    Looking at the list of films split into two parts I was surprised to see some good films listed.

    It might be selection bias, but I think it might be a good sign.

    Clearly the producers have enough faith in the film to give the director that level of artistic control.

      I think Tom Cruise and everyone else with say here has been very hayppy with Christopher McQuarrie, given that he is the only Mission: Impossible director to stick around for multiple entries.

      I kind of miss how the series used to bring in a new director for each film. It gave each one a very unique feel.

        Tom Cruise has largely worked with only three directors since 2013.

        Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion, Top Gun: Maverick)

        Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, American Made)

        Christopher McQuarrie (Mission Impossibles & Jack Reacher in 2012)

        Exceptions include Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and The Mummy both of which were commercial and critical flops. So I think Cruise (who can do whatever he wants) only wants to work with a specific group of filmmakers.

          Christopher McQuarrie also wrote for Edge of Tomorrow, American Made, Top Gun: Maverick, and The Mummy. Of McQuarrie's last 10 film credits, only one was not also a Tom Cruise project. I am starting to think that they really like working together.
