Hands down, these are the ballsiest Tom Cruise stunts in movies

Movie: Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
Year: 2011
Stunt: Climbing the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai.

Ethan Hunt is back as the skilled IMF agent and is sent to get to the bottom of the bombing of the Kremlin. During one particular mission, he was forced to scale the Burj Khalifa skyscraper located in Dubai (officially, the tallest building in the world). Tom pulled that off on his own with the help of a harness that held him at 1,700 feet off the ground. When speaking in the car show Top Gear, Tom explained that he preferred doing such things himself as opposed to giving that task to someone else.
