Mission: Impossible--Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible--Rogue Nation

Action, Adventure, Thriller

Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

The critical consensus

Easily, almost nonchalantly, best in franchise, Rogue Nation dispenses with the dead weight of realism or relevance for state-of-the-art thrill-making in a classical mould. The series has finally found its voice.

Such is Tom Cruise’s rock-hard commitment to being an action hero you have no choice but to accept this most convoluted of sequels.

***(*)(*)Henry Barnes, The Guardian, 24/07/2015

Christopher McQuarrie keeps the franchise fuse fizzing with machinations a go-go and some precision action.

****(*)Jamie Graham, Total Film,24/07/2015

Another slice of glorious mayhem from a franchise that continues to play to its strengths and deliver the goods.

****(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 27/07/2015

Its plot line doesn’t bear too much scrutiny and its characterisation is sketchy but the action itself is frequently exhilarating.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 29/07/2015

Tom Cruise’s unlikely survival as a traditional action hero continues with this spy-thriller franchise’s fifth instalment, which makes no significant attempts to update the formula.

One or two seriously awesome moments aside, there's very little of note here.

Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 30/07/2015

Cruise really does give it his all throughout, clinging to his last guaranteed moneymaker the way Ethan clings to the sides of planes. It’s good to see he can still soar.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 01/08/2015

The film is too long and I was never certain what the villain’s ultimate goal was as he seems to be a terrorist without any ideological agenda, but this is good summer fun and probably the best in the series.

****(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express 02/08/2015

Tom Cruise still does all his own stunts, and Rebecca Ferguson’s femme fatale is a marvel, but the new Mission: Impossible is strictly by-the-numbers stuff.
