Tom Cruse continues to show the world that he is able to frolic through a physical production like a young buck (who, BTW, just turned 53) with no problems. He was injured 6 times in the making of MI, but all is well and MI – Rogue Nation is a big hit. Still electing to do his own stunts, Tom has signed up to do a sixth sequel, to start filming in 2016.
Rogue Nation stars Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust (known for Starz’s series The White Queen). Rebecca displayed some pretty fancy moves and was an added delight to the cast. In this sequel, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruse) must prove that an international criminal consortium known as the Syndicate exist against their organization (IMF). CIA director, Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) thinks Ethan’s Syndicate theory is just that, a theory, so he dismantles IMF, dissolving them into the CIA and goes after Hunt causing him to go rogue. Hunt is captured by the Syndicate but gets away to start his journey to prove their existence. The Syndicate is headed up by Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) who will stop at nothing to discredit IMF and get what he needs to keep the Syndicate well financed and undercover. The Syndicate employes various skilled and dangerous villains like Janik “Bone Doctor” Vinter (Jens Hultén). Their skill level and intelligence is tantamount to IMF. There are many, many twist and turns, car and motorcycle chases, hidden agendas, special effects and thrill soaked scenes. There’s some corny and humorous scenes and some very intense scenes as well as some totally unbelievable scenes. The entire IMF gang was there, William Brandt (Jeremy Renner), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) and Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames). I thought Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was very entertaining, well acted and had a pretty descent plot. Can’t wait for the next sequel. Check it out!
