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 is Tom Cruise's fifth Mission: Impossible adventure as Ethan Hunt. It's built on the same foundation as the four preceding films, meaning there's lots of thrilling action, death-defying stunt work, and violence (stabbing, shooting, explosions, hand-to-hand combat), though much of it is stylized and choreographed, and it's relatively bloodless. Swearing is infrequent, though "shit" is used, and there's not much in the way of sexual content (just flirting) or drinking/drugs (a bit of social drinking by adults). Teamwork and loyalty are running themes of the series.
