MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is a 2015 American action spy film written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. 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.
After intercepting nerve gas being sold to terrorists, Impossible Missions Force agent Ethan Hunt is convinced he can prove the existence of the Syndicate, an international criminal consortium. Reporting to an IMF substation to receive his next orders, Hunt is captured by the Syndicate, but escapes a torture chamber with the help of disavowed MI6 agent and Syndicate operative Ilsa Faust. Meanwhile, CIA director Alan Hunley and IMF agent William Brandt appear before a Senate oversight committee and thats where it all begins…
Rogue nation has a simple philosophy. It tells you the story, it then tells you again and then reviews what it just told you. The opening scene is ghost protocol style but a lot faster which heightens your expectation. The movie then takes off from there. This is a return to basics. It uses ideas from all the other mission impossibles but this is a more physical movie. Lots more physical stunt work. If I were to say if this was good or not… I would say cruise has hit this one out of the park. You know abrams, he likes to go back to basics and this impossible mission goes back to what makes the mission impossible franchise works. It isn’t a fight of tech to tech but of mind to mind. Very good story. I especially liked the chemistry between cruise and the leading lady. You could tell there was something there. You could tell they cared about each other but you never saw them do anything. What you saw of her was a completely capable action hero. Anyone who has read any of my decent reviews knows that I hate feminist action heroes with a passion but this one actually works. She isn’t there for canon fodder. She is vital to the story without being overpowering. Like a good perfume… Enough of my ideas… go see this movie…. Its well worth it… and I haven’t even told you about the comedy which was spot on by the way… Great movie now get off that phone and go watch this masterpiece….
