Breathtaking is the very first word that comes to mind when I think of “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation”. Don’t kill me, but I haven’t been the biggest Mission Impossible fan. However, this installation to the franchise changed my mind and guess what, I plan on binge watching the Mission Impossible movies I’ve missed before Summer ends.
Boring scenes can truly be a bummer, thankfully those are non-existent in this Summer’s spy film. Furthermore, I was on the edge of my seat for practically two hours; this movie didn’t give me a break. The film itself hit me with a barrage of action, twists, and a few chuckles, basically the recipe for what makes a classic action flick. Plus it’s Tom Cruise! Can you seriously go wrong? I don’t think you can; we love that man!
Let’s talk about Rebecca Ferguson. She was gorgeous on camera, and her acting was very solid. I feel like her, and Tom had great chemistry throughout the film and the love interest part of the movie happening in front of me seemed real. The plot took so many unexpected turns so I honestly couldn’t predict what would happen next, when Ethan Hunt fooled the enemy, he fooled me too!
One thing I enjoyed very much were the visuals, and I feel as if visuals are always one of the best things J.J. Abrams brings to the board. Every scene was captivating and shot at the perfect angle, there were even scenes that shot in a unique way we haven’t seen before and that’s something I appreciate. The Mission Impossible franchise has been running for quite some time, but the people who put these movies together are still finding ways to be innovative. Going out to your local theater to see this bound to be smash hit will guarantee a relaxing outing with your friends or family.
Warning: Mission Impossible theme song may get stuck in your head!
Until next time!
