Review by Lucía Santiago Dantés
The best summer/blockbuster movie! Writer-Director Christopher McQuarrie not only refreshed the franchise but also Mission Impossible Rogue Nation is a great action movie with awesome sequences. This is exactly what you expect when you go to see an action movie.
Agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) this time is up to an underground organization called the Syndicate, but captured and tortured by it. Faust (Rebecca Ferguson helps him scape but you’ll wonder if she’s using Hunt for her own benefit or she’s just doing her job as an agent. With Ilsa, it could go either way. She’s intriguing but also a fascinating character, and I would say the same as Hunt: nice shoes!
Meanwhile CIA director Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) dismantles the Impossible Mission Force, along with agent William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) leaving Hunt the run but determined to prove the existence of the syndicate. So he asks Benji (Simon Pegg) for help and of course in less than you know the whole crew is back doing the impossible, possible. With the help of Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and Brandt the chain of suspense and action is set to give the audience, the hell of a ride on the cinematic world of espionage.
What I loved about this film is the way it makes you think about what’s going on with the characters. Friend or foe? Who knows? As the nature of all characters are just damn good hard players. Needless to say it’s the “must movie” of the summer.
I don’t want to spoil it to those who hasn’t seen it but I just one more thing about Mission Impossible Rogue Nation: Can we have more please?
