Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Many franchises get worse as sequels are added, but I’m very excited to see what the next Mission: Impossible has in store. Tom Cruise, the American Bruce Lee, returns again as Ethan Hunt.  Tom Cruise may be getting old but he’s just as capable at doing stunts as ever, he proves this in the movie’s first scene, even before the title card reassures which movie you’re watching, Tom Cruise is hanging of the side of an airplane as it takes off, to reassure which movie you’re watching for you. It would be hard to follow the action of the fourth film but the fifth manages just fine, and even exceeds the action. With every Mission: Impossible movie, there is unbelievable luck with characters but with this installment, it feels more realistic,  as far as realistic goes with these movies, but it doesn’t take all of the fun away. There was one scene though that was extremely lucky for the main characters in which their car got into a terrible accident and they walked away with minor injuries. This movie has many smart actions by the characters that no one was expecting, and a lot of this film is actions that weren’t expected and it never gets dull, repeatative, or predictable, which can be very hard with a series like this, just when you think everything has been done, Ethan Hunt pulls another trick from up his sleeve. The problem with these movies are the villains, they want something bad to happen but then Ethan Hunt comes in and saves the day, which can be annoying for some but I’m fine with it, as long as each movie introduces cool new characters, or gadgets, or whatever. This movie is good.
