Watch Ethan and his sexy spy friends as he wears super-realistic masks, hunts down moles, battles the inventor of a super bug, breaks into the Vatican, faces off with assassins, escapes from exploding bridges, infiltrates the Kremlin, gets in a bunch of car and motorcycle chases and hangs off the ceiling by wires, a lot.
