Tom Cruise is perfect for action films. He's a magnificent actor, but what separates him from the rest of the pack is how dedicated he is to making sure he puts his own personal touch on his stunts. It's well-documented that he doesn't like using stuntmen, and in [Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation](tag:373501), at 53 years old, it's clear that whatever fountain of youth this dude visits is the real deal.
This exclusive clip from Paramount - featuring one of the many awesomely suspenseful action sequences from the film - places Cruise under water, attempting to complete an important time-sensitive task with a super strong current of water pushing against him. See for yourself how he attempts to conserve energy while doing...well, the impossible.
Yes, Cruise was actually under water for this ridiculous scene, and yes he does in fact do the impossible. The movie hits theaters today and I strongly suggest you sample it for yourself. Rogue Nation lives up to the rest of the films from the franchise and - as cliche as it sounds - the twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat.
