Here we are at the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. And also most likely the best in the series so far. So what's the story? After the disbanding of the Impossible Missions Force, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is captured by a network of criminal agents known as the "Syndicate" who plan on unleashing a series of terrorist attacks across the globe. But he escapes thanks to one of the "Syndicate" operatives themselves, Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) whom claims she wishes to help Hunt take down the syndicate, but she might be keeping some secrets of her own. So Hunt assembles his team yet again in order to take down the "Syndicate" in what might be their most impossible mission yet.
Rogue Nation contains about as much highly stylized action as you've come to expect from any Mission Impossible movie. And each scene is perfectly paced and full of edge of your seat thrilling excitement. This is one of the few movies that you will rarely be bored with. The cast was also outstanding. Tom Cruise is still the star of this franchise, Rebecca Ferguson also pulls off a wonderful performance, Jeremy Renner as usual is outstanding, and top it all off with great performances from Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Alec Baldwin, and Sean Harris. And it also knows when it should slow down. It's not constantly trying to shove exposition and plot down your throat and mix it all in with mindless action scenes, that's what Michael Bay movies are for. The film knows exactly when it needs to calm down and when it needs to get moving again. And trust me when I say you'll be glad when it starts to get moving again. Rogue Nation is all in all an exciting, funny, stylish, and action packed thrill ride that is definitely worth both your time and your money. And I'd also say it's a movie that's worth seeing in theaters more than once as a matter of fact.
