Mission Impossible Rogue Nation Movie Review


Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation is the fifth installment of the Mission Impossible film series. Tom Cruise, once again returns as IMF agent, Ethan Hunt. What does IMF stand for? Why, Impossible Mission Force, of course.

Unfortunately this time there is also an organization full of rogue agents known as the Syndicate. The Syndicate is determined to destroy the IMF by committing even more violent acts – blowing things up, killing heads of states. Unfortunately, the CIA Director played by Alex Baldwin, successfully manages to shut the IMF down, calling their ability to complete assignments “more luck, rather than skill.” What a blow to the ego that is!

Joining Hunt are his trusty sidekicks Benji (Simon Pegg) and William Brandt (Jeremy Renner). Ving Rhames also rejoins the cast, but it feels like his role/screen time is severely reduced in the latest installment. The female lead, Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson), is the one character adding the most mystery to the mix. Is she a good guy/gal or bad guy/gal; just whose side is she playing on with her sleek, ninja cat moves?

No review would be complete without mentioning the iconic – Ethan Hunt hanging on to the side of the plane stunt. Tom Cruise, loves performing his own stunts and this stunt was no different. A cargo plane loaded with nukes, aka “the package,” needs to be stopped from taking off. The very first scene jolts off with an adrenaline rush as we watch Hunt running and jumping on to the plane; while yelling at his trusty techy sidekick Benji to “open the door, no the other door.”

Like a professional athlete, as far as action movies are concerned, Tom Cruise is getting older. You could never tell it from looking at his buff physique and watching him swing from the side of a plane, but there comes a time when even the most extreme athlete and action hero needs to pass the reigns on to the younger generation, preferably before it becomes an embarrassment.

So what about that love interest? Even though the audience can see the sparks between Ilsa and Hunt, this time it was all about the action, except for a peek of promise here and there. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good love story as much as the next, but sometimes it’s better when it’s about the action without trying to muddy the waters with a love story.

Overall, I give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars.

Details:

Rated: PG-13 While pretty mild on language, there is still plenty of violence, but very little blood.
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Run time: 131 minutes
