I definitely have to give the best stunt to the Burj Khalifa climb, as that was sweat-inducing edge of your seat stuff and the fact that he did it himself on the actual building is insane!

But my favourite film of the franchise definitely has to be MI:3 - I love JJ Abrams as a director, and the third film is so well paced, and SO tense all the way through because he's trying to save someone he loves. Just awesome!

My favourite of the films is by far DePalma's original and I'd have to say that had you put the infiltration of the C.I.A. headquarters in the list it would have sealed my vote. But for sheer scale I've had to go with the Burj Khalifa set piece. It's immense. A nod also to the 3rd film's night-time skyscraper 'slide'.

Still can't believe Cruise did those stunts on the Burj Khalifa. I went up it last year, and let me tell you, there's not a thing on God's green Earth that could make me go on the outside of that thing.

its a bit of snooze after the car chase but really wakes up with the bike chase at the end.

I loved MI:2 the most of the films released, as I was raised on John Woo films.
Despite some really hammy dialogue, the Spanish scenes at the beginning are gorgeous, and the film really sets the characters into place before the first bullet flies.
The climb is a great stunt, but for sheer cinematic orgasm, the bike chase at the end takes the cake and eats it whole.
From the mental slow-mo bridge jump to the stoppie spin and shoot (a stunt that it is possible to match on GTA 5 btw). For the sheer spectacle on the big screen that sequence is my fave of all action movies.
