Film Review: The Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

DIRECTOR: Christopher McQuarrie STARRING: Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Simon McBurney, Jingchu Zhang, Tom Hollander, Jens Hultén, Alec Baldwin, Mateo Rufino USA/CHINA 2015


The Mission Impossible franchise is back! Let’s start by saying Tom Cruise is top notch in this new incarnation as Ethan Hunt, it’s probably his best performance in the all Mission Impossible franchise. Rogue Nation is ambitious, adds new elements, more ironic humour (Jack Reacher style), a retro TV show approach in the way espionage is portrayed, more similar to 007 franchise. Filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie takes the seat on the fifth instalment of the series, which makes perfectly sense regarding how everything went perfectly well with Jack Reacher, also with Cruise on it. Meanwhile, new faces like Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner were essential for the new and fresh approach of the franchise.
