Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation Movie Review


Daredevil secret agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) takes on his most dangerous assignment yet in Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation. Acclaimed screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) directs the fifth installment of the high-action spy series, in which Hunt's top-secret Impossible Missions Force (IMF) squares off against the Syndicate, an international league of highly skilled assassins. As the Director of the CIA, Alec Baldwin disbands the IMF -- and then proudly reinstates the questionable covert organization after the impossible mission is accomplished.

Cruise insisted on performing some of the stunts himself, such as the opening scene in which he wing walks and hangs on the side of an Airbus A400M. A BMW M3 battles with an armada of BMW S 1000 R motorcycles in chases that look real -- because they are. Not everything is the result of CGI magic.
