You can say what you want about Tom Cruise – and people usually do – but when it comes to his Mission: Impossible stunts he has no problem getting his hands dirty.

If we tried some of the stuff he’s pulled for any of the M:I flicks we’d probably have more than dirty hands…

Anyway, the video below features some of the helicopter work for the forthcoming Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Rather than just green screen it, Cruise actually spent oodles of hours learning to fly a helicopter for real. That’s dedication.

Check it out just below the standard next line…

Mission: Impossible – Fallout is set to hit Australian cinemas on August 2.
