Tom Cruise, please keep making Mission Impossible movies. Save the blockbuster!
We've recently engaged in a conversation about how even though it seems that more movies are being released than ever, are there any real bonafide blockbuster flicks anymore? We mean large-scale, gigantic production, action-packed, global blockbusters. The answer is yes. Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is everything an action-adventure blockbuster movie should be and its star, Tom Cruise, is better than ever.
With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate. These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces their most impossible mission yet.
We pretty much loved everything about this movie. The plot keeps you guessing, but isn't too convoluted to follow. The action and stunts are nothing short of spectacular. The movie is visually appealing from the first scene to its last, from the stars to exotic locations. Tom Cruise, please keep making Mission: Impossible movies. We love them all and they just keep getting better.
