Mission Impossible Rouge Nation: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) finally confirmed that the Syndicate isn't just a myth, and now he is even more determined to track down this rouge organization. However, the CIA headed by Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) forced to shutdown IMF and move all its resources to CIA. Ethan refuses to stop his mission and tries to recruit his old team to help him out. At first, he is clueless where to start but a mysterious British double agent (Rebecca Ferguson) helping him out might be the key in shutting the Syndicate once and for all.

Rouge Nation marks as the fifth installment in this successful franchise and at 53 years old Tom Cruise is still kicking some butt and making crazy things possible at the same time. In 2011, Ghost Protocol injected more fuel and brought adrenaline into this aging franchise; it's a good thing that they managed to carry the same formula from where they left off.  The film is originally scheduled to be released in December but changed plans to avoid a collision against the next Star Wars Film. It is a good move considering that Mission Impossible really fits for a Summer Blockbuster season release.

When we first saw the trailer, we immediately added this film into our anticipated movie for this year. Thankfully, Tom Cruise and his whole crew didn't disappoint us as the film opened in a brisk pace and never slowed down. It generated non-stop action sequences that some might leave you breathless and made you hold onto the edge of your seats. The film is known for having insane scenes and tremendous action pieces that are neatly done. We got a lot of it here in Rouge Nation, and the two hour run time might leave you asking for more.   

Tom Cruise is still solid as Ethan Hunt. After watching him last year battling aliens in "Edge of Tomorrow", Tom Cruise proves that he has a lot more left in the tank and Hunt isn't ready to retire. Despite his age, he still makes his own stunts and make it energized as much as possible. Rebecca Ferguson is arguably the hottest and baddest leading lady of this franchise. She is a gem throughout and knows how to maintain the mystery that revolves around her character. Simon Pegg still provides the much needed comic relief, and Alec Baldwin is a welcome addition.

Overall, Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation is the best film in this franchise. They hinted that it may be their last mission but thankfully, there is already a green light for the sixth film. The series never gets old, and I hope they could release the next one sooner. 

If only Mad Max: Fury Road wasn't released this year; Rouge Nation will be an easy pick for our favorite film released so far in 2015.
