Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023)
If reports are true that President Joe Biden was inspired to take executive action on AI after watching Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, then it may prove to be one of the most influential films ever made. Within the film, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) makes it his personal mission to destroy The Entity, an AI that has already gained sentience and set its own agenda for the world.
The entity’s reach extends to the physical world thanks to Ethan’s old rival Gabriel (Esai Morales), who has true faith in its plans for the future. When a beautiful thief named Grace (Hayley Atwell) walks into the middle of this conflict, the Entity forces Ethan to choose between saving her or his long-term love interest, Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson).
