On the 318th episode of Piecing It Together, Amanda Guarragi joins me to talk about Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One. One of the year's biggest movies (especially after Tom Cruise's insanely successful Top Gun Maverick last year), we get into what works and what doesn't with the latest in the long running action series. Puzzle pieces include Terminator, Now You See Me, Oceans 11 and Uncharted.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One and the movies we discuss!

Written by Christopher McQuarrie

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie

Starring Tom Cruise, Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Pom Klementieff, Esai Morales, Vanessa Kirby, Shea Whigham
