I should probably state that I haven’t seen Mission Impossible 1, 2, or 3 at this time and I am a horrible human being. But at least I saw Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocal to understand this film.
Basic Summary: 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.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation or as I like to call it, “You better be paying attention and taking notes”. The story continues of the already big franchise Mission Impossible. Let’s face it, the real reason I watched this film was because of the trailer . . .
HE IS HANGING ONTO A FREAKING PLANE AT TAKEOFF!!!
That, my friends, is capturing an audiences attention. The story is the same as always, “Here is a mission, if you chose to accept it and why wouldn’t you at this point? It is impossible, but we know you will find a way”. This storyline should be exhausted out by now, but somehow every time each film feels like a breath of fresh air. For once I actually don’t have many problems with this film. The comedy was spot on and kept running jokes throughout the film, the action is out there and crazy, they bring back some of the cast from the last film, and they keep you guessing until the very last minutes of the film.
Would I recommend this film? HELL YES!!
Would I see the next one? YES YES YES.
