Okay so now let’s get serious… Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is one of if not the best action movie of the summer. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the comic book movies that come from the Marvel camp but this movie was just plain exciting and fun. It's filled with jaw-dropping action, premium stunts (some even performed by Cruise himself!) and elements of comedy that bring the movie back down to earth.
I honestly never expected this franchise to survive as long as it has since the drop off of the second film in the series. The first was good, the second I'd skip, however the 3rd film found it's footing once again setting up the awesomeness that was the 4th installment, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. And now with Rogue Nation, these films just get better and better with this one that is right on par with Ghost Protol. Cruise himself proves once again as well by doing his own large stunt that he earns every penny that he earns for these movies. Cruise has said time and time again that he is very proud of this film franchise and it definitely shows in the production of this most recent one. Not neglecting the rest of the cast, Tom Cruise is reunited with previous cast members Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner and new comers Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin. Short of The Avengers, this cast has to be one of the strongest emsemble casts of any action movie that we've seen yet.
All in all, this movie is a blast! Awesome action, great timed comedic moments... it's worth checking out on the big screen. Watch it on IMAX if you can for the full experience.
