Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is a 2015 American action spy film written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. It is the fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible series and was preceded by Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011). It stars Tom Cruise, who reprises his role as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt. It is produced by Cruise, J. J. Abrams, and David Ellison of Skydance Productions. In the film, Hunt is on the run from the U.S. government as he tries to prove the existence of the Syndicate, an international criminal consortium.
With the IMF now disbanded and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, a new threat called the Syndicate soon emerges. The Syndicate is a network of highly skilled operatives who are dedicated to establishing a new world order via an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Faced with what may be the most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a disavowed British agent who may or may not be a member of this deadly rogue nation.
Ethan (Tom Cruise) is back with his team to be on their most impossible mission. In this movie, they fight against Syndicate- an international rogue organisation who are dedicated to destroy IMF. The Director of the movie, Brad Bird has once again proved that no one can beat Tom Cruise in action. Just the right amount of suspense and elements from the last MI movies, makes it even more worth watching. The story line and action sequences makes it just all more thrilling to watch.
All in all, this is a film which will keep you engrossed during its over two hour run. Like all other MI films, the story has some crater-sized holes but then, that’s a discussion for a later date. We were never here for the script, were we? Instead, grab that popcorn and get ready to be hypnotised by Cruise and his perfect blockbuster with the perfect franchise formula.
Mission Impossible franchise has gathered momentum and there’s just no stopping it. MI 6 is something of a cert. The only question on which we are ready to take a bet is how Cruise will try to get himself killed this time.
It definitely deserves 4/5. Tom Cruise, U r just untouchable.
