Movie Review: Mission Impossible: Rogue-Nation

It’s a mission 19 years and counting.

Hanging off the side of a plane, Tom Cruise plays the role of IMF agent Ethan Hunt in his new movie, Mission Impossible: Rogue-Nation. While investigating a secret, rogue terror organization known as the Syndicate, Hunt’s suspicions are confirmed as the IMF disbands and the Syndicate pounces at the chance to start their global terror operation. To make matters worse, Hunt doesn’t know the identity of its leader.

Full of explosions and high speed chases, Mission Impossible: Rogue-Nation has many show stopping stunts, most of which were done by Cruise himself, who is 53 years old. Having not watched any Mission Impossible movies before Rogue Nation, I felt as an action-adventure movie fan that this film is perfect for the summer. As I sat in the chair at the theater, I could feel my heart pounding out of my chest as Hunt fights to survive underwater for three minutes. The plot was not your typical spy-action movie plot and it featured a variety of plot twists. In addition, Simon Pegg’s character Benji provides comical relief in an otherwise action-packed movie.

I have no complaints about the film. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is filled with action, adventure, and special effects that help give the audience a feel of how impossible the mission is. From high speed motorcycle races, Hunt hanging off the side of an airplane, to tons of plot twists, and with the promise of a sixth film, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is the movie of the summer.
