mission impossible posterI love how each Mission Impossible has a completely different vibe to it, which each has a feel to it that completely separates it from the others; in a good way. Having different directors each turn was a smart idea on their part.

Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation plot for me was so damn smart, it had me second guessing everyone so much. Rogue Nation exploring the moral realities of spy programs hidden so deeply from their own governments that they’re essentially working their own agenda. The Syndicate was a British op running without the PM’s knowledge, and the entire IMF continued to operate despite being dissolved by the feds and then hunted by the CIA. It makes me wonder just what kind of unaccountable brinksmanship is actually shaping international relations in reality.

This movie also had a great sense of comedy without over egging it. Rogue Nation also the most well-acted Mission Impossible film of them all,  Rebecca Ferguson looked gorgeous all throughout the movie and also very good in her role. The ending was a nice twist, most of action scene was suspenseful and left me a big grin after leaving the theaters.


Synopsis: With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan 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, who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation.
