is why he is my favorite actor! Hands down....the best!
This was an extreme level of hard work hats off the team and especially tom sir🙌👏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

He’s really living his best life
Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but that helicopter stunt is probably the greatest actor-performed stunt of all time. Likely one of the best stunts every for a movie, period.
This man is insane... and insanely entertaining
broke his leg while shooting mission:impossible. with all the money to spend, this guy is just amazing. his mentality is different
Tom Cruise doesn't act, Tom Cruise does. If you told dude his next role was as a NASA astronaut, Tom would fly the rocket himself.
He learnt all those things for a movie scenes, amazing 😯
As a career pilot, I'm not really afraid of heights, but... damn, it makes me nervous just watching Cruise do his thing. ☺
Now, even though Tom flew in an F-18 Super Hornet, he was not the pilot. He was in the back seat of an F-18F. The Navy would not let him actually fly the plane (he did ask though).

this guy is actually insane man, what an interesting life he has lived.
Christian Jackson
Christian Jackson:
The man was, and will always be a legend..
The Burj Khalifa stunt was just insane. No other actor would have done that.
Dave O
Dave O:
I can't believe he put in 2000 hours of helicopter training for a movie. I've been flying for 6 years now, with 3 years of it as a full time job, and I just hit 2100 hours
Patriot Clint
Patriot Clint:
Though I don't really like Tom as a person, I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. He has a lot of real talent and understands how to mitigate risk to allow participating in seemingly dangerous activity safely. I know. I was a skydiver for 2 years.
Barry Leslie
Barry Leslie:
Jesus Christ, that is incredible. I know he's a bit nuts but that is really impressive!

I would have died 8 times… respect to this guy 🙏🏾
Tom Cruise and Jackie Chan are the definition of pure dedication!

Tom cruise is a legend ! There need to be a documentary about his stunts
I would love to see him get casted in John Wick. Even as a small role, his abilities & passion for film would really work out for him on the JW set.
He is the only actor that would I call A HERO ..... He really proves that AGE IS JUST A NUMBER ❤️❤️❤️
But INSIDER you didn't include that jumping scene from building in which Tom cruise actually got hurt or fractured his leg(not sure)
Genius Apple
Genius Apple:
Plot twist: Mission Impossible is not a movie series, but Tom's life.
G L O R Y:
Stuff like this is the reason Cruise has managed to still be a top grossing movie star all while completely avoiding the Superhero movie era
Tore Strand
Tore Strand:
Mr. Cruise is an amazing person and actor. His acting and stunts speak speak for themselves. Apparently he is nice to everybody on set and is a fantastic guy. Loads of celebs have said he's the nicest guy. But the one wrong choice he made, in my world, is Jack Reacher. Tom can act pretty much any role, but he can't play six foot five.
Clutch Genes
Clutch Genes:
Although he might have some weird takes with the whole scientology stuff (might have to do with the fact that he's insanely rich and clearly bonkers enough to do this stuff).. The dude is impressive and I love most of his movies. Especially knowing that whatever he's doing is probably real, just makes it that much more nuts lol.
It makes a movie like 10 times better when you know the actors are so dedicated.
Jim Johnson
Jim Johnson:
Wow, my respect for him went way up.
Dude is literally just turning himself into a weapon by training and everyone thinks he's doing it for the cinematic experience.

This is crazy. May he live long ❤️

Mailyn Montes:
Tom Cruise is fkn Amazing!! What a badass to do that himself NO stunt doubles!, loved them all! Can’t wait to see what else he has coming!!!
Tom Cruise: i dont need a stunt double

The Camera man: me too
No other actor would have done that. TOM CRUISE 😍😍😍
even though he believes in the curch of space bip boop...
you still have to hand him credit for being so EXTREME

No amount of CGI or Green Screen will ever compare to actual real life footage!
Pascoal Dsouza

Very courageous stunts.
Need a strong heart to do..
Well done Tom...

Directors must hate him. The amount of extra money he must cost the production.

Director: Hey Tom we need a scene where you jump out of a plane. Let’s prep by the green screen.
Tom: I’ve got a better idea.
Director: For fucks sake.

Can’t imagine how much they went through to make these movies

The real reason Elon Musk created SpaceX is so that Tom Cruise can film Mission Impossible 7 in space and Mission Impossible 8 on Mars.
The all amazing Tom Cruise. May he always be safe. 🙏🏻❤️

Jurgen de Nederlandse:
TOM CRUISE always was my inspiration when a boy, 30 years ago.
Thanks to TOM I study to be Sailor (Merchant Marine) and Yacht Skipper... and also soldier, 30 years ago.
He is a living legend.
Elijahs Bro26
Elijahs Bro26:
damn, talking about a guy who likes perfection on all his movies.
At the diving part:
"Training his body to use less oxygen"
Training his body to use oxygen more efficiently. Not less.
A very important distinction.
4:04 "the stunt had to be perfomed over and over until the actor and the crew felt they got it right. 8 times".
I think Tom Cruise just wanted to have a ride on the most adrenalinous amusement ride of all, so he went "naaaah, i blinked there, let's do another one"

My anxiety balloons 🎈 whenever I think of him doing the helicopter stunts. Idk what it is, probably my vivid recall of that fateful flat spin when we lost Goose. Props to you pal!
Tom Cruise is a legend for a reason.
Hamza Ali
Hamza Ali:
Props to cameraman and tom cruise for doing the daring plane jump scene!
"While flying a helicopter, the actor can't let his hands get off the controls" now that's a deep insight.

"Cruise and the cast had to actually fly fighter jets". Now, considering that most people who even wanted and applied to fly fighter jets will never be able to, I'm not so sure if "had to" is the correct phrasing. And they got paid.

"Cruise is always finding new ways to top himself" - I hope he's alright

What I learned in this video: Tom Cruise is basically Ethan Hunt in real life.
Kowan McGarry
Kowan McGarry:
My favorite stunt from Tom Cruise is when he was hanging off the side of the plane.
Tom Cruise is by far the biggest real life hero Hollywood and beyond have ever seen!!! the man deserves an Oscar for genuine bravery , what a true hero , Tom Cruis is in real life , deep respect for this Gigant of a Man!!!

Tom Cruise , You are a legend salute to your dedication .

"Tom is nuts". He is really unbelievable fearless human being .
Everyone talks about Tom Cruise's stunts, but nobody talks about the cameraman.
That man is living the life.

I would love to see Vidyut Jamwal in an MI movie asking side Tom, both doing stunts on their own. A treat to watch💯

6:15 correction: the zero g plane doesn't actually free fall (lol) but the pilots perform an inverted parabola. Pushing the stick away when going into descent after the climb produces zero g.

I don't understand how Tom can even walk with balls that big! 🇺🇸
Joe Banter
Joe Banter:
“Wasn’t happy til he did the take 8 times.” Nah stupid, he was happy with the first, he just realized how fun it was to hang on to the side of an airplane.

"I will always see if it can be done..." Tom Cruise never said.

Me: scared of getting in a plane

Tom cruise after clinging to side of plane: we’ll, I had contacts
Elias Gonzalez
Elias Gonzalez:
If Tom cruise was ever to appear in a Star Wars movie , he would probably study one year of physics and develop an actual space ship and fly it and find tatooine
Flying Pen and Paper
Flying Pen and Paper:
1:52 that's even more impressive than the Burj Khalifa stunt, in my opinion!
His dedication is insane
Hey bro, collieflower
Hey bro, collieflower:
With all the stunts that he's doing, he should be the highest paid stuntman. 😂
